Year 4

Spring term (part 2)

The revenge of term 2!

Welcome back from our short break.

 

hard to top a term filled with kung-fu cats, gymnastics, Excel, converting measurements and more.... But lets try!

 

This term we have a classic piece of literature to read... No, really REALLY classic! It's The adventures of Odysseus (thankfully not in the original ancient Greek!)

 

You've probably already guessed but we're also going to be learning about the Ancient Greeks in History. Alongside Rivers and other geographical features. 

 

In computing we're heading into the fascinating world of image manipulation, using Paint.net (a free photo editing program).

 

In PE we've done Gym and Dance. The sun is coming out, time to get competitive with netball!

 

For maths we need to consolidate the things we've already learnt thus far. Some new things are still being worked in. Money and time will be bigger issues this term. So it might be time to get a cheap watch...... >_>

Spring Term!

Welcome back!

 

A new year filled with new subjects!

 

In PE we move (elegantly) from dance to gymnastics

 

For Science we are starting to look at the exciting world of electricity

 

In English we are going to be studying a fantastic book about a magic cat!

 

Alongside geography, more computing, The Prince William Award and more. So watch this space for more

As is customary in year 4, we begin by pretending to murder our family. In a play of course, a fictional play. A fictional play about Ancient Rome with lots of educational value.... Honest! ....Maybe I should have started with that...

This year, year 4 will be taking part in the Prince William Award. Doing many diverse activities. While each has a great purpose I think it would be more fun to leave these images here and have the kids attempt to explain what they were doing.

Welcome to year 4!!!

 

Time to learn about the Ancient Romans, secure our addition and subtraction skills, discover what eats what and hopefully get a bit taller!

 

For parents who want to help their children out this year. Time tables are hugely important, if you get any time at home to make sure that your child is confident then you will give them an advantage this year!

 

Myself (Mr Etheridge) and our wonderful TA Karen bid you welcome and look forward to a great year!

 

 

There are many ways that you can help your child at home. Above is a link to what your child will be learning in English this term and how you can help them at home.
