Welcome to Year 4!
Year 4 are taught by Miss Simmonds and Mrs Pullin, ably assisted by Mrs Cooper, Mr Devereux and Mrs Metherell.
This half term, we will be learning about Romans, animals and their habitats and sound in science, learning about pilgrimage and spiritual expression in the different religions in RE as well as getting fit playing rounders and cricket and doing athletics in P.E. For more detailed information, please click on the Curriculum Information document, below.
We will also be continuing to look at creating fantastic sentences in English using fronted adverbials and expanded noun phrases and practising our times tables skills. Keep learning those tables at home using your Times Tables Rockstars login details and use the link to Hit The Button further down the page to help you.
We can't wait to see the Creative Curriculum homework that the children bring in this time. Our topic is Romans, so maybe they could have a go at creating a Roman fort, labelling a Roman legionary with his armour, making a Roman shield, creating a factfile on Romans or even making a moving model of a Roman chariot! The deadline is Thursday 6th June but you can bring them in any time until then. Any early creations can have their photos put on the website to inspire others with ideas and motivation. We're very much looking forward to seeing what gets brought in this time!!
Also this term, we have our residential to look forward to. 4AP will be in Perlethorpe from Monday 8th July to Tuesday 9th July and 4KS will join them on Tuesday 9th July, returning on Wednesday 10th July. This is always a fantastic experience that the children love and talk about for weeks afterwards and all look back on with fond memories. It is not too late to book in if you haven't done so already! We will be organising a meeting for parents to come and see what the children will be getting up to and find out what they will need to take. You will also get chance to ask any questions you have. Watch this space...!
GLOW DAY March 2019
In the morning, all of year 4 walked to Pleasley Vale to see the journey of the River Meden. In the afternoon we made clay models of the course of a river from source to mouth. Also, we made origami boats out of paper and tested them on water to see if they floated. What a great day!
In English we have been enjoying reading Mr Stink by David Walliams. We have used the story to support us in our understanding of grammar including using pronouns, speech punctuation and subordinate conjunctions. Next week we are writing a persuasive letter from Chloe to Mr Stink, to persuade him to have a bath.
Anti Bullying Week 2018
We based our English work on a short animated film called 'For the Birds'. We wrote persuasive letters to ask Little Bird to stop being mean to Big Bird.
