Year 4 Summer 2019


Welcome to the class page for Year 4!

Who can believe we are in the final term of Year 4 already? Over the past few weeks, the children have been learning about Non-Chronological reports, and through our class text, The Wind in the Willows, they have written some smashing reports about the characters in the book. They have also used their Science and ICT learning to be able to classify the different animals using their characteristics, through branching databases.

We have been looking closely at ourselves in RE and thinking about the self-discipline needed to achieve our hopes and dreams. We have also created silhouette collages in Art of our favourite things.

Our Geography topic this Half Term has been on Europe, and we have enjoyed learning about different countries, even watching Eurovision as part of our research! After Half Term, we will continue learning about world geography as we discover where our food comes from. We will be commencing our topic with a class trip to the Essex Food and Farming Day, where will be able to learn first-hand about agriculture, livestock, crops and machinery. In class, we will be using our ICT and Geography skills to research information and present our findings to an audience.

In Maths in Year 4, the children have learnt different ways to solve calculations using division, multiplication, addition and subtraction. The children became teachers for the morning, and made videos explaining how to use the different strategies. Below are some of the links for their video explanations. We hope you enjoy them!
