Year 4 Spring Term 2022

Welcome to 2022! We are proud of the resilience the children are continuing to show during these COVID times; daily the children show Moorhill values of: Ready, Respect and Safe.

Topic

Off we go to Mesoamerica to find out about the Ancient Maya!  We shall be learning about the Maya way of life and what they did for us.  If COVID allows, we have an exciting opportunity for the children to extend their learning on an Educational Visit - more information to follow.



Homework Project

The Maya discovered chocolate. Cook something with chocolate in it! It could be cake, chocolate pizza, it’s up to you. Please send Miss Waterfield or Ms Martland pictures of your creations through your portfolio on Class Dojo. Enjoy!

Helping at Home

Please continue to support your child’s learning this term by:

• Hearing them read at least 4 times a week and asking questions about what they have read.

• Encourage your child to practise spelling on Spelling Frame and to practise their times tables on TT Rock Stars.

Themes & Topics


Autumn

Our Autumn term topic is 'The Greeks'.

We look at the origins of the Olympics and the competitive nature they instilled within us.  We will research into the daily life of the Greeks. Towards the end of the topic children will organised their own Moorhill Olympics.

Spring

Our Spring Term topic is 'Aztecs'.

We will focus on the life of an Aztec, including researching their trading and chocolate. The children will make comparisons between the Aztecs and the Ancient Greeks.

Coming soon!

Summer


The Summer Term brings our ‘Safari’ topic to Year 4!

The children will act as travel agents, researching life in Kenya, including geographical landmarks, as well as the animals indigenous to Africa. Throughout the topic we will discover the colourful prints and designs on fabric and listen to the music that influences Kenyan lifestyles. The topic will land with the ‘travel agents’ selling their holiday experience to you, as parents, and entice you into the life of Africa.
