Welcome to the Year 4 page where you will find useful information about the topics we will learn about this year.

Spring Term 2019

During our first week back at school in 2019, year 4 took part in a session solving maths problems. Children we giving the task of copying a shape from memory in small groups. It required children to work together and to apply efficient approaches to solve the problems. The sessions were very successful and it was great to see all the children working hard together to solve the problem.

One of our year 4 pupils spent time at home creating this wonderful Easter Tree for church.

Decorating Easter trees is an Easter tradition that traces its roots back to Germany.  The traditional "trees" were branches in a vase hung with brightly coloured eggs. Today many homes hang the painted Easter eggs and other decorations on real trees.

During Lent, one ornament per day is added for the 40 days of Lent, or just one per week until Holy Week when an egg is added counting down to Easter. The ornaments are usually hand made as children help to decide what Biblical symbols would make appropriate decorations for the Easter tree.

I am sure you'll agree that this pupil has done a fantastic job with her Easter Tree.


Autumn Term 2018

Throughout autumn term Year 4 took part in weekly swimming lessons, we have had a great start to the year with our swimming, with the vast majority of children achieving at least one certificate. There were also many children who managed to achieve their twenty five metre certificate!

Year 4 attended a science workshop at OLHS, this was a fantastic opportunity to practice a wide range of different science topics to solve a space themed activity. All the children work hard and showed a great attitude towards their work, which they enjoyed thoroughly.


Autumn 1 2018

Last half term Year 4 were really busy learning about the digestive systems of humans and animals. We have looked into how to look after our teeth and what the different types of teeth are used for. The children enjoyed looking into food chains and discovering what types of food different animals eat.

Since September all our Year 4 children have been attending swimming lessons every week. It has been great to see how the children's confidence has grown and it's amazing to see many children already being awarded certificates!

Throughout the half term the children experienced many exciting days. The children really enjoyed taking part in a visit from a black gospel choir, having the opportunity to sing with the choir and practice African drumming.
