Welcome to Ireland

Our curriculum, news & events

Class Ireland is a great place to be at Forest View.  Mrs Bee is our class teacher. During the year, we will also be working with Miss Lindley and Ms Smith, who will both be teaching our music.   Mr Clarke will teach Games in our Thursday PE lessons and Ms Marshall will be teaching our handwriting lessons.  So we will certainly get used to working with different people.  Mrs McClymont will also make an appearance covering for Mrs Bee when she takes her Lower Key Stage Leader time.

Our class is full of enthusiastic and friendly people. As a class, we work hard to complete challenges and aim to work as a team at all times.   However, it is also important that we try our hardest to become independent learners too.

Our motto is Consistent Quality – which is something we strive to achieve throughout our work.

Autumn Term

During the Autumn term, Year 4 will be travelling back in time to join the Ancient Egyptians.  We will be learning about daily life for both the rich and poor, how the Egyptians wrote, what treasure were to be found in their tombs and most importantly how to mummify a body.  We will link our work in English to the Egyptians by writing an explanation of mummification whilst in science we will learn about digestion and each of the internal organs.  In art we will be trying our hands at sculpture and in music having fun learning songs from Abba. We’re really excited about getting to know each other as a new class and working together on our enterprise project.

This is our Ireland class blog to let you know all that we have been doing. You can link to and read details of all forthcoming events and upcoming activities opposite.

Toothy experiments

Year 4 are investigating the effect that sweet drinks have on our teeth.  We have set up a fair test using egg shells instead of teeth and have placed each of the “teeth” in a different liquid: orange juice, apple juice, milk, water, cola.  We kept on tooth to act as a control.
