Year 4J 2021 - 2022

Mr Jolly

Autumn 1

Hello to all children, parents and carers and welcome to Year 4! We are all refreshed and raring to start new year after the unfortunate but necessary elongated.  In class, we have already been hearing about the interesting things the children have been doing during the school holidays. We hope you all enjoyed the time with your children.

The Year 4 team from the last academic year remains the same this year: Mrs Cavill, Mr Jolly, Mrs Palmer, Miss Helm, and Miss Woods.

In English, work on fables has started; the children will be able to tell you some of the morals of these animal based tales. After this, we will move onto explanation texts linked to our Geography work and then instructions and explanations. In Maths, we will begin with work on place value before moving onto addition and subtraction later on in the half term. We will be trying to stretch and challenge the children, encouraging them to be able to explain HOW they have found an answer not just to write it

R.E. starts with the beginning of the big frieze, learning about the idea of creation and fall.

In Science, all the whole school are starting by studying their chemistry unit. Year 4’s is States of Matter where we will look at what the three states are and how they can change at different temperatures. The children will need to use some of the knowledge they gained during their materials work in KS1. To support and enhance the learning in this topic we have organised an exciting trip to the CATALYST museum in Widnes, where we will take part in TWO science workshops!

The first half of a full term begins with a geography unit. Year 4’s first topic is A Great American Road Trip, which begins with exploring the difference between a continent, country, state and city and what makes up North America and South America.

Also on the timetable is Music with Poetry (performance) and Environment (composition) topics; Computing – We are Software Developers; French - Playtime; and DT – Money Containers.

In P.E, swimming will take place on Mondays all year. The other P.E. slots are scheduled on a Tuesday and Thursday. Please ensure that you have your kit in on these days, although things can change so it would be beneficial if kits could be on your child’s peg all week.
