Year 4

Hello and welcome to Year 4!

From a Railway Carriage

As artists we will be using different mediums to create landscape paintings. We will start by using watercolours followed by exploring colour wheels and the use of pastels.

As musicians we will be create soundscapes for our poetry.

As mathematicians we are starting with a recap on written methods for multiplication and division. We will then be moving on to a fraction focus. We will be developing our breadth of knowledge on what fractions are, how to use them and how we can apply them to real life scenarios.

As Authors we are starting the term with a poetry focus. We will learn Robert Louis Stevensons’s “From a Railway Carriage” by performing it for other before going on to write our own descriptive poetry.

As athletes we have PE on Wednesday and Thursday so please remember your kits!

Cadbury World

Last week we visited Cadbury World! The children had a fantastic time learning about the history of chocolate, where it is produced and how it gets manufactured. We finished with a workshop by a Cadbury worker who showed us the moulds they used and even quizzed us on what we’ve learnt! (We passed!).


Displays and Children’s Work
Take a look at some of our work and sometimes us in the classroom. You are always welcome to come into school and take a closer look. You can see from the displays in our classrooms the variety of topics we cover. As the year progresses, the displays change. By July, you will be able to see the whole range of subjects we have covered. Our Working walls help us learn – the content builds as the term progresses.
