Year 4

Welcome to Year 4!

 

Welcome to Spring 1 Year 4!

 

Our theme this term is. . . I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here. 

 

This term you will be reading 'The Jungle Book' by Rudyard Kipling in English and ‘Charlotte's Web’ by E. B. White in our Reading lessons. This will be directly linked with our Geography work 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here', where we will be looking at rainforests around the world. 

 

In Maths we will be focusing on measurements; length and perimeter, area, time and money. Continuing to deepen our understanding with lots of exciting reasoning challenges! We will also be studying 'Judaism’ and thinking about ‘How do Jews show their faith?’, comparing this with other faiths in RE. In Science, we will be exploring 'Creature Features' by categorising living things, and finding out about environmental changes and habitats through lots of exciting investigations!

 

PE is on Mondays, with Art and Spanish occurring once every three weeks, so please make sure you have your PE kits in school every week just in case!

 

Homework and spellings are given out every Friday and homework is due in the following Thursday. Your spelling test will be every Friday morning so don't forget to practise! Reading books will be changed every Tuesday (after you have passed your AR quiz) and your green diaries should be written in three times and signed by an adult once per week. 

 

We look forward to an exciting term!!

 

Year 4 Team

Spring 1 Homework

Harry Potter Trip 

 

On Wednesday 6th November, year 4 discovered the film making magic of Harry Potter. They were able to walk in the footsteps of Harry Potter and explore the wonders of the wizarding world. They stepped onto iconic sets like The Great Hall and Diagon Alley, spotted their favourite props from the films and learnt how magical creatures were brought to life on screen. 

 

The children were in awe at the intricately detailed model of Hogwarts Castle, where a Golden Snitch was hidden in the tallest of towers. The trip ended with the visit to the Harry Potter gift shop, where a member of staff praised the children of Queens Academy for their respectfulness and responsibility as they grazed the store. 

October Harvest Assembly

 

On Friday, Year 4 put on a stunning performance for their Harvest Festival production. A spectacular harvest gathering of foods from the children, for the Nuneaton Foodbank, ensured that the stage was filled with items that show thanks for what the children have. These items were centre stage during the children's performance which emphasised the meaning of Harvest and why, as a Christian school, we show our thanks to God for the land that provides our food.

 

The children also raised an awareness of our new partnership with the Homelands school and Orphanage in Uganda. As this is a new partnership the children explained that they would be scouting good ideas for developing our partnership.

 

The children sang songs of praise, explained facts and discussed the meaning of Harvest, infront of their peers... and the Year 4 parents of course! The children were exceptional in their display and were praised by those around them. Father Tom also blessed both the Harvest and the children with his presence. 

 

Well done to all the Year 4 children for the fabulous performance and thank you to everyone that made it happen!
