Willow Class Year 4 Term 2 2019

This term we have been looking at The Firebird in depth, a Russian story about Prince Ivan and his quest to find and capture the Firebird.  This has been our introduction to fronted adverbials and we’ve taken the opportunity to refresh our knowledge of several other phrase and word types. We’ve just finished off with some persuasive writing trying to convince Grey Wolf whether he should continue to help Ivan, who has repeatedly ignored his advice throughout the story! Finally we’ve looked at instructions for our final Big Write of 2019 as we wrote about how to put on a Nativity play. This term in maths we have had a focus on multiplication and learning our times tables, though we have also finished off by looking at perimeter and measurement. We have also enjoyed looking at different European cities and the features of their areas. It has been very interesting discussing the effects that humans have on the landscape around them in this context. Particular highlights of this term have been our trips to see a show all about sound and the whole school trip to the Hippodrome for the pantomime – described as ‘The Best Thing Ever!’

Willow Class (Year 4) Term 6

It has been a fantastic term in Willow Class! We started the term with a focus on sports and had a day at Bath University Sports Village trying out some new activities. We started with volleyball and moved on to long jump, judo and even trampoline. The instructors were all great and the children really enjoyed trying out some new things. We’ve also had teams from year 4 go to the Bristol Chess in Schools area final as well as take part in a GCC schools kwik cricket competition. We managed to come 5th at the chess with our team of four really impressing the chess masters organising and although we didn’t manage to progress in the cricket everyone had fun giving it a try. In class we have been focusing on shape and coordinates in maths and have really enjoyed looking at the Story of Tutankhamun for Literacy. Many members of the class also really enjoyed supporting the year 6 production of Macbeth in the choir.

WILLOW CLASS – YEAR 4 TERM 4 2019

In Willow class we have been focusing on a wishing tale, ‘The Edge of the World’. The children have learned the story and looked at punctuating speech in their own stories. There were lots of fabulous ideas for people searching for things and meeting many weird and wonderful creatures and people along the way.  In maths we have mainly focused on fractions and decimals but also looked at shapes that tessellate during maths and art week. We made patterns out of several different shapes as well as creating our own irregular shapes that tessellated perfectly; we even made a tessellation out of ourselves! We were inspired by the work of M.C. Escher and have been looking at all the shapes he drew along the way to creating his wonderful, impossible pictures. In RE we have been studying why Christians call the day Jesus died ‘Good Friday’ and even performed our own drama about the empty tomb at the school Easter service. Congratulations to the whole class for taking part.
