Year 4

                   

2020-21

End of year

A big thank you to all pupils for their efforts this year. Well done to you all.

Welcome to year 4. 

Last year saw lots of challenges for us all in many different ways. I hope that this year will be more straight forward. We have lots of interesting topics and activities planned which I hope you will find engaging and exciting. I look forward to seeing you do your best and be confident enough to try anything. Remember, we are all learning!

Should anyone wish to send photos in of home learning then you can email them to me at

year4@stpeter.doncaster.sch.uk  

Many thanks

Mr Wynne

IMPORTANT

Please be aware that we are still having to open windows and doors to create ventilation through the classroom throughout the Winter months. I would advise that pupils are sent to school with enough layers to prevent them from getting cold. This could be in the form off vests, skins or fleeces. I will try to rotate places as much as possible so that the same people are not in the same position for longer than necessary. Thank you in advance for your understanding.

Fusion Series

We took part in the Fusion Series this morning with Will from Active Fusion. We participated in a range of activities where our best scores were recorded against each other and to be compared with other schools.

Some of our thoughts on Sports Week

Workers of the Week Sports Week-Scarlett H-e and Frankie

Y4 Orienteering 18.6.21

We completed our sports week with an orienteering extravaganza this morning. Lots of teamwork was evident as the pupils completed various tasks. They included creating a picture from jigsaw pieces, finding numbers on cones and the letter it corresponded to and finding different symbols. Then they had to find symbols at different points returning to base after each one so that the next person could go. We then moved to explore the area further with races against each team. Again finding points that led us to the next until a code word was found. The pupils really enjoyed the session and could not believe how quickly the time had gone by.

Final Results were as follows

1st Team - 53 points

2nd Team 5 - 49 points

3rd Team 1 - 42 points

4th Team 6 - 40 points

5th Team 2 - 37 points

6th Team 3 - 31 points

Well done to Team 4 of Isla, Jenson, Jude, Caiden and Saria who were the winners.

Y4 French Boules (our version)

Using a hoop as a target each pupil threw 2 boules in turn. Those still in the hoop scored points. After playing a round of small group games pupils were allocated points for a win and a draw. The final results were as follows

1st Jack 19 pts

2nd Analise 18 pts

=3rd Oscar, Louis, Caiden and Ivy 16 pts

 

This was something different but enjoyed by all.

French Boules

Y4 European Football Competition 17.6.21

This morning we played our Euro Competition. Denmark, Ukraine, France and Portugal were the competitors. After playing each other once in a league basis two teams were level on points. It went down to goal difference with Ukraine being one goal better than Portugal. Well done to all pupils who played.

Final standings

1st Ukraine 

2nd Portugal

3rd France

4th Denmark

 

Players of the competition voted by fellow players were Frankie, Isaak and Isaac.

Euros Football

Basketball Shoot Out 17.6.21

We had 5 rounds of shoot out with the winners of each progressing to the winners circle. They were Isaak, Jack, Scarlett H-E (twice), Jude, Analise, Veera, Isaac, Zainah and Molly. Following a tense round of free shooting Isaak came out as the winner. 

Basketball Shoot Out

Y4 Euro Penalty Shoot Out 16.6.21

The shoot out provided us with lots of shocks as some of the favourites left the competition in the early rounds. This left it open for some surprises to the Final. The semis were played between Netherlands (Frankie and Amaarah) and Belgium (Molly and Louis) with Belgium winning 2-1. The second semi final went to sudden death with Spain (Gabriel and Scarlett H-E) against Scotland (Isaak and Ivy). Spain progressed 4-3 after 7 penalties each.

So the final was between Belgium and Spain. Belgium scored both of their penalties putting pressure on Spain who missed their final shot and so BELGIUM (Louis and Molly) were the WINNERS.

 

Well done to all participants.

 

Penalty Shoot Out

Y4 Sports Day  16.6.21

If you don't have anything of that colour then that is not a problem.  Thank you.

Cricket Competition 10th and 11th June

We concluded our cricket unit with a competition. 4 teams payed each other once. Following the games 3 teams had won 2 and lost 1 so we went to runs scored.

