Silkstone Primary School

A School with Soul

Class Four

 

Welcome to Year 4’s page.

Class 4 will be taught by Mr Simon, with Mrs Toft and Mrs Evans supporting the teacher.

 This term our key topic is The Anglo- Saxons. If children can research this subject at home, I am sure they will find many interesting facts. Further areas of study are highlighted on the Y4 Topic Sheet on our website.

 Our PE days are Wednesday and Friday. Bringing PE kits in on Wednesday morning and leaving them in school for the Friday lesson, will ensure children will always be prepared for the lesson.

Swimming will commence next half term on a Wednesday afternoon. Detail have been sent home regarding kit and transport arrangements.

Ukulele lessons take place on Monday afternoon, and the children are encouraged to take their instruments home to practise.

Spellings are sent home weekly for their regular spelling test.

We encourage the children to read a broad range of books, newspaper and magazines to develop their own love of reading. We have books in the library as well as in the classroom and they children can pick their own books. Some children will read a specific book chosen by the Teacher/TA. The pupils have a reading record in order to log their reading activity.

 Please feel free to come into class if you have any queries.

Printing 

Class 4 have been using mono printing techniques in art. We have been looking at the work of Matisse including his printing and collage pieces.

Science

We have been using thermometers and experimenting with temperature in our Science lessons.

Stagecoach.

 Stagecoach Theatre Company paid a visit to school to teach our children dance and drama skills. The children thoroughly enjoyed their time with the group.

Y4 Family History

These boys have been researching their family history. The children shared the information and artefacts they had found with the class. We heard some fascinating stories about the experiences of their relations.
