This week Year 4 have been making the most of the sunshine! Last Friday the children thoroughly enjoyed their Jubilee celebrations with their family and friends. The children have also welcomed back Mr. Cluett to the class and have been building some creative dens. The children have continued to look at the Eleventh hour and have begun to uncover the mystery of the story…

This week we started our new class text Wanderer (Peter Van Den Ende) and set off on our visual journey through the realms of the unimagined. A glimpse into the wondrously watery realm below the oceans skin has already stimulated some incredibly creative writing.
Our decimal learning in Maths is complete for now, our next step is to move on to working with money. Next week we will be estimating, rounding, adding and subtracting money – with the real world in mind!
We have started our new sports topics, learning skills in cricket and tennis. Yesterday we worked on agility moves to develop our speed in the quick moving game of tennis.
Our new topic for the term is Viking Warriors. We explored mottos and their meaning, then created our own motto for life. After that we re-enacted an old Norse battle cry to intimidate our enemies and motivate our warriors – it was both exhausting and deafening! We hope you enjoy the photos.

Wrapping up this term, Year 4 have had a brilliant week! On Monday, the children designed their own Faberge Eggs and decorated some Easter biscuits. Tuesday saw the children recreate the trial of Jesus with the children stepping into their roles with great maturity. Lastly, on Wednesday, the children were taken by our fabulous Year 5s in PE. From everybody in Year 4, Happy Easter!

Heading towards the Easter break, Year 4 have had another great week! We have been reflecting on our actions as part of our work on Lent and were even lucky enough to have Mrs. Wickens join us for a lesson on Holy Week! The children have produced some incredible Viking dance routines, showing real knowledge and skill. We also enjoyed our weekly chess session with some unique games.

This week in Year 4 we have used the warm weather to our advantage! We have been developing our Viking dances with particular focus on creating a hunting dance. The sunshine helped us to write some incredible setting descriptions related to Dragon Skin, our book that is set in Australia. Year 4 have continued to impress with their effort in skill in our chess sessions too.
Friday 18th March 2022
Another busy week in Year 4 done with all the children showing a great effort too! We have been carrying on our study and practice of Viking Dance with children using the Viking Thunderclap to inspire some performances. We have been finishing off our work on fractions using lots of different methods. In RE, we have been discussing what made Jesus a good teacher and have been demonstrating our learning of the Beatitudes.

Year Four have had lots of different adults in the class this week and have been a credit to the school and the Year Four team. Some of our highlights have been: Learning about Jesus' temptation in the desert in RE and acting out scenes in groups to show how we might be tempted, thinking about dictatorships and democracy in our LMTW lesson and reflecting on how different countries are run, creating our own Viking dances in PE and writing a shared character description in English. What a busy week and we have all enjoyed the challenges that our learning has brought us!

The highlight of the week has definitely been World Book Day. It was a PJ day filled with reminiscing over books we had read/ were read to us when we were younger, creating hideous monsters for some story writing, laughing and giggling, and making and writing books to share. Mr Neal visited for story time and we helped him solve the problem of the crayons! There was more laughing and giggling! We had fun reading, sharing stories and making new friends in Reception. The day came to a close with hot chocolate and biscuits – YUM

Year 4 have been on fire this week with their work! They have used drums, dance and drama skills to retell the story of Moses and Burning Bush in spectacular fashion. They have also used these drama skills to act out compelling medieval drama showcasing the Battle of Stamford Bridge. Year 4 have finished their work on Maria’s Island and have put together some biographies about Maria’s life.
Friday 11th February 2022
Another exciting week in Year 4 done with some wonderful learning on show! The children have started exploring the story of Moses and have been imagining what it was like to be in Egypt at that time. Year 4 have also began to look at the story of Harold Godwinson and argued a case for why their given candidate should be the next King of England which involved some very safe knighting! In PE the children have been developing their understanding of Yoga poses and breathing.
Friday 4th February 2022
Another week in the books for Year 4 with lots to report! The children have been working on their division in Maths and demonstrating a great attitude. In RE we created music to accompany the story of Jesus’ Transfiguration. The children have also been showing off their chess skills and have shown fantastic respect for one another in doing so.
Friday 28th January 2022
Another exciting week in Year 4 in which the children were in a race against time to find as much information as they could about Hindu gods. We have been continuing our work on 'Maria’s Island' with the children role-playing a particularly tricky scene with great maturity. Year 4 have also put into practice all of their football training in activities that saw them dribble, pass and shoot with excellent precision!
Friday 21st January 2022
Disaster in Year 4 this week as Mr Cluett went blind during an RE lesson! Fortunately, the children were there to help him remember every detail of Jesus’ baptism using their super understanding. Year 4 have also been creating their own times tables songs to help us remember them as creatively as possible. We’ve also started looking at Buddhism and its origins as well as practicing our football dribbling in PE.

Year 4 have kicked off the new year with a brilliant attitude! We have begun work with our new book ‘Maria’s Island’ and the children have been empathising with the characters in the story excellently. Inspired by the book, the children have also been creating collages of its front cover with some incredibly creative ideas. In PE we have started working on our football skills and are starting to develop our passing.
