Turtles (Year 4 AS)

January 2021


Our new topic is called "Raiders of the North" and will be centred around our learning on the Anglo-Saxons and Vikings. This topic will build on the children's prior knowledge in terms of the changing face of Britain from the Stone Age through to Roman rule. It promises to be a very informative and exciting term!

Our English lessons will also be focused around this topic, and we will be delving into reading legendary tales such as 'Beowulf' and then writing our versions of these "defeating the monster" stories. In Maths we will learn about Multiplication and Division and then progress onto studying fractions and decimals later in the term. 

There will be learning about Holy Journeys in RE as well as coding in Computing.

It promises to be a really fun and exciting term and we cannot wait for our Viking-themed educational trip to Ufton Court in March!


Kind regards, 

Miss Quinn and Mrs Monks
