Year 4 Monet Class

Teacher: Mrs Hart Dyke
Teaching Assistant: Mrs Brierley, Mrs Nicholls
Volunteers: Mrs Bourne and Mrs Kellas

Welcome to Monet Class.
"Every day I discover more and more beautiful things" wrote Monet. Let's strive to make our class a beautiful place to learn this year.

This term we will be looking at The Romans. With the help of our friends at Hands on History who will lead our exciting Roman Campout sleepover on 22nd June and Jeremy at Tunbridge Wells Museum, we will find out what made the Romans so successful in Britain. Lots of exciting things to learn and discover.

Science will be all about living things and their habitats. We'll hatch some chicks and continue with our Bird Watching Club, led by Alfred and our volunteer Mrs Bourne. After half term we'll look at States of Matter - freezing, melting, liquids, gases and solids.

Maths will include adding and subtracting, multilication and division, fractions, decimals and measurement, using formal methods to calculate. Our Mastery Curriculum means that we spend longer on the basics which means we are able to tackle very challenging tasks as term progresses.

In English we will look at chronological reports and we'll start by looking at the difficult subject of slavery. This will lead into lessons about Rosa Parks and her famous bus journey and we'll end up by making news reports on this, imagining that we were there at the time.

To build on the skills we have learnt already in Art we'll design and make Roman mosaics as well as designing an aquaduct. We will also be able to use the 3d printer and Sketchup.

In RE we will look at festivals and help celebrate famous ones from different world religions.

We will also enjoy our Lego Project on computing - we will make our own Lego Movie, working as a team and becoming designers, producers, cameramen etc - each child has a role they have to apply and be interviewed for. 

We are looking forward to an exciting term ahead.

Our Long Term Plan can be found here.
