Year Four will continue their learning in Spring learning about the classification of organisms in their Science unit 'Living things and their habitats'. In the Summer term, we will benefit fromlocal walks to learn about the history of Sandhurst from 1812 to learn about how our village has changed over the past 200 years. Our exciting class reads for the Spring term are 'The Lion, The With and the Wardrobe' and 'Just So Stories' by Rudyard Kipling which will form the basis of our guided reading and some English work. Our non fiction writing will take the form of biographies, where pupils will learn about the strucutural features of this genre as well as learning about key role models. RE this year will test pupils' attitudes to sacrifice and giving things up, in the run up to Lent and Easter. In maths, we will continue to review our work on addition, subtraction and times tables, with a greater emphasis on fractions and decimals.
