Welcome to Year 4!
Please take a moment to read through the following power point presentation which gives you the key bits of information for our Year 4 class.
We love reading in Year 4! Have a look at the following lists for quality, age appropriate books...
Here are some excellent online times table programmes that can also be used as an app...
We made Christingles today and talked about the symbolism of the different parts of the Christingle.
The orange represents the world.
The candle symbolises Jesus, the Light of the World.
The red ribbon stands for the blood of Jesus who died on the cross for us.
The four cocktail sticks represent the four corners of God’s earth (N, S, E and W) and also the four seasons.
The sweets symbolise God’s gifts of kindness and love.
2021 will soon be here. Guess who our new year calendars belong to?
Lots of Christmas crafts this week. Here we have a huddle of penguins and a melt of snowmen.
This week has been ‘Anti-Bullying Week’ in school. We started the week off with ‘Odd Socks Day’ on Monday when we celebrated everyone’s uniqueness.
Today Year 4 have mostly been mummifying tomatoes... just like the ancient Egyptians.
Our beautiful Remembrance Day poppies...
This week in R.E. we have found out where Muslims and Jews worship. We have had lots of discussion comparing the similarities and differences between these places of worship and Christian places of worship. We also made a Torah scroll and had a go at writing with the Hebrew alphabet.
Take a look at the amazing research homework about Ancient Egypt that the children completed over half term. Mrs. Tilsley is one very proud teacher! 👏
It has been Science week in Year 4 this week. We have been learning about the different types of teeth and their function. We have also found out about the digestive system. Have a look at our representations of the organs involved, including tights used as the large intestine!
This week in Year 4 we have been history detectives. We looked carefully at some ancient Egyptian artefacts to find clues that would answer our questions.
What is the artefact made from?
What was it used for?
Who might have used it?
How old is it?
Take a look at our work based on the artist Keith Haring. We have designed double page spreads in our sketchbooks to learn about Haring’s life and work. We have also produced some life size action figures inspired by him. The children want to display these on the ceiling in our classroom! Keith Haring once said, “Art is for everyone!” Year 4 agree!
