This half term we would have been looking at the differences between solids, liquids and gases. Use a variety of everyday items, for example from the bathroom the kitchen, and see if the children can sort them into solid, liquid, gas or a combination of some or all - once the children have sorted their items, ask children to write a definition of a solid, a gas and a liquid with words to describe each one. Take a picture and email your findings.
Why not try a science experiment at home that involves chocolate! Look at the document below. Don’t forget to send photos.
Welcome to the Year 4 class page.
This half term our topic is 'Passport to Europe'. In this topic we will be looking at European countries in Geography, continuing learning about the digestive system and learning to sew in Design and Technology. This half term we will also be taking part in two trips, the first being meeting up with our link school at Burnley Youth Theatre and the second will be visiting Manchester Airport. This is one of the Year 4 experiences on our St Paul's passport.
It is important to continue to develop times table fluency and one way of doing this will be to practice on Times Table Rockstars. This will form part of the weekly homework Year 4 recieves and there is an expectation that they complete a required number of tasks each week. If your child can not complete TTRockstars on a electronic device please let Miss Houghton or Mrs Melling know in plenty of time then a paper copy can be given.
In Year 4 it is important to continue to develop essential skills to help our learning to grow. We encourage reading a range of books throughout the year. Awards are given weekly and termly for children who regularly read at home. This half term it is hoped most children will reach the required number of books in the reading challenge with some children going on to read novels suitable for their age.
Please ensure full P.E. kits are left in school as we will have P.E. on a Monday this half term.
If parents have any concerns or need to discuss any aspect of their child's school life please pop in and see me any time.
Thanks, Miss Houghton.
