Year 4

Welcome to Year 4

Come and see what we have

been learning about!

Botwell Green Library Visit

Year 4 had an exciting experience visiting Botwell Green Library!  We met the librarian, Amy, who explained how to borrow reading books, audio books, and even balls!  She then read a captivating Chinese folk tale, illustrating how reading for pleasure can transport us to new worlds. Afterwards, we enjoyed a fun game where we searched for fiction and non-fiction books, learning all about how the library is organised. Finally, we finished off by having some quiet time reading! Many of us are eager to join the library with our parents and looking forward to visiting again!

Writing Workshop

On Tuesday, year 4 were delighted to have a writing workshop led by the author, Cliff McNish. During the session, the children wrote about travelling to an imaginary world through a magical gateway. Cliff inspired the children to use their senses to create vivid descriptions. The session was extremely enriching, as the children were captivated by Cliff's enthusiasm and passion for storytelling.

Cultural Week

During Cultural Week, Year 4 had a wonderful experience exploring Africa! Thank you to the parents who joined us in sharing insights about Somalia and a traditional dance and captivating drum performance. Year 4 also had the opportunity to learn about African clothing, homes and animals through the creation of beautiful artwork. It was a week filled with both educational and enjoyable activities, contributing to a well-rounded cultural learning experience for our pupils.

 

Dental Workshop

On Tuesday October 31st , Year 4 had an exciting workshop from an NHS dentist, who spoke to the children about their oral hygiene. The children learnt about how much sugar is contained in different foods, making healthy choices for their snacks and meals, and the impact of a high sugar diet on teeth. The session also included hands-on practice on how to brush their teeth using interactive models, and the children were shown the consequences of not managing to do so!

They also had the opportunity to have their questions answered.

Ufton Court

This week, Year 4 had an amazing opportunity to learn more about the Romans on their  trip to Ufton Court! Throughout the day, the children were able to experience what it was like to be a Roman soldier training for battle, master their skills in threading and spinning wool to make warm clothing, discover how to spark a fire with flint stones and learn how to build a wooden fence using bamboo sticks and a specific type of weaving technique. The children were also able to explore and investigate various artefacts used during Roman Britain, some of which are still around today, like soap, notebooks and a colander!

Beep Beep Day!

Year 4 had an exciting time during Beep Beep Day! Higgins visited the school and engaged with the children, providing valuable lessons on road safety. The students gained knowledge about various types of crossings, safe road crossing procedures, and the potential risks involved. Additionally, Year 4 had the chance to sit in a lorry and understand the hazards pedestrians face when near different types of vehicles.
