YEAR 4C

ST JOSEPHINE BAKHITA

Hello and welcome to Year 4C class page!

My name is Mrs Clinch and I am one of the Year 4 class teachers for this year! We are extremely lucky to have Mrs Moore in our class with us as our teaching assistant! 

We are both really looking forward to welcoming your children into our classroom and getting to know them all throughout the exciting year we have ahead of us! 

Throughout this page, we will keep you updated on everything we get up to in class and what our expectations are for the year ahead! 

If you ever have any questions or queries, please don't hesitate to send in a note or phone up the office and I will call you back. Alternatively please email

Year4C@stpetersrc.rochdale.sch.uk

I will do my best to get back to you as soon as possible.

Please can we remind you that we are a nut free school. Please do NOT send your child to school with anything that contains nuts, This includes products that say, 'May Contain Nuts'. Your child will not be able to eat any of these products on the school premises

Key Information

 Please send your child to school every day with a water bottle.

Homework will be given out on a Monday and handed in on a Friday. Spelling tests will be given on a Friday.

 Reading books will be given out each week  on a  Monday and we ask you to return them on a Friday. We will not be issuing Reading record books to any children but staff will keep a record of the books read by your child. You may also like to do this at home.
The returned reading books will be kept in ‘class quarantine areas’ for 72 hours before being given out again, to help minimise any possible virus transmission. 

Please only send your child's reading packet to school on a Monday and a Friday.

Children should read every night  (even if it is one page).

If your child needs additional reading material then

Oxford Owl is a fantastic site, on which you can access lots of reading books, just like the ones we send home from school. They are all colour banded, just like the ones we have in school, so the children will be familiar with them.

 PE lessons are on Friday afternoon. Due to the current situation, PE sessions will be taken outside. Please ensure that your child has the appropriate clothing in their PE Bag - Tracksuit bottoms and a jumper. Mr Lord has also asked for the children to have a spare pair of socks in their PE kit bag. The children will also need to be sent into school with a warm coat, with a hood. 

 

End of Year 4 Expectations

 

Autumn 2

Circuits

The children have been making electrical circuits using wires, batteries, bulbs and motors. 

Design Technology

 Today we went outside to build our Egyptian Shadufs. We gathered all the materials we needed in the school grounds and then we worked in groups to build it. We had to make lots of adjustments to make it balanced and we had to persevere when we had a problem. 

We did a great job and all of our shadufs could take water from the water bowl. 

Armistice day

Today we spent the day learning about Armistice day. We began the day with an assembly all about Remembrance. We then completed a reading comprehension about War and then we read the poem "In Flander's Field"

We performed the poem and analysed the features of it. We then went on to create pictures from the war and we then placed our poems over the top of our pictures. 

We were very respectful when doing our 2 minutes silence and all agreed how we should all remember the sacrifice of those who have died or been injured for our freedom. 

Egyptians

Today we have been learning about Egyptian Shadufs. We found out why they were important for farming in Ancient Egypt. We looked at how they were made and then created a prototype in readiness for making a large one outside next week.

Well what a great first half term we have had!

We have been so busy in class. We have been learning to write using the Jane Considine "Write stuff" approach. Initially we found it quite demanding but now we are using much better vocabulary and writing more interesting sentences. We have been reading and enjoying Roald Dahl's BFG and in Religion we have studied the family tree of Jesus. We have learned all about St Josephine Bakhita.

In Maths we have covered place value and addition and subtraction of 4 digit numbers and in topic work we have been studying ancient Egypt. We have made clay models and printed using heiroglphics. We have carried out research on Egypt and made our own papyrus paper and used it to create maps of Egypt.

We have worked really hard and have earned a good half term rest.
