Year 4

Welcome to Year 4!

 

Welcome back! We hope you had a great Easter break and we look forward to a very busy Summer Term!

 

In Year 4 we are taught by Miss Scott (Class 3) and Mr Greenley (Class 4). We are also supported in our learning by Mr Wise, Miss Cameron and Mrs Bridgeman.

 

We have a very busy and exciting term ahead, exploring climate change and the impact it has on our lives in Creative Curriculum during Summer 1 and then following the half term break, we will be exploring the Anglo Saxons. In Science, we will focus on living things and their habitats. 

 

PE will take place on Wednesdays and Fridays.  Please ensure PE kit is always in school and that children have the correct footwear.  Please also ensure girls have long hair tied back and wear no jewellery.

 

We will soon visit the Watercress Line as part of our work in English and following the half term break, we will be exploring the Reading Museum to find out more about the Anglo Saxons.

 

We look forward to another very successful term and if you have any questions, please pop in to speak with your child's class teacher.

Art morning

 

To finish off our art work this half term, we had a year 4 morning in the hall to work design and create some collage work. We tried out different paint effects like bubble paint, scraping, flicking and blowing. We then ripped up our colours and started sticking them together to create our work of art.

Maths day

 

Tuesday 20th March was maths day at the federation. Year 4 kept with their flying theme, creating graffiti maths for different plane numbers in the morning before going head to head for TimeTables rockstars. Our big fat maths quiz saw good use of teamwork and a lot of great discussion working out how to solve the problems, before the afternoon turned more creative with aeroplane top trumps made by the children then linking our maths learning with art, finish symmetrical pictures of different flying objects. The children had a fantastic day, and despite the excellent learning told us it didn't feel like they were even doing maths!

World Book Day

 

Class 4 have written, drawn and of course read on World Book Day, finishing the day in their reading dens. Who though sitting under the tables could be so much fun,

Winchester visit

 

Year 4 visited Winchester today to investigate the human and physical features of the city to link with out Creative Curriculum project and to help us with our persuasive writing for later this half term. We had a walk round the city including a very informative trip into the Cathedral before walking through Kingsgate and down past Winchester College to Wolvesey Castle. An exhausting but very enjoyable day.

Internet Safety Day

Today in Class 3 we discussed how to use the internet safely and positively.  We started off by using a Bingo style set of situations where we had to identity if we felt worried, happy, angry or no too sure.  We then made a class pledge on how to be positive on the internet and created a class jigsaw with all our suggestions.

Trip to the synagogue in Reading

 

Alongside Christianity, Year 4 are learning about Judaism this year. We visited the synagogue in Reading where we had a tour of the synagogue its self, saw the Torah scrolls before going into the hall next door to find out more about the Jewish faith and traditions. It was a fascinating experience and we're very grateful to the Reading Hebrew Congregation for hosting us.

Our trip to St Michael's church.

 

Year 4 visited St Michael's church to explore the concept of "Holy". There were lots of fantastic activities for us including looking at Baptism at the font, the stained glass windows, the bread and wine and the memorial chapel. The children all thoroughly enjoyed the chance to visit the church and the effort that was put into the arrangements for our trip.

Scientific changes

 

We have been looking this week at reversible and irreversible changes in science. Mr Greenley wanted to prove how extreme changes can be with an outdoor experiment. Below is the video evidence of what happened. Thanks to cameraman Gervin!

Slime Olympics

 

We investigated different liquids in science today, looking at how fluid they were and talking about how tight we thought the particles were. Our fastest liquid was water and our slowest was custard. It was really interesting to compare how quickly they went down our slime trails!

Solid, liquid or gas?

Year 4 today were learning about different states of matter and how the particles behave in each state. To demonstrate this, we went onto the playground and acted like the particles in each state.
