Spring 1 Week 3 - Aladdin

This week in year 4 we have been learning the story of Aladdin and the Magic Lamp. We have listened to the story, chose the key events and put these into a story board. We then acted out the key events in the form of freeze frames in small groups, which we really enjoyed. We worked together well in teams and used our knowledge of the story to act out the scenes.

Autumn 2 Blog Week 7

Year 4 have had an amazing year so far. The children have impressed their teachers with their fantastic knowledge and skills this term.

The Dragonologists have searched for Dragons using their knowledge of the local habitat and suggested how to train the dangerous creatures. During our computing topic, they have explored a visual programming tool and use it to develop a simple animation of a character linked to the ‘How to train a dragon’ story.

Year 4 have also been focussing on reading and being able to read and spell the common exception words. We have also focused on learning all our times tables in preparation for the Multiplication Tables Check in June. 

As this term comes to an end, we look forward to the exciting activities that we will encounter in the Spring term.

Autumn 2 Week 6 - Christingles

This week in Year 4, the children have been making Christingles and learning about the importance of them to Christians. They have learnt which each part of the Christingle represents and how it is an important part of Advent and Christmas. The children will enjoy eating the fruit on them too, I’m sure!
