Year 4 enjoyed their Santa Fun Run on Friday 10th December 2021. We are very proud of the children for their efforts when running and raising money for Helen and Douglas House. Well done to all involved. A further thank you to all of those who supported us with this worthwhile cause.

Year 4 - Roman Day

5th November 2021

Today, Year 4 had The Past Presents come into school to deliver some workshops with the children. The children have experienced life as a Roman legionnaire, both in battle and during their downtime. The children loved taking part in various mock battles between the Romans and the Celts. We had lots of fun and the children all looked amazing in their costumes, many thanks to all parents and carers for your support with the costumes.

Year 4 children shared their science learning about teeth with the Nursery and Reception children, who are beginning to learn about the importance of good oral health. The Year 4 children sat down with a group of Nursery and/or Reception children and shared their Google Slides presentation about teeth with them. Next half term, we hope that Nursery and Reception will share some of their work with Year 4. Well done to all children!

Science Learning

17th September 2021

In Year 4 this week we have been looking at place value in our Mathematics lessons. We have looked at increasing and decreasing numbers by 1, 10, 100 and 1 000 over the course of the week. On Friday, we took our learning outdoors, and using chalk, we solved problems relating to place value in a variety of ways including different representations.

Within our Music lessons, the children have been working hard to follow music and to create their own using the glockenspiels and body percussion. The children have worked hard to ensure they are listening to one another carefully, so that when the music is put together, it is in time and goes well together. Well done Year 4; brilliant effort.'

Current Topic

Our topic this half term continues to be The Romans. We have our Roman Day on Friday 5th November, whereby the children will dress up as Romans and take part in different Roman Workshops by The Past Presents. Our English work this half term is centred around the myth of Romulus and Remus. As part of our work, we will read the text applying various reading skills in order to understand it clearly. We will then explore various forms of persuasive writing such as advertisements, speeches, debates and letters and identify the different features before writing our own examples.

Within our history work, the children will learn about Roman Houses, traditional Roman food and drink and the lives of Roman children. We will also consider Roman Society and how the hierarchy was structured. The children will find out about significant gods and goddesses in their research project which they will then present to others. Within our artwork this term, we will explore the link between Rome and the theatre and its significance. We will look at comedy and tragedy masks, associated with the theatre in Rome, and recreate these in our own style.

Later on in the term, in our Design Technology (D.T.) lessons, the children will explore Roman money pouches and work towards creating their own Roman money pouch. Similarly, our topic of The Romans will link to work across various subjects across the curriculum such as in reading, writing and mathematics.
