4JG

Welcome Page

 

Welcome to the class page for 4JG. Please take time to look around the school’s website for key information. Also, make sure that you visit this page as often as possible as it is here that you will be able to view what your child is doing in school each week and every term via the Class Blog that appears below.

Below you will also find important information about your child’s PE slot as well as advice about reading at home.

 

PE

Year 4 will have PE weekly and it is therefore essential that your child has their PE in school everyday. It is also important that each item of PE kit is clearly labelled with your child’s name in case things get lost.

 

Reading at Home

Reading at home is essential for your child to make the progress necessary with their school work. Your child will have a Reading Record Book that they bring home each night. If they read to you or another adult, or to themselves, please sign the Record Book to say this has happened. They will then get credits at school towards a range of reading certificates that they will receive in assembly.

We have had another busy week in 4JG!

 

In Maths we have been using the column method to answer addition questions involving four digit numbers. We then moved onto using the method to solve worded problems.

 

In English we have been writing our own narratives based on the story of Alice in Wonderland.

 

In Science we have continued with our Sound topic. This week we have explored factors which effect the output of sound. ‘Did you know sound travels faster in liquid than in air?’ LP

 

In History we have continued our topic on the Romans, designing posters for our own gladiator schools.

 

In R.E we have been looking at important Jewish items.

In PSHE we have discussed the idea of teamwork; what key elements make a good team and how we can implement this in school.

 

Across the school we have been celebrating Black History Month through researching important figures and writing fact files for our display.

 

We look forward to another busy week next week!

We have had another busy week in 4JG!

 

In Maths we have been looking at Roman numerals – reading and converting them to solve worded problems.

 

In English we have been planning and beginning to write our own narratives based on the story of Alice in Wonderland.

 

In Science we have continued with our Sound topic. This week we have performed with our instruments and evaluated whether they were successful in producing sounds of different volumes and pitch. ‘We spoke about what went well and what we would do next time.’ JO

 

In History we have continued our topic on the Romans, looking at the gladiatorial games. ‘Did you know that gladiators were slaves and criminals?’ BB

 

In R.E we have been looking at the ten commandments in Judaism. We discussed what agreements we have made in school and then moved on to writing our own based on what we think is important in the world. ‘I think people should agree to take care of the environment and animals.’ EH

 

We look forward to another busy week next week!
