Welcome to 4S, this term Class 4S are finding out all about life in Ancient Greece. We will be visiting the Palace Green library in Durham to investigate artefacts and take part in workshops about life in Ancient Greece. We will read some Greek myths and write our own Greek myth. We will find out about Greek Gods and about important inventions from Greek times. In Art, we will design a Greek pot or plate and make it from clay. We will make a building using columns in Design Technology. Do you think you would have liked to live in Ancient Greece?
It is vitally important to read regularly and in year four we expect children to read at least three times per week and have their planner signed. During lessons we will read numerous texts, take part in class discussions and answer comprehension questions. Currently our class novel is Who Let the Gods Out, which will help to develop our reading and will provide inspiration for our writing.
Each week children receive a piece of maths and English homework based on the learning that has taken place this week. The homework is set on a Friday and is expected to be handed in on Wednesday morning. Any problems regarding homework please contact a member of staff (4S).
In Year 4, we complete a timetables test. please follow the link below to practise, practise and practise.
