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. 


Term 3

Our topic this term is 'The Lost World', which links to our Science topic Habitats. We will be investigating local area habitats as well as thinking about the wider world and the environmental impact humans are having on it.


In English, we will start the term by reading the book 'The Journey Home'. We will use it to inspire our own research which will lead to debating and writing on endangered species. Later in the term, we'll use the book 'The Lost Words' to create our own acrostic poems. At the end of term, we'll be writing some persuasive letters to local companies.  We are very excited to get investigating!

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.
