Year 4 Archive: 2015-2016

Welcome to Year 4

Staff in Year 4

Teachers - Miss Walker (Y3/4), Miss Greenan and Mrs Wood (4GW)

Support staff - Mrs Anderson (Y3/4), Mrs Pullan (Y3/4) and Mrs Howarth (4GW)

In 3/4SW we have been coming up with our own games in PE and testing them out on each other. We all had a fantastic time and worked really well together. The children's ideas were all really good with some exciting competitive elements. 

A message from Peter H. Reynolds...

 

Mrs Lambert has been talking to the author of the book 'The Dot' and telling him all about 4GW's wonderful assembly.  Peter said that it sounds as though the children were all amazing (which they were) and that they really brought Vashti to life in their drama.

Peter said that he was so happy that his story had inspired the children (which it did) to produce some lovely messages for their assembly and also that it inspired the children to create some super paintings.  He said he couldn't stop smiling!

Mrs Lambert will take pictures of some of the paintings and post them on this site so that Peter can have a look at your work! 

Well done 4GW.

Hindu Temple Visit

 

Classes 3/4 SW and 4GW have had a great time at the Hindu Temple today.

We went to the Hindu Mandir in Burley and were greeted with a very warm and friendly welcome.

We were lucky enough to watch their prayers and the Priest told us lots of information about their faith.

The temple was amazing inside. It was very brightly coloured and even had flashing lights!

We learned about all the different Gods in the temple and how they pray and show respect to each God and one another.

We are looking forward to visiting again next year!

Year 3/4 SW have made bread this week. We learnt about the history of bread, tasted and evaluated existing bread and yesterday we got to make our own bread rolls! We followed the instructions very carefully and our bread rolls were delicious!
3/4 SW visited Eureka this week. We had a fantastic time learning all about how the body works. We also learnt lots about sound and habitats.

Teeth Poster Winners!

Congratulations to Jessica and Bobby who designed the winning posters in our class competition. The posters will be on display at 'My Dentist' on Broad Lane opposite the Globe pub.

World Book Day 2016

 

We really enjoyed the the activities in our World Book Day and Leeds Rhino takeover day.

We shared our favourite books with a partner and read to each other. Our teddies listened carefully too!

We had a great time outside with the Rhinos practising our rugby skills on the rugby inflatable.

We were really proud of the children in year 4. Their behaviour was excellent and they joined in all activities with great enthusiasm.

Year 3/4 had a fantastic day for our Leeds Rhinos take over world book day. We enjoyed reading and sharing our favourite books. We also had dance lessons from a Leeds Rhinos professional. We enjoyed reading the story of Elmer and writing why we were special. 
In year 3/4 SW we have been making bird boxes for our DT topic. This linked in with our science topic of living things and habitats. We designed our boxes, cut out our wood, glued it together, then painted our design.

4GW's Anglo Saxon Day

 

We have had a great introduction to our Anglo Saxon history topic.

We have learned where the Anglo Saxons came from, why they came to Britain and where they settled. 

We have also learned about typical male and female jobs in an Anglo Saxon Village and have had a go at some of them ourselves!

We have weaved, braided and churned our own butter. It has taught us how hard the Anglo Saxons worked every day.
