Year 4

Ancient Greek Day!

The children had a fantastic day on Tuesday during out History Off the Page day based on Ancient Greece. They listened to stories, took part in a range of different art activities, became patients and doctors and put together a thoroughly entertaining festival in the afternoon. A huge thank you to all parent helpers who came in, and to the PSA for funding such an engaging day.
We had a fantastic morning at Metro Bank on Tuesday. The children were given a tour of the bank, including the vault, used the Magic Money Machine, played a game using the safe deposit boxes and even met Metro Man! Well done to all children who were so enthusiastic and thank you to our parent helpers. 


We had a brilliant time visiting Verulamium on Monday to complete our topic about the Romans. The children were able to handle and investigate 2000 year old artefacts left behind from the Roman's time in Britain at the museum before exploring the exhibits and visiting the mosaic.

Carol Service Reminder

Just a brief reminder than on Tuesday 3rd December, children in Y4 will be participating in a carol service at St Albans Cathedral. Family members are welcome to come along and be a part of the congregation. The service takes place from 10.30-11.30. Children will return to school for lunchtime. 

Experiments and Investigations!

On Tuesday afternoon, we had lots of fun in Science investigating solids, liquids and gases. This was the first lesson of our new topic: States of Matter. The children learnt so much by engaging in hands-on practical activities. I wonder if they can tell you about one of the investigations we did and what we found out?

Final Class Assembly Reminders

We are now doing our final rehearsals for our Romans class assembly tomorrow and are really looking forward to performing for you all in the morning!


As it is pyjama day for Children in Need, the children do not need to wear a costume for the assembly. They are more than welcome to wear something related to the Romans if they wish, but this is not a requirement. 

Just like a Roman

This is the song Year 4 will be singing as part of our class assembly on Friday 15th November. Perhaps the children can show you the actions we will be doing alongside the singing?

Year 4 have continued to work really hard in this last week before a well-deserved half term! We have created posters to show off our knowledge of our Science topic, recapped the formal written methods of addition and subtraction and written poems about dragon's from unusual places. 


Wishing you all a great half term break!

Times Tables

This week during maths lessons we have been focusing on consolidating our knowledge of times tables. We have been counting in multiples of 6, 7 and 9. The children have created a pack of flash cards for themselves to practise at home and at school in addition to TT Rockstars. All of the children have been working so hard and improving quickly - well done!

Animals, including Humans

We are now 4 weeks into our first Science topic of Year 4! So far we have learned about the different types of teeth and their functions and made scientific predictions about animal teeth. We have also discussed the human digestive system - I wonder if the children remember all the different parts?

Talk For Writing

This week, Year 3 and 4 have started their first Talk for Writing unit in English lessons. Over the next few weeks, children will be exploring and writing their own discussion texts, ensuring they include both sides of an argument. We used freeze-frames to show how teachers, parents and pupils feel when set a new piece of homework.

First Swimming Lesson

Yesterday, Year 4 had their first swimming lesson at Westminster Lodge. Everyone did brilliantly, especially those who had not been swimming before. I look forward to seeing how they all progress each week and become even more confident.
