Year Four - Opal and Pearl
The team consists of Mrs Ritchie, Mrs Ellams and Mrs Vassal. The classes are supported by Mrs Turner.
This is a pivotal year for our children making sure they are on track for what upper key stage two has to offer. We believe that children learn best when they are engaged and enjoying their learning therefore we provide them with a variety of trips, visitors and hands on experience across all areas of the curriculum. Throughout the year, we have the opportunity to learn outside gradually building up their skills and confidence of working and playing in the natural environment.
Some of the key topics we cover in year 4 include: Anglo-Saxons, Europe, electricity, Hinduism, and Egyptians. All of our learning is complemented by creative projects such as making gliders in Science, using junk modelling to build Anglo Saxon villages in History and using Mod Rock to design landscapes in Geography.
Wherever possible, we encourage the children to start becoming more independent, to make the right choices and take pride in all their work. We aim for them to leave our year group with a zest for learning and love of life which will propel them onto the next stage of their learning.
