Welcome to the Year 4 Homepage!

Spring Term: First half

The Year 4 Team would like to say a big thank you for all of our lovely Christmas cards and gifts.  We hope you have had a fantastic Christmas and we look forward to seeing you fully refreshed in 2020!

In English and PSHE, we will be revisiting our whole school ‘Diversity’ project from 2019.  The children will begin by thinking about their own homes and where they come from.  We will then explore further the themes of ‘Home, Belonging, Acceptance and Hope’ through a number of books including ‘Wisp, A story of Hope’ by Zana Fraillon, ‘Home’ by Carson Ellis and ‘Dreams of Freedom’ in association with Amnesty International. This work will continue into Art lessons where the children will be working in mixed media with a focus on collage and drawing to combine images and words, including the children’s poetry.

In History, we will be learning all about the Ancient Greeks and in RE, the children will be learning how people show their beliefs in action. Linking to our work in Science, we look forward to taking the Year 4 children to Techniquest on Thursday, January 30th where there will be lots of practical experiments to solve, a ‘Light and Sound’ show and a ‘Coding Challenge’ workshop (letters will be sent home during the first week back).

In Maths, we will be continuing with Multiplication and Division and then learning about Area and Fractions.  Please encourage your child to keep practising their times tables, using ‘Times Table Rockstars’ and Year 4’s Maths Class Page for further games and activities.

On Monday mornings, we will wake the whole school up with our Samba lessons and there will be a mini concert in school on Monday 30th March.  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 Wednesday afternoons, the children will have Dance lessons with Chloe Vickers and they will be swimming on Thursday mornings.

Associate Teachers:

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