Year 4 Weekly News

Home » News » Year 4 Weekly News

What a busy week we've had in Y4! We've done everything, from seeing a gigantic space balloon rise into the sky, to researching the past kings and queens!

During Book Club this week, we split into two different teams to tackle some tricky comprehension. Some of us use our skills to read Chicken Licken, answering a series of questions about the text! Whilst some of us focused upon ''The Wild Robot''. We thought about word meanings and the way in which the author wrote about the playful and curious otters! Well done!
We also introduced our reading challenge this week! It was fantastic to see so many book reviews and points being awarded already — how exciting!

In Maths, our attention continued to be fixed upon fractions. We recapped improper fractions and mixed numbers to begin with. This helped up to take away fractions from a whole, subtract fractions and even aided us in answering some word problems! On Friday, we all completed a quiz to test our skills — you all did amazingly well — well done!

In English, we started our new T4W unit all about biographies. Last Friday, we each completed a cold write without any help! This allowed us to form 3 whole class targets. These targets are: to use pronouns, to use fronted adverbials and to use the correct tense throughout our writing. With that done, it was time to learn our model text! Our biography was all about the infamous Henry VIII! We learnt all of our paragraphs by the end of the week through some fantastic actions! We also completed a series of short burst writes around our targets, including an introductory paragraph about Miss McCurries childhood and tense work!

This was also very exciting as it was Science Week! We had so much fun watching the huge space balloon take off from our field on Tuesday and loved designing our own rovers to head up into space! We also had lots of fantastic competition entries with posters, models and lots more! It will be hard to pick a winner!

In History, we continued to find out more about the Tudors. We built upon our timeline learning from last week, as well as our fact finding mission about the monarchs. This week, we were able to place the Tudor monarchs in order and list key facts/dates about them — very impressive! We are keen to find out what Tudor life was like for a child over 500 years ago — this will form our lesson for next week!

In P.E, we once again had SportsScape. We worked hard to listen to instructions and played some games involving throwing and catching — we used fantastic teamwork to help us!

Throughout the week, we also took part in Worship. One of them involved focusing on picturing daffodils and had a calm, peaceful, reflective moment to ourselves.

During our Friday wellbeing time, we got the chance to finish off our science posters, artwork and had some quiet time to do some mindfulness colouring. We had calm music on and it was a lovely way to end our busy week!

In Art, we continued to learn about the artist, Hans Holbein. We recapped our work from last week and built upon this for our sketches this week. We once again used our
Templates to help us recognise and draw facial features, paying a particular attention to spacing between the eyes, nose and mouth! We drew Anne of Cleaves and learnt about the story behind Hans' painting — can you remember it? Next week, we will attempt our very own self-portraits, whilst also investigating tone — I can't wait!

In R.E, we introduced our new BIG question of ''Why is Jesus called Saviour?''. We thought about the question and explored the word ''saviour''. We learnt its definition and produced some artwork around who we feel are saviours of today's world. They included the NHS, the police, our friends/family and even ourselves! Well done!

In music, we learnt verses to our song — The Truth about Tudors! "On the 22nd of August..." has certainly been stuck in everyone's heads — can you remember the chorus?

In PHSE, we completed lesson 3 of our Heartsmart journey. We thought about what it means to say sorry. We also discussed why forgiveness is so important! Abigail said, "Helping others is the best way to make friends." Whilst Will told us, "Forgiveness is important because it helps us to move on by clearing the memory to make new ones".

Have a lovely Sunday,

Mr Dale
