The Village Academy

The Village Academy is a group of town, city and village schools that have joined together to provide the very best education for the children in our care and where we believe that education is very much a matter of the individual.

Class page: Year 4

This term we will be revisiting the four operations in maths and continuing with fractions and decimals. We will also continue to practise the fluency of our basic maths skills, with a particular focus on times tables.

In English we are reading the book KrinkleKrax and using this great story to enrich our own writing. We have already been learning about apostrophes for contraction and possession and building on our knowledge of inverted commas. To develop the quality of our writing we have been editing and improving our own and our friends’ work and have been focussing on including exciting sentence openers, similes and metaphors.

Our topic for the next two terms is The Vikings. To complement our work in class, we are looking forward to a visit from The Living History team who will give us the opportunity to experience Viking life for ourselves. We will also be making Rune stones and a 3D Viking village.

Violin lessons are continuing this term. We are getting better and are beginning to sound quite tuneful on Wednesday mornings.

There has been much excitement during the rehearsal of our class assembly, plus a lot of skipping and laughing. Children have worked very hard to perfect some tricky moves around the May pole and in our Morris dance.

Shepway Sports Trust have been working with us in PE and we have been developing our skills in Tag Rugby.
