Blofield Primary School

Year 4

Summer Term 1

Welcome back Class 4!

I hope you all had a lovely Easter holiday and enjoyed being out and about in the sunshine.

 

This half term we will be learning all about -

  • History - Ancient Egyptians  
  • English - a newspaper report on plastic pollution then our own article on deforestation             
  •  - a biography on Hatshepsut and then writing our own on a different pharaoh 
  • Science - Habitats, focusing on deforestation in the Amazon rainforest 
  • Art - looking at colour mixing and the artist Mark Rothko
  • PSHE - healthy bodies
  • Maths  - decimals and money
  • RE - sacrifice
  • Computing - animation

 

PE days are Mondays, Thursdays (tennis) and Fridays. On Monday afternoons the children will be having Mrs Lawrence for PSHE and then CSF PE and on Wednesday afternoons they will have French and Maths with Mme Pandit. Ms Webb will be teaching on a Friday as usual. 

 

Attached are this term's topic web and knowledge organisers for Science and History.  It is really helpful if you could look at the knowledge organisers with your children throughout the term, as it gives you an idea about what they will be learning so you can have some interesting discussions and you also see the expectations for the end of the topic.

 

I am looking forward to seeing everyone tomorrow!

Best wishes, Mrs C😊

 

As part of our History learning about The Silk Road, we explored spices from India and North Africa which would have been traded along the Silk routes. We used some of the spices in making couscous as cross curricular learning in D&T.

Making couscous and exploring spices!

We all had such a fabulous time at Barton Turf. Here are some photos, more to follow when I've found the ipad!

We used branching diagrams to identify invertebrates we found in the woodland habitat and in our dyke dipping. We also found out information about the plants and animals that live in the Broads in clues which we had to find geocaching. The weather was perfect too.

Hello everyone!

 

I'm very glad to be back to school after being ill all last half term. I wanted to thank the children for their cards and kind messages which really cheered me up. I also wanted to say a belated thank you for my generous Christmas gifts - Christmas seems such a long time ago now!

 

This half term our topic is 'Mission - to trade'. We will be learning about the Silk Roads and Early Islamic Civilization and cooking using spices that came from the East over a thousand years ago! 

 

Here you will find the topic web for this half term and knowledge organisers for both History and Science. Please look at these carefully with your child as they contain all the important learning they need to know by the end of the topic. 

 

Forest school will continue on Wednesday mornings and PE will be on Mondays and Fridays as last half term.

Parent/teacher consultations with myself and Miss Webb will be rescheduled soon.

 

I hope you all had a lovely, relaxing (if a bit windy!) half term and I look forward to teaching my lovely class again tomorrow!

 

Best wishes,

Mrs C😊

Hello everyone!

 

Y4 have been busy finding out about Roman rule in Britain. We pretended we were tribal Celts and debated whether to give in to Roman rule or to fight. We also found out about how the Romans broke a deal and how Boudica's rebellion almost succeeded. In science we built on our learning about simple food chains in Y3 to learning about producers and consumers, predators and prey. 

 

We voted in George and Mia as our class council representatives - well done you two!

 

Next week we are going to be making sock puppets as part of D&T week. Please can your child bring in a long sock into school - any size or colour will do! 

 

Thank you and enjoy the weekend!

 

Best wishes,

Mrs C😊

Hi New Year 4!

 

I hope you have all had a fantastic summer holiday.

I am really looking forward to welcoming you all back to school on Monday. Doors open at 8.45 and you can come straight in to the classroom through the junior entrance - staff will be there to direct you!

 

Of course you all know me from last year and we have a few new faces joining our class who we can all welcome too. Ms Masterson will be teaching you on Thursdays and Fridays and Miss Kemp is continuing to be our class TA so the old team is back to teach you once again.

 

Y4 PE days are on Thursday and Friday afternoons so you'll need to bring your PE kit on those days. Remember your art aprons or an old shirt to wear - art will be on a Wednesday.

 

Things are slowly getting back to normal so we are sitting in table groups and not rows and we are no longer in class bubbles.

 

Our first topic is 'Once Upon a Time' and we will be learning all about the Romans in Britain amongst lots of other fun things. 

 

So, see you on Monday morning everyone!

 

Best wishes,

Mrs Conway😊
