 Summer 1 Message from Miss Bamber

Hello again from myself and the Year 4 team of Mrs Shewan, Mrs Douglas, Mrs Bishop and Mr Wildhood. So here we are, two thirds of our way through the school year and into the Summer term already.

This is a seven week half term and we will be learning through three great topics. We will be learning about ‘Sound’ through science and music, ‘The Shang Dynasty’ through history and ‘Georges Seurat’ and the artistic style of pointillism. When we look at sound and music we will study aspects of rock music, its history and how it has developed over the years.
