Welcome to Class Four


In Class 4 we will be having a very busy Summer Term.  Our topic is The Tudors and we will be studying the reign of Henry VIII and Elizabeth I and life in Tudor times. As usual, we will plan and complete a range of activities to develop our keys skills. However, this term we will be taking a different approach to our topic work.  In addition to exploring a historical theme and the skills based work we will be doing in class, each child will choose an aspect of conflicts throughout history which interests them and they will then plan and complete a project of their own.  They will then use this project to inform a Big Write which will be an information report.


In art we will be studying and creating Tudor portraits.


In maths, will continue to develop our calculation and problem solving skills as well as using our mathematical skills to draw and measure angles, including missing angles accurately. We will also be problem solving using 2D and 3D shape.


In Science, following on from our work on Habitats and Adaptation, we will be studying the lifecycles of a variety of plants and animals. 


During the Summer Term we will also undertake an Adventurous Outdoor Activity as part of the PE curriculum.  We will take part in a Mountain Challenge which will involve Year 4 reaching the summit of Murton Pike and  Year 5 navigating and walking to the summit of three peaks, Barrow, Style End and Outerside.


Spelling homework will continue to be given on a Monday to help prepare for our Friday spelling test. 

Maths homework will be given out on Friday to be completed over the weekend and handed in on the following Monday.
