Welcome to Redwood's class page. We pride ourselves on being a warm, friendly class, who are enthusiastic about our learning journey. We encourage a love of learning through a challenging enquiry based Learning Challenge Curriculum.


We have been learning new writing skills and consolidating skills learnt in previous years through different novels. The books and animations which inspire our writing throughout the year are:
The BFG 
Kaspar the Prince of cats.

Partly Cloudy - Pixar animation 



Children are encouraged to read five times a week at home - please remember to sign their reading diary every time they have read. 

Maths is taught daily and children will be continuing to develop the maths skills they learnt in year 3. It is very important for children to learn their times tables on a regular basis at home and they will be tested every Friday. 

Oakhill Alumno Curriculum
Each topic focuses on a question, which is then explored through individual lessons. We start each topic with a wow factor to engage children and enthuse their learning. Throughout the year we will be learning the following topics:

Autumn Term: Ice, Ice Baby!

In this topic we will explore the Titanic and the pathway from creation to the sinking. We will look at who was to blame for the sinking and what the people were like on board. Through this topic, we will be covering states of matter in science and performing lots of experiments looking at solids, liquids and gases. We will be starting our topic with an exciting experience day from One Day Creative all about the Titanic!

Our planned trips for this year are:
Titanic workshop

Chester Roman Experience

A field trip for science investigations
