Year 4: Van Gogh Class

Vincent Willem van Gogh was a Post-Impressionist painter. He was a Dutch artist whose work had a far-reaching influence on 20th-century art. His output includes portraits, self portraits, landscapes and still lifes of cypresses, wheat fields and sunflowers. He drew as a child but did not paint until his late twenties; he completed many of his best-known works during the last two years of his life. In just over a decade, he produced more than 2,100 artworks, including 860 oil paintings and more than 1,300 watercolors, drawings, sketches and prints.

In Year 4 children have the opportunity to write in many different formats, have guided reading daily, visit the school library to get a book to take home as well as consolidating and progressing their learning in maths through number, shape, data handling and problem solving.

Reading books go home every afternoon and are brought to school every morning. We encourage the children to read every night. To support maths you could help them practice their mental maths and times tables (including for division facts).

Year 4 will perform an assembly about the things they have been learning. Parents are welcome to attend.

Reminders:

  • P.E. lessons are on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
  • Please return books every morning in book bags.
