Welcome to Year Four's class page!
Hello, I am Mr Hayward the year 4 Class Teacher. School is a little different to normal at the moment but we are working hard to ensure we are still learning at our full potential.
We are currently composing a version of the story 'Voices in the Park' by Anthony Brown. We have been using a new sentence stacking approach to develop our writing style. Our recent spelling patterns have included homophones and various prefixes, all of these can seen via Spelling Shed, where there are a range of activities to supplement the learning. In Vipers we have been reading 'The Firework Maker's Daughter' which we have really enjoyed. And in Mathematics we have been looking at Place Value, to get a really secure understanding of number.
During afternoon sessions we have been looking at Rock music and we are learning to play 'All Along the Watchtower' by Jimi Hendrix on our ukuleles. We are studying the effectiveness and techniques of 'Pop Art' in our art sessions. We will be looking at the use of colour in some of Andy Warhol's pieces. In Humanities we are studying the Romans as Invaders to Britain. In science we have been looking at sound, and will soon be completing an investigation to test how sound waves travel. And in RE we have been studying Judaism, we will be looking at the Holy Book which is 'The Torah'.
