‘Learning to Succeed’

Year 4

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. 

Pictures to feature soon...    

25.11.20 - Reading / Art - As a class, we are currently reading Kensuke's Kingdom by Michael Morpurgo. We have been considering the feelings of the characters on the island. One of the things that creates a great bond between the two of them is shell painting. With these observations from Michael in mind, the children made their own paintings on rocks. Their focus to detail was amazing!

23.11.20 English - We are looking at the myth Romulus and Remus. Today we discovered that the brothers argued about many things. We discussed other topics that they might have argued about and then took the role of Romulus and Remus. In pairs we improvised dialogue and focused on the use of intonation and body positioning. I must admit we have a few future actors and actresses.

13.10.20 World Maths Day. We read "Prehistoric Actual Size" and had to order the dinosaurs by their height and date of existance. We then compared ourselves to the heights of the dinosaurs and made a timeline to chronologically order the dinosaurs in terms of their existance.

01.10.20 Science - Children had to find items and understand what was vibrating to cause the sound.

01.10.20 Maths - Year 4 had to estimate the placement of different values on a metre stick
