Year 4's first residential trip was a huge success, despite appalling weather! The children did themselves proud, they took on every challenge with enthusiasm and their behaviour was a credit to them and the school. Staff at the centre commented that they were one of the best groups they had ever had. Some of the most popular activities included laser zone, crate stack, low ropes and of course, the quad bikes. All of this activity required energy and the children made the most of the delicious food on offer. Lots of them tried foods they hadn't tried before and some ate their own body weight in toast! All in all, a very good time was had by all. Well done Year 4.
Our final term of the year promises to be full of exciting events. We will be taking part in a cricket festival during our first week back. Later on, we are going to Kingswood in Staffordshire on the very first Year 4 residential trip.
Our theme for the summer term will be all about Ancient Egypt. Take a look at the curriculum map to find out more about what we will be doing this term.
We are half way through the year already! Year 4 have been working hard to master their times tables. We are currently concentrating on the 8 times table. The children are enjoying our theme this term and have produced some innovative pieces of homework which are on display in the classroom. This half term we are moving forward in time to the iron age.
Welcome back, I hope everyone has had a great Christmas holiday. This term our theme will be 'Would you rather be a caveman or a Celt?'. We will be studying British history from the stone age to the iron age, creating some 'cave art' and reading 'The Boy with the Bronze Axe' by Kathleen Fiddler. To see more about what we will be learning this term, please look at the curriculum map below.
Welcome back to the second half of the autumn term. We will be starting with a walk around the local area to look at human and physical geography and what facilities are available. Hopefully the weather will be kind tomorrow but please make sure children have suitable footwear and a coat.
Our science topic this half term is electricity and to complement this, our Design Technology challenge will be to build model houses with working lights and door bells. The children will have to design the correct type of switch to make these work as they should. Watch this space for photos of the finished article!
Another busy week over, the children have been working hard. We have finished reading 'Esio Trot' by Roald Dahl and the children have reviewed the book and written a summary of the story. We are studying the work of Gaudi in art and Year 4 children have created their own sun medallions in his style.
For those of you who couldn't make it to the welcome meeting, please have a look at the welcome letter which contains some useful information.
Welcome to Year 4!
Having completed the first week in Year 4, the children have settled well and are getting used to new routines. We are looking forward to studying the author Roald Dahl, starting with an exciting day of activities to celebrate Roald Dahl day on Tuesday 13th September.
