Year 4

Welcome to Year 4!

 

Mrs Hale, Mrs Jones, Mrs Dale and Mrs Millard 

 

Welcome to Year 4's page. Here we will keep you updated on what has been going on in Year 4 over the year. 

 

PE

Indoor PE kit consists of blue shorts, a yellow t-shirt and black pumps. For Outdoor PE lessons children will need a kit that will keep them sufficiently warm and dry so a tracksuit, trainers, clean socks and a lightweight waterproof jacket would be ideal. 

 

PE kits should be in school every day but the days we have our lessons are:

Indoor PE: Tuesday

Outdoor PE: Wednesday

 

Homework

Children will be expected to access the Rock Stars times tables from home and complete activities. This can also be completed on a written sheet. Children will be expected to read at least four times per week and reading diaries will be checked every Friday. Topic homework will also be set each half term. This will take the form of a project based on what they are studying in school. Should any children not return their homework on time, it will be expected that they will complete it at homework club. 

 

Star of the Week, Writer of the Half Term and Mathematician of the Half Term

 

Each week we will pick a 'Star of the Week' along with a fabulous half termly Mathematician and Writer. Maths work and writing is on display in our achievement corridor. Have a look to see who has been awarded the titles so far...

On Thursday 3rd October it was National Poetry Day. The theme this year was 'Truth' and we had great fun talking about fake news and times when the children have told a lie! We then wrote poems about what we had discussed.

Today was a fantastic day! Finally the children were allocated a brass instrument to play all year and take home. They were so excited! Parents- sorry! Remember it is really important to practise as much as you can.

On Thursday 10th October we celebrated National Space Week by researching facts about the moon and writing them on moon shaped paper. We also created moon pictures using a mixture of paint, foam, glue and flour! They are now hanging from the ceiling in our classroom and look fabulous!

Friday 11th October

We had an amazing time on Friday on our class trip to Conkers - there was a Stone Age theme! We met a Stone Age Man and learned a lot about everyday life in the Stone Age, including; how people hunted for and farmed food, how they traded with other tribe members, all about their weapons and their religion. 

Tuesday 5th November

Today we had an afternoon of computing with Mr Richardson. We worked collaboratively to create a Wiki about the Stone Age. Click on the link below to take a look!
