Welcome to Year 4
Sound Investigation 10 February
Year 4 took to the playground for their sound investigation this week. They planned an experiment to find out if distance affected sound. They worked in groups, making scientific decisions, to find out if they could hear dice being rolled from various distances. They had to consider how they would conduct the investigation to ensure it was a fair test.
Hello! I'm Mr Anderson and I am the Year 4 teacher as well as Deputy Headteacher. I enjoy seeing children pass through education knowing that we have had such a positive impact on preparing them for their next stage in their school career. Outside of school, I enjoy playing cricket and golf.
Netball Talent Day Wednesday 15th January
Today, 10 children from year 4 had the opportunity to go to Skegness Grammar School for a Netball Talent Day, which was run by Alice Coward, a Wasps Netball player! The afternoon was packed full of drills and competitions. One of our children was also awarded a Golden Ticket, due to his effort and participation.
Christmas Art’s Day 2nd December
A fantastic day was had by all, as the children spent the whole day sticking, cutting, cooking and producing fantastic Christmas crafts. A big thanks go to all the adult helpers who made the day possible. The children will be bringing their wonderful creations home at the end of term!
Roman Shields On the Parade Square! 23rd November
Year 4 did some marching with their Roman shields this week. They demonstrated great listening skills by following instructions to keep in formation as they marched across the playground. The shields looked fantastic and the children looked at the different ways the Romans used them whilst marching to give maximum protection. They tried out the ‘Tortoise’ formation. Can you see why it was called that from the pictures below?
Roman Shields 8th November
Over the half term holiday, Year 4 have been busy creating their very own Roman shields. They are being used as part of their topic work. The children have used them in drama and are also ‘in training’ to perfect their marching techniques with their shields. I am sure you will agree that there are some amazing creations.
Fantastic writing within Year 4 16th October
Over the past 6 weeks, Year 4 have been writing their own chapter for the book Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. They had to invent a character, a room in the factory and write about what happened to their character in the chapter. Each paragraph focused on a different aspect of English. The first paragraph focused on using propositions to describe a scene setting, the next looked at using direct speech. Then, they added embedded subordinate clauses and for their final paragraph they used adverbial phrases. The finished chapters are work to be proud of!
Ukuleles in Year 4! Thursday 26th September
Year 4 have continued to learn to play the ukulele this term with Mr Finis. They are doing a great job and are mastering several new chords. They are showing great skill at not only playing together but also in rounds. It is not always easy to change from one chord to another but they are doing a fantastic job!
Homework so far this term! Thursday 12th September
Topic in Year 4 this term is all about the Romans and there has been some great homework based on this subject. Millie has produced some exceptional work. She completed all 3 of the tasks set carefully and neatly. She was rewarded for her hard work with a Head Teacher Award.
Place value in maths Thursday 10th September
Place value has been the focus in maths this week. We looked at how using place value can help us to order and compare numbers. We also looked at how the position of a digit in a number determines the value of that digit.
