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 Haselgrove, Mrs Powell, Mrs Booty, Mrs Griggs and Mrs Gilbert.

Our our main topic over terms 1 and 2 is the Ancient Greeks. 

We will be continuing to use the Singapore Maths scheme 'Maths No Problem' and will be covering formal methods for multiplication and division.

In Literacy, we will be studying intructions and stories involving isssues and dilemmas.

In RE our curriculum will be studying Hinduism and Islam.  We will be making hanging softies in DT and studing electricity in Science.

Year 4 Olympics - 24.9.18

Today, Year 4 enjoyed a morning of sport by taking part in a mini olympic event.  They were welcomed by Zeus and paraded the olympic flame before comencing with 4 events - javelin, discus, long jump and sprint.  After taking part in heats there was a final where an winner was declared.  " I enjoyed myself, but was disappointed not to make it into any finals." said John

 

After the four athletic events, the children took part in the St John's marathon.  Luckily for them it was not a full 26 miles but two laps of our running track.  "I was absolutely exhausted" said Isobel at the finish line.

 

At the end of the morning the 5 winners were crowned with tradtional laural crowns.

 

 

Electricity

Our current Science topic is electricity and we have enjoyed creating circuits, making our own switches and testing materials to see if they are conductors or insulators.

 

      

Romans invade St John's!

Children in year 4 as Roman soldiers

The Romans came to Spalding on Friday and gave Year 4 a fantastic insight into life over 2000 years ago in Britain.  The children were able to create moasics, oil lamps, charms to ward off evil and become Roman soldiers in the morning.

 

Then, after lunch, they took part in either dancing, acting or being a part of the legion before settling down for a feast of bread, cheese, fruit and 'wine'.
