During our English lessons we focus on a variety of different genre. At the moment Year 4 are looking at our non-fiction unit, Incredible Sports. We are creating our own articles based on an online magazine that we have read and explored as a class. The children are being encouraged to use their own imaginations to description in their writing and use the correct features of a journal article.

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 living things. During this topic, year 4 will be focusing upon the classification and identification of animals. In particular, the children will be able to group living things based on their attributes, and understand the working of classification keys.
During our topic lessons, we are going to be learning about Settlements. We will be exploring hamlets, villages, towns, cities and mega cities. The children in year 4 have begun to create their own advertisements on hamlets and villages, explaining why they feel that they would be great settlements to live in. We will also explore Stafford town in more detail, identifying the features that make Stafford a town.
