Welcome to Year 4
Welcome to the Year Four page.
Here we aim to share useful information that you can refer back to, we also want to celebrate and share the children’s learning with you.
Our PE days are Monday and Wednesday. Spellings are uploaded to Teams at the end of each week and will be tested on Fridays. Maths homework is explained on Teams and will be set on Prodigy or Purple Mash every Friday and is due the following Friday. Please ensure your child brings their book to school everyday so we can read with them and change their book. Children must also reads at home, on BoomReader, twice a week.

Year Four Spellings

Repetition and application is key when it comes to children remembering their spellings. Thank you for your ongoing support with this.
Year Four Learning
In Art this topic, we have been studying the artist Pieter Bregual and his painting Children’s Games. We investigated the different games demonstrated in the painting, discussing how this is different from today. We then designed and created our own 21st Century versions of the painting, featuring our favourite games.
In English, we have been reading the book Beowulf. So far, we have made predictions based on images in the book, produced setting descriptions, written diary entries from King Hrothgar’s perspective and produced a news report on the tragic events that had occurred in Denmark. As we have been studying Anglo-Saxons in History, this book has tied in well with our topical learning and has allowed our creative juices to flow. We fully recommend this book to others who are interested in heroic epic tales and gruesome villains.
Year 4 love doing the ‘Daily Mile’!
We are currently going swimming on Monday afternoons and learning tag rugby on Wednesday afternoon. We all love getting stuck in and having a go!
In Science this half term, Year 4 have loved learning about Sound. Year 4 have enjoyed learning about vibrations using musical instruments. Year 4 are able to explain how we hear sounds, including the inner structure of the ear.
Nell Bank Residential
In February, Year 4 went on a residential to Nell Bank! We had an incredible time completing team-building activities, learning how to read a map, building dens using forest materials and more!
