Welcome to year 4!

Come with us and you’ll be in a world of pure imagination!

This term, Year 4 are going to enter into the magical world of Willy Wonka, finding out the origins of chocolate and how it encompasses the wider world.

To start our topic, the children will create and taste a range of delicious, mouth-watering sweet treats.

Temper Temper Chocolate Company are visiting to show us how to create amazing chocolate goodies!

As part of our Chocolate topic, Year 4 welcomed Temper Temper chocolate company, who taught us how chocolate is made.  Without doubt, the best part of the day was making, tasting and eating our own goodies!  These faces cannot hide the excitement.   Another extraordinary day.

As part of our History learning we will be finding out who first discovered chocolate and where, as well as when the first chocolate bar came to Europe.  We are also going to be looking at Fairtrade and the impact on cocoa bean farmers.

In English we are going to be reading the story of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl.  We aim to find out about imaginary worlds and the creatures that might live within them.  We will be building up to write our own non-chronological reports about Chocolate and its origins from around the world.

In Maths our focus will be around measuring and fractions as well as shape. 

Science Week in Year 4

During Science Week Year 4 have looked at a range of experiments.

Most were linked to our topic on electricity, but we also took part in other science activities.

The children listened attentively during science workshops and were all very excited to share what they had learnt:  lots of new exciting vocabulary, how to carry out a fair test, making predictions and drawing conclusions.

They were all very creative about how they recorded their findings.

One child told another that "Science was the coolest thing ever!”

Homework will be sent out on Thursday and should be returned to school on Tuesday. The homework menu allows children to choose which homework they would like to do each week based on what subject interests them the most.  Please date the menu to show which homework has been completed each week.

Reading Records are to be in school every day whether your child has read or not, this is so we can record any comments that we may have during Guided Reading sessions. Reading books may be changed daily if the Reading Records have been signed by an adult to show a book has been read. All Reading Records are checked on regularly to ensure that children are reading at home.
