Welcome to Year 4

In our year group, we have three classes named after books by David Walliams - Gangsta Granny, Midnight Gang and Queen’s Orang-utan. The teachers in Year 4 are Mrs Dowler, Mrs Sutherland and Mrs Gates. Year 4 are also very lucky to have other adults that teach us and support our learning. We have lots to look forward to this year, such as the Christmas production, Kingswood residential and swimming in the summer. Keep checking back on the blog to find out what we are up to…

This term, we are writing narratives based on Roald Dahl’s Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. We will be using our writing skills to write a ‘lost chapter’. In Topic, we are studying St Lucia and learning about life on a tropical island. Our Science topic is States of Matter where we are finding out about solids, liquids and gases. Alongside this, we have lots of exciting activities planned for Art, PSHE, RE, Computing and PE. PE days are Tuesday and Wednesday.

In Year 4, all children take part in a brass project, run by NMPAT, where they learn to play either the trombone or trumpet. Our first class have already started and the other classes will have their chance in the Spring and Summer Terms.

We have had a busy term rehearsing for the Year 4 Christmas production, Christmas is Forever! This week, we put on three fantastic performances. Our spy show was full of songs and jokes and kept everyone entertained throughout. We saw the baddies defeated and Christmas was saved in the end!

Thank you to all the parents and carers who provided such fabulous costumes. We really enjoyed ourselves and are now busy preparing our X-mas Factor song ready for next week’s festivities. Watch this space…
