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.
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
Children will be expected to access the Rock Stars times tables from home and complete activities set. This can also be completed on a written sheet if internet access is problematic. Children will be expected to read at least four times per week and reading diaries will be checked every Friday so that children can be rewarded accordingly. 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.

This week we have been learning how to write instructions. We wrote instructions explaining how to make a sandwich then had great fun reading and following them in order to make and eat sandwiches!
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.
Friday 4th October
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.
National Space Week
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!
