Year Four: Notts County and Nottingham Forest

This term, we have been reading Varjak Paw by SF Said. We have also been writing poetry and will be working with the poet Manjit Sahota, who will help us write a poem based on the National Ice Centre.

In maths, we have focused on fractions. We have looked at equivalent fractions, mixed number and improper fractions and will be learning to add and subtract fractions.

In history, we have been learning about the Shang Dynasty: a Chinese dynasty that was in power around 3000 years ago. We have been using different artefacts from the Shang dynasty to understand what life was like for ordinary people, and to investigate famous figures such as Fu Hao.

In science, we have been investigating all things ‘sound.’ We have been learning about pitch, frequency and volume and have been able to link this to our InHarmony session in which we have been playing a range of brass instruments such as the trumpet, trombone or baritone.

Our P.E days are on Friday, so please ensure your child is wearing their P.E kit.

Nottingham Forest’s outdoor learning is on Monday.

Notts County’s outdoor learning is on Tuesday. Please ensure that your child is wearing sensible clothes as we’ll be outside.

Here’s the knowledge organiser for the work we’ll be doing this term:
