Class 4

Welcome to Class 4!


What have the Romans ever done for us?!

Join us on a tour of Roman Britain this term; help us find out how, and why, they came to Britain in the first place, what the natives thought of it, and how they affected the environment and way of life; aspects of which can still be seen today!

 

Some great places to visit this term if you're short on ideas to help with our topic:

-Corinium Museum- Cirencester.

-Roman Baths Museum- Bath.

-Chedworth Roman Villa- Chedworth.

-Great Witcombe Roman Villa- Gloucester.

-Cirencester Roman Amphitheatre- Cirencester.

 

If you're at the library, try checking out these books on the Romans and Saxons:

-The Time-Travelling Cat and the Roman Eagle- Julia Jarman.

-Roman Invasion- Jim Eldridge.

-Horrible Histories; Rotten Romans- Terry Deary.

-Beowulf- Michael Morpurgo.

As requested, the statutory word lists for Year 3/4 and Year 5/6 to have a look at over the summer!

We have been completing fact-files on Isca Augusta, the Roman foretress at Caerleon. Here are three from Jesper, Izzy and Milo

Week 2 Homework- with hyperlinks!

Year Four, by Year Four!

Excited by the prospect of a new website, the class were desperate to tell you all about what we get up to in here! We've all written information texts about Year Four, and we'd love to share some paragraphs with you!

Fantastic Four!

Welcome to a special class (Year Four), a busy class with lots of fun activities. In this piece of writing, you will learn about what we do and why we're all so amazing. It is very fun, we have lots of visitors, trips and great topics- and we are always good (well, most of the time!).

 

Teachers

Our teacher (Mr Blake) is oh so cheeky, but also kind (most of the time!). Sometimes, he is strict but does, of course have a heart as well. Also, he allows us to have iPlayer at wet play. We luckily have Mrs Brooks, who helps us with our work when we are stuck. In French and Art we have Mrs Lee. At the moment, we are making stop-motion animations and designing zoos in French.

 

Magical Maths

In Year Four, I find the Maths a little bit hard (but that's good). We have been using negative (numbers below zero) and positive numbers (numbers above zero) to solve problems. While we were working with negatives and positives, we have been making number lines. You might have heard of the 3 Chilli Challenge; it's how hard your questions are. We have also done bar charts, some of which go up in more than ones! Every Friday, we do a times tables test and there are forty questions. To move up, you need to get 38, 39 or 40 in five minutes.

 

Our lovely children

The kids try their hardest. When struggling, they always persevere. They always ask a teacher before doing anything and are friendly to and share with everyone! Some of our students are very funny, and come out with hilarious comments, such as 'People would like to look at our website, because we are amazing like John Cena!' and 'Year Four feels like Year Four because it is Year Four!'

 

Terrific Topic

In Topic, in Year Four, we are doing 'Around the World in Eighty Days' (it is really interesting). When we're talking about that, we have to write and find out about different countries in our Learning Journals. For our stop-motion animations we had to make a playscript so that when we are creating it, we know what to say. We used a website called 'Pivot Stick' for a starter. On Pivot, we make the man do the YMCA! In Art, we had to create our own backgrounds and we worked in partners to make sure we had the right places. 

 

We hope you've enjoyed finding out a little bit about Year Four! Stay tuned for more information soon!

Mamma Mia!

Inspired by the music of Swedish band ABBA, Year Four have been performing their own version! Have a listen and see if you can pick out some of our musical talents, such as ukuleles, recorders, clarinets and guitars!

Stop-motion Column Addition

As we've been using Base-10 to practise our column addition and subtraction, while we were practising with Zu3D (more to come from that soon), Mr Blake made a video explaining how to add! Can you talk through this video with people at home?
