Welcome to Year 4!
Year 4 are taught by Miss Simmonds and Mrs Pullin, ably assisted by Ms Bramwell and Ms Dalton.
This half term, we will be learning about mining and we are looking forward to having miners from Bilsthorpe Heritage Museum come to talk to us on Wednesday 25th September before our exciting trip to the National Mining Museum in Wakefield on Monday 30th September. In the second half term, we will be finding out what life was like for children in Victorian times and we will be off to Perlethorpe Education and Environmental Centre on Tuesday 19th November to dress up as Victorian schoolchildren and experience what they had to do to learn and behave! In science, we will be learning about the journey of food through our body by exploring the path of the digestive system before going on to learn about electricity in time to find out how fairy lights work on our Christmas trees. In R.E., we will be finding out about Hindu beliefs and will find out all about Diwali. In order to keep fit, we shall be doing gymnastics and invasion games in P.E. and in art and DT, we shall be making Davy lamps, headstock collages and puppet theatres in addition to learning all about Georges Seurat (a Victorian artist). For more detailed information, please click on the Curriculum Information document, below.
We will also be learning how to create 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 Mining, so maybe they could have a go at creating some headstocks, making a model of a mine, creating a factfile on mining or Victorians or even making a moving model of a coal tub! The deadline is Wednesday 13th November but you can bring them in any time before 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!
Please let us know if you are able to help out on any of our trips. Without support, they would not be able to go ahead. Many thanks.
