Year 4 2018 - 2019

Mrs Callender

Mrs Yearsley

Summer 2


Welcome to the final term of the school year.

This term we will say a sad goodbye to Mrs Newsham  We all wish her well in her teaching career and with Baby Newsham.


Our topic this term is Burps, Bottoms, and Bile 

Throughout this topic we will learn all about the human digestive system - especially the gory & gruesome details that children love most.

We will also learn about teeth - the importance of them and how we can care for them. We will be setting up our very own 'SJF Dragons Den' and the children will be making their own brand of toothpaste - including designing the packaging, making thier own jingle and advertising it.

We will be using the classic book The Twits during guided reading and will be writing our own versions of the nasty tricks the Twits like to play on each other.

We will also be reading The Demon Dentist as our book for pleasure.


We hope to arrange for a dentist to visit us during the term so the children can get some research in before they launch their own tothpaste. If any of our families know a dentist and could help with this that would be fantastic.


There is lots more planned this term.  We really want to end the year on a high.

As always we will post pictures and videos of what we've been up over the course of the term.
