Your Year 4 teachers this year are Miss Randall and Mr Inott.
PE will be on a Wednesday and a Thursday throughout the year. Indoor PE will be on a Wednesday and outdoor PE will be on a Thursday. Please ensure your child has a PE kit in school on both of these days.
Our topics this year are:
From Pole to Pole,
Passport through Europe
Our theme for the first half of the Autumn term is 'From Pole to Pole'. The children are really looking forward to learning all about The Arctic and Antarctic.
During our 'Pole to Pole' topic, Year 4 have learnt about The North Pole, South Pole and countries within The Arctic Circle. They used a balloon to create their own world map, showing continents, oceans and countries within the Arctic Circle. They really enjoyed creating their own globe.
Living Things and Their Habitats
In Science, the children are currently learning about Living things and their habitats. They have already learnt that living things can be grouped in a variety of ways. They have explored and used classification keys to help group, identify and name a variety of living things and have recognised that environments can change and that this can sometimes pose dangers to living things.
The children have identified living things such as plants and trees and also habitats within the school grounds. We went outside and asked and answered questions about how living things such as birds have created nests in the trees. Year 4 made observational drawings of the trees and talked about how this habitat might change over time. Throughout the year, we will continue to make observational drawings of the trees and identify how these change according to the seasons.
European Day of Languages
Year 4 have really enjoyed learning about Iceland for European Day of Languages. They had great fun making their own flag and creating a fact file about Iceland. Particularly enjoying learning about Iceland's volcanoes. The children also learnt how to say hello and goodbye.
