Amazon Class 21-22

< Back to class list

Welcome to Amazon Class!

Our teacher is Miss McBride and our teaching assistant is Ms Ghosh and Mrs Tormey.




Here is the lovely Amazon class in their Red, White and Blue!


To start our final term, we have just started exploring a brand new book called ‘Until I met Dudley’. It is all about understanding how everyday technology works (and the much more fun made up reasons how it works).

Keep an eye out for some amazing work…



In Amazon, we have been continuing to explore formal methods of multiplication and division to help us with our multiplication check. We have also just wrapped up our lessons on long division and short division and have now moved onto ‘time’.

Understanding the World

In RE, we are exploring the Bible and explaining how and why it is important to Christians.

In History, we are continuing to explore how Britain was conquered by its early settlers. In the last term, we explored the Anglo-Saxons, Picts and the Scots. Now we are learning about…

In Spanish, we are exploring a well-known children’s story: ‘Goldilocks and the Three Bears’. Or rather ‘Ricitos De Oro y Los Tres Osos’.
We are going to explore all the different vocabulary from the story and then retell the story in Spanish.


Understanding Science and Technology

In Science, we will be learning how to identify and group different animals based on key features.

In DT, we will we exploring how to make lightboxes. We are using our previous knowledge and skills of circuits, from our previous science units, to help us understand how lightboxes work and how to make our own.


Understanding our Health and Well-Being

As Sports Day fast approaches, all of year 4 are preparing to practise each event so the children can have the an amazing time on the actual day!

Understanding Art and Culture

Last term, we were inspired by the famous Pop Artist Andy Warhol. We looked at the different techniques he used to create his iconic ‘Campbells Soup’ picture. Here are some of Amazon’s creations:


As the end of year 4 is coming to end, here are some lovely photo memories to think back on…

Home learning

In line with the rest of the school, we encourage your child to spend time reading at home each evening. This can be recorded in their Reading Record by an adult or by the child.

As the Multiplication Test occurs at the end of Year 4, we encourage your child to spend 10 minutes each evening practising their skills by playing TTRockstars.

Each Friday, we set homework on Google Classroom. We post a selection of activities and ask that your child has a go at completing three different activities. They should spend no more than 20 minutes on each activity.

Water bottles

We ask that your child brings a named water bottle to school each day. These are kept by our sink so that your child has free access to them throughout the day. Your child can refill their bottle at one of the water fountains when they need to.

PE kits

We ask that your child has their PE kit in school each day of the week as our timetable is subject to change due to the weather and the availability of space. In line with our school uniform policy, they require a pair of plain blue jogging bottoms and a pair of socks for the winter months as we may have our lesson outside.
