Welcome to the Year 4 page!
Welcome to the Year 4 Page! We will be sharing our learning throughout the year.
Year Group Team
Year 4 have PE on Tuesday afternoon and Wednesday morning.
They must come to school with their PE kits on these days which must be a plain white t-shirt, a plain navy-blue tracksuit and plain white or black trainers /plimsolls.
Children must not wear earrings and must have long hair tied back. If your child is unable to independently take their earrings off or tie their hair back, please make sure this is organised before they come to school.
We are unable to use the water fountains at the moment, so please ensure your child brings in a labelled bottle of water every day.
Homework / Home Reading
Homework is set every Friday on Google Classroom and should be returned by Thursday the following week. Reading books are sent out on Thursday to be returned on Tuesday. Books should be signed every week. Please remember to log on to ‘Times Tables Rock Stars’ regularly.
What are Year 4 learning?
We have been reading the poem Magic Box by Kit Wright. The children asked to listen and read the poem and draw images from the poem that they could see when they closed their eyes.
This week we have been calculating word and reasoning problems. We consolidated our learning by creating a poster of the steps required to answer these questions.
We have been learning about the water cycle and the different stages involved. The children were then asked in groups of four to make a model of the water cycle.
In computing, we have been using a text-based programming language for the first time and learning that you have to be very accurate! This week we tried to write algorithms for drawing letters.
This week we have been learning about the 'O' Antiphons and created some of our own ones.
We began a new topic about the Roman Empire and learnt about the Roman timeline. We also looked at the story of Romulus and Remus, and how Rome was founded.
