Year 4

 
Welcome to the Year 4 page!

Welcome to the Year 4 Page! We will be sharing our learning throughout the year.

Year Group Team

Miss Nugent, Mrs Nicola, Mrs Edgar and  Mrs Kenny.

PE

In PE we have been working in teams to help one other achieve an objective. We worked together using our negotiation skills by offering advice and listening to one another. One example is when we worked in teams trying to figure out how to change places without stepping off a bench! We thought of ways we could improve next time and some children thought planning in advance would help.

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?

English

In English we have enjoyed listening to and reading a variety of Greek Myths.  We have researched and found out the features which are needed for this genre of writing and will be using this information to support us in having a go at writing our very own myths!

 

Maths

For maths we have been using Base Ten equipment to support our understanding of place value. We have been learning about numbers up to 10000 and how they are represented in different ways. We always try to explain our reasoning by speaking in full sentences which include maths vocabulary.  We are getting faster in recalling our times tables. We make links with the times tables we are learning and practising by observing patterns and using manipulatives to embed our understanding.

 

Science

In our science lesson we have been introducing and learning new vocabulary needed for our topic ‘Living Things and Their Habitats’. We have been using dictionaries and books to research the meanings of our key vocabulary and writing our own definitions. We will begin to classify animals based off of their characteristics.

 

Computing 

In computing, we took part in Europe Code Week and used broadcast & receive message blocks in Scratch to retell the story of Moses & the burning bush.‚Äč

 

R.E

For RE we have begun to explore the sources of Revelation from the Bible. We have discussed God’s creations and what we can learn about God from them. We have also explored how Catholics show their belief in God through tradition.

Topic

Our focus this term in topic is Ancient Greece. We have been using information texts to research and come up with questions about Ancient Greece to explore this term. We are excited to find out about Ancient Greek food, entertainment and clothes!
