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 Rivers. We will learn about a river's journey from the source to the mouth, discovering many exciting meanders and tributaries on the way. We will make a Playground River, study a river of your choice in detail for a project and end the term by travelling to Greenwich and exploring the Thames foreshore - who knew there were so many treasures to find in the centre of London? Science will build on this, looking at habitats of our natives species. We have fish, rabbits and worms in the classroom to help us on our way.

Maths will include rounding, adding and subtracting and working with numbers of four digits and more. 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 write a biography about a Mars Explorer. We'll use Tim Peake's adventures to inspire us. After that, to fit in with the Village Scarecrow extravaganza planned for Harvest, we'll study poetry using The Scarecrows' Wedding by Julia Donaldson. We will use this book to plan our Harvest Assembly in October.

Along with Year 3 Warhol, we'll be visiting Tunbridge Wells Mosque. This is a wonderful opportunity to learn about Islam first hand, perhaps balancing the stories we read in the papers and see on the news.

Art is - of course - in the style of Monet, particularly river and water art.

We are looking forward to an exciting term ahead.

Our Long Term Plan can be found here.
