Welcome back to our second term in Year 4! Our Topic question this term is ‘What would it have been like to live in Tudor times?’ We will be learning all about the different Kings and Queens of the Tudor period and how they lived. Alongside this, we will be exploring Tudor settlements and houses through construction our very own Tudor house replicas! If you have any interesting pictures or information about the Tudors that you would like to share, please feel free to bring it in so we can share it in a show and tell session.

Our new RE topic entitled ‘Called’ is all about those who are called by God through the power of the Holy Spirit.  Our Big Question for this topic is ‘What does it mean to be called and chosen?’ We will be exploring how we would respond to being called by God and learning about the sacrament of Confirmation and how Christians are given the gift of the Holy Spirit and are called to respond in their lives.

We will be completing regular spelling and grammar sessions to support our English work. Ensure you are practising your spelling words every day, including additional words which follow the same spelling patterns we are focusing on each week. Daily reading should also take place at home to support our guided reading and comprehension sessions in school.
