Class 4

1066

The title of this term’s Learning Journey is probably the most famous date in English history… we’re travelling back to 1066! King Edward is dying, so we’ll explore the possible contenders who could be next in line to be King and argue why they have the right to rule over England. We’ll research the events of 1066 using books and online information. What was the Battle of Hastings, and how did it change our country? We’ll discover what life was like as a Norman living in Britain. We’ll be history detectives, looking closely at the Bayeux Tapestry and sketching parts of it. In English, we’ll write emotive poems about war and get into character to write diary entries.

In Maths, we will be expanding our place value knowledge. We will then move on to addition and subtraction. As well as focusing on building upon our times table knowledge and having a quicker recall of these necessary facts. In science this term, the children will investigate different materials, as well as exploring their properties and how materials can change into different states.

This is a big focus this year, particularly with the Year 4’s having a times tables at the end of the year.
