Welcome to Year 4

We are having a very busy year where we will be continuing developing a range of skills, knowledge and discovering and learning lots of exciting new things.  We will also work towards becoming more independent learners.

Spring 1 Learning 2020

This half term in Year 4  we continued learning about the Ancient Greeks, their beliefs  and their architecture. We have enjoyed making vases, painting on them the Greek patterns. We shared our learning about the Greeks during our class assembly.

On Maths Day, we had a great fun playing maths games with our parents, dressed up in mathematical costumes or as a famous mathematician.

During our geography sessions we learnt about the volcanoes, how they are formed and where we can find them in the world.

Also we prepared and participated in our class mass with Father Dominic. Moreover, our class speed stacking team took part in the area finals and came second – well done!

Autumn 2 Learning 2019

This term Year 4 had a busy time taking part in lots of different activities. We enjoyed our Ancient Greeks workshop where we learnt plenty of facts about the daily life in Greece.

We also participated in the Environmental Fair where some of us tried to be the loudest.

During our Guided Reading sessions we have enjoyed reading newspaper articles.

We have also taken part in the Speed Stacking competition and had lots of fun competing against other schools. We won the Borough Competition and now we are preparing for the County event.

Autumn 1 Learning 2019

This term in Year 4 we have been learning about the Greeks, their beliefs and architecture. During our Literacy sessions we learned about poetry and Greek myths. We read and performed a few poems and focused on the Prometheus and Pandora myth.

In our math sessions we have been focusing on place value, rounding numbers, different mental strategies, addition, subtraction and concrete representation using the base 10.

Our RE learning focused on the stories from the Bible so we practised how to find certain passages in the Old and New Testaments.

During our PSHE sessions we were learning how to be a Caring Friend and how to work as a part of a team. Also, we took part in a Road Safety project where we learned how to be visible and safe near the road.
