  Autumn 2 in Year 4  
 

Christmas spirit has been in full swing in Year 4 this month!

The children have really honed in on their comprehension skills in English, thinking about how we can find information in a text. In Maths we have continued to work on multiplication, focusing on fluency and recall so that we can quickly recall timestable questions out of order. The children are really enjoying challenging themselves!

We have also been lucky enough to receive a (virtual) visit from Santa Claus, and to watch a pantomime, provided by the PTA, which was great fun!

Finally, the children had an amazing time practising and performing their Christmas songs - I hope you enjoy watching them too! Have a very Merry Christmas from all of us in Year 4 - can't wait to see what the New Year has in store!

 
  Autumn in Year 4  
 

We have been incredibly busy in year 4! The children have truly thrown themselves into our Geography topic of Rainforests this term. Initially we focused on where rainforests are located in the world, their climate, and the creatures that call these areas home. We then delved deeper into why rainforests are so important, what deforestation is, and its causes. We have linked our Geography learning closely to our English and Art/DT units where the children have been creating balanced arguments and creative pieces, alongside looking at indigenous art and creating our own sculptures using natural resources. The leaf-bowl sculptures are truly stunning and the children are really looking forward to bringing them home and giving them to someone special!

In Maths we have been consolidating our understanding of the foundations of Maths, with place value, addition and subtraction and now multiplication as our focus areas. Year 4 have been working hard to try different methods and are on their way to becoming timestables superstars!

Finally we have been lucky enough to have had two themed days and a visit so far this term! We took part in the wonderful Roald Dahl Day alongside Year 3 and celebrated our Rainforests topic with a brilliant 'Rainforest Day' at the end of October. We also had a fantastic visit from the CLC who came last week to run an ICT workshop on robotics. The children were amazing and loved programming and controlling their very own robots. What a term we’ve had already! Bring on Christmas!
