Welcome to Year 4
This year we have Mrs Read teaching Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. Mrs West will be teaching Thursday and Friday.
The teaching assistants working in Year 4 are Mrs Chillingworth, Miss Disley and Mrs Collins.
As always feel free to pop in before or after school if you need to chat to any of us about anything.
We are focussing on our Year 3/4 spellings this term. The 'Spelling Frame' website is a really useful and fun way of practising our key words.
Blue Abyss Spring 2
Grab your wetsuit! We’re going on a deep sea adventure.
We will gain an insight into the ocean world. We’ll sketch different creatures and write poems inspired by our favourite sea creatures that will help us to develop a rich vocabulary. Through the use of maps, globes and atlases, we’ll identify the world’s oceans and seas. We’ll also find different ways of grouping living things. Diving back into the 1800s, we’ll learn all about the HMS Challenger. We’ll research Jacques Cousteau and write biographies about his exciting explorations. As a challenge, we’ll create model submarines using recycled materials and program an onscreen submarine. Antony Gormley’s Another Place sculpture will be studied and reviews written. After locating the Great Barrier Reef on a map, we’ll learn about the risks it faces in the modern world and look at other environmental issues affecting our seas and oceans.
This week (beginning 12th Feb) we are looking at measuring angles using protractors.
The link below is to a really useful website on which you can explore how to measure angles using the protractor, directing it with the computer mouse. Have fun :)
We started our new topic with our memorable experience this week. The dental hygienist from Godfrey's dental practise came in to talk about teeth and how we need to look after them.
Everybody had great fun using the disclosure tablets.
Some of the Year 4 children have set up a playtime group where they are encouraging the younger children to play fun games with them. These photographs capture the fun perfectly.
