Mrs Dark, Mrs Verdegaal and Mrs Towers would like to welcome you to the Year 4 webpage. We hope to share with you curriculum coverage and ideas, as well as a peek into Year 4 life and activities!

The Year 4 classrooms are found in the oldest part of school, and having been recently renovated they are a fantastic learning environment for the children to thrive in.

The children are supported in their learning by Mrs Evans, Mrs Burchnall, Mrs Haselgrove, Mrs Arnold, Mrs Bodimead, Mrs Brown, Mrs Griggs, Miss Gilbert and Miss Van der Werf.

This term 4CD will swim on Tuesday mornings and have outdoor PE on a Wednesday.  4DT have outdoor PE on Tuesday and indoor PE on Wednesday.

Our our main topics this term are continuing with the Romans and looking at habitats in Science.  We are all looking forward to having a Roman day on Monday 26th June.

We will be continuing to use the Singapore Maths scheme 'Maths No Problem' and will be covering measurement, area, geometry including line symmetry and translation.  Linked to the Romans, we will also look at Roman numerals.

In Literacy, we will start the term writing poetry relating to our Habitats topic and then move on to narrative writing linked to the film 'Bug's Life'.  After that, we will be using our non-fiction writing skills relating to our Romans topic.

In Geography, we will build on our orienteering lessons in PE from earlier in the term and look at OS maps along with signs and symbols.

In RE our curriculum continues to look at signs and symbols across a range of religions and in SEAL and PSHE our topic will be changes, helping us to prepare for moving on to Year 5.

Homework is given out on a Friday and is due back by the next Wednesday.  In addition, it is expected that our children will read for at least 20 minutes every night and continue to work on their fluency of multiplication and division facts up to 12 x 12.

26th June 2017 - Roman Day

Today, Maximus and the XI legion invaded year 4 to bring news of the rebellion of Boudicca.  The children were quickliy recruited to join the Roman ranks, making a variety of objects and listening for news of the impending invasion.

Luckily, Boudicca was stopped in her tracks and a celebratory feast, with drama and dancing, was enjoyed by all in the afternoon.

5th June 2017 - Visit to Spalding Grammar and High School

Today year 4 went to Secondary school.  The girls went by bus to Spalding High school to enjoy a morning of Food technology and Art and the boys walked to the Grammar to take part in Science and Computing lessons.

The girls made museli bars and then were able to participate in some free flow art to music.  It was very messy, with painting on tables, chairs and some on each other but everyone enjoyed themselves.

The boys took part in a colourful chemistry lesson with a variety of chemicals and then moved on to some computing programming.  They all loved dressing in scientific lab coats and goggles to become chemists for the morning.

A great morning was had by all!
