The Best Wealth is Knowledge


Bats - Year Four

Spring Term 2022


Welcome to our class page.  We are the Bats’ Class!


Our Spring term’s topic is called “Eureka!” We are going to be exploring the world of inventors and examining objects and machines to understand how things work.


Our Stunning Starter – Bulking Iron Man a New Home

Fantastic Finisher - TBC


In Literacy, we are going to read the novel “The Iron Man” by Ted Hughes. We will be writing a variety of genres based on this novel such as newspaper reports, stories, poems and diary entry. We will be working hard on building sequences of sentences and using imaginative and exciting language. 


In Numeracy, we will be learning new strategies on how to calculate multiplication and division questions. Also, we will be learning about fractions, time, weight measurements and areas of shapes.


Our Science topic will be focused on machines and mechanics. We will be learning about forces, friction, magnets and light. Children will be learning some scientific facts as well as experiments in some investigations. Furthermore, we will be covering a variety of topics in our Cross-Curriculum lessons such as Chinese New Year, Welsh legends and myths, designing and building inventions, and working on our ICT competency skills.


PE lessons are every Friday – children are allowed to come into school wearing their PE kits. Please remember to wear warm clothing during these cold months, suitable footwear and a water bottle.


We would be very grateful if you could support your child by accessing these activities below – these extra activities would benefit them with their learning in school:

  • Log-in to Bug Club (Active Learn) to access reading material and numeracy games.
  • Practice times tables - Start with learning your 2x, 5x & 10x tables, and then progress onto 3x and 4x tables.
  • Work through your high-frequency words and speed sounds packs.

If you have any questions or concerns, don’t be afraid to message using our Class Dojo app. We are happy to help in any way we can!


We are so excited to be learning so many wonderful things inside the world of science.


Diolch yn fawr,

Mr Evans and Mrs Heywood
