Year 4 have their PE on Monday and Thursday. Children should come into school wearing their PE kit to ensure they can get maximum time within their PE lessons.

For PE, children should wear shorts, leggings or jogging bottoms that are plain and dark in colour - dark blue, black or grey. They should not have large logos on and hoodies should not be worn. Every child is given one coloured PE t-shirt when they start the school; subsequent PE t-shirts need to be purchased. The colour of the t-shirt represents the colour of the House every child is placed in: Cheng Ho (green), Estervanico (yellow), Sir Francis Drake (blue) and Louise Boyd (red).

 Daily class life

Mathematics Reasoning Morning

 Our maths reasoning morning focused on geometry and measurement. We had a fantastic morning creating shapes out of clay, drawing giant shapes in the playground and learning all about area and perimeter. 






Our science topic this term is sound. We have been learning all about how sounds are created, how we hear sounds and how sound travels. We took part in a sound survey to explore sounds around the school, experimented with clanger hangers and created our own guitar cups. 



Design & Technology

Our D&T topic this term is pavilions. We have been learning about different strong shapes used in building design, as well as the purpose of pavilions. 




Home learning

A ginormous well done to those children who have completed this terms home learning. The pavilions and diary entries look terrific on display and it is clear that a lot of effort was put in at home. Well done Year 4!
