Welcome to St. Philip’s Primary


Year 4D



    How would you get to the Alps? 

     What will I learn today?

    Welcome back YDG. In Summer Term 2 we now turn our attention back to being geographers and in particular we will be finding out about what is so special about the Alps. In maths we will be focusing on symmetry, plotting co-ordinates and statistics. How well can you interpret information? In English we move to a brand new genre; Fantasy! Can you write a story set in a fantasy world? Science is all about investigating and using your observational skills. You've already proved that you can do this so can we get even better? I think we can! 



    Science...What does a 'good scientist look like?'


    Art and Design...What is 'observational drawing?'


    RE...What does dependency look like and why is it so important? 


    Summer Term 1; what did we achieve? 

    Another fantastic half-term Y4D! You should all be incredibly proud of the many successes that you have had on your individual learning journeys throughout Summer Term 1. You mastered the art of report writing and produced what I think is some of your best writing yet. You learned all about the Syrian refugee crisis and helped refugees in our local area by raising money for them. well done! In maths you investigated triangles and quadrilaterals and learned all about how angles work.
