Hello and welcome to Year 4!
We are so excited to have everyone back in school for the Summer Term.
It is lovely to finally be able to welcome ALL children back into school. Our building finally has the life and soul back in it! Those of you who had to stay at home, you were missed! Those unfortunate enough to be in school, you did us proud with your resilience and perseverance.
Mrs Kenny is currently covering in Year 4.
This term, we are looking at Ancient Greece and our enquiry question is Was living in Greece a piece of cheese?
We are starting the term with a whole school DT project. We will be making Pneumatic Volcanos that we couldn't do whilst some of you were at home because you wouldn't have had the equipment.
Then we will be looking at History for 2 weeks as we explore Ancient Greece what countries made up Ancient Greece and all about how it influenced events today all over the world.
Geography moves onto us comparing Crete with Doncaster as we look at climate differences and what it would be like to live and work in the different countries.
In Art we will be making a clay pot just as they used to in Ancient Greece to record significant events on. These were known as a Primary source.
Then in Review week we are also holding a themed day on Wednesday 26th June. Mandi is making us a Greek inspired lunch and we will be dressing up in Greek robes called a Peplos or a Chilton. They had an undergarment and a cloak. You can make one of these very simply from a large white tshirt or even a flat sheet or pillow case!

Not sure what PE kit to provide? Please check below.
During Summer months:
Children are asked to wear black shorts and a white t-shirt. As most of the PE sessions will be outside, children will also need a change of footwear. Children should wear either trainers or pumps.
During Winter months:
Children are asked to wear tracksuit bottoms (black or grey) and a white t-shirt. Some PE lessons will be taught inside, so children should also bring shorts.
