Year 4

Our new topic is Potions!

Our new topic is Potions! 1


We have been looking at rounding numbers in maths and this video and accompanying information might help them if they are finding some of the homework tricky!  Please talk to one of the adults from our class if you would like more information about this topic!



We really enjoyed looking at Top Marks Daily 10, and learning how to improve our arithmetic skills.  So many of the class wanted the link putting on the web site, so here it is - click on the image of the clock!



You also might want to try some of the other learning games on the Top Marks web site - click on the logo below to go to the menu page.



We looked today at a new animation that is going to be the focus of our English over the next week or so - The Lighthouse!  


We used our deductive and inference skills to predict what might happen before we watched the video, and we will be using our observations to create a newspaper report about the events shown.  Watch this space for further news!


Welcome to our class page!!  We are lucky to have five adults working with Year 4 this year - Mrs Furniss, Miss Calderbank, Mrs Archer, Mrs Eagle and Mrs Roxby.  We are looking forward to a fun-filled year with you all.


Our PE days are Monday and Thursday, and we will be going swimming later in the year.  Details of this will be sent out nearer the time.

Spellings will be given out to learn on Thursdays and tested a week later.  Homework is given out on Fridays and is to be returned by the following Wednesday for marking.   



Our first topic of the year is Blue Abyss, in which we will learn all about the oceans and the mysterious creatures that lie beneath.  


Our Engage event for this topic was an exciting trip to The Deep, where we saw sea creatures galore, penguins in The Kingdom of Ice and solved a crime with Inspector Sharkey.



Times Table News!


To help Y4 to learn their times tables we have subscribed to Reflex Maths, an online maths programme for pupils to practice maths facts in a fun way.  Please see Mrs Furniss if you have been unable to log in using the details sent in a recent text.  Children will be awarded 2 dojos each week if they have accessed the learning in the programme at least three times.  We thank you for your support in helping your children learn these important facts that will aid them in all future maths learning and, indeed, life in the adult world!
