Year 4

Welcome to Year 4!
 
We have a busy and exciting Autumn term lined up.  We will keep this page updated regularly with what we have been learning in Year 4.  
 
P.E will be on a Tuesday this term, so please make sure all children have a labelled PE kit (white t-shirt, blue/black shorts and black pumps).
 
You will find our Autumn planner below detailing some of the activities the children will be doing this term.
Homework will be given out every Tuesday, to be returned the following Tuesday.  Parents and Carers are encouraged to read with their child every night and ensure reading logs are signed.

In SMSC we have been discussing where adults get their money, and exploring reasons why people work.  We discussed the various reasons people worked together and rated them from 'most important' to 'least important'.  There was some great dialogue!
In Science we have been learning about changing states.  We have set up a fair test looking at how quickly ice melts depending on its shape and recorded our results in a bar graph.
We began the Autumn term reading 'Charlotte's Web'.  
We listened to a setting description of the Zuckerman's barn and sketched how we thought it might look inside.  We then described the sights, sounds and smells our barns to our partners.

Year 4 have been learning about search engines.  We learnt all about how ‘web crawlers’ search the word wide web to make an index of web pages.  Working in pairs, we then started to index a small portion of the web based around computing.

 

We took part in some role play while learning about Boudicca's rebellion.
In Spanish, we have been learning which countries speak the language and practising how to give directions to different places in town. 
The spellings for Autumn 2 can be found below.  Children are expected to practice spellings using 'look, cover, write, check' and there will be a spelling test every Tuesday.
