Welcome to Year 4
Welcome to Year 4 from Miss Nash and Mrs Wilson!
In Year 4 the children have the opportunity to build on their successes from their time in Year 3. They are now well into the swing of things in Key Stage 2 and looking forward to the year ahead. In Year 4 we always try our best, have a go and are not afraid to make mistakes.
We will be exploring lots of exciting, engaging and interesting cross-curricular topics this year such as 'Ancient Egypt', 'Burps Bottoms and Bile' and 'Chocolate'. Some of these topics will have a Creative Homework project linked them, giving us the opportunity to show our interests, strengths and talents.
Regular reading at home and school will be encouraged along with an emphasis on learning times tables and the spelling of key words - as these skills will all help greatly with the English and Maths topics in Year 4.
Miss Nash, Mrs Wilson and the children promise to work hard so that we are able to be the best we can be!
Keep checking out our page to see what we get up to!
Year One Visit to St Peter’s Church
Year One had a busy morning exploring inside St Peter's Church. Rev Rattenbury showed us around and we even had a baptism.
Mini beast hunt
The children in year 1 spent a busy afternoon searching the school grounds for mini beasts. We created different habitats for them to live in.
Tennis at Caunton
Years 1 and 2 had a lovely time at Caunton learning a range of tennis skills. Watch out for one of us at Wimbledon in the future!
The Queen’s Birthday
We read 'The Queen's Knickers' and designed our own knickers for the Queen. We wrote her a letter to say which special event she could wear them to attend! We also made some collage Union Jacks and Royal Crowns.
Year 4 orally retelling the story of ‘No Dinner’ to Year 1
Year 4 have been working on their ability to orally retell a story using appropriate intonation, volume and movement so that meaning is clear and engaging. In order to help with this, the children turn our class book of 'No Dinner', by Jessica Souhami, into a story map and then used...
Bubbles and balloons
We loved investigating how bubbles and balloons move in the air.
Year 1 Making bridges.
Year 1 had a great time in the art studio designing and making bridges to help the Billy Goats Gruff.
year 1 loved taking part in the dance workshop today. They did lots of swirling, zooming and floating linked to our weather topic and the wind.
Patching Art Centre
Year 1 had a lovely time at Patchings Art Centre. We created African art and craft using the techniques of weaving and printing. Look out for our wonderful display in the classroom.
The Year 1 children were sporting stars! They enjoyed taking part in a range of sports at The Joseph Whitaker Secondary School.
