Year 4

Welcome to the Year 4 page!

We use this section of the website to share what we are doing in the classroom and at home. Scroll down to see more...

The Gallery

Year 4 have had a special BOOK WEEK (not just a Book day) and have completed many tasks to celebrate books and reading. Look out for pictures of Mr Stink, Wanted posters for the Highway Rat, Shelter designs linked to the book: The Explorers, creative book marks, potato book characters and more... Today we dressed up and took photos of ourselves reading in unusual places!

Year 4 have been thinking of different ways to teach other children about keeping themselves safe online. They have sent in posters, videos, information packs and interactive quizes. Please take a look below...

Year 4 have had a screen free afternoon. The challenge was "Using whatever you have in your kitchen, can you make an animal ?" Look at these AMAZING creations and see if you can work out what animal they have gone for!

We have been learning the difference between acute angles, right angles and obtuse angles. Here is a different way to represent the different angles - made by one of our own Year 4s!!

To our lovely Year 4s

We're so sorry that we weren't able to say a proper bye bye before going into National Lockdown but we will be in contact every week to check that you are OK. We are incredibly impressed with all the remote learning that has been taking place already and we love the photos of work that you have emailed in to the Year 4 address.

All the remote learning is within the remote section of the school website. Go to:

We have had a wonderful day taking part in 'Children in Need- Five to Thrive' activities...

WB 18th May 2020      Super  Science  week !

Your work just gets better and better!! Thank you for all your creations last week - we were blown away! So many of you managed the ocean in a jar challenge and loads of you researched into weird and wonderful sea creatures, many of them living deep below the water's surface where there is very little light. We have put all the photos that you sent in, in an impressive slideshow (please see below). 

This week is another practical week where we explore how amazing water is. We have found all sorts of experiments (some easy, some more challenging) for you to try out at home - using objects and that you have around the house. Get adult help and enjoy working as a family to impress us with your scientific skills. Remember: we LOVE seeing your videos and photos so email them to us at year4prospect@outlook.com by Friday 22nd May.

Lots of love, stay safe  Mrs Ferullo, Mrs Cartwright and Mrs Bennett x x x

You are ALL superheroes!!

 

Thank you to everyone who sent in photos, Word documents, PowerPoints and videos - they were AMAZING and demonstrated to us how brave, positive and innovative you all are!

 

We saw so many acts of kindness: Bethany is completing a fundraiser for her cousin who has Cystic Fibrosis and is particularly vulnerable during this time. Every day during April, Bethany is running 3Km as her daily exercise to raise money.  We also saw children writing letters to friends and family to send their love and we saw you thinking of genius ways to stay in touch with grandparents. What was lovely to see was how you were all looking after each other in your houses: looking after Mums and Dads, helping with younger brothers and sisters and looking after your pets. Many of your family members had been your 'sidekicks' so keep looking after them! 

 

You guys are messy and noisy!  We loved seeing all the creations you had made: delicious cakes, paintings, chalk drawings, volcanoes - how creative you all are! We also loved to hear (and watch) you guys learning how to play the guitar, the piano and make up your own dance routines to music. Keep sending in those videos! 

 

Staying energised:  What you made very clear was that you are keeping fit and healthy during this time which is GREAT! We saw bouncing on the trampoline, running, gymnastics in the garden, ball skills, dancing in the house, going for walks with your family, bike rides, paddling pools, rope swings... there is no end to your ideas.

 

We have managed to put together a slideshow (see above) of some of your photos. For those who sent in videos, we have captured some images from your video - hope that is OK!

Well done to all of you. Stay brave and stay safe!

Lots of love from Mrs Ferullo, Mrs Cartwright and Mrs Bennett x x x
