Welcome to Year Four!

Friday 22nd September 2023

In Acacia and Damson class, the children have been learning to write as part of a group, sharing their ideas to improve simple sentences. In maths they have been continuing learning about place value, including finding 10,100 and 1000 more or less than a number. In PE, they have learnt to defend in basketball while dribbling a ball. In gymnastics they have been working on improving their confidence with using a range of equipment. Science has involved learning about how to classify invertebrates using a range of criteria, including the groups of mammals, fish, birds etc. This year, the children have begun their paired reading with the EYFS classes, enjoying sharing a book and reading to the younger children. It was lovely to see how much they enjoyed this activity and how caring the year 4's were towards the younger children.

This week in year 4, the children have learnt how to dribble in basketball and loved learning how to safely use the gymnastics equipment. In maths, they have been learning to partition numbers into thousands, tens and ones up to 10,000. During English lessons we have focussed on developing grammar skills, learning to identify verbs, adjectives, adverbs and adverbial phrases as well as use them within their writing. As part of our maps topic, the children learnt to create aerial view maps.

We have had a fantastic first week, learning about Australia and Australasia as part of our continents week. The children created beautiful aboriginal paintings and printed using foam tiles (which they indented with their design) and paint to make Australian themed prints. In Damson class we have learnt a Haka dance from New Zealand and created Haka masks. Year four also learnt about the key cities, territories and locations in Australia, labelling them on a map. In other art, they followed steps to learn to draw a koala and kangaroo. In a computing lesson, they used Ipads to research and compare key facts about Austrailia compared with another neighbouring country.
