Welcome to Class 4 Homepage
Welcome to Class 4!
During the Spring Term, our topic is ‘Extreme Earth’.
We will learn about the destructive powers of nature, from volcanoes and earthquakes to tsunamis and tornadoes. In addition to this, we will learn about how and why these natural phenomena occur, and the ways in which they affect people and the environment.
In English, we will be studying the amazing book, ‘The Somerset Tsunami’ by Emma Carroll. We will be writing biographies about the lady herself, Emma Carroll; letters from the point of view of Ellis to his sister Susannah, explaining his reasons for running away; a ship’s log entry as Maira before she meets Fortune, when she’s at sea carrying a sugar cargo for Mr Spicer; an information text about a boat, which the children have designed, just like Fortune Sharpe and poetry which could be performed to the king.
We hope you enjoy looking at our work and finding out what we have been doing!
