Welcome to Year Four

Staff:

Miss Wells & Mrs Vicki

Mrs Breedon & Mrs Francis
 

We're now in Term 4 and are learning about Egypt. We will be finding out all about King Tutankhamun and the discovery of his tomb. We will be finding out about Howard Carter's expedition that lead him to the discovery. In art and design, we will be looking at Egyptian architecture and using that as a basis for designing our own Egyptian themed products.

 

As always, spellings homework will be handed out weekly and reading needs to be completed at least 3 times a week.

 

This term is also going to be a busy one with three themed weeks. Book week, celebrating world book day, commences on the week of Monday 4th March where the whole school will be focusing on the book 'George and the dragon' by George Wormell. The second themed week, science week, is the week commencing 11th March and Art week is the week commencing 1st April.