Throughout the games there was some great bowling, batting and some fantastic catches.

Well done to all pupils.

Despite the weather not being kind today we still managed a bowls tournament inside for PE. It was a new experience for most but they adapted well. The knockout competitions were won by Esme and then by Harry and Frankie. Learning how to judge the pace of the bowl was tricky at first but by the end the quality of the bowling was very good with balls being left close to the Jack. Well done to you all.

Y4 Tennis Competition 7.5.21

What a great run of sessions we have had. The weather has not affected any and so improvement has been fantastic. We have built up our hand, eye co-ordination and physical stamina through activities like ball balance, ball bounce, movement shuffle and sprint, target shot and tactics to name a few. The competition was run around a series of courts where pupils rotated to play 7 different pupils. There were some fantastic rallies and choice of shots by many pupils. The use of forehand and backhand shots were shown by many pupils. There were a number of games that were won by 1 or 2 points. 

The final results are as follows:

Joint first: Jack and Frankie

Joint second: Isaak, Amaarah and Caiden

Well done to all pupils.

The end of our Basketball sessions culminated in a 6 team competition. Throughout the games it was pleasing to see the improved dribbling, catching and shooting skills shown by all pupils. Veera and Isla were great at catching, Jack was a great allrounder, Isaac dribbled well and both Frankie and Isaak produced some fantastic shots. The competition was close with the winner coming after taking goal difference into consideration. The winners were Team 1. Isla, Veera, Gabriel, Scarlett Mc, and Frankie. Well done to you all.

25.11.20 No Pens Wednesday

So today has been no pens Wednesday. An ideal opportunity to create our own and class mosaics. We started by looking at different mosaics and how they were made. Discovering that the pieces were made mainly from cut stones, smoothed down by rubbing rocks against them. They were 8 to 10mm in size and some even smaller! They called the pieces tesserae. A mortar was used to fix them in place. Wealthy people had more intricate designs.

The stages of making our own mosaics.

Reading books will be sent home on Friday from this week and will need to be returned on the Monday after the weekend. They will then be left for the required 72 hours before we can use them in school. Pupils will then be listened to read in school at least once that week and books will be sent home accordingly.

Year 4 Hockey Competition.

Following weeks of PE and learning different hockey skills we finished with a competition of four teams who played each other twice. As the games progressed the skill level increased as did the game play and positioning of players. The competition was eventually won by the RED team who managed to adjust to the intensity of the competition quickest. They scored the most goals and conceded the fewest. Well done to Frankie, Harry, Nello, Alex, Isaak and Gabriel.

Also, a mention must be given to Annalise for her tenacity in the tackle, Arina's close ball skills, Jenson's array of passing, Isaac B's positioning, Louis's fair play attitude and Jack's dribbles.

Hockey competition

23.10.20 What have we been doing this week?

In English we have written up our diaries which was fun and now we are working on newspaper reports. We have designed ABBA album front covers and they turned out quite well. We used pastels and felt tips for it. In Maths  we enjoyed doing negative numbers. I loved counting in 25's. When we were rounding to the nearest 1,000 I found it a little hard. In PE our topic is jumping and we've been jumping for height and distance. We have learned how to sound proof a room and in Topic we learned about Boudicca and her rebellion and wrote about how people felt before it. We like our Topic.

By Esme, Scarlett H-E and Ivy

What have we done this week?

Over the last week in year 4 we have been learning about rounding to the nearest 10, 100 and 1,000. In PE we have been doing hockey and learning to dribble, pass and shoot. With Dan from Active Fusion we have used our leg strength to push off the ground to make us faster at running. On Monday we drew Celtic people and learned about Boudicca’s rebellion and then we drew people whose lives were changed because of the rebellion. In Science we learned about vibrations and pitch. We learned how sound waves need air to travel, so sound cannot travel in space. In Reciprocal Reading we are looking at Krindlekrax. We found out that Corky and Ruskin are friends. We have been learning about Abba and listening to different songs like Mama Mia, Dancing Queen, Winner Takes It All and Louis’s favourite, Waterloo. In English we watched videos of volcanic eruptions to help with our diary writing to work alongside our book Escape from Pompeii.

