Premier Sports teach Year 4 PE on a Tuesday. There will be another PE session at some point in the week. At the moment, this will be:

Class 6 on Mondays

Class 5 on Wednesdays

Class 4 on Fridays

However this is subject to change. We ask that the children have their PE kit in school for the whole week as PE days can change last minute.

Homework

This is now all on Google Classroom, unless you have made a specific arrangement with your child's class teacher. 

Maths homework will go out on a Wednesday and should be returned on a Tuesday.

English homework will go out on a Monday and should be returned on a Friday. The children will be tested on their spelling words on a Friday. 

English

In English, the school was recently taken by strange creatures, which we now know are Flanimals! These are strange, alien-looking creatures and we found them in the year 4 area and outside. We have looked at using exciting vocabulary to describe their appearance and behaviour. From this, we are designing our own flanimal and describing it. Our finished pieces are going to be sent to the author! 

 

The children designed their own flanimals and wrote fantastic descriptions describing their appearance, how they move and their behaviour. 

We tweeted Ricky Gervais and he replied! He thought the children's work was excellent and sent us an email and a special delivery...  

Reading

In reading, we have been reading the Nothing To See Here Hotel. We have been introduced to Frankie who lives in a monster hotel which is invisible to humans. We have predicted what is going to happen in the hotel and looked at the main characters in more detail. 

We learnt about the character of Prince Grogbah, who arrives at the hotel for a holiday... or so they think. It turns out that he has actually stolen something from a rival gang of goblins, who are now out to get him!

Throughout the book, we have been inferring characters thoughts and feelings. 

Maths

In Maths, we have looked at four digit numbers and what makes up these numbers. We have partitioned them in different ways, and began to order and compare them. We have also looked at rounding numbers to the nearest 10 and 100. 

 

In addition and subtraction, we have been looking at the partitioning method (some of us have been looking at the column method). 

Creative Curriculum
We have  begun our topic of the Egyptians and have looked at their place in time in relation to other historic events. We have started to look at what achievements this ancient civilisation had and why that is important to us today. 
Science
Our topic in science is solids, liquids and gases. We have been planning and carrying out different experiments to test the states of matter. We have shown gases with lemonade and raisins, and changed a liquid (water) in a solid (dough) by adding spoonfuls of flour. 

Google Classroom

 

If we have to close then Google Classroom is where you will be able to access the latest learning and interact with your teachers. To use Google Classroom you will need your google login and password which has been posted to you/your parents. 

 

Our Google Classroom is a secure learning platform which can only be accessed with each individual child login which is unique to each pupil. Once in to our classroom you will be able to access learning resources and send work back to the teachers. You will also be able to communicate directly with the teachers to receive feedback on what you have done as well as ask for help if you get stuck.
