Welcome to Year 4

Learning from home

Monday 6th July

Welcome to week 5 of the half term and week 12 of home learning!  The weeks are really flying by now as we get closer to the summer holiday.  Keep working hard for the next three weeks in readiness for the move to Year 5.  It is really important that you try to stick to the weekly timetable so that you are focusing on key skills that we would like you to master for next year.  

As always it was lovely to see some of you in school in our key worker bubble last week.  It was also great to see 11 of you at the first Year 4 picnic last Thursday and I am looking forward to seeing more of you this week!  At the end of this week I will upload photos from both picnics as well as photos to show what our key worker children have been getting up to in school.  


Have a lovely week.

Love, Mrs Poole and Mrs King

Angry Planet


Our Spring term got off to a fantastic start with an exciting Freshwater Theatre workshop called, 'The Quest for... Volcanoes and Earthquakes.'  This was a great introduction to learning about natural disasters happening all around the world and has already inspired some fantastic recount writing in class.  We have also enjoyed a class trip to Park Bridge in Ashton where we spent the day learning about volcanoes with a local geologist.  We enjoyed exploring and searching for volcanic rocks in the old quarry area.  

Going for Gold- The Ancient Greeks


We have already learnt so much about life in Ancient Greece.  From the importance of Greek pottery in providing information about ancient Greek life, to stories of mythical heroes such as that of Perseus and his daring journey to bring back the head of Medusa! 


Mrs Poole and Mrs Archer have been incredibly impressed with the quality of work produced for our Ancient Greece homework showcase.  The children were so proud to talk about what they had done and what they had found out and all spoke so confidently.  Well done Year 4!
