Mr Jolly

Autumn 2

After a busy first half term we are glad to be back and we are working harder than ever! This half term we will be looking about how the earth can: shake, rattle and roll in geography. This involves earthquakes and volcanos some of this work is already on the website for you to have a look at. Electricity is the topic for science and we have some exciting experiments planned. The children are getting stuck into practical work as well as understanding the importance of being safe and thinking about wasting resources.  

Place value will continue to be a big focus for the start of this half term.  This knowledge underpins everything else we learn about in maths. important! Further to this, we are starting to develop our skills in multiplication and look at challenging problems within all of our topics in maths. Later on this half term, we will explore the four operations in depth.

In English, we are looking at the antics of the Hiccup trying, and failing, to train his dragon, Toothless. It is a book with lots of creative new vocabulary and will give the opportunity to write through different genres.

In R.E., we are continuing our unit of what is prayer and comparing different religion’s prayer habits. Following this we will be exploring Christmas and the importance of light to Christians. We will then compare this to the Jewish festival of Hanukkah.  

                                       

Of course there will be a Christmas production for KS2. Year 4 will have a part of course and this year it will is called “Baa Humbug”. It is a lovely production with lots of singing, dancing and acting!

                                      

Swimming has started off well; the children seem to be enjoying it.

Thank you for your continued support.

Year 4 team!

Autumn 1

Hello to all children, parents and carers and welcome to Year 4! We are all refreshed and raring to start new challenging Year 4 themes and topics. In class, we have already been hearing about the interesting things the children have been doing in the holidays. We hope you all enjoyed the time with your children.

The Year 4 team from 2018-19 has been ramined together comprimising Mrs Cavill, Mr Jolly, Mrs Palmer and Miss Helm.

Back to school, back to work! In English work on fables has started; the children should be able to tell you some morals of these animal based tales.

In Maths we continue to stretch and challenge the children encouraging them to be able to explain HOW they have found an answer not just to write it

 

Shortly, you will be receiving a letter about our exciting trip to Chester. This supports our learning about the Romans and the impact they had on our lives today. The children will experience life as a Roman in the Dewa museum and even do some marching with a real Roman soldier! More details to follow soon. In Science, we are studying a chemistry unit looking at the States of Matter.

                                               

In Religious Education, we will learn about the Faith of our school and that of others. We are starting by remind ourselves how to be “The good Soil". Your children should be able to tell you all about this. After this, we will move on to looking at the beginning of the Big Frieze at Creation and Fall.

                                               

Swimming will begin in the first week. Your children may be nervous about this but it is a vital skill to learn. Once they get there the water will be their new best friend. We would just like to urge you to ensure your children’s clothing has names inside, to avoid mix ups. Thank you for your support with this.

                                                

We are looking forward to working with you and your children any questions or enquiries please phone the office for an appointment.
