Year 4 Teaching Staff 2023/2024
Year 4 PE will be on Monday afternoons
Y4 had a wonderful Tudor experience Wednesday afternoon with some of the "Company Of Merrie Folke". The children were able to quiz Henry VIII and Queen Catherine about life in Tudor times and discover some new fun facts. They were able to handle lots of artefacts, tried on Tudor clothes, armor, chainmail, held swords, a long bow, handled furs and lucky Tudor charms. They could nibble cheese tarts (so smelly) and root (liquorice), though only the brave tried Tudor cold remedies! They won’t mind going to the modern-day dentist or doctor now and won't forget Tudor remedies of mouse droppings to rot a tooth out or snail slime for healing wounds in a hurry! They even learnt a Tudor dance. Hopefully you've heard all about the fun they had, here are some photos from their experience.
In Art this week the children have been able to experiment with different grades of pencil achieving variations in tone, carefully mixing water colours and making their own Tudor portrait.
Shared learning Christmas Day with Year 2 and Year 4.
In Year 4 we have been learning a range of school subjects and playing games/quizzes to help us remember them. We've used sentence builders and practiced our French pronunciation saying which school subjects we like and dislike!
Year 4 Kicked of our Christmas productions with their version of It's Chriiistmas. Both performances were outstanding. Well done to the children and staff of Year 4!
Kindness week in Year 4. 4CS read Kindness is my Superpower and each child wrote a random act of kindness on a post-it note and tried to do it over the week. 4MB made an iMovie all about what kindness means to them and 4LT shared our Shout out Book where children have been spotted for acts of kindness, then made posters and poems.
Year 4 Have had a great start to the day celebrating TT Rock Stars
In Y4 we are looking at place value in a variety of ways and what each digit is worth.
In Y4 our Science topic is sound. We have been investigating how sound travels. Last week we tried lots of mini investigations and this week will plan one in more detail.
In year 4 we have been doing maths outside today. We have been practicing round numbers to the nearest 10 and 100 and learning the high 5 rule to help us.
