Year 4

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 Maya and Aztec civilisations. With the help of our friends at Hands on History and the money raised with our class fundraising, we have a treasure chest full of artefacts to explore. We will also have an all day Maya creative workshop with our friends from Capel Primary School led by the Mexicolore company on 2nd March.

Science will be all about our bodies and the digestive system - lots of experiments. After half term we will look at Sound and use our pets to explore whether bigger ears = better hearing.

Maths will include rounding, adding and subtracting, multilication and division, 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 stories from other cultures, focussing on Christophe's Story, a thought-provoking tale about a child and his family fleeing from the Rwandan War. This will tie in with our RE topic on Journeys.

To build on the skills we have learnt already in Art - including painting reflection and movement in water - we will create Maya murals and masks.

We are looking forward to an exciting term ahead.

Our Long Term Plan can be found here.
