Its the end of Spring 1 term 😊 Let’s see what’s been happening in Y4…………………….

The first part of our Spring Term has shown the children building their key skills of independence, resilience, adaptability, confidence and perseverance - the Year 4 team could not be prouder.

During our Writing lessons, the children participated in many creative lessons. They became children story tellers, creating their own Stinky Men stories based on the fairy tale ‘The Gingerbread man.’ The children have explored many Arabian legend stories, based on our class book for this term: ‘A Hundred and One Arabian nights,’ writing their final piece by adapting the classic, Aladdin.

In Reading, we have looked at many stories from ‘A Hundred and One Arabian nights’ and focused on our skills of inference and sequencing. The children have really enjoyed this topic and it gets them excited for their upcoming History Unit, Early Islamic Civilisation.

In maths, children began to develop their knowledge of timetables and division facts, a unit which has been continued outside of school as they have also been practicing their timetables and completing in battles on TTRS between classes. Please encourage your child to log on to Times Tables Rockstars everyday to practice this key skill.

Its week 4 😊 Let’s see what’s been happening in Y4…………………….

We love to problem solve in Y4. We have been using our knowledge of factor pairs to explore the following problem:

 

Mr Sexton has 36 children in his PE class. He wants to put them in equal groups, how many children could he have in each group?

 

To help use solve this problem, we worked systematically and used counters to help us investigate.

PTA Sponsor Snowflake Appeal at Sheffield Children's Hospital

High Hazels Academy PTA made an amazing gesture in December and sponsored a snowflake at Sheffield Children’s Hospital.

Over the past seven years, the award-winning snowflake display has raised over £1m for Sheffield Children’s Hospital!

In return for pledging to raise funds, the PTA sees their snowflake sparkle on the Sheffield Children’s Hospital building, with an attached name tag recognising the contribution for all to see.

The initiative brings people together with a shared goal to build a better future for the staff, patients, and their families at Sheffield Children’s Hospital.

Its week 3 😊 Let’s see what’s been happening in Y4…………………….

Y4 have been making the most of the clubs on offer this half term. In science club we have been learning about famous engineers and developing our problem solving and team working skills. Last week we were challenged to make a bridge that could support three cartons of beans. Happily, everyone succeeded - just! This week we have tried to create tall structures inspired by the Eiffel Tower. We had so much fun and learnt a lot from the structures that worked well as well as the structures that didn't work well. It's not too late to sign up to a club. There are still spaces available in Monday's computing and karate club and Thursday's sports and science club. 

Its week 3 😊 Let’s see what’s been happening in Y4…………………….
