This half term we are starting our ‘Ancient China’ topic. We will be looking at the history of Ancient China and the Shang Dynasty we will be linking this to our knowledge of places we know in the world. In science, we will be looking at the electricity and in computing learning how to create a multimedia presentation. In English, we will be learning lots about the Ancient China through the story of the ‘Willow tree pattern story’ and using our writing skills in a variety of ways. Our maths skills will continue to develop as we begin our learning about place value and ordering and comparing numbers. PE will partly be outdoors so please ensure your child has the appropriate kit. We will be learning about both striking and fielding games, building on catching, striking and teamwork skills as well as using our bodies to move in gymnastics.


We are looking to encourage children to read as much as possible so please help to remind your child to read every day and tick their reading sheets in homework books. In year 4 this year times tables are going to be looked at very closely. So if you have a spare few minutes test your child on their times tables or using the website hit the button. There will also be a weekly times tables test sent home as part of their homework.
