Welcome to Year 4

 

 

Welcome to our year 4 web page where we will be regularly updating you on the learning journey we are taking this year.  Make sure you check out your child's class page at the bottom of this page.

 

Keep an eye out for our Sensational Starters, Magical Middles and Fantastic Finale throughout each terms learning journey.

 

Meet the team

 

This year our year four team is made up of Mrs Insley, Miss Ruck, Mr Briggs, Mrs Fisher and Mrs Watson.  We are always happy to hear from parents about their child's learning and we are available on the playground every morning if you need us.

 

 

We will also have regular visits from Mrs Lloyd and Miss Harrison.

Autumn 2

 

This term our learning journey will focus on the following:

-What is a natural disaster?

-What are the states of matter?

-What is Diwali?

-Celebrating Difference

-Document Creation

 

Our term will begin with a visit to Lea Green for many of our children or exploring autumn through art with Miss Ruck. Upon our return we will be diving into our learning journey with a sensational starter where we will explore volcanoes using virtual reality.  Our first lessons will focus on volcanoes with our magical middle moving us on to look at earthquakes.  The children will learn about all kinds of natural disasters and then take the role of experts in our science fair where we will present our knowledge to some of peers.  All in all an exciting term ahead.

This term our learning journey will focus on the following:

-What did the Romans do for us?

-What is sound?

-What is the purpose and value of a sacred place?

-Being me in my world

We will be diving into our learning journey with a sensational starter where we will investigate ancient Roman life and explore a range of artefacts.  Our topic will then look at Roman Britain and how the Romans affected our lives here.  For our magical middle we will be taking part in a Romans workshop with a history expert.  We are going to then top off all our amazing learning by making a documentary all about what the Romans did for us.
