Year 4 2017

The Year 4 children have started their new topic of 'mountains' and they are really enjoying it!  They particularly enjoyed learning about the different types of mountains and how they were formed and completing experiments to understand how mountains are made.  Have a look at the photos below to see the different mountains that we made!


Class Debate

As part of our Geography topic 'Mountains' the Year 4 children were split into two groups, for a class debate.  Half of the class argued that tourism was good for mountain environments and the other half argued that it was bad for mountain environments.  They had lesson time to share ideas and prepare a speech for the debate.  They then listened to one speech for and one speech against and then they had a chance to ask questions and share their ideas to try and win the debate.  Both teams were so good that it was too difficult to choose a winner so it was declared a draw!  Have a look at some of the pictures below to see the class in action.


Anti-Bullying Week 14th November – 18th November 2016


The Year 4 children showed a lot of care and understanding throughout our lessons during anti-bullying week.  They contributed some fantastic ideas during lessons and the whole school assembly and they produced some great work for the display in the hall.  I’m sure they will continue to think of others and the theme ‘power for good’.


Things to Remember

  • P.E. kits – remember PE is every Thursday and Friday.  Please ensure all children have a full PE kit in school.
  • Children must have their reading book in school every day. We recommend that you listen to your child read on a daily basis; this can be recorded in their reading diary.
  • We also encourage children to read a variety of different texts and therefore it will benefit your child if they read story books of their own choice, non-fiction books, newspapers and magazines etc (these can also be logged in their homework diary if you wish). We aim for every child to read to an adult at least once a week at school and books will be changed once the children can confidently read their book and fully understand it.
  • READING COMPETITION – Don’t forget the more signatures in a reading diary means the more chance of winning the school reading competition.  The children can get a signature in their diary from an adult at home, when they have read ANY text.  Once they have 60 signatures their name goes into a pot and they can do this multiple times; ensuring they have more chance of winning.  Last year’s prize was a KINDLE!
  • Homework and research will be given out on a Monday.  Please return these on a Friday; to be marked over the weekend.
