Developing Independent Learning in a Caring Environment

Year 4 - Mrs Carpenter

Welcome to Y4C!

In Year 4 our first topic this year is the Vicious Vikings. 

 

We will be reading the text 'How to Train Your Dragon' to learn all about Hiccup and his adventures on the island of Berk and using this to create our own fantastic stories that include lots of exciting narrative features. 

   

                                      

 

We will also be learning all about why the Vikings came to Britain, how Vikings lived in their settlements, what they used the land for and how the beer they drank affected their teeth.

 

We will be carrying out an experiment to see what happens to food when it enters your mouth and the journey it goes through using banana, weetabix and a pair of tights!

 

These are just a few examples of all of the exciting learning that will be taking place.  

 

The fun never ends in Year 4!

 

 

Forest schools apple carving and Dehydration!

In forest school as part of our Science and Outdoor learning we learnt how to carve apples for Halloween and we left them outside to see what will happen to them when they dry out.

Our Dragon Reports

As part of our Topic the children wrote non-chronological reports about different types of dragons. They worked very hard and at the end of the week presented their report to the rest of the class. The children all tried hard to use expression and tone and each presentation was evaluated by their classmates. We think they were all fabulous. We hope you think so too!

Our Visit with Bran and Gilly from White Cross Vets.

As part of our learning in Science Year 4 have learnt all about human teeth and also animal teeth. We invited in Bran and Gilly to tell us all about how dogs teeth are different to human teeth and how they need to be taken care of.  Gilly showed us some amazing pictures and Bran showed us how she got her teeth cleaned using sausage toothpaste which she loved!  

Rockstar Times Tables

 

As part of our learning in Maths Year 4 have become Rockstars to help with their times tables.

The link to these is below.  Each child has been given a username and password that is personal to them and the tables that they can make progress with have been added to their account so they can have fun and learn at the same time by competing with others in their class or year group. 

So the dudes and dudettes in 4C can have fun and get better at their tables! :)
