Odd Socks Day
As part of anti-bullying week and odd socks day on Monday, children in Year 4 and across the school described how they were different and unique by writing on their own sock. Below are some of the fantastic work created by Year 4.
Year 4 have also been creating 'Kindness Trees'. Every child has had something kind written about them by their peers.
Pine Class will be sharing their learning all about The Romans with the school in their class assembly on Tuesday 20th November. Parents/Guardians are welcome to watch Pine Class' assembly on Thursday 22nd November at 9:05am. The children are looking forward to showing off their fantastic learning, we hope to see you there!
Throughout the term in History, we have enjoyed finding out all about the Romans and the impact they had on Britain.
One of the highlights of Term 1 was the Great Bread Bake Off. All of the children did a fantastic job of exploring different breads, they thought about the bread they liked and then designed their own. The children were then able to create their own bread using their design.
Term 2 -Settlements
Year 4's topic for this term is Settlements. As part of this topic we will be identifying important features of a settlement site, using maps to locate settlements, classifying land use in settlements and finally creating their own.
In Science this term, Year 4 will be focusing on Sound. We will be exploring how sound is made and looking at the pitch and how to change the pitch of a sound.
In art, we will be exploring sculptures. Children will be looking at and analysing sculptures from around the world. At the end of the term children will be creating their own sculptures.
Every Tuesday in the first term and every other Tuesday from Term 2-6, Year 4 will be lucky enough to take part in ukulele lessons. We are fortunate to have a brilliant ukulele teacher come to the school and teach the children.
Library will take place on a Friday for Pine Class and Thursday for Spruce and Fir Class.
Year 4 are not swimming in Term 2.
Instead of swimming this term children will be participating in Dance lessons in the hall. These lessons will require P.E kit including t-shirt and shorts. Dance will take place on a Tuesday afternoon for Pine Class, Wednesday afternoon for Fir Class and Friday afternoon for Spruce Class.
Games will take place on a Monday for Pine Class, Spruce Class and Fir Class.
Please make sure your child has a full PE kit in school at all times, including suitable footwear. For both Games and Dance please make sure that earrings are taken out.
All personal belongings and clothing should be clearly labelled with your child's name.
In Year Four, we encourage children to read every day or at least three times a week. Home school reading records are expected to come into school every day. The children will be able to change their reading book every day and will be sent home again. They will also be stamped if your child has read with an adult that day. Please sign and comment in their home school reading records whenever your child has read as they can then move up a place on our new Race to Read challenge chart. This is an opportunity for the children to receive certificates and other rewards for the amount of times they have read at home.
Every Friday afternoon the whole school will be participating in ERIC (Everyone Reads In Class) time for ten minutes. All adults and children will be reading at this time to encourage and inspire everyone to enjoy reading.
Children will be sent home with Reading Comprehension and Spelling Detective Home Learning every Friday to be returned on the following Wednesday. They will also bring home times tables on a Monday to practise and learn ready for the times table test on a Friday. Don't forget the children can practise their times tables online using Times Table Rockstars using the link below. Children can ask their teacher for their login if they need it.
