Term 4 - 27th February 2020
Welcome back to Term 4! This term we will have a Geography focus: ‘Modern Day Greece’. This is the first time that we have taught this topic so I think the adults are more excited than the children! Our new Science topic is ‘States Of Matter’.
Please continue to encourage your children to play ‘Times Tables Rockstars’ at home; we will be providing you with information at the next parents' evening about the Year 4 Multiplication Check.
Exciting news: Camp letters will shortly be coming home! Please keep a lookout for these!
ROLE MODELS: Matthew, Emily G, Ruby H, Izzy W, Cooper H, Aiden, Sophia H, Savannah, Loki, Izzy
Term 3 - 16th January 2020
What a first week back the Year 4 children have had! It sounds like the children had wonderful Christmases! We kicked off this term with our ‘Romans’ topic! The children are eager to learn more about this and we have had such interesting discussions! Our new science topic is ‘Forces’ and the children began by carrying out an investigation looking at how different materials effect the way in which objects move. We have been sprucing up our book areas and the children are playing a big part in how we design these; they are very excited about them. Homework has started again this week. All children are expected to complete their 20 sessions on Times Tables Rockstars. We will be offering sessions at break/lunch for children to come in and complete this homework if they are struggling to access a digital device. Alternatively, paper copies can be collected from any one of the Year 4 teachers.

Term 2 - 28th November 2019
Year 4 were amazing during the ‘Raise the Roof’ singing festival. Thank you to all who helped and encouraged the children to make something recyclable. Mrs Clough, from the music service, was amazed! Singing is now underway for our Christmas concert. The children have started planning their adventure stories and are keen to begin writing. Our focus for the next few weeks in Maths is multiplication so please do encourage your child/children to play Times Tables Rockstars as much as possible as this will help them with the recall of the facts.

Term 2 - 14th November 2019
Thank you to everyone who supported our soup kitchen last term. We raised approximately £80 for Weston Foodbank - an incredible amount! The children have been telling us all about their ideas for their recycled items for our ‘Raise the Roof’ festival; we can't wait to see what they have come up with! The children have had great fun using the green screen this week, creating videos about the Pyramids of Giza. Watch this space as you will be invited in shortly to watch their tremendous efforts! Please come and take a look at our beautiful clay poppies which are currently displayed in the main foyer.

Term 1 - 22nd October 2019
Year 4 have been continuing their Egyptian themed writing. They have published their best work and are very proud of this. They have been preparing vegetables and baking bread for our annual soup kitchen to raise funds for the Weston Foodbank. You can buy a cup of this delicious soup with a roll of bread today, after school. We have also had a visit from Mrs Clough from the Music Service to teach us the songs for our ‘Raise the Roof’ music celebration. We are now pyramid experts. Do ask us questions! A big well done to those children for their efforts on ‘Times Tables Rockstars!’ Thank you for your support during this busy, first term.

Term 1 - 10th October 2019
Year 4 are well underway with learning the songs for Raise for Roof. Other local schools will be visiting us for a music celebration. The theme this year is recycling which has led to many class discussions about this hot topic. We have also been researching Ancient Egyptian Gods and Goddesses and are looking forward to writing our Egyptian adventure stories.
Term 1 - 26th October 2019
The children are well and truly settled and have now found their feet! We have been singing our hearts out to Mama Mia (this is our music focus) and soon the children will start learning the songs for our Raise the Roof festival in November. We are continuing with our Egyptian topic which the children are still so enthused about. Our first few Role Model awards have been given out; we are extra proud of these children.
Term 1 - 12th September
Year 4 have had a wonderful start! They have been given a little taster on Ancient Egypt and are keen to start the topic. Mummification has already been an interesting discussion point! Children have already started being inquisitive and have been sharing information they have been finding out at home. They have settled in well; we are feeling extremely proud of them already!
