Class 6 - Mrs Smith & Mrs Pratt

Autumn 1 - Invasion

Well what a fun term we've had in Year 4!

In maths, we have been developing our place value skills as well as learning to read the time on digital and analogue clocks, using 12 and 24 hours.

Our English work has linked to our Invaders theme, as we have been reading and writing texts such as newspaper reports relating to Viking invasions and raids, job adverts to become a Viking, and non-chronological reports about everyday life.  A Viking even came to visit us in school to teach us all about Viking life!

We have also had a dance instructor in school to help us with our dance lessons, which has been fun learning new dance routines. We loved having our parents and carers in to watch us perform and to join in with us too.

Alongside having these exciting visitors in school, we have also enjoyed our visits to church and our trip to the cinema to watch Sing 2.

Spring - Misty Mountain, Winding River

This term's theme has allowed us learn so much about rivers and mountains and use this as a focus for a lot of our English work. We also had a fantastic day out to Tees Barrage to learn even more about the River Tees, and we did an amazing job at showing off and sharing how much we had learnt in class.

In maths, we have been developing our multiplication and division skills, learning about fractions and decimals, as well as working with money and converting p to £ / £ to p.

We've enjoyed carrying out a range of scientific enquiry activities to solve given problems in science, and also had fun exploring light and shadows.

On the lead up to Easter, we invited parents to join us in class. As always, it is a pleasure to have our parents joining us - we revisited the Easter story then created some impressive Easter artwork.

We have come to the end of yet another year full of achievements, adventures and memories made.

This term, we have been very fortunate to work with a range of sports coaches to help us learn and develop new skills in dance, athletics, gymnastics, basketball and cricket and we have had plenty of fun doing so.

We have also enjoyed our visit to the Gurdwara in Middlesbrough, to further our understanding of Sikhism, and our orienteering/map-reading trip at Hardwick Park.
