Welcome to our Year 4 page. Have a scroll down to find our newsletters and to see what we have been up to as a year group and school!
In preparation for our guitar concert with the Great Orchestra Experiment next week, we were excited to have Sara from the Nottingham Music Service with us to teach a new song that we will sing at the concert. We loved learning Baba Yetu!
We are so proud to have all of our creative homework displayed outside our classroom so that visitors and everyone in school can enjoy seeing what we have made and learn a little bit about our topics. Here are our creations from the Tudor and Sound topics. A huge thank you to all parents and carers who help their child at home with these projects!
This term our topic was The Tudors. Some of the activities we got up to included: learning all about Henry VIII and his wives, creating a Tudor courtroom to debate whether or not to execute Anne Boleyn, making Tudor roses and writing persuasive letters to Henry VIII from Anne Boleyn.
This is our Tudor display with some of our creative homework on show.
We had great fun using our skills in persuasion in our Tudor-style courtroom debate. We were arguing for and against the execution of Anne Boleyn.
We are using the walls in our classrooms to help us give clear and precise feedback to our peers on their work. We give a ‘tick’ comment which picks out something they have done well in their work. We then give some constructive feedback in the ‘arrow’ comment with an idea for improvement, using the prompts on the display to help us. This then helps us to edit and improve our work in response to the feedback we have been given.
Investors in Pupils helps us to improve our behaviour, classroom management, organisation, learning and team-work skills. We set ourselves targets which are relevant to one of these areas and track our own progress towards these. We also have a class target which we update regularly. This term our targets have been about becoming more independent learners.
We had a great time making potato wedges to sell at the Farmer's Market. Thank you to everyone who came and bought some Rise Park produce!
