Year 4

Welcome to Year 4!

Summer 2 Home Learning

Welcome to our last term in Year 4! We all hope that you had a lovely half term and enjoyed the beautiful weather we have been lucky to have! This is obviously not how we planned to spend our last term together, however we are so proud of each and every one of you, children and adults included, for what you have already achieved! This term we will continue to upload weekly content, excluding Fridays, due to 'Feel Good Friday'. We have loved receiving all of your SeeSaw messages and emails letting us know what you are up to.

Please do continue to share anything with us, this includes activities that aren't school orientated! It does make our day!

 

We are all missing you and really hope we can get back to some normality soon. But for now, please take care and stay safe with your families. As always, please let us know if you have any queries or questions. 

 

Miss Hawkins, Mrs Jonker and Mrs Metcalf

Summer 2 Week 7 Home Learning

Welcome to Week 7! This is our last week! What a crazy summer term it's been! We want to take this opportunity to thank every one of you for all your hard work and for sharing everything with us on SeeSaw. We hope you have a lovely last week and enjoy the activities we have set for you.

Maths, this week, is slightly different. You still have the option to complete the White Rose Hub sheets and watch the videos if you wish (see below). However, we have decided as it’s the last week to focus on just times tables and number facts. There is a timetable of activities which include TTRS and Mathletics for the whole week. These are just short activities and are mainly game based. We hope the children have fun with these.

Well done to all those that completed our Literacy unit: Mission Possible. Your hot writes were great and were a pleasure to read. This week, we have set some fun Literacy tasks for you to complete! We can't wait for Thursday's! Please share them with us!

A sincere well done from us, for everything you have and continue to achieve everyday! 
This week is a short week, with our early May bank holiday on Friday 8th May. We are also off timetable on Thursday 7th, so you can complete some activities based around VE Day. It is the 75th Anniversary this year, and we would encourage all to commemorate this national event together!

This week is immersion, so it is about reading or listening to the story (there is a link to an audio version) discussing the text, answering a few questions and looking at some of the vocabulary and spellings within the text.

As always, please message your teacher if you have any questions.

Week 3 Home Learning

Maths

This week in Maths may look a little bit different to previous weeks. We are having to move away from the White Rose Hub material due to the fact they have now joined up with BBC Bitesize, who will provide videos and interactive activities on various aspects of Maths. The focus is now preparing the children for Year 5 and securing concepts, rather than teaching new content.

As Devon had an earlier Easter holidays to other parts of the country, we are currently ahead of the game and so we have this week ‘spare’ before the White Rose Hub and BBC Bitesize partnership go live. Therefore, we have made the decision to recap over the BBC Bitesize daily lessons from last week (20th – 25th April) as they are key areas which would benefit from some revision.

On the plan there is a link which should take you straight to the matching day’s video and activities, just like with White Rose Hub. The daily plan also looks the same with Bronze, Silver and Gold activities to choose from. The Gold activity for each day (besides Friday) will be on the Year 4 blog for you to download and these are similar White Rose Hub sheets, which I know lots of you enjoyed working through.

 

Literacy

This week in Literacy we are going to be writing our own stories! Monday and Tuesday will be working on planning our stories, Wednesday and Thursday will give the children time to write their own versions of Cinderella (in school we would call this Hot Write) and finally, Friday will be editing. On the attached 'Weekly Literacy Plan' and the individual tasks will give additional information on this.

Over the week you will be looking at verbs, tenses, time adverbials and prepositional phrases. Please choose from the bronze, silver or gold activity and where needed there is supporting materials attached. One activity is linked to vocabulary – where you need to, please use a dictionary and thesaurus (online or physical) to support you.

February 2020

 

In RE, we have been focusing on

 

Christianity.

 

Specifically, we have looked at the Trinity and how Christians show their beliefs. A visit from Reverend Wiz allowed us to reflect on a Christian Baptism and its connections to the Trinity.

February 2020

 

We had such a fun day creating lots of variation in sound on our

Science Day!

 

 We explored pitch and how sound travels. The children loved creating their string telephones and working out how they work best! Next term, we will be looking at Electricity and carrying out lots of fun and exciting practical activities. 

January 2020

Year 4 are currently exploring:

SOUND

We are investigating how we hear things and the process of vibration.  The children learnt that the louder the sound, the bigger the vibration and the quieter the sound, the smaller the vibration.  We experimented with this using drums and rice!  

Our Tuning Fork experiment was fascinating and the children observed the vibration in and out of water!

What amazing Rockstars Year 4 could make in the future! It was the launch of Timestable Rockstars and the children were invited to dress up as a Rockstars and complete various Mathematics tasks throughout the day! There will be continuous battles that will be scheduled each week for the whole school... so make sure you get rocking!

4KH Rockstars!

This term, we have been focussing on States of Matter within Science. To explore the difference in solids, liquids and gases, we recreated the molecules using Cheerios! We also looked at the change of state in 'Outrageous Ooze' - it just couldn't make up its mind!

Year 4 have been having a big focus on how we approach our Maths work! We have applied a new approach, which includes moving through the process of Fluency, Reasoning and Problem Solving! This has meant that we are able to practically use our resources and verbalise our Maths, using Maths talk! 

"This is really helping my work, as I can talk about what is going on in head"

 

Below is some pictures of us tackling our Maths, using our Maths partners too!

"We will remember them"

Have a look at our beautiful artwork we created to remember those that have fought, or are fighting for us! There were great conversations on why we have 'Poppy Day' and all of the children loved creating their poppy projects.

Clive Pig Visit!

Year 4 spent the morning with the story teller, Clive Pig. His stories were amazing and the children were captivated by his use of voices and chances for imagination for all the Viking stories he was telling!

Viking Day!

Year 4 dressed up brilliantly in their Viking costumes to take part in a very successful Viking Day! We had great fun helping the invading Vikings by making helmets, weaving them clothes and even feeding all those hungry bellies with Viking Bread!

Viking Longboat Making - DT Day

Thank you to all those that brought in lots of resources to help build our Viking Longboats! The children worked through a design process, a mock attempt, before creating their beautiful masterpieces!

Spring 1

Year 4 Spain Wow Day 

What a WOW day! Flight FR1057 completed! Year 4 had a great day re-enacting a flight to Spain; they had to check-in with their passports and boarding passes, watch a very important safety video, watch some in-flight entertainment, snack on some of the great refreshments the flight had to offer and end the experience with baggage reclaim! Thank you for your support in getting us to the airport!

 

For our WOW day, we also invited a Spanish dancer to teach the children some moves! We learnt all about the rhythm of salsa!
