Information for Parents/Guardians
A big welcome to Year 4 here at Fleetdown!
We would like to welcome parents, carers and pupils to the Year 4 page. We hope you find the information on this page useful and if you have any additional questions, please Class Dojo message your child’s class teacher.
Being in Year 4 means that we are working hard to build our independence and ability to learn in many different ways. We always demonstrate the three key values of Fleetdown Primary Academy: Respect, Responsibility, Equality.
This term, our topic is ‘Tomb Raider’. We will be learning all about the diet, lifestyle and work of the Ancient Egyptians! The Egyptians used a pyramid structure of society, with Kings and Queens and the top and slaves at the bottom. We will explore this movement, as well as why the Egyptians worshipped cats!
Get ready Year 4, make sure you have your exploration gear – we're going deep into the tomb...
Fun Fact: The afterlife was incredibly important to the Egyptians. They believed that by preserving a dead person’s body – which they did through the process of mummification – their soul would live on in the afterlife forever.
During English lessons, the children will be using and building upon the skills they learnt during Term 5. As we approach the end of the year, we push forward with the writing checklists and making sure to work hard with the likes of fronted adverbials, clause structures and advanced punctuation. We will do this by writing poems, leaflets and more!
In Maths, we will be continuing our learning of time, by applying this to real-life context, through timetables and more! We then move onto statistics and the use of numbers, before finishing with geometry and the properties of shapes.
