This term our topic is 'The Human Body'. We will be spending time learning about our body. 

Over Christmas we all spent time creating our own human body pieces for the classroom! 

On Thursday 19th March we created our operation games! In our tables we created a plan of what our games would look like. We painted our boards with our own designs, created circuits for our buzzers to work and parts to go in the middle of our bodies! 

In Geography we have been looking at having a wider understanding of Geographical terms. We decided to have a go at making the Geographical terms using our artistic skills. 

In Art we have tie-dyed cushions for our new library. Everyone's pattern were different depending how they pulled or twisted the outer cushion and where they placed the elastic bands. 

On Thursday 6th February we had our Science workshop! We made our own set of teeth, created a digestive system, looked at our fingerprints and conduct experiments about keeping our bodies healthy. 

In English we have been writing explanation texts about the digestive system. We are going to be writing explanation texts about the skeleton, nervous system, muscles and our organs over the next few weeks. Once we have written them all we are going to create a book containing all the information about the Human Body. 

In Maths this term we are going to be looking at Fractions! We have started looking at equivalent fractions, tenths and hundredths and we're moving on to looking at adding and subtracting fractions! 

In Science we are carrying on looking at the Human Body. We have been using our Science lessons to gain more knowledge for our writing in our English lessons. We are also conducting a bread experiment and looking at how quickly germs spread! 

Are you getting your 20 minutes of reading a day? 

Why not try one of these :-) 

Happy reading!

Times table Rock stars

Please remember to practice your times tables weekly! I will be setting times table challenges on times table rock stars for you to complete! 

If you have forgotten your login please ask! 


This term our topic is 'Traders and Invaders'. We will be spending time learning about Vikings, Anglo Saxons and the Scots. 

On Friday 15th November we joined in with Joe Wicks' Children in Need Big Morning Move alongside the Year 5's. It was a great way to enjoy a quick morning wake up! Scan our QR codes to watch the Big Morning Move! 

Thursday 3rd October was National Poetry day! In our groups we all read the poem 'Storm Dragon'. We spent time practising and then filmed it using the iPad's and the green screen! Scan our QR codes to have a listen to our poems! 

In Art we have made pro-types of dragons eyes! Keep you eyes peeled for our next lot of dragon eyes! 

On Monday 23rd September we visited Layer Marney Tower! We had a great day learning about Vikings and Anglo Saxons! 

Over the summer holidays, we all worked hard on creating our own Viking Shield!

Highlights from Year 4 2018-2019

We hopped on our magic carpets and flew to London's West End to see a Dazzling performance of Aladdin the Musical. 

Year 4 taking part in the 'Build a story workshop' at Shrek's adventure on 9.10.18

All of the children should have logins to an app called 'Spelling Shed'. On the spelling shed I have set weekly Year 3 and Year 4 spellings. They will need to practise these as they will be tested on these during the week as we are spending a lot of time on spellings! 

Reading questions to ask the children about their reading books.

Homework- this half term the children already have their homework books and all the homework has been stuck inside them. These books do not need to be returned to school each week. At the end of the half term I will collect them in to see how the children have got on with the homework. Inside their books should be:

  • Homework map 
  • Year 3 and 4 spellings 
  • Maths formulas 
  • TTRS login
  • Reading questions

For some extra free maths games have a look at 

https://mathsframe.co.uk/en/resources/category/22/most-popular. Its a great website for practising maths formulas! 

If you have any questions please let me know!
