Welcome to Year 4's class page!
The Year 4 team consists of Mr Brenchley and Miss Williams.
The children have all settled into their first week really well.
We look forward to sharing photos of learning and information about events that are happening throughout this academic year. Please check regularly for updates.
One of our main focuses this year relates to multiplication facts up to 12. This ensures we will be prepared for the Year 4 Multiplication Tables Check.
This month's Topic lessons focus on the 100 year anniversary of Welwyn Garden City. This allows the children to discover the history of their local area. In the first week we have watched footage from the 1970's of Welwyn Garden City, allowing us to compare similarities and differences between the past and the present.
WC 30.11.20 - One World Week
This week we have focused on Serbia and have looked at different aspects of this country.
In Geography we looked at similarities and differences between England's and Serbia's human and physical features.
In Science we discovered information about Nikola Tesla, a Serbian scientist that shook the world with his discoveries on electricity.
In Topic we looked at education in Serbia. We were really lucky to receive letters from children that attended an International school in Serbia. We read their letters and responded to their questions about English education.
