Gruesome London

Gruesome London Topic Web

Welcome back!  We hope that you have had a wonderful Easter and that you are looking forward to the Year 4 Summer Term as much as we are.  This newsletter will give you information specific to Year 4 for the forthcoming term.

Please arrive at school ready for the classroom doors to open at 8:40am.  It is very important that the children are on time as timetabled activities will begin at 8.50am promptly. Please say goodbye to them outside in order to encourage greater independence.  They are to be collected from the playground at 3:15pm.

Our new topic is called Gruesome London. As part of this topic we will be learning about London during the time of the Stuarts between 1603-1837. Some events during this time include the plague, the great fire of London and the civil war. We will also be learning about how different (and gruesome) life was in the past and how fortunate we are to live in the present!

In Year 4 the children will have the opportunity to take part in ‘Festival of Voices’ and they have begun rehearsing for this already.
