Welcome to Miss Hunter's Class

Welcome to Year 4! This year we have 29 fantastic children who are eager and ready to learn. Over the school year, this page will be full of the exciting activities the children have been up to. For now, we have added some important dates for your diaries. 

 

Important Dates for your Diary:

  • On a Tuesday the children will visit the school library and will be able to choose a book to take home and enjoy.
  • Every Wednesday Miss Christie and every Friday Miss Martinez will be reading with the children individually so they need a reading book and their home school diary. 
  • Each Thursday, the children will have a weekly swimming session at Southmoor. Children must have swimming costume or shorts and towel. Children will be walking to Southmoor in all weather conditions so please make sure your child also has a coat.
  • Every Friday, the children will have PE.  They will need indoor P.E. kits which includes plain shorts, plan t-shirt and plain black plimsols or trainers.
  • Homework will be set every Friday and needs to be returned on the following Tuesday.
  • Spellings will be set every Tuesday for the children to practise and learn and then they will be tested on the following Tuesday.
  • Every Tuesday the children in Year 4 can take part in a lunchtime football session with Arj. The children will need to have shorts, a t-shirt and suitable footwear for playing outside on the field.

Settling Saxons and Vicious Vikings

Our new topic is an exciting new topic looking into life in Britain during the Anglo Saxon times. We will be looking at how Britain changed due to the invasions of the Angles, Saxons and then the Vikings. Children are reading a fantastic new story called Arthur and the Golden Rope. They have just met the hero of the story Arthur. They know he's a hero, but they're not sure why just yet! Inspired by the book, the children produced some absolutely fantastic advertising videos about Iceland. We definitely have some charismatic children with a future in television here in Y4! 

 

Oliver and the Seawigs 

Year 4 are currently reading a fantastic book called Oliver and the Seawigs. It's a book about a young adventurer named Oliver Crisp and the rather peculiar people he meets on his dangerous adventure to save his parents. As part of the book, there is a very special event called the Night of the Seawigs which takes place at the Hallowed Shallows. The children in Year 4 were gathering lots of items which could be used to make seawigs. We even had a very special judge come and choose a winning seawig, just like in the book. If you haven't read Oliver and the Seawigs, Year 4 definitely recommend it! 

Marvellous Maths!

Year 4 have already started the year of extremely well. They have been making sure they understand the place value of 4 digit numbers. All of the children were using place value counters or base 10 to show that they could make, order and compare 4 digit numbers. It was fabulous to see so many children working well together, great teamwork!
