P.E. on Tuesdays this half term

Please note that P.E. will take place on Tuesday afternoons in Y4 for this half term. The children should wear their P.E. kit on Tuesdays. Our Y4 class P.E. will still be provided by Sheffield United but it will have a different focus with some extra time spent on PSHE aspects in class, as well as fitness and sports activities outdoors for the usual amount of time. The unit of learning is called ‘The Joy of Movement.’This has kindly been arranged for us by Mrs. Pearson, and we hope the children will enjoy the opportunity.

Year 4 Update

It was so lovely to see lots of smiley faces on Monday after returning from our Easter break.

This week, we have been re-establishing and reinforcing routines and the children have been working hard in lessons and have adapted well.

In maths, we have been continuing with our fractions topic and have been exploring equivalent fractions and mixed number fractions.

In English, we have written a diary entry for one of the key characters in our class text as part of our “Big Write.” We have also been focusing on our grammar and punctuation.

We enjoyed our history lesson on the Romans and it was also lovely to design some Roman mosaics as part of our art work this week.

In science, we are exploring the topic of sound and had some fun with musical instruments whilst completing our investigations.

In PE, we enjoyed our first session with Sheffield United. The children were learning some football skills.

We also had RE, music and ICT with Mrs Coles and Mrs Sadler.

We have had a busy week!

We hope you have a restful weekend. It looks like it will be sunny!

Best wishes,

From the Year 4 team.

INFO: Friday 23rd April – School Photos and PE

On Friday 23rd April, the children will be having their school photographs taken.

Please can the children come to school in their school uniform on Friday, so that they can have their photographs taken. Please can they bring in their PE kits to change into for the afternoon session with the Sheffield United coaches.

Apologies for the oversight following the PE day change and for the late communication.

Thank you for your support.

Best wishes,

The Year 4 team.

PE Update for w/c 19th April

We hope you are having a lovely Easter break!

We have been informed of some exciting changes to our PE lessons for next term!

Coaches from Sheffield United will be teaching PE to year 4 on Friday afternoons.

This means our PE day will move from Monday to Friday. The children will therefore need to come to school in their PE kits on Fridays instead of Mondays from next week onwards.

We hope the children will enjoy their new PE sessions with the coaches.

Apologies for the short notice.

Thank you.

Happy Easter

We have had another busy week in school this week.

We have spent time learning about Living God’s Way in RE and learning about Holy Week and the Triduum. We have spent time making prayers, pictures and displays to represent the Stations of the Cross and enjoyed our Lenten walk across school reflecting at each station.

Thank you to the children for working so hard this term. They are all superstars!! We are very proud of their efforts. Thank you to the parents and carers for being so supportive during this time.

We hope you have a safe, happy and restful Easter.

Take care and God bless from the Year 4 team.

24 Hour Read

Hello,

Please see message below from Mrs Pearson that was sent out via email last week. We will send out additional A3 sheets if needed. We would love to see what the children are reading! Thank you.

As part of our Reading for Pleasure project, we would like all children to take part in a ’24 Hour Read.’ This is an activity for children to do at home where they create a collage or picture to record what they have read over a 24 hour period, both at home and school. They will then bring it back to school to share.
This is not a test! No judgements will be made! The purpose of the activity is to help teachers to get to know more about the children as readers. It is also to encourage children to see themselves as readers, even if they don’t choose to read books. Reading on screens, reading comics, reading whilst gaming, reading instructions, reading street signs, texting, reading food packets, are all examples of a range of valuable reading experiences.
Children will be given a sheet of A3 paper to complete the activity at home. Please return them to the class teacher by Wednesday 31st March so that we can look at them together.
