Year 4

Welcome to Year 4

Some Reminders

Please ensure that ALL your children’s clothing is named, including trousers, skirts and shirts. When the children get changed for PE it is hard for them to find the right white shirt if it is not named.

Please also ensure that the children have a named water bottle in school every day.


Week Ending 20th October

Hello again from Year 4.

In Literacy we have enjoyed writing out big write about the Dream Giver, creating a descriptive dream world using our vocabulary.

We have started learning about sound in science, conducting investigations and taking part in a sound walk.

In Numeracy we have been developing our problem solving skills, continuing to gain confidence with adding and subtracting.

We had a great time at our Halloween disco.

Everyone made a great spooky effort with their costumes.

Week Ending 22nd September

We were creative in Art and DT by designing, planning and created a multi-coloured Dream Jar that the BFG would be proud of.

In Literacy, we have used Wow words and adjectives to write descriptive phrases to bring characters and settings to life.

Then we focused our writing on trying to persuade the Queen to capture the evil giants.

In Numeracy, we have continued looking at Place Value and Number.

We have learnt how to order, compare and round numbers.

We have continued to develop our times tables ready for their weekly test.

This week, we ensured all children had reading books set at their level so that they are ready for their weekly AR quiz.

Furthermore, the library is open every day from 8am to help eager readers.


Week Ending 8th September

Hello from Year 4 and a warm welcome to everyone.

The children have settled in well into their new classes and they are very excited about their learning this term — I have a Dream.

We have started this term by asking the children about their dreams and hopes for the future and introduced our Literacy text—The BFG.

This Dahl classic involves imaginative and excellent descriptive language which will provide the children with good writing opportunities.

Just a gentle reminder to ask all parents to let their children line up before they are collected as it can be quite chaotic at the end of the day.
