Welcome to Year 4

In Year 4 we provide a collaborative and challenging environment. We strive to achieve our best. Pupils are encouraged to ask questions, solve problems, make thoughtful decisions and become independent learners

Meet the Team:

Mrs Lawrence – Class Teacher

Mr Gray – Class Teacher

Mrs Iveson – 1:1 Pupil Support

Mrs Burke – 1:1 Pupil Support

Mrs Booth 1:1 Pupil Support

Our Topics this term are:

Road Trip USA

We’ll start by ‘visiting’ the states where Native American tribes settled. We’ll use travel brochures and the internet to research New York and write postcards to family members. Using maps, we’ll locate the USA and find the names of the states. We’ll explore Native American myths and write our own. After learning about their cultural significance, we’ll weave beautiful dreamcatchers. Looking at aerial views of natural landmarks, we’ll think about how they might have been formed. We’ll create travel brochures.

At the end of the project, we’ll make a ‘journey stick’ so we can remember where we have visited. We’ll use this to explain our learning journey.

Help your child prepare for their project The USA is an incredible place, with a varied landscape and culture. Why not choose a state to research together and create a scrapbook of exciting locations? You could also make a playlist of American songs from different genres that you could listen to on your road trip. Alternatively, visit the supermarket together to see if you can identify any foods associated with the USA. You might even try some of them!

We will be studying Misty Mountain Winding River, (with a particular focus on mountains) during the second half term.

Religious Education:

We currently have expert visitors in school delivering Bible Explorers to Year 4

Our next focus religion is: Holy week – Easter

Reading:

We promote a love for reading. Year 4 celebrate our daily ‘home’ – readers with tokens and / or prizes. Signatures from an adult are encouraged, so that daily reading can be awarded.

Mastery Maths…

This half – term, we will cover Number and place value, Statistics, Addition, Subtraction, Multiplication, Division. During daily Maths Meetings, we revisit and consolidate our prior knowledge of different areas of Maths which have been taught previously. During these sessions, we enjoy mixing around, working collaboratively using different ‘Kagan’ strategies.
