Welcome to Year 4's page
Miss Temple and Mrs Stewart are the class teachers and Mrs Draper and Ms Bull are the Teaching Assistants working with the class.
We are a hardworking class who enjoy going on learning adventures.
This half term we will be learning new map skills in our topic.
We are going on a bug hunt in science - exploring the world of living things. We have two dedicated science lessons a week, to give the children the opportunity for a practical approach to support their understanding
We have enjoyed working with The Butterfly Lion in English. A beautiful story, which we are enjoying sharing with the children. They will be learning how to persuade in their writing this half term, looking at advertising in various different mediums
In our guided reading we have been going on a Midsummers Night Dream with William Shakespeare. We are now going to explore this complex and funny story in greater depth.
In Maths, as we are finishing our focus on fractions and will be moving onto decimals next. At the end of each half term, we revisit any areas that we believe need further exploring and also in our early morning maths sessions, we also give the children a chance to refresh their skills on a variety of topics. We encourage the children to practise their Times Tables and are working closely with each child, so that they have an individual plan to progress their knowledge of these important building blocks for future learning.
Each child in the class have a ukulele for the year and they are enjoying learning to play this beautiful instrument in our weekly music lessons.
