30.09.15. Year 4 have been learning about scaly, ferocious, flying beasts…DRAGONS! We have read the ‘Snow Dragon’ story which we have really enjoyed and then created alternative dragons.


After collecting natural materials and making a Forest Dragon collage, most of us have chosen to use this character in our story. However, some of us have changed the Snow Dragon into a Rainbow Dragon, Amethyst Dragon and even a Glass Dragon!


Here are some pictures of us foraging for dragon materials and then creating our dragon collages.

We have also been learning how to direct a key character in our story, Tuft, using the eight points of a compass and have also learnt how to identify the human and physical features that he may have spotted on his journey.


In maths, we are working hard to use formal methods to add and subtract and will be solving two-step problems using these operations soon.

24.11.15. In year 4, we have been learning about concrete mathematics to deepen our understanding and knowledge of numbers. It has helped us in our addition. Click on the film link to the right to watch a video that Miss Goldie and Miss Vaughan made.


This will help to show how we used Dienes to help us.  

After using Dienes to understand addition further, we then had to show our calculation in our books using pictures for ‘Real Maths’ and numbers in our ‘Maths Story’.


Miss Goldie and Miss Vaughan made another video, this time to demonstrate how we do this.

18.01.16. This term, Year 4 have started to use their new Read Write Inc year 4 spelling booklets. This means that as well as the overarching termly spellings that are sent home, they will also be learning new spelling patterns in school.


The children have one booklet that is kept in school and a small log book which should come home with them and be returned back into school daily. During each unit, the children will choose 5 or 6 words to log and learn. These will be words that they find difficult to spell.


The children should then take home their blue log books to learn their spellings for that specific unit. Some children misplaced their log books from last year, so we will also be logging the chosen words in the learning diaries or on paper to bring home.


When we start the next unit, we begin with a speed spell where the children are tested on the most difficult words from the previous unit.

25.01.16. This term we have been continuing with the concrete, pictorial and abstract approach to Maths, using it to aid our understanding of division.


Take a look at Miss Goldie and 2 members of 4B demonstrating how this can be done. You could even continue the learning at home for a deeper understanding!

13.04.16.  Last term Year 4 wrote some fantastic free verse poetry inspired by Michael Rosen's "The seagulls think we live at the seaside".


They included some incredible metaphors, similes and personification when creating their own animal and habitat version of the poem. A selection of poems were sent to Michael Rosen and here is what he had to say about them…
