Year 4

Welcome to Term 6

Welcome back! Mrs Roberts and I hope you all had a good half-term. We have some very busy  weeks in the run-up to the end of the school year.

This term we continue our swimming lessons at Henbury Leisure Centre. So far the children have enjoyed the sessions and you can see the progress they are making week by week.

Now the warmer weather has arrived could we ask that you make sure your child brings a water bottle to school every day. Under Covid regulations we are not allowed to issue cups for drinks in class. You may also wish to send a sun-hat into school for lunchtimes. Could you also ensure that your child has their PE kit in school each week.

This term we have two enquiries. The first is   “What should we flush down the loo? The second is “What is creativity?”.

As Scientists we will be thinking about water pollution and the affect we have on the environment.

As Artists, we will think about what is meant by creativity, how we can be creative and how do we respond to others creativity. 

​Homework

Please continue to hear your child read for 15 minutes each day. This should be recorded in their reading record each day, signed and brough into school. Book prizes are still available for regular reading.

The spelling list for this term has been emailed to all parents or is available to download from this page. Your child can tell you which group they are in. The class will be reminded of their words for the week on Monday to be learnt over the week, for a test on Friday.  Please support your child by encouraging them to practice regularly. They can also log onto Spelling Shed to practice their words.

Other points

As Athletes we will have P.E.  every Tuesday and Thursday. This year we are asking the class to bring their PE kits in to school on a Monday and take them home on Friday. Please could you check each Monday that your child has their kit ready to take to school.

Water Bottles: Please make sure your child brings a water bottle to school each day. Under the Covid regulations we are not allowed to give out water bottles or hold them in school overnight.

Thank you.

Scootability

Year 4 took part in Scootability. The class learnt how to use a scooter safely and even tried a few tricks. They had great fun, as you can see from these pictures.

Scientists

To complete our forces enquiry, we made our own compasses and investigated the effects of magnet fields.

Musicians

Recently the class enjoyed an African drumming workshop where they played the Djembe drums and found out how to make the drums have different voices.

Scientists

As scientists we have been investigating friction from different surfaces.

Artists

Year 4 have been creating some art from our ‘Taking a pencil for a walk’ images as well as looking at the work of Georgia O’Keeffe.
