Welcome to the Year 4 Homepage!

Autumn Term: Second half

Our text in English for this term is 'Leon and the Place Between' by Angela McAllister! Year 4's classroom was temporarily transformed into a circus and we have looked at clips from Cirque de Soleil and The Greatest Showman to develop a rich vocabulary surrounding the magic of the circus. Using the book's amazing illustrations by Grahame Baker-Smith, we are creating our own circus style posters incorporating collage techniques to combine text and images.

In Science, we will be looking at Electricity and our Geography topic this term is a European study using geographical skills with a focus on France.  We will be continuing to learn about Christianity in RE.

During this half term, we will be focusing on the following themes in Maths:

Number: Addition and Subtraction

Measurement: Length and Perimeter

Number: Multiplication and Division

Remember to keep practising your times tables, using ‘Times Table Rockstars’ and please see Year 4’s Maths Class Page for further games and activities.

On Monday afternoons, we will be continuing with our Guitar lessons with Simon, Jack and John, our 'Music For Life' teachers.  In the Spring term, the children will be playing Samba instruments and in the summer term they will learn brass instruments.  There will be two mini concerts at school and the dates are Monday 2nd December (Guitar) and Monday 30th March (Samba).  In the Summer term, there is the Northgate Arena Concert (Brass) on Monday 13th July (approx. 7pm) where our Year 4 children will play alongside children from other schools.

On Wednesdays, we will have Games lessons and on Fridays, we will have Gymnastics with Mr Bell.

Associate Teachers:

Every Tuesday, Miss Bennion and Miss Adams will be supporting groups in class as part of their BEd training.
