I can’t believe how fast the first term has gone in Year 4. We have done so much!
In English, we have been doing lots of work around our first class novel of ‘The Diary of a Killer Cat’ We created our own animal diary, we made predictions about what might happen once the book had ended and we described our favourite characters. We really enjoyed reading our second novel, 'The 100 Mile an Hour Dog.' We looked at the different characters in the book and even wrote a diary entry as if we were Trevor!
We have done so much in Maths too! We began the year learning about place value, roman numerals, estimating, addition and subtraction and it got a little tricky with those 3 and 4 digit numbers – but we got there!
What about Science? We have been researching the difference between solids, liquids and gasses, we even made chocolate crispy cakes to show the reversible process from solid to liquid and back to a solid. Parents beware! – Year 4 also know about how to work safely with electricity around the home, so they will identify any danger zones or overloaded plug sockets!
In RE we have looked at God, David and The Psalms, reading the story of David and Goliath, exploring the symbolism of light, researching ‘Christingle’ which will help us when we visit Liverpool Cathedral in January for our ‘Rock around Christingle’ celebration. We have also been focusing on our school values, our class value in Year 4 is perseverance.
History has been great fun this term, learning all about the Romans and in geography we have begun researching different cities in Spain to create a powerpoint presentation.
