Year 4

Welcome to Year 4

 Hello from Mrs Kettle, Mrs Phillips, Mrs Harvey, Mrs Edwards and Mrs Scott. We are looking forward to a fabulous Year 4. 

General Information 

 

P.E

For this term P.E will be on Monday and Friday for class 4PT and Monday and Tuesday for Class 4H.

 

Homework

Each week the children will be set Maths, English/Topic and Spellings.

The children need to spend approximately 30 minutes on each subject per week.

We also kindly request that the children continue to practise their reading and their times tables each week. It would also be beneficial if the children are carrying out further research and reading based around our current topic.

The Rainforest

Spring Term

 

During this term, Year 4 will be studying The Rainforest and Maya civilisation. For our stunning start, we boarded a flight to Manaus in Brazil aboard Straits Airlines. During the topic, we will learn about the geography of modern day Brazil and the Amazon Basin, looking at human and physical features and find out why the Amazon rainforest is so important.  We will also compare Brazil to the UK. Following this, our learning will move onto a historical focus where we will discover who the Maya were and how the Maya lived. 

Italian Adventure

 

Autumn Term

Our topic this term is called the 'Italian Adventure'.  Year 4 will be studying Italy and the Roman Empire. We will learn about the geography of modern day Italy and the continent of Europe, looking at human and physical features. We will compare Italy to the UK and study Italian regions in detail. Following this, our learning will move onto a historical focus. We will discover how the Roman Empire grew and study some famous people from this era. We will find out about the Roman army and understand the legacy left by these people.

Children in Need

 

Today all of Key Stage 2 held stalls in their classrooms in order to raise money for Children in Need. Here are some pictures of our Year 4 stalls set up ready for the Key Stage 1 children to visit. We would like to take this opportunity to thank the children for all of their organisation and hard work. Also, we would like to thank our parents for all of their support with this fund raising event. As a year group, we managed to raise £342! Well done Year 4!

 

 

 

 

Gymnastics 

We have been learning how to create individual and partner balances in our gymnastic PE topic this term.  At the end of the unit we created sequences that included rolls, balances and turns and then performed these to our classmates. 

Pottery 

We have enjoyed researching Ancient Roman pottery as well as looking at modern day potters in our art lessons this term.  We then took inspiration from the potter Grayson Perry to create our own bright and colourful pots.  We used the coil technique to create our pots and then decorated them with our individual designs.  

Persuasive Broadcasts

 

In Year 4 we have started exploring the genre of persuasive writing. While practising how to use a persuasive style, we have been budding broadcasters creating a short radio advert. Take a look at a few of the pictures of us performing our broadcast below.

Science - Our Invertebrate Hunt

Year 4 Multiplication Check

The DfE introduced a multiplication check test to check Year 4 children's fluency in their multiplication times tables. It will take place in school in June as part of our Year 4 curriculum.  The children will complete an on screen test to check their tables. They will have 6 seconds to answer each question. There will be 25 questions altogether.

 

To practise tables:

There are multiplication / tables games on our class page.

Children can use TT Rockstars.
