Welcome to Year Four! We have all had a lovely break and are ready to begin our Year Four adventure together. Watch this space to see the fun we are having along the way and updates on what we are learning.
Walk a mile 16 Janaury
In order to promote fitness and well-being, we are leaving the classroom and heading outdoors with the aim of walking a mile at least three times a week. Well, some of us are walking, some of us are jogging and others are doing a mixture of the two with a couple of twirls thrown in for good measure.
Jelly Bean Day 20th November
What a fabulous day of maths we’ve had! The children have used addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. They have measured, compared, estimated and used place value. They have created their own problems and then used their reasoning and fluency skills to solve them. I think I need to bring jelly beans to school more often.
Year 4 enjoyed an amazing day out at Cadbury World as part of their learning about Chocolate. It was an early start but all the children behaved well and came away having learnt lots of new facts about how chocolate is made and how the Cadbury brand became the success it is today.
Cross Country Competition
Key Stage Two marked the end of Term 1 with a cross country competition. It was really good to see all of the children taking part and trying their best. Pupils were awarded team points for their efforts and overall the winning house was Sycamore.
Roots to Food
On 11th October, Key Stage Two children took part in a fantastic workshop learning about the different food groups and making healthy eating options. Two teams also went head to head in a contest to make a tasty, healthy meal in just 15 minutes. Two members of each class made up the teams, one of which was lead by our very own Mr Norman. Other children were then given the task of tasters before an winner was chosen.
Practical Addition 8 October
Roald Dahl Day 2018 13 September
We really enjoyed dressing up and taking part in themed learning activities to celebrate what would have been Roald Dahl’s 102nd birthday. Can you spot you favourite character?
Parachutes for Peaches 13 September
Could you design a parachute to help land James’ Giant Peach safely? Well, Year Four gave it their best shot as part of our Roald Dahl Day celebrations. They displayed good teamwork skills and some perseverance too!
Projects 6 September
This term our topic is Rainforests. We have had some fantastic projects back already. Thanks to the grown-ups who helped their children make a head start on their learning.
