Birchwood Grove CP School

Year Four - Autumn 2023

 Welcome to Year 4 at Birchwood Grove! We will put any information on this page, including planning, homework and anything else that may be useful. We will also use Parent Mail or Seesaw to update you.  Our curriculum is based around concepts, with every subject being linked where possible. 

Autumn Term 2023



Our concepts for the Autumn term are Influence, Truth and Belief and our focus subject is History.

Growth Mindset

Tostart our year, we have been exploring the importance of growth mindset. Using Flight School, a book about a Penguin who has a ‘Soul of an Eagle’, was the perfect book to help us do this. We have used Flight School to understand the importance of resilience and friendship whilst also using this as a chance to develop our scientifically knowledge of animals and how to classify them. To finish our growth mindset focus we created our own sequel of Flight School.
