Year 4

Croeso I blwyddyn 4!

A big warm welcome back to school to all of our Year 4 pupils and also to Mr Lewis who joins the Year 4 team. It has been a very busy start to the academic year and we have been impressed with the punctuality of pupils returning to school this term.

 

Our Wonderful World

Our first topic is a whole school topic and we are excited to share opportunities with the pupils to find out more information about our wonderful world. As a year group we aim to identify how we can make changes to our local environment and already, our year 4 pupils are beginning to spot potential.

Many of our pupils have identified our climate as one of the possible changes!!

We have began to discuss this and locate countries around the world within different climate zones, and over the coming weeks will compare these climates and what we may find there to our own.

This year’s class elections took place on Friday 11th September. Our Year 4 pupils presented fantastic speeches for the following positions (in each class); Class Councillor, Vice Councillor, Criw Cymraeg, and Eco Warrior.

Year 4 Harvest

Year 4 have had the opportunity to discover colour blending whilst creating our Harvest moons. We learnt abut the importance of Harvest now and how it has changed over the years. We also discussed Fair Trade and its role in Harvesting crops.

Remembrance Day

Year 4 pupils completed a carousel of activities for Remembrance Day. They critically answered the question ‘Should all soldiers be remembered on Remembrance Day?’. They used the skill of colour blending to independently create Remembrance Day art. Year 4 also wrote Haiku or acrostic poems on words associated with Remembrance Day.

What did the Romans Leave Behind?

 

This term, the topic in Year 4 has been ' What did the Romans Leave Behind?'. We started by identifying what we knew about the Romans, and then created a list of questions that we would like to find out. 

 

 

What we know

What we want to know

They built straight roads

What clothes did they wear? What materials?

They conquered many parts of Britain

What are the Roman Numerals?

They wore armour and helmets

Where did they come from?

There was a Roman Empire

What weapons did they use?

They used letters for numbers

What were their houses like?

They built the Colosseum

Did they keep pets?

 

How did they make the armour?

 

What language did they speak?

 

Year 4 pupils then started to find the answers to their questions. We also welcomed our new class pets into Year 4- Pisces elit (Class fish).  Both classes began to learn some Latin phrases that we could use in our everyday speech. 4H found this extremely interesting, as lots of words linked to Languages that are already known, such as Spanish.

Roman Soldier Bootcamp

Thriving Thursdays- To continue our work with the KS2 Wild area, Year 4 pupils carried out a litter pick of the area. As well as this, the pupils filled our flower beds with top soil and helped to create gravel paths in between the beds. Furthermore, Year 4 pupils began designing a pond that would attract wildlife to the area.
