Year 4

In Year 4 at Manor House School, pupils have a busy time working hard and thinking for themselves.

The individual care that each of our girls receives is enhanced by the amount of time they spend with their form teacher on a daily basis.

Science, French, Computing, Art, PE, Music, Drama and RS are taught by specialist subject teachers.  English, Mathematics, Humanities and PSHEE are studied in their base class with their form teacher.

In English, we enjoy all aspects of the written word.  Sharing poetry, writing stories and creating newspaper articles are just some of our activities. Reading is, of course, essential to all our work, so we read as much as we can to hone our skills.

Our Mathematics work takes place every morning, and we work in groups so that we can ensure that our work is tailored to suit the pace of our learning.

Our topics in Science include habitats and adaptation, and we are able to use our beautiful grounds at Manor House School to enhance aspects of this area of study.  We also find out about teeth and eating and electricity.  Plenty of hands-on work to inspire future scientists!

In Humanities, we study both historical and geographical topics.  The study of natural disasters and their impact on our world forms part of the geographical work we do. We also study the reasons why people live where they do in both Guildford and Portsmouth.

The Tudors is a firm favourite with Year 4, as we incorporate two great trips to further our knowledge.  One is to the National Portrait Gallery Tudor Room and the other to Hooke Court in Dorset. This is our two night residential trip. While we are there, we do activities, some in full Tudor costume, which support our Tudor work, as well as encourage independence and self-confidence.
