Chatteris Library Visit
Year 4 had a lovely trip to the library yesterday before the Summer Reading Challenge begins again. The children were captivated with the amount of books and other resources at their fingertips for free. They listened well, worked as a team to navigate the different sections of the library and overall had a wonderful time with a passion for reading and finding new books.
Lion Learners Day
Year 4 has enjoyed Lion Learners visiting on Thursday with their wonderful animals to introduce our topic: Living Things.
We have met many different animal from hissing cockroaches to rats to ghekkos and skinks.
The children learnt loads of amazing facts and had brilliant knowledge that they shared too.
A lot of animals have been rescued including Bolt the tortoise who was found in a park and fixed by a vet before being rehomed.
Year 4 were amazing and were all brave and caring whilst meeting the animals - well done for a lovely day!
Year 4 have enjoyed the sunshine this week by creating alpana designs using chalk. They have worked hard and they look brilliant!
World Book Day
Year 4 have enjoyed a wonderful World Book Day. We have indulged with hot chocolate and a treasured book; watched live events with authors reading parts from their favourite stories; created stories, comic strips and front covers and designed our very own National Book Token. They have all looked fantastic and been hard at work - well done Year 4!
Here are the photos from the Year 4 children who stayed at school during the Burwell residential trip. They have been amazing artists with their silk paintings and creative settings in a box. We were blown away and now their masterpieces are proudly on display - well done!
Day 3 and we are on our way back to Glebelands!
We have had another wonderful morning exploring the local village and learning lots of information about the Fens. We have then played a great team game called Burwell Fox and some children were better at going unseen (and therefore have less stamps!) than others. They have been amazing and it has been a super experience for everybody. See you all very soon!
Day 2 of our fantastic trip! We have created our own TV broadcast, used enamelling techniques to create keyrings and made sickeningly smelly cocktails. The children have then enjoyed a movie night watching their TV performances with snacks. They are being amazing!
Today has been wonderful with Year 4. We have explored the grounds by playing the Snail Game and orientating with a map. We have looked at the TV studio and have prepared for the recording tomorrow. We have enjoyed two hot meals and are now snuggled up in bed ready for a long, fun day tomorrow!
Welcome back to the spring term in Year 4. Our new topic is called Living Together which is focussed on The Fens and its history and geographical features. We do, of course, also have our residential trip to Burwell to look forward to.
We would like to remind everyone that it is important to have a full PE kit in school for lessons on Wednesdays and Thursdays which should include long jogging bottoms or leggings now that the weather is chilly. Earrings must be removed for all lessons.
Watch this space to see some great work as the term progresses!
We have had a great Ancient Egyptian Day in Year 4 today. There have been lots of important tasks to prepare for Pharaoh Tutankhamun's burial. They have done an amazing job!
Here we are already at the end of our first half term! The children have been working hard to show resilience, respect, team work and good learning behaviour. They are really enjoying our topic on Ancient Egypt and have produced some great homework and work in school to show all that they have learnt. They have been working well in PSHE to become better at conflict resolution and thinking about the importance of friends and family.
In Science, we have begun to explore States of Matter and carried out fair tests to find out about solids, liquids and gases.
We have been working hard in Maths to work together to solve problems too! Our handwriting and presentation is improving.
Well done to all of the children who are reading daily and bringing in their books and reading cards.
Welcome to Year 4
We are so pleased to welcome everyone back to school. We have started the year with a beautiful book called The Promise which provides us with so many opportunities to look at our natural environment and appreciate the world around us. For the first couple of weeks will be very much focussing on getting to know each other, building positive relationships and good team work and setting the expectations for the year ahead.
We will be having one morning break and the children may bring in a healthy snack if they wish to. They should always have a water bottle every day.
Our PE lessons are on Wednesdays and Thursdays and all children should have an indoor and outdoor PE kit on those days. Earrings must not be worn and so children should be able to remove them independently or not wear them on PE days.
Our first topic will be on The Ancient Egyptians and as an entry point we will be having an Egyptian day in school very soon. We will be providing further information about this exciting event very soon.
We look forward to a great year!
The Year 4 Team
