4S Class Page

This autumn our topic will be Ancient Greeks.  We will learn about daily life in Ancient Greece and how Ancient Greece influenced our lives today. We will hopefully visit the Palace Green Library in Durham to investigate artefacts and take part in workshops about life in Ancient Greece.


Our Science topics will be Livings Things and Animals.  Our song this term will be Mamma Mia by Abba. In English we will be writing for a range of audiences and purposes including Greek myths, play scripts, newspaper articles and diary entries. In maths we will be studying place value and the four operations.

Our Curriculum 


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.

Extra Bits


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.
