Sycamore Class - Year 4

Sycamore class teacher is Mrs Oldfield.

Hello and welcome back Sycamore class! This term our theme is a geography one; Frozen Desert. We will be looking at the Arctic and Antarctic, especially focusing on the environmental issues that are happening in these beautiful areas of our planet.

We will be mainly using the book ‘The Last Bear’ to inspire our English work, learning about the environmental damage that is happening to these places that some well-adapted animals call home. We will be learning about the poles, latitude & longitude, and the equator in Geography. We will learn about famous polar explorers in History and how they survived such harsh conditions in those environments.

In Science, we will be learning about ‘States of Matter’ and the properties of solids, liquids, and gases. We will also be learning about sound and how it is made and heard.

In Maths we will continue learning bout multiplication and division and then study length and perimeter.

There is a new homework grid below to inspire you to create something wonderful. Please also remember to continue to read to an adult at home, learn your spellings and keep practicing your times tables.

PE days are Wednesday and Thursday. 


  If you have a query or concern, please talk to me at school pick-up, or preferably you can get in touch via the school office by emailing and I will get back to you via a phone call or email as soon as I can. I am always happy to answer any questions or support you with any home learning.
