Year 4 The Lion King Weekly Review

Dear Parents,

On behalf of Year 4 we all hope that you enjoyed the production today. We are immensely proud of all the children and they certainly deserve a well earned half term break!

Next term our topic will be Bright Sparks and will link to the Science unit of electricity.

As we enter the final term, we look back at the start of the year and see how far the children have come. Their confidence and attitude towards the show was incredible to see, and they were all a credit to themselves.

We wish you a happy half term break and look forward to a final term, full of learning.

Kind regards,

Year 4 Team

Well done 4GA for your incredible performance today! We couldn’t be more proud of your singing, acting and all round enthusiasm. You were absolutely fantastic and completely blew the audience away.

5RK share their puzzles with 4GA

Today we were very lucky because 5RK visited our classroom with a range of mystery puzzles that they had made. We had to use several different strategies to solve each puzzle. They included calculation, rounding, decimals and missing number sequences. Thank you 5RK, we thoroughly enjoyed this session.

4LP have been busy collecting data this week. We created questionnaires to answer the question ‘what would make a perfect chocolate bar?’ We asked our friends to answer and used Excel to create different graphs to present our data and findings.

Weekly Review

Dear Parents,

Welcome back to school and the beginning of term 3A. Our topic this term is ‘Imaginary Worlds’ and we will be exploring various books that will transport us to magical places.

This is also the term in which Year 4 get to showcase their fantastic acting and singing abilities as we prepare for our production of ‘The Lion King’. The performance to parents will be at 8am on 26th May. We look forward to seeing you all there to celebrate the children’s hard work.

During Literacy we will be exploring and creating our very own discussion texts, learning to appreciate the two sides of every argument and come to a reasoned conclusion; an extremely important life skill!

In Maths the children will be creating their own investigations and collecting data to present to the classes. They will need to be aware of various methods to present data efficiently and to explain what the data shows.

Science will be to investigate how sounds are made and the theory behind this.

Dates to be aware of:

5th May- Speech Day

26th May- Year 4 show

26th May- End of Term

Kind regards,

Year 4

Goodbye and Good Luck to Bella and KK

Everyone in 4MA gave KK and Bella a great send off on Wednesday. We all shared stories and both the girls told the class their favourite moments. The day ended with a big group hug!

It was a sad day but everyone wished them luck. They made such an impact on their friends in such a short period of time and they will not be forgotten by 4MA.

Weekly Review

Dear Parents,

This week the children have been solving tricky word problems and applying all their knowledge of Maths: from addition and subtraction, to mathematics and division.

We had a particularly tricky problem involving Pharoahs, slaves and stone blocks…!!

In Literacy, the children have been planning and exploring some very exciting adventure stories and focusing on the structure. We have written various story openers and had a lot of fun creating endings with a twist!

In History we are continuing to explore the Ancient Egyptians, looking at Gods, artifacts and writing diaries from the point of view of Howard Carter.

We look forward to the week ahead where we will be celebrating Songkran and enjoying a final end of term assembly from Mr Holroyd.

Dates to be aware of:

Wednesday 5th April- Songkran celebrations. Children please wear Songkran shirt with PE shorts.

Friday 7th April- Last day of term, half day.

Tuesday 25th April- Term 3A

Many thanks,

Year 4 Team

Egyptian Artefacts in 4MA

Children in 4MA have been looking at a range of Egyptian artefacts and analysing them. They were discussing what these particular objects may have been used for, their worth and where they might have been found.

Unfortunately, the artefacts aren’t exactly genuine…they are very realistic and scaled down replicas!
