Welcome to Year 4
The school is using Padlet pages (online portal) to share year group information with families.
Below you will find a link to the Year 4 Padlet page. This will give you information about the Year 4 curriculum, activities and home learning.
Reading Ideas in Year 4
Reading is an important part of all children's development. Here we are proving a list of books, which have previously been sent out to you. Please see below.
What are common exception words?
Common exception words are words where the usual spelling rule doesn't apply. Some of these exception words are used frequently, so children are introduced to common exception words in different year groups. You will find below words lists for Year 1and 2; Year 3 and 4 and lastly Year 5 and 6.
We have made these available for you to see, so you can share these with your children but also allow you to see what types of words children are being asked to know at each stage. The children should be able to read and spell them.
Our visit to Warwick Castle
In Year 4, we began our history topic by gaining first hand evidence at Warwick Castle. We are able to experience and investigate how people lived in Medieval times, how our local area changed during this period of history and focus on the key events of the time.
Design Technology: Design and Make a Christmas Decoration
During the Autumn Term, Year 4 have been learning about the design process. They have worked through the process, all the way from the design brief to the final evaluation. They discussed their ideas and created a design specification so they knew exactly what they needed to include. In a focused practical task, they worked through and evaluated which stiches would be best for their final product. The children then created their design and then worked very hard to sew their final decoration. Please have a look below at their final work.
Designing and Making a Christmas Decoration
Saturday 1st February 2020
Warwick School was filled with excitement this morning, as many young local artists were invited to visit the exhibition. All of the children had been working hard at their schools creating a wide variety of artistic pieces.
Six pupils from year 4 at Telford Junior had been involved in creating their own fabulous pieces of art to put on display, with the support of Mrs Powell and Mrs Arman. James and Rosie from Elm, Ellie and Elizabeth from Lime and Oscar and Heidi from Hazel, had worked very hard and have produced some lovely multi media pieces. We are very proud of all of them as they have not only put in lots of effort but have created some wonderful work.
THE AZTECS ARE COMING...
On Wednesday 12th February, Year 4 were lucky enough to have a visit from Ian and Jo from Mexicolore. It was a magical morning of drama, music, dance and learning huge amounts of facts and information about the Aztecs. The children were able to see video links from London and Mexico showing what life was like, they also learnt how to say words from the Aztec time.
The children learnt how to play an Aztec ball game and how special equipment they used at that time, such as for fighting and cooking. They learnt about what would happen if the children misbehaved!!
We had a wonderful time and learnt alot.
World Book Day
Year 4 had an exciting World book day. The children celebrated by dressing up in some wonderful costumes. Some truly imaginative costumes - well done children (and of course their families).
The children worked on activities linked to the delightful text 'The Day the Crayons Quit' by Oliver Jeffers. They were creating a poem about the colors and also writing a letter from Duncan, answering the crayons concerns.
