Year 4

Welcome to Term 3

This term, Year 4 will be joining Glenda and Horace Pork-Fowler on a scrumptious adventure at Eatem Hall. The greedy hog and the glamorous goose think they are attending a dinner, but will they turn out to be the dinner? In Numeracy, we will continue our multiplication and division journey before moving onto length and perimeter. Make sure you are practising your times tables and use TTRS to support you. Did you know that everything is made from matter? In Science, we will be investigating the changing states of matter. We will be travelling around North America in Geography, focusing on the physical geographical landmarks as well as exploring the human characteristics of the regions.

We look forward to seeing your ‘Passport to Learning’ projects and are excited to see you developing your Minster Muscle ‘Never Give Up’.

End of Term 2

What a busy term! Swans, Peacocks and Macaws have really worked their Minster Muscles this term and have made all Year 4 staff incredibly proud! Not only has this term been full of reflection -from Remembrance Day, to Children in Need- but also appreciation. Through our Christmas Concert, we were able to show just how much we appreciate our loved ones, recognising that the greatest present is the presence of the ones we love.

In numeracy, we developed and applied our times tables and division knowledge. We lit up with excitement in science as we explored the topic of electricity through making and investigating electrical circuits. In RE, we continued to explore the Hindu religion and looked at Gandhi as a great influential figure.  

As we close the doors to Narnia, we also bid farewell to 2022 and welcome new beginnings.

Welcome to Term 2

As we step into the colder weather, we enter the frozen depths of Narnia. We will be exploring and comparing the characters, noticing that some are more delightful than others. In science this term our interests will be sparked as we learn about electricity. We will put our bright ideas to the test as we explore, investigate and experiment. In Term 2, our topic on the Romans fits perfectly into our DT project where we will be making our own Roman-inspired mosaic tiles.

As we continue to embark on our Year 4 learning journey, this term we will be harnessing the Minster Muscle ‘Independence’.

End of Term 1

WOW… and just like that, Term 1 is COMPLETE! We have been motivated learners and strived to be the best we can be with our reading and TTRS. In literacy, we brought to life our set of instructions on how to make a disgusting sandwich by making our very own stomach-churning snack. We explored Mother Nature’s instruments when Forest School became our science classroom and investigated sound through many mediums. We also travelled back in time to when string telephones were a great form of communication. In D&T we have planned and designed incredible playgrounds and are eager to make them at the beginning of next term!

Welcome to Term 1

Welcome back to another exciting new school year!  All the adults in Year 4 are looking forward to getting to know you all and starting our learning journey together.

The year ahead will be filled with lots of new experiences and learning opportunities. This term, we will be exploring our local area ‘Minster’ in our Geography topic, as well as being immersed in Gareth Edwards’ book: The Disgusting Sandwich, during our Literacy lessons. The text is about a hungry badger who follows a beautiful peanut butter sandwich on its journey through a park.

We want the children to be safe, happy and calm, ready to learn, so our aim is to create a nurturing environment that adapts to the needs of every single child in Year 4.
