Year 4 Information

Please do download our Information Booklet to find out more about the routines and expectations in Year 4. You may also wish to take a look at the Y4 Curriculum Map, which shows you the topics we will be covering in different subjects over the course of the year. Please do talk to us if you would like more information.

 

We are keen for parents to support your children’s learning at home as much as possible. To help you do this, we produce a half-termly information sheet, outlining our main topics and giving suggestions for how you might follow them up at home:

We also produce a Year 4 “News of the Week” bulletin that your child should bring home each Friday.

World Book Day

To celebrate World Book Day on Thursday 7th March, all pupils at Queen Edith dressed up as animals! Look below at some of our lovely photos.

We all linked our English work to the book Welcome by Barroux. Reception children made their own islands inspired by those in the book. Year 1 designed a welcoming place for the monkeys from the story to stay in. Year 4 wrote inner monologues imagining that they were in that situation. Later Years pupils looked at Welcome and also Leaf, The Day War Came, The Island and The Arrival and found out about refugees around the world before writing diary entries, imagining that they were in that situation.

Years 3 and 4 Treasure Chest Cuboids

Children from Year 3 and Year 4 have combined learning maths with our pirate-themed production to produce treasure chests. The 3D shape of a treasure chest is a cuboid, so we cut out a net, then folded and glued the flaps carefully. We decorated our cuboids to look like treasure chests.

 

Year 4

Internal Monologues

For World Book Week, the whole school is reading “Welcome” by Barroux. It is about three polar bears who are separated from their home, and are refused entry onto other animals’ islands. In Year 4, we wrote about what the polar bears were thinking after being rejected for the third time. The children were challenged to write it as an internal monologue, rather than narrating the story. The children excelled at giving an insight into the bears’ emotions. In order to bring their monologues to life, we recorded each child reading their writing. You can find the audio file with your child’s voice on it stored under their table group name.
