Welcome to year 4

Information for Classes Kenya, Holland and Australia

Year Four is a great place to be at Forest View.  Our class teachers are Miss Warren, Miss Stannard and Mr Mawer. During the year, we will also be working with Mr Clarke, who 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 practice. We also read lots of great books and build a love of reading which encourages you to do lots of reading at home.

Keep updated with Year 4’s learning by following The Forest View Academy on Facebook.

Autumn Term

Year 4 has a great start to the year with lots of interesting topics! We learn 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 through the pipes and into our homes.

We also learn about Hinduism, particularly about the festivals Diwali and Holi, we have a visitor called Sunita who teaches us more about Hindu beliefs and we even have the chance to make a diwa lamp and learn some traditional dance.

Spring Term

Spring Term is very busy for Year 4. We 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.

As part of our RE topic on Pilgrimages we visit Southwell Minster to take part in the time travelling event; we will do lots of activities linked to the journeys pilgrims take around the world.

During Spring term our swimming sessions start which is a great opportunity to become more confident in the water, learn about how to be safe around water and to have fun!

Summer Term

In the Summer Term we learn all about the Roman Empire and how it impacted Britain. We make some Roman inspired Mosaics.

Our Residential Trip to Caythorpe PGL is set to be a highlight of the year with lots of fun outdoor, team-bonding activities planned.

We also create some wonderful art work that is inspired by music.

I am sure you will agree that there is a lot to look forward to!
