Welcome to Nile class!

Our class teacher is Miss Ratty.


Our topic this term is:

Victorious Vikings

Our classroom

Our classroom has got its very own Viking longship!

We will take part in Viking activities in our ship and create our own shields to go in it.


We will start the Summer term off by exploring Viking poetry and song. We will then move on to explore and write explanation texts about ‘How to Train your Dragon. 

 Big reading


We will read ‘How to Train Your Dragon’, look at themes and language used in the text and learn about some authorial tricks the author has used.


We will continue to use No Nonsense Spelling scheme to support the learning of Year 4 spelling words and new spelling rules.


We will focus on these mathematical concepts:

•Multiplication and division facts in the context of time and measurement.
•Collecting,  displaying and interpreting data to prove/disprove a statement, involving time and measure.
•Solving practical weight and capacity problems.


Big Maths

We will also continue to work in our CLIC groups to support mental maths skill and plug individual gaps to accelerate progress.


Scientific and Technological Understanding

We will be learning all about electricity! We will explore how it is produced, used and its dangers. We will make our own circuits using a range of equipment and find faults in our circuits. We will then create our own switches and learn how different switches are used for different things.

We will create our own dragon puppet, with flashing eyes, in Design Technology. We will design the puppet and create a working prototype using circuits and switches.


Computing and Understanding the Arts


In Muisc and Computing, we will be learning how to create rhythmic Viking rowing chants using Garage Band.

In Art, we will design colourful Viking warrior shields and choose our favourite design. We will then create the shields, using sewing and joining skills.

Historical, Geographical and Social Understanding


  We will learn who the Vikings were, how they lived and what their lives were like compared to ours and the lives of The Anglo-Saxons. We will then learn about important events in Biking hisory as well as significant people.

In Geography, we will look at important settlements and how these have changed to become the major UK cities we see today.


Understanding Physical Development, Health and Well-being

We will be learning a wide range of outdoor games, using a range of throwing, catching and aiming skills. We will also work with the Premier Sports team to learn about healthy food and life style choices, focusing on wellbeing and diet. This will compliment our 'Healthy Me' PSHCE topic.



We will learn about Spanish food and how it is different from the food we might eat in Britain. We will practise ordering food in a restaurant and then say which food we like and dislike.


In RE, we will look at Sacred texts and stories and focus on their guidance and impact.
