In Year 4 we are taught by Mr Tickle (Class 3) and Mrs Clouter (Class 4). We are also supported in our learning by our team of talented support staff Mrs Burge (HLTA), Mrs Bridgeman and Miss Kendrew. On a Thursday morning we are also taught by Mr Greenley for French and RE as well as having a PE session with Premier Sports. Class 3 also has Mrs Oswald on a Tuesday morning for PE and Arithmetic.
As part of the schools celebration of Earth Day on Friday 28th April we explored the use the of 3R's (reduce, reuse and recycle). To do this we thought about ways in which we can reuse objects which have already been used. We did this through creating our own fashion show designs which were shared in the assembly.
We also explored how we can become more self-sustainable by designing our own gardens and planting seeds in biodegradable plant pots.
Year 4 have been studying Passover in RE this term. To finish off the topic, we were very lucky that Rabbi Solomons from the Reading Hebrew Community came to school to speak to the children about his faith and how he will be prepapring for and celebrating Passover.
This term our Creative Curriculum work will be about the UK and Europe. Through this we will be exploring the differences and similarities between the UK and France, and discussing the importance of exporting and importing goods to and from Europe. As part of this we have organised for a trip to Winchester to explore its similarities and differences to Paris.
We planted seeds in unusual containers to grow healthy snacks as part of Health and Wellbeing.
On Tuesday 7th March 2017 we visited Winchester. As part of our trip we looked at physical and human features within the city and discussed how these may have changed over time. We also looked at the similarities and differences between Winchester and both Basingstoke and Paris. Additionally, we discussed how we would show various landmarks as different symbols on a map.
Back at the Discovery Centre we completed a scavenger hunt where we had to describe the locations of pictures we found around the library.
