Autumn Term 2020

Welcome to Year 4.

The children in Year 4 have settled back into school so well this term, they have loved being back in school and reunited with their friends again!
We have had a busy start back to school life and have already has lots of adventures!
Forest School activities have included designing our very own story stones and using them to tell stories. We have also been busy pruning and cutting back the Forest School area after lots of Summer growth!
We were also challenged to complete a Stem activity – working in groups to design and build the tallest tower, using limited resources. The children worked so hard and had lots of fun using their problem solving skills in this activity.
Our class novel this term is ‘The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane’ by Kate Dicamillo. We have used our imagination to write an alternative chapter to the story, and have been creative in making our own Edward Tulane rabbits from clay.
Our class topic this half term has been the heartfelt story ‘Here We Are’ by Oliver Jeffers. We have loved reading this book and the children engaged so well with the themes of the story. We ended our topic by writing our own notes for living safely and peacefully on planet Earth.

We are excited to see what the next half term brings!
