Year 4 Learning Autumn Term 1


Year 4 exploded with all the things they had to share, when the Digital Leaders came calling! Rounding and recorders were mentioned along with the work they have been doing on their sensory garden as part of the whole school project. Furthermore, they have been busy programming away and creating a game, in computing lessons, on Scratch. For their sensory gardens they Year 4 hope to make hammocks, remembrance messages, poppy pillows, flowers, graffiti art or bird feeders.


As part of the Mental Health project, Year 4 have been creating feelings poems and making their own feelings dictionaries, to better help them understand the language around emotions.


Newly learnt concepts and skills included never before seen vocabulary and negative numbers (or as the Year 4s called it 'numbers below 0').


There have been so many highlights from their art work to their projects, but when pushed to name a top three, the Year 4s said the highlights were being able to sit by friends, passing their times tables tests and when some of them became Play Leaders.


Well done on all your hard learning Year 4, and well done to the Digital Leader team on their first upload to the school website.
