YEAR 4

What to expect in Year Four…

 

During the course of the year, the children will be provided with diverse and creative learning opportunities across the curriculum including:

  • Developing their understanding of English by using a range of books and authors;

  • Learning about mummification;

  • Designing and making canopic jars from clay;

  • Building and creating tomb exploring robots;

  • Questioning whether artefacts should be taken from the country they came from;

  • Learning about the culture, geography and climate of a different European country;

  • Devising and making their own pizzas;

  • Understanding how the Romans have influenced our language and country;

  • Learning about theme parks, fairgrounds and fun fairs;

  • Designing and building fairground rides;

  • Learning about the scientific world by carrying out investigations and using technology in exciting ways;

and many other exciting and engaging tasks.  We are also planning to take Year Four on an educational visit to Colchester in the spring term as we learn about the history of the Romans in Britain.

 

During Year Four we will put an emphasis on helping all children become fluent and confident with their multiplication tables.  As well as dedicated teaching of the multiplication tables we will be encouraging the children to use ttrockstars and take part in battle of the bands!

COASTAL SCHOOLS

The children will have lots of opportunities this year to visit the coast in Leigh.  The children will explore the environment, learning from it and about it. Each time we explore the coastal location the children will be able to express their understanding in many creative ways.

 

Our aim is for each class to visit every half term and in most weathers.  When we visit, the children will need to bring a coat in order to be warm and comfortable with suitable footwear and warm trousers.  On sunny days a hat is also required. It would be helpful if they have a spare pair of socks on that day as well as a different pair of footwear to change into.

 

Whilst we plan to go on the following dates, should the weather prove to be too inclement to allow us we will look to rearrange the date.

4L  - Tuesday 9th November 2021 am

4R - Thursday 11th November 2021 am

4D - Thursday 25th November 2021 am

4B - Wednesday 8th December 2021 am

It will be a busy and exciting year for the Year 4 children.
