Year 4 Topic

Autumn 2015

Welcome to year 4!

This term we will be immersing ourselves in the Rugby World Cup which will help us to understand our geography related to the UK, Europe and the World. Using these real life events, and following it as the tournament progresses, will allow us to make reports on what is happening, develop our descriptive writing skills and use live websites to keep track of events to aid with our information booklets.

Alongside this, we are also discovering the exiting world of out of space. This will involve understanding our solar system as well as learning about why we have seasons, day and night and sun rise and sun set.

After half term, we are delving into the past to uncover the ancient world of the Romans. We will be investigating how they lived, by looking at artefacts and considering what this tells us about them.

We will be transforming into geologists and sifting through rocks and soils to understand how they are made and identifying the different types of rocks that we find.

PE days:

Mrs Jones: Monday and Thursday

Miss Froggatt: Wednesday and Thursday

Looking forward to the term ahead!

Busy Last Week Ahead!

As we enter our last week before the summer holidays, we have lots going on including our lovely head, Mrs Swann, saying goodbye to us!  Here are some of the events:

  • Monday sees children meeting their new teachers and classmates in the afternoon.
  • Tuesday is our sponsored fun run in aid of Cancer Research where children are asked to come wearing in pink or blue clothes suitable for running.  Later that morning, Sports Awards will be presented.
  • Reading treats will be taking place for different year groups throughout the week
  • Year 6 continue to rehearse for their leavers' assembly which will be presented to parents and carers at 10am on Friday, 21st July in the hall (there will be a DVD of the performance to order).  Some of our year sixes will also be representing the school at the regional atheletics final on Thursday.
  • We are having a whole school picnic on Thursday at lunchtime to celebrate our time with Mrs Swann - don't forget packed lunches!
  • There is a special lunch on Friday, chosen by the year sixes, on their last day of primary school.

There's lots more going on besides so do keep an eye on Dojo for messages from individual teachers and for information on whole school activities.



Children's Choice Issue 7 - Hot off the press

The latest issue of our online newspaper by children, for children is available here.  It's well worth a read and contains reports on what we have been up to in school, interesting facts and interviews with staff and pupils.  Happy reading.
