Welcome to Year 4!

Year 4 - Miss Robinson

TA-Miss Hollinshead

 

 

Our Topic  for Autumn 2 is Volcanoes! 

 

We are looking forward to learning all about Volcanoes. Updates to follow!

English

This half term, Year 4 are reading 'Escape to Pompeii.' The children will travel back in time to the days of the Roman Empire and join Tranio, the son of an actor, and his friend Livia, the baker’s daughter, in witnessing the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in AD79.

The children will use the gripping story-line and beautiful illustrations to create their own setting descriptions. 

Maths

Here are the fluency facts that we are learning about this half term in Maths. It is also important in Year 4 to be good at our timestables!

All the children are encouraged to practise them, in and out of the classroom, especially the x6, x7 and x9s!

All children have a TT Rockstars account and can access this at home!

Trips!

In Autumn 1 Year 4 enjoyed a trip to St James' Church in Shaw. For our RE topic 'Are all churches the same?' the children were greeted by Reverend Dave, who kindly provided the children with some information about the church and the items in-side. The children then completed several tasks, moving around the church taking note of the amazing religious items they found. 

Jack dressing to impress!
