I am Miss Davey, the Year 4 class teacher. The children are also supported in their learning by Miss Shields. The children in Year 4 are fantastic learners. Explore our Class page to see some of the fantastic, exciting things we have done this year. You can also head over to our 'Curriculum' page to see more about what we are learning this year!
PE is now taught on a Thursday afternoon, where the children will be taking part in Games sessions. Please ensure your child has a full PE kit in school on Thursday afternoons. It is vital for health and safety reasons that the children have the correct PE kit.
A positive work ethos makes all the difference to your child's learning, so your support from home is welcomed and encouraged. Reading is a very important aspect of learning, so we actively encourage children to read every night. It is important that your child has a book bag so they are able to take home their Reading Record and Reading book. Book bags can be purchased at the main office.
Every Friday, homework will be given out and is to be handed in on Thursday the following week. The purpose of this homework is to review what the children have learnt during the week. The children will also be given weekly spellings to learn.
In Maths we learnt about ‘estimation’. We thought about where estimating is used and why it is used. Year 4 jumped, rolled hula hoops and threw beans bags as far as they could. They then used metre sticks to measure how far they went. The children estimated the total and difference of their group's results.
The children watched a band online called the 'Weapons of Sound'. They used junk materials to create their own instruments. We were inspired by this band to create our own musical instruments using only junk materials. We discussed how our instruments could make a high and a low sound.
Mr Mills visited Year 4 to give the children the opportunity use interesting technology to learn all about Ancient Rome. The children had the exciting opportunity to experience 'Virtual Reality' as they explored different areas in Ancient Rome. The children then experienced riding on a rollercoaster, being underwater with the sharks and being in the jungle surrounded by monkeys. Year 4 loved it and we cannot wait for Mr Mills to bring more exciting ICT equipment for us to use.
