Year 4 - China

China Class


Welcome to China Class!

The teachers in Year 4 are Mrs Matthews (China Class) and Miss Wilkinson (Egypt Class).

The teaching assistants are Mrs Mackay and Mrs Suida. 


We hope that you will have a wonderful year with us. We have lots of exciting learning opportunities planned! Our topic for Term 1 is 'Groovy Greeks'. For this topic the children will be exploring what life was like as an ancient Greek, designing and making their own Greek pottery and creating a Greek lyre to use in their own compositions.

We would be grateful if you could take the time to talk with your child and support them using the Knowledge Organisers. Separate guidance on how to do this is available in the Practice Books.
