Welcome to Year 4 2014-2015
Welcome to our Year 4 page. Here you will find out exciting information about what we are doing in Year 4, photographs, up to date topic information and our homework! We will be sharing what we have learnt and celebrating our achievements by posting it here. You will also be able to find copies of information that has been sent home.
If you have any suggestions for ideas to go on this page, please let me know. Keep an eye on here, as the page will be regularly updated.
Please come and ask if you have got any questions or suggestions for things that can be put on our page.
Our current topic is The Tudors. We will be learning about Henry VIII and all of his wives and then making a comparison between life today and life in Tudor times. A song will (hopefully) accompany our topic to help remember all of the key facts. In Literacy we will each make an information page to create our own Tudor book. In Art we will be looking closely at Tudor buildings and experimenting with chalk and charcoal to make effects.
In Year 4 the class have recognised that they find teamwork difficult. As a solution to this they spent an afternoon joined with a buddy. They had to link arms at the beginning of the afternoon and complete six tasks without letting go. They did an amazing job at only using one hand each and only cheated a few times! Once all six tasks were completed by everyone they were able to let go of their buddy. Since we tried this their teamwork skills have improved.
Wow! - I am so impressed with the standard of your Norman projects. We had an amazing afternoon where everyone presented their favourite part of their project and took lots of photographs of the shields. Below are some of our shields.
