Year Four is a great place to be at Forest View. Our class teachers are Miss Warren, Miss Stannard and Mr Mawer. We are also lucky enough to have Mrs Roguz supporting us. During the year, we will also be working with Mrs Pearce, who will both be teaching our music and Mr Clarke will teach PE.
Our classes are full of enthusiastic and friendly people. In Year Four, 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.
Reading and Timestables are really important in Year 4. We learn lots of tricks to help you with times tables and we have lots of fun activities and games to help you practise. We also read lots of great books and build a love of reading which encourages you to do lots of reading at home.
This is our Year Four page to let you know all that we have planned for the year. You can link to and read details of all forthcoming events and upcoming activities opposite as well as follow us on Twitter and Facebook.
Year 4 has a great start to the year with lots of interesting topics! We will be learning about the Water Cycle, we even have a visitor from Severn Trent Water who explains how our waste from the sewers gets cleaned before being sent back to through the pipes and into our homes. We also learn about Hinduism, particularly about the festival and Diwali and Holi, we will be having a ‘Wow Day’ where you will have the chance to make a diwa lamp and learn some traditional dance.
After half term, we will move on to learning about Ancient Greece where will make vases out of clay and learn about the beliefs about the Ancient Greeks. Our science topic will be sound.
Spring Term is very busy for Year 4. We go to on a wonderful trip to the MRF where we learn all about recycling and what we can do to look after our environment. In English, we look at ‘The Day the Crayons Quit’ and re-written our own version about our shoes! We also learn all about the rainforest, we look at the canopy layers and the wildlife that you find in each layer and create some beautiful art work based on Henri Rousseau.
During Spring term our swimming sessions will start which is a great opportunity.
In the Summer Term we learn all about the Roman Empire and how it impacted Britain. We will also be doing some Roman inspired Mosaics and art that inspired by music.
In the Summer we are also hoping to be able to go on our rescheduled residential to PGL.
I am sure you will agree that there is a lot to look forward to!
