Welcome to the start of the Autumn Term! Year 4 is going to be a busy year, but hopefully one full of fun and exciting opportunities. We are all very eager to get started.
Our topic for the Autumn term is ‘Indian Summer’ and our focus is all about India! Through this topic, we will explore all the treasures and wonders of India and develop an understanding of the culture and religion, as well as it's geographical features.
You can see from our ‘overview’ that we are planning to cover a lot in the coming months. In science we will be looking at electricity and sound. We will be digging deeper about what life is like in India, comparing things like the climate, the physical features of the landscape, homes, schools etc with what it is like in Tewkesbury. We will also be finding out about Indian style dancing and music, creating our own dances and teaching them to the children in other year groups.
Please help your child by discussing these topics and please do not hesitate to let us know if there is any way that you can support us within the class. Here are some of the things you can help your children with:
As always, please pop in and see us if you have any questions or worries.
