Year 4

Welcome to Year 4!


Miss Musto and Mrs Moore welcome you to your new class and we look forward to working with you. You will also have the opportunity to work with Mrs McAleer and Miss Goodwin this year too.


This half term our theme is 'Can the Earth shake, rattle and roll?' and we have some exciting learning opportunities to explore within this.


Don't forget to practise those times tables at home in preparation for our weekly '99 club'.


Has anyone got any exciting class news to share?

In Year 4 we have been working hard on our problem solving skills. Here we are looking at some facts about the Victorians and working in teams to use different mathematical operations to find the answers to each problem. It was quite challenging as sometimes there were several steps to each problem and we had to work collaboratively to trace back to the first bit of information and then follow it through to the solution.

In year 4 this week we have been looking at the art of persuasion! We held a class debate about whether Mrs Murphy should allow sweets to be eaten in class. At first we all thought it was a fantastic idea but we soon realised that there were some negative sides to such a proposal and agreed that there were reasons both for and against. We also learned some techniques about how to persuade. We put these ideas into practise and tried them out on in each other in small drama activities. We really enjoyed learning about how to be persuasive and plan to put these new skills to use as soon as possible!

In Year 4 we have been learning about the importance of being eloquent and truthful. We have learned that not only is it important to speak truthfully about ourselves and others, it is also important that we speak truthfully about God. We looked at the Pentecost story in the Bible that helped us to understand these virtues. This story tells us about how the disciples received the gift of the Holy Spirit and the courage to go out into the world and tell everyone the truth about Jesus. We also looked at Peter’s message to the crowd and learned that Jesus came into the world to save everyone because he loves us s o much and we are very precious to Him.
