Year 4

Welcome to Year 4.

 

By the time your children join us they are familiar with the routines and expectations of the Junior School.

In Year 4 we aim to provide an enjoyable and interesting curriculum where the children have fun but also see the importance of learning. We build on all the hard work of the Year 3 teachers and continue to prepare them for the challenges in Year 5 and 6.

 

Our aim is to ensure that the children enjoy their learning through practical activities which are varied and imaginative. We encourage independence although they are given opportunities to work with others.

Our classrooms have access to the rear playground but two of our classrooms have a super view over the school field.

 

The teaching staff are: Miss Parker (Year Leader), Mrs Padley (Class Teacher), Mrs Pickering (Class Teacher), Miss Broderick (Class Teacher), Mrs Jones (Teaching Assistant) and Mrs James (Teaching Assistant).

Pentecost Worship

We have been studying The Kingdom of God in RE. As part of our work we looked closely at Pentecost which remembers the time when the Holy Spirit came to the Disciples and the birth of the Christian Church. We learned how important it still is to Christians today. As part of our curriculum we delivered a Collective Worship for the school. Here we are doing our performance.

Science

In Science we are studying Animals Including Humans. After learning about the digestive system of humans we moved on to teeth. We were given an opportunity to try a plaque disclosing tablet which is designed to show up any plaque on our teeth. We predicted which of our teeth may be stained more and why this might be. Here we are having a go, then showing our results.

Synagogue Trip

 

On Thursday 27th April Year 4 went to the Birmingham Progressive Synagogue. We were made to feel very welcome and Amanda helped us to see many similarities between our religions. This educational visit linked well with our work on Judaism in RE and we showed our knowledge clearly as well as picking up several new and interesting facts.

Here we are enjoying our morning.

INVADERS! Our Inspiration Day

 

For our new topic of Invaders year four dressed up as outdoor adventurers, bringing in a backpack with five survival objects. The children prepared themselves for their journey as they voyaged to the forest school. We gave the children a set of instructions to invade the land and build a new village using only the natural materials around them. In their teams the children overcame challenges throughout their building process; using problem solving and communication to convey their ideas. Take a look at our photos to see how much we enjoyed this experience.

Cadbury World 2017

 

On Tuesday 21st March, Year 4 took a walk to Bournville Cadbury Factory. We enjoyed a talk called Bean To Bar which linked well to our topic of Chocolate. We have been learning about how chocolate  is made and we  looked closely at Fair Trade. Here we are making the most of our day.

Science - Electricity

 

Year 4 have been enjoying Science again this week. We have been looking at electrical circuits.

Here we all are, enjoying learning outdoors. We created a human circuit, collecting power from our battery and carrying this power to our light bulb. After this we investigated the different ways to successfully make an electrical circuit. It did not always go to plan, but we enjoyed the problem solving and finding solutions.

In Year 4, as part of our work on electricity, we got to write a story based on this theme. Here is one example of our work. It not only helps us understand facts about electrical circuits but also has an important message about how to stay safe too.

Culmington 2017!

Despite the rain and wind, children and staff thoroughly enjoyed Culmington. The children behaved extremely well and made the most of every opportunity given to them.  It was lovely to see the children encouraging one another, working as a team and facing some of their fears. A huge success - Well done Year 4!
