Welcome to Year 4

Hi and welcome to year 4. Our team include Mrs Caldicott (Wednesday - Friday), Mrs Priest (Monday - Tuesday), and Mr Donhou (Full-time). We have really enjoyed our first half term with your children...Roll on Christmas!

 

English-

 

Leading up to Christmas we have been delving into imaginary worlds, experiencing Susan, Edmund, Peter and Lucy’s journey through Narnia in our focus text ‘The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe.’ We have been reading, researching and writing stories.

 

The children have been inspired by creating their own imaginary worlds as well as watching clips from the BBC version. They will also get the chance to watch the newer film leading up to Christmas.

Maths-

 

With the new topic Multiplication and Division, Year 4 have been working hard to practice their times table calculations. We have been learning new strategies and using a variety of resources to aid our learning such as flip sticks, number cards, multilink cubes and multiplication squares. Lessons have involved investigating factor pairs and number size, multiplication and division facts, and multiplying and dividing by 10, 100 and 1000. We will be looking further into using written methods for both Multiplication and Division as well as problem solving.

 

The children have been leading their own learning, challenging themselves with Mild, Hot, Chilli and Carolina Reaper challenges.

 

We strongly encourage children to continue to practice their times tables up to 12 x 12 as this is a Year 4 expectation.

Science-

 

In Science we have been exploring the topic Sound. Using musical equipment, pitching forks and model ears the children have had hands on experience of investigating how sound is made, questioning how we hear sounds and how sound travels through a solid, liquid and a gas. We have explored the whole school site listening to different sounds, watching videos of the famous composer Tchaikovsky and discussing different ways to describe sounds. 

Seeing what it would be like to rely on our hearing, having a bit of competitive fun!

4D enjoyed investigating how sound travels through solids, liquids and gases. They recorded what happened, what they could hear and what they saw on post it notes and then discussed their findings at the end of the lesson.
