Year 4

Autumn 1 finishes with a flurry of activity!

Year 4 spent the last weeks of Autumn term working hard, building their skills and applying them to a variety of tasks.  They have amazed their teachers by their stamina and ability to enjoy whatever piece of work in any subject they are asked to do.  Newspaper articles and poems about the Messiah were written.  Diary entries about Iron Man and Christmas Jumper day were enjoyed by all.  Mental and Written Calculations were conquered.  The Anglo-Saxons were discovered and their actions analysed by our historians and geographers in class.  The children even made time to beautifully perform for the school Carol Concert too.  

So a huge well done to all!  Enjoy your Christmas break - we wish you and your families happy and safe times.  Mr O'Connell and Mrs Young look forward to seeing you in January 2022, ready to get to work again.  :) 

 

What a fantastic Autumn 1 for Year 4!

It is incredible to think that the children have been in school for only seven weeks as they have settled so well.  Strengthening their skills in all subjects, they have become young writers, mathematicians, scientists and more.  From performing poetry, acting out stories from the Old Testament to writing reflections about their relationship with God - the children have been putting great effort into all they do.  They have been creating shapes and learning how to work as a team in tag rugby.  The year also had a fabulous school trip to LEGOLAND to practise their coding skills and then spend time on some amazing rides.

Mr O'Connell and I could not be more pleased with the positive approach to learning the children have had and ask that the children keep up the great effort when they return for Autumn 2.  

Welcome to Year 4!

We have just completed our first full week of the new school year, and we couldn’t be more pleased with the positive attitude, enthusiasm and effort of the children!  It’s been a fab start!

In year 4 there are lots of interesting topics for children to learn about.

In RE, the classes have begun their topic of ‘People’ with a focus on family – ours and Jesus’ family. 

We have begun to read Iron Man in English and even learned and performed the poem by Brenda Williams.  A close look at language to make a poem and story come alive is our main objective.

While in maths, the children have been learning about number – its value, different ways to express it and how we use it in our daily lives.

Our science topic of electricity has all the children excited as we examine what makes a lightbulb work.  They are eager to put their knowledge into practice and create working circuits of their own.

The classes have started back with two PE lessons a week; this term beginning with shape for indoor PE and learning about tag rugby for outdoor PE.  We have PE on Mondays and Wednesdays!

Music took place as well and the children were enthusiastic to start on their journey for learning more and improving their skills with the recorder.

In DT, we will begin with a focus on building a robot of their very own – tying together the Iron Man text and our science topic too.  We can’t wait to see what creations they come up with!

Finally, Mr O’ Connell and Mrs Young would like to congratulate the children for their super start to the new year.  We would ask them to remember to read each day, listen well and always try their very best.  If they continue to do these things, it should be a brilliant year!
