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 rivers in geography, animals and their habitats in science, learning about the journey of life through Hinduism in RE as well as looking at work from the artist Escher. We are learning to play the ukulele in music as well as doing gymnastics and swimming in PE. 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 have had some super Creative Curriculum homework. Well done to those who made an effort to bring theirs in and a great big thank you to the parents and carers who supported them. We will take some photos and post them on here shortly.
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.
