During our English lessons we focus on a variety of different genre. At the moment Year 4 are looking at our non-fiction unit, The Shang Dynasty of Ancient China. We are creating our own factual reports based on an online ebook that we have read and explored as a class. The children are being encouraged to use the correct format and features in their writing to create a non-chronological report.

We have our own book corner in Year 4, and we are encouraged to read our favourite books and recommend others to friends. Make sure you read at home and sign your planner when you have! It is important to read frequently and understand the stories you have read.
In our Science lessons, we are learning about states of matter. During this topic, year 4 will be focusing upon solids, liquids and gases and how they are formed. Class 4 will be exploring the different states of matter and observing how they can change over time. The children will also be learning to understand the water cycle and the part that evaporation plays.
During our topic lessons, we are learning to identify human and physical features of the Americas. We will be exploring features from across North and South America, as well as completing research on the most famous landmarks from these countries.
