Welcome to Year 4!
The Year 4 team are very pleased to be able to help and support you on your learning journey this year.
The team is Miss Short, Mrs Wilson, Miss McHugh and Miss Bloyce. We hope that you have a settled and enjoyable start to the year.
Our very busy and exciting curriculum this term covers, Geography, Science, French, Music, PSHE, Art, Computing, Design and Technology, RE and PE.. not forgetting English and Maths!
Topics covered will include mixing and comparing colours, learning about our local area, the digestive system, recorders and Buddhism.
For more information on curriculum, PE requirements and equipment, please refer to the class letter.
In Year 4 there is a big focus on knowledge and recall of multiplication tables and the children will undertake the national multiplication check in the Summer term. There will be lots of opportunity for practice at school and any practice at home will also be very beneficial.
Please use the Boom Reader app to log home reading that you complete so that we keep improving our fluency, expression and comprehension skills.
I am able to discuss any concerns you have at the end of the day and will respond to any emails as soon as possible. If you have concerns, please speak to me or email email@example.com .
In DT we thought about and made healthy snacks. We made hummus and vegetable sticks and fruit skewers. We developed our peeling, cutting and mashing skills and then we enjoyed eating the snacks!
Art - Weaving
We have been learning to weave! Linked to our 'Invasion' topic, this term our art project was to create a piece of weaving. I'm sure you will agree, these look fab!
We have been developing our clay skills. In our 'Animal' art unit, we began by sketching animals, then sculpted a horse. These horses were based on Bankura style horses. We had a lot of fun doing this!
In Autumn 1 half term we have used the book 'Arthur and the Golden Rope' to inspire some narrative writing. We created a storyboard narrative and wrote and published narratives.
Year 4 have the opportunity to take part in STEM club this year. This is an after school club in which the children complete challenges and investigations and work towards a CREST science certificate. The first group begins in September and there will be a further group in January.
