Year Four

Welcome to year 4. We have two year 4 classes, one called Wilson and the other called Walliams. Miss White is the teacher in Wilson and  Mrs Gulzar is the teacher in Walliams and Mr Pattison works in the class every Thursday. The Teaching Assistants in Y4 are Mrs Rushworth and Mrs Sample.

We know that it is important to keep developing our reading skills as we work to understand complex texts. To help us do this we read at home each day and ask an appropriate adult to sign our reading journal to confirm we have done this.

We also work hard the learn key facts in maths using our Maths Passports so don’t forget to ask us what our latest target is!

Our PE lessons are on Friday.  You will need to come to school wearing your PE kit and you will be able to stay in this all day. PE will take place outside so make sure you have black warm jogging bottoms. Please make sure you do not wear any branded clothing or football kits.

We also have a guitar lessons available after school each Wednesday until 3:30pm, where a specialist teacher comes to school to help us learn how to play.

We have put some information together below so you can find out more about what we learn in year 4:

This half term we will be exploring the question -How does the Earth shake?

We will be start by creating our own volcanic eruption and then look at how and why volcanoes around the world occur. We will be recreating the key layers of our planet Earth to understand what it looks like and how this causes volcanoes to erupt.  Later, we will move onto earthquakes and look closely at where, when and why they happen.  We will also spend some time creating our own 3D structure which will withstand an earthquake. Finally we will look at the impact these natural disasters have on the surrounding areas and whether we can ever be prepared for a volcano or an earthquake.
