Our Year 4 children are taught in Pavender Class.
Pavenders were non-talking, rainbow-coloured fish that lived in the oceans of Narnia. You can read about them in the book, 'Prince Caspian'.

What we do:
In Pavender Class we cover all subjects within the National Curriculum. We focus on the enjoyment of our learning as well as challenging ourselves in all subjects. Everyone works really hard to achieve their best in all areas of school life. Our literacy work is often cross-curricular and makes links to work in science, geography and history. In maths we build on and develop skills learnt in previous years. We cover the four methods of calculation then moving on to problem solving. In addition to this we study data handling, shape space and measure. We do our best to give children practical experience in maths for example through cooking and measuring.
This term our topic work is focused on changes in Britian from the Stone Age to The Iron Age. We will be learning about late Neolithic hunter - gatherers and early farmers. We will also be learning about Iron Age hill forts and art and culture. In addition to this we will be making the most of our local area and carrying out studies of Avebury and Stonehenge. In our science work this term, we will be continuing our topic on Investigating Sound.
