Year 4

Welcome to the Year Four Blog

Keep an eye on this blog to find out what we have been learning about this half term.
Below you will also find the timetable and homework for this week.

Year 4 Class Blog

Week beginning 26.9.22

Year 4 (Year 4) on: Year 4 Class Blog

Good morning year 4!

This week is slightly different as we have a few special events happening.

Miss FJ (who some of you may remember working with last year) is zooming into school to meet with years 3 and 4 regarding being an upstander and not a bystander. This will use up our literacy time on Monday.

Similarly, on Wednesday we welcome our F2 pupils into our school family by giving them their candle that represents Jesus' light. This means our Topic session will be on Tuesday along with our Forest School session.

If you'd like to see how the timetable looks this week, you can find it here:

Thank you to those pupils playing Rockstars over the weekend to keep their knowledge up!

Week beginning 19.9.22

Good morning.

Following the bank holiday to allow for the state funeral of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, we have obviously missed some lesson from our usual timetable. Not to worry, we'll catch up throughout the half term.

This week we are working on our healthy food knowledge in preparation for designing our menus. We look deeper into the sciences of our teeth and what drinks do to them. We finish off our positive mind instructions (great job on week 1 of your writing by the way!) In Numeracy we deepen our understanding of place value and apply our knowledge in various situations. We'll also continue to work on our scanning and retrieval skills in comprehension.

Let's have a great, if shortened week,

Welcome to Year Four

Year 4 (Year 4) on: Year 4 Class Blog

Good morning everyone, and welcome to Year Four!

We've already had our 2 days working together and got to know some expectations for our year together.

There's a few changes to how we'll be working this year, but nothing overly different. 

We'll be learning literacy in a slightly different way this year, there will be less quantity but a higher quality in your work.

Numeracy will have us using our exercise books slightly differently than in previous years, but I'll tell you more about that in our first lesson.

Important days for you to know are: Tuesday (Forest School) and Thursday (PE and violins). Remember to come in the correct uniform on your active days. Any other day, you must wear the correct school uniform.

Our first half term topic is 'Field to Fork'. This Topic focusses on understanding where our food comes from and how to make sure we eat a balanced diet to keep ourselves healthy. We'll even be learning how to prepare and cook foods!

You can how your days run by downloading the timetable here:

I look forward to a great start with you all this week!

Awkward Algorithms

Year 4 (Year 4) on: Year 4 Class Blog

Y4 did an 'unplugged' ICT lesson this week. We created an obstacle course to get through using simple commands to direct our partner's through the maze. The algorithms were scripted prior to our attempts, so often required teams to debug their algorithms before attempting again.

Below are the timetable and homework for this week.
