Year 4 - Remote Learning  

Welcome back to an unusual start to Spring term. We hope that you have had a wonderful Christmas and New Year and we are very sad that we won't be able to welcome you back to school. We hope that this will only be short term and that we will be able to be back in school together soon. We are very proud of all of our school's values which you are showing at this time including determination, resilience, perseverance and optimism. 

We are excited to catch up with you soon.

Mrs Sillitoe and Mr Roberts

Remote Learning Timetable ,

This week's Maths work is based upon Area. In English this week we will be beginning our writing topic about chocolate making. As well as Maths and English, a third lesson will be put on each day for you to complete.  

Weekly Project

Each week, we will set you a new project which you can complete over the week as well as you daily work which will be put onto the website each day. 

‘Brazil'

As part of our new 'Cholcolate' topic, we would like you to do some research about an important country in the chocolate production process. You can learn all about Brazil and the people who live there.

Some ideas of what you could learn about include:

  • Capital city, population, currency, longest river, highest mountain, weather. A factfile about Brazil could be a great start to your learning. 
  • Culture: What sports are associated with Brazil? What do they eat and drink in Brazil? What is Brazilian music like? What is Brazilian dancing like?
  • Famous Brazilians: You could choose a famous Brazilian and create a biography all about them?
  • The Amazon Rainforest
  • Animals of Brazil

Choose something you would really like to learn about which is related to Brazil, and create your own piece of work to share with your teachers and class mates.

Christmas Play 2020

The children performed beautifully in their class scene for the Christmas play. We were very proud of them. We hope you enjoy looking through the photographs. 

Victorian Day

As an introduction to our new topic 'The Victorians', Year 4 took part in a Victorian Day where the children experienced life in a Victorian school. They learnt about how different a Victorian school was to the ones they know today and learnt all about the lessons, foods, jobs and punishments a Victorian child might have experienced. The day included gruel at break time, an inspection by the headmaster, a Victorian style lunch amongt many other activities and tasks.
