Welcome to Class 3/4J

                                                       Mrs Jones (Teacher)

                             Mrs Wainman (Teaching Assistant Monday and Tuesday)

                        Mrs Fay (Teaching Assistant Wednesday, Thursday and Friday)                                               

Here are some important things for you to remember as this new school year starts
  • PE will be on Wednesdays and Friday and the children will need correct PE kit to take part. PE kit should be made up of a white t-shirt, black shorts and PE pumps, not trainers.
  • Please label your child's uniform and PE kit so things do not get lost.
  • Swimming will begin for Year 4 Tuesday 13th September, if your child is involved you will receive a letter soon.
  • Maths homework is sent home on Fridays, and that needs to be handed in the following Wednesday. Every child is expected to complete and hand in their homework every week.

Reading is incredibly important still in KS2; please try and read with your child for ten minutes at least three times a week. Reading books and reading records need to brought to school every day. 

 

Maths Week

In the autumn term we had Maths Week. The Year 4 maths set was full of investigations and identifying things such as patterns in number. We also rose to the Tiddlywink Challenge where we investigated whether thumb length correlated with how far a tiddlywink would travel when pushed by another one. Here are some photographs of the children measuring how far the tiddlywinks travelled. 

 
                                  

                                           Topic based learning
 
Spring 2
We have launched this half term's learning with our topic 'Flow' all about rivers and water. We have already started our writing using The Wind in the Willows and the children have produced some super colour wheels in our art lessons.  In Science we are learning all about sound and investigating pitch changes. 
 

Spring 1
We learned about Heroes and Villains using 101 Dalmatians and Peter Pan which the children really enjoyed. There were some fantastic examples of writing about the heroes and villains we studied in History lessons.
 
 
Autumn 2
Our new topic for this term was Mighty Metals and we used two high quality texts for our writing; The Tin Forest and The Iron Man. We investigated a range of materials and how they affected the movement of a car along a ramp measuring how far the car travelled each time.

 
Autumn 1
We started our learning for this year with an exciting topic called Urban Pioneers which involved a visit to the Avoncroft Museum of Buildings to learn how buildings have changed over time.
