Welcome to Year 4!

Our Teacher is Mrs Slack and our Teaching Assistant is Mrs Rowlands

 

 

Our Theme for this half term is the The Romans!

We will be finding out about the Roman Empire and  life as a Roman.  The subjects we will be focusing on are:-

Geography, History, Art and DT.

 

We had a great time visiting Blue Planet linked to our theme 'Blue Abyss'. We saw lots of different fish and even saw some feed!

We enjoyed working with acrylic paint to create these lovely canvasses of the life under the sea. We are very proud of them!

 

Year 4 meet the chicks!

We were lucky to have the chance to look at and hold the chicks that Year 5 looked after from their hatching in the incubator.

We even got to name one! We all put forward ideas and then voted for the one we liked the best. The one chosen was....'Katie'!

We had great fun on a mini beast hunt in Nursery. We found lots of  creatures living in different habitats.

 

We had a lovely day celebrating St Joseph's Day! First we had Mass and then a lovely treat of ice-cream!

Our RE theme is

The Mission of the Church

We will learn that Peter was chosen by Jesus to play a special role in the Church and that Jesus gave his followers a mission – to spread the Good News to others. We will learn that Jesus promised the Holy Spirit to help his followers and that Pentecost was the beginning of the Church. We will learn about the missions of Peter and Paul and about Stephen the first martyr of the Christian faith.

At home:

You could help your children by:

  • discussing with them the life of St Peter and that he was the first Pope

Interviewing Canon Phil

Canon Phil visited Year 4 to talk about life as a priest.  We asked lots of questions and enjoyed finding out about all the things a priest has to do!

Ask your child about the visit!

 

 

Year 4 enjoyed working with Mrs Woods, a professional artist, to continue to develop our skills looking at the work of

David C Miller.

 

Year 4 had a brilliant day at Ogden Water. We did a mini beast hunt and pond dipping in the morning as part of our Science. We became Native Americans in the afternoon!

Year 4 had a great morning working on Native American art. We made dream catches and designed our own version of a totem pole in clay.
