Welcome to Year 4!

 

Thank you for visiting the Year 4 pages; we hope you enjoy browsing them. Here you can find examples of our wonderful work, year group letters and information, homework tasks and useful websites.


Year 4 children are continuing to work hard and have fun. This term much of their English work relates to William Shakespeare; lessons will centre around a story based on Macbeth. They will then move on to writing information texts about the great writer, practising their research skills, note taking and paragraph writing. In history lessons, the children will learn about The Tudors and consider how their own lives are different from children’s in the sixteenth century. In Computing they will develop web pages about Shakespeare. Art lessons will allow the children to study Tudor portraits and trace and pastel their own versions of a famous picture of Shakespeare. In Maths lessons the children will be revising negative numbers, ordering and adding money and exploring the properties of different shapes. Science sees them studying the digestive system and food chains and how sounds are made and heard. The Summer term is packed with learning opportunities and we are all looking forward to an interesting and stimulating few weeks.

 

Check back soon to keep up to date with events in Year 4.

 

 

 

Year 4 - Meet the Team!

On Thursday 14th June, Year 4 went on an exciting trip to Sulgrave Manor. On our arrival, the children dressed up as Tudors and learnt how to greet one another. Whilst on our tour of the manor house and gardens, the children tasted herbs, learnt about working as a ‘spit boy’, discovered why babies were hung on the wall and much, much more! After a Tudor lunch, the children and teachers were immersed in Tudor life; learning songs and dances as well as playing some Tudor games. Many of the children particularly enjoyed skipping with Mr Collier and Miss Steele!

Year 4 were transported back in time to the 16th Century. They had a fantastic day at Sulgrave Manor, in Oxfordshire, exploring further what life was like in Tudor times. They considered how rich and poor people lived, learning more about the houses, gardens, toys and games, food, jobs and conventions of the time. The children even looked the part, dressing up in Tudor clothes. It was a super experience; bringing to life the learning they had completed at school. Year 4 took one of our governors, Mr. Hawke, with them and he had a great time too; particularly commending the children’s behaviour and interest in learning. Well done, Year 4!

Designing a Windmill

Four students from Warwick University came to Year 4 to run a workshop based on designing a windmill. The children were put in teams of 6 and had to design and make a windmill. The children had virtual money to 'buy' items such as straws, cardboard and paper. They could also trade amongst themselves. Each team's windmill was tested at the end of the morning and the winning team were rewarded with chocolate!