Canals and River Trust Visit

Today, we had a visit from Claire from the Canals and River Trust to talk to us about rivers. Through a question and  answer session to begin with the pupils were able to display their knowledge and build upon what they already knew with new information. This led on to the purpose of rivers through time and how they were used to benefit the people who lived near them. From there we discovered the use of canals and how they changed the transport links between places. Onto the practical work which saw the pupils develop a landscape showing the journey of a river from source to mouth. I was pleased by the way the pupils were engaged in the activities and how they were enthusiastic about the tasks.

Hockey Competition

Our hockey unit in PE came to an end this week. We have had a great run of weather and it held out until the end. After developing our stick skills of passing, moving, shooting, dribbling, attack and defense we embarked on our own competition. We were divided into six teams and played five games each. The standard of play was very good with some stand out performers, Anish, Oscar, Kajus, Dorian, Belle and Tayzer. The competition came down to the last game, with Team 6 winning, so leveled on points with Team 2. However, by goal difference Team 6 were crowned the winners.

Well done Team 6

No pens day. 22.1.20

Today, was no pens day so there was a slight change to our day. We began with reading a text and applying emphasis to different words and pausing between different words. It was great to see how the pupils adapted and the range of spoken language used improved from beginning to end. We then completed a science experiment about changing the state of chocolate with us photographing what we did and what we found out. Following this, we read a power point and increased our knowledge of Monet before choosing on of his paintings and recreating it using our finger tips.

Home Learning Autumn Term.

The following is a list of suggested activities for the pupils to complete during the Autumn Term which will help them to develop their understanding of our Topic, Why was the Roman Empire so Powerful? I expect the children to hand in each activity once it has been completed so that work can be displayed. There is no rush to complete all at once or to complete in any order!

1) Draw or paint a picture of Julius Caesar and or Emperor Claudius.

2) Make or draw a Roman ship.

3) Find up to 10 interesting facts about the Roman army.

4) Find out about Boudicca and write a fact file about her.

5) Create a Roman food menu.

6) Find out what types of musical instruments the Romans played. Draw and label them.

7) Create your own mosaic.

8) Find out about Roman Gods and Goddesses. You could draw/paint pictures, include fact files or present it as a booklet.

9) You choose an aspect of the Romans to find out about. It could be the army, weapons, home life, school, gladiators, religion or architecture.

 

I am looking forward to seeing your work and creations!

2018-19

Transition of this year's Y3 into next year's Y4

As part of the transition day the current Y3 class visited Y4. During the day they completed their Sports Day events, made wanted posters, used Top Marks Maths on the Ipad, shared what they know about the Romans and what they would like to find out and created their own mosaic. Look below at some of their work.

Day 5 Volleyball

What you might see as quite an easy game proved anything but. The skill required to get your hands correctly placed to direct the ball over the net was very challenging. Pupils were persistent though, and eventually were able to perform the skill well enough to play some good rallies.

Day 4

Darts and Maths

Today Y4 participated in a session of darts. This included top score, count down, round the board and bulls eye mania. The pupils were very enthusiastic throughout not only showing off their improving skills but also improving their maths skills.

Indoor bowls

Today we were introduced to the sport of indoor bowls. Having split the class into teams we competed in a league. Having played 11 games  each the top two teams were split by one win. The success going to William and Josh. They then had a Grand Final Play off which was won on the last bowl by runners up Patrick and Joel. There was some excellent play and team work. The pupils thoroughly enjoyed the activities. Well done everyone.

How can small actions eventually change the world?

A huge well done and thank you to all of the pupils in Year 4 who designed and presented a number of activity stations that explained their learning from the Spring Term. Following a hectic week of preparations the final outcome showed off the knowledge that they have gained and the enthusiasm they had for the topic content. Included activities were locating major rivers of the world, features that make a river, what makes the world, a focus on the River Nile and Amazon River, conservation, deforestation, identification of animals, finding out the location of endangered species from around the world, information about the Matses Tribe from Peru, picture domino and a slide show of their visit to Potteric Carr Nature Reserve.

May I also thank parents, family and friends who attended, the pupils didn't quite expect the vast numbers that came.
