This year we are particularly praying for peace.

 

 

Our Big Question this term is.......

 

Are we coming or going?

This term our Big Question is, 'Are we coming or going?'.

We will be thinking about the Anglo Saxons and their impact on Britain. We will explore their daily life, settlements and their conversion to Christianity. 

 

In science, we will be thinking about living things and the different species of living things through scientific enquiries.

A trip to Ness Gardens will help our understanding of how we can classify and sort living things.

In this topic the children will learn about the importance of trust and trusting in God. Children will develop a deep understanding of what it means to trust each other and in God and explore real life examples of where people have demonstrated this and put their faith into action.

As we move closer to Advent, we explore key scripture such as the Annunciation and the flight into Egypt.

In mathematics, year 4 have been using manipulatives to support their understanding of place value and multiplying and dividing by 10 and 100. They have used dienes, place value charts and number cards to explain what happens when a number is multiplied or divided by 10.

This half term, we are exploring child evacuation letters and their emotive language.

We are concentrating on how they show the emotions of the children through language. We will be analysing letters to help us understand how they might have felt and use this language to write our own letters. 

 

Here are some pictures of our poppies and Black History Month art

On the 16th October, we were lucky enough to have Action Transport theatre group in to perform their play 'Adrift'. It made us think carefully about refugees and their difficult journeys.

We enjoyed our trip to Ness Gardens even if we did get wet ☔️ We identified different insects and vertebrates when pond dipping and going on a mini beast hunt.

Hot seating David and Goliath. We thought about the qualities God looks for in us.

We were very excited for our first lesson in wider opportunities. 

We all learnt our first note and learnt some musical vocabulary such as tempo, pitch, crescendo and beat. We also learnt to identify some rhythms using 'tea' 'coffee' to help us count the beats. 

Year 4 are very enthusiastic and can't wait for their next lesson!

 

Our first lesson playing our instruments 🎼🎺
