Hello and welcome back to all the Year 4 children. We will use this page to keep you informed on the exciting activities and learning that will be happening throughout the year for your children.
Throughout this half term we are learning about the Celts and the story of Finn McCaul. We are focussing on the Celts through our English, History and Art. In Science we are learning about sound and looking at how sound travels through the air and how instruments are used to create sounds of different texture, tone and pitch.
This half term in maths we are focussing on place value and are looking at 4 digit numbers. We will compare, order and find more of less than a given number.
We invite you to join us for our curriculum meeting and pop ins on the 13th September at 3.30pm in the bottom hall. We will use this time to explain the curriculum development for your children throughout the year and to answer any questions you may have.
We appreciate your support as parents at home to extend your child’s learning through extra research and home reading. The additional support of parents will help children to really excel this year.
We look forward to an enjoyable year and working with you and your children.
The Year 4 Team
Year 4 enjoyed Celt day where they immersed themselves in Celtic traditions and learnt about how Celts lived.
We made a roundhouse using knowledge from the story of Finn MacCoul.
We practised weaving and playing Celtic games. “We played rota and it was so interesting to find out what Celtic children played.”
The children and teachers dressed up and used face paint to paint tribal patterns.
We made Celtic drums and added string and beads to a cardboard disk to make sounds.
