laughSummer Term 2018laugh

 

I hope that you have all had a lovely Easter holiday and you are ready for another exciting term in Class 4JB! This term there will be plenty of exciting things to look forward to. Our main topic this term is geography based where we will be learning all about 'How Green was our Valley’. This will include a trip to Castleton later in the term.

 

Our novel study this term is The Great Kapok Tree by Lynne Cherry and there will be plenty of opportunities to explore the novel through drama, reading and writing. Further topic areas include: An exciting drama opportunity looking at the play 'Macbeth’; A ‘Picture This’ project which looks at Tinga Tinga Art; Continuing orchestra every Friday; Looking at Healthy Eating in DT including growing our own tomatoes in the Bio Dome; A History topic about Ancient Egypt; In Science learning about Marie Curie as well as a topic on solids, liquids and gases; RE & PSHE lessons, Spanish with Senora Simmons and PE lessons- cricket, rounders and athletics – these are outdoor lessons so please remember to bring the correct PE kit including outdoor pumps/trainers every Wednesday. You will also need to bring your swimwear EVERY Tuesday, starting Tuesday 17th April. 

 

You will be taking a letter home with you about homework in 4JB and this includes: Reading 5 times per week to take part in our reading quest, learning a times table given to you by Mrs Barber (children are expected to know all of their times tables confidently by the end of Y4) learning weekly spellings and activities related to our topics which are handed in on a fortnightly basis. Homework standards have always been very high in 4JB and I'm sure you will also do a fantastic job with this too! smiley

Meet Leo, our learning lion who is looking forward to spending time with you over the year

if you are our 'Star of the Week'.

 

 

 

 

 

Each week I will choose a 'star of the week' based on good behaviour, work and attitude. The star of the week will have the opportunity to take Leo home for the weekend to look after him so he doesn't get lonely in the classroom. They can also complete his diary describing his exciting adventures.

Year 4 visit York

On Wednesday 15th November Year 4 children visited York as part of their Viking topic. The children had the opportunity to visit Jorvik and take part in an exciting workshop at Dig where they became archaeologists! The children had a fantastic day and both museums praised them for their enthusiasm, politeness and participation in the activities. A great day out Year 4!

Science- Our topic last half term was sound and we learned about sounds around us and how sound is made from vibrations. This half term both Year 4 classes took part in an exciting sound workshop with Mrs Welsh from Wales High School. The children used an oscilloscope to measure different sounds and investigated vibrations using tuning forks.
