Year 4

Teacher: Mrs Johnson & Mrs Marriott
Teaching Assistant: Miss Little
In Year 4, we are a hard working class who always try our best at all times. We enjoy sharing our ideas and showing what we have learnt through practical activities as well as more formal written tasks.

Throughout the year we base our learning around a topic.
The three topics for the year and the linked texts are:
Chocolate and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory,
Recycling and The Iron Man,
What a Wonderful World and Tales Told in Tents and Mouse, Bird, Snake, Wolf.

As Year 4 is such a key year, we are encouraged to be responsible for our own learning and behaviour. Our key rule is 'Respect' - for ourselves, our classmates, adults in the school, equipment and our class and school environment.

Our teachers hope that by the end of the year we will be confident, independent and enthusiastic learners, ready to face the challenges and fun in Year 5.

In Science today, year 4 were exploring the properties of gas.

We had lots of fun trying to squeeze bottles with the lids still on and then realised when we took the lids off the air could escape.

Ask your child what blowing up the balloons taught us!!
