Year 4 2015-16
In year four during this autumn term, we are looking forward to studying a historical topic of Monarchs since 1066. We will be looking at the key events that have changed Great Britain, such as the Battle of Hastings, to focussing on a variety of time periods within British history such as the Tudors and more!
Our Art focus this term
As our topic is Monarchs since 1066; we are focussing our artwork on scaling up the Bayeux Tapestries. This involves the children selecting & using the appropriates techniques to scale up their Bayeux tapestries to complete a much larger version. We are hoping that this collaborative piece of artwork will be going on display.
this half term will be looking at all living things; including how animals adapt to their surrounding and the seven characteristics of living things (MRS NERG).
During the second Autumn half term we shall be looking at spreadsheets. We shall be using Microsoft Excel and using a variety of formulae within this.
Homework should be completed to a high quality as class work. Each subject based homework should take around 30 minutes to complete.
