Year 4 Lewis is led by Ms Sandu and supported by Miss Phillips and Mrs Kubat. Year 4 Dahl is led by Ms Shaikh and supported by Ms Ahmed.

This half term, our topic focus is on ‘Amazing Adventures in Ancient Maya’. They Mayans were one of the first civilisations to use the cocoa bean. To learn more about their uses for it and why it was important to their way of life, we will be paying a visit to Cadbury’s World. Here we will learn more about the significance of this civilisation.

Back in the classroom, we will use our new knowledge on the Mayans to write our own Myths, diary entries and fact files. The Mayans used myths as a form of understanding natural phenomena’s and explain the world around them. They came up with some fascinating and imaginative ways to describe the world around them. These Myths were carried down through generations, by word of mouth, as this was their main form of education. Mayans believed in many gods, who controlled different aspects of their life, so honoured them in many ways.

In English, we will be using the information we have learnt, in topic, to write myths and retell Mayan stories. Later in the term, the English focus will shift to diary entries- we will be looking at the key features and using these to inform our writing. We will also be looking closely at Alan Peat sentence structures and using these to enhance our writing.

Regarding Maths, we are revising areas and perimeters of 2D shapes and we’ll pass on to the next section, ‘Measurement’. We can measure the capacity/ volume, Area, Length, Weight, Time and Money. By the end of the term, we will be able to tell the time and convert different units of the time such as: seconds, minutes, days, hours, weeks etc. We’ll also learn about money, we’ll have good practice in handling coins, convert and learn to give the correct change when shopping. And we can use our money to buy chocolate, too!

We are all excited about what this term brings! Hope you will all enjoy it!
