~~~ Year 4 Class of 2019-2020 ~~~

Friday 24th January

After over a week of planning and researching, this week we have completed our non-chronological reports about Ancient Egypt. We have learnt lots of fascinating facts and have produced some work to be very proud of.

In Maths we have started to explore fractions - this is tricky stuff but we are taking it one step at a time!

We also had a visit from the Life Education Bus as part of our PSHE work and talked about healthy choices we can make for ourselves now and in the future.


Friday 10th January

 We have had a super first week back after a well deserved Christmas break. 

On Tuesday, we had our first school swimming lesson and these will continue throughout the Spring Term. Thursday was also very exciting because we got to take part in a Lego workshop, we took on the role of designers, engineers and programmers to build our own fairground ride using lego pieces and computer software.


Friday 20th December

 It has been an absolutely jam packed last week of term! Our Viking day was a huge success and a fantastic way to finish our history topic on Anglo Saxon and Viking Britain.

Thank you to all our families for their support over the Autumn Term and we wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!


Friday 13th September

This week we started our Music lessons with Mr Fitton and we are learning how to play a range of percussion instruments - noisy but fun!

In English we used our powers of persuasion to write a letter to Mr Shackleton convincing him that we deserved to be a crew member on his expedition. We also started our Geography topic, exploring the icy cold world of Antarctica through lots of different maps.

Well done to our Stars of the Week - Max and Lilu.


 Friday 6th September

Our first week has flown by and the children have started Year 4 with a super attitude and fantastic work ethic! We are all looking forward to a happy and successful year together.  

We have jumped straight into a busy week exploring place value in Maths and have begun our book for this half term 'Shackleton's Journey'.

I look forward to meeting lots of you at our Parents Information Meeting on Wednesday 18th September but if you have any questions in the meantime please do not hesitate to get in touch.

Congratulations to our first Stars of the Week - Ben G and Sam.
