Year 4 Blog

Very exciting first week back!

We have played lots of math games and the children have loved the art and writing we have done based on the book ‘Tuesday.’

  • Easter Hat Parade

    We’ve had great fun for Easter with a bonnet parade walking around the school, an egg hunt to find letters and make words, and lots more fun activities.


  • Art based on poems

    We learnt the poem Trees on Parade by Valarie Bloom and used pastels to create some art work based on the poem.

  • Jan 18th – Year 4 home learning

    Goblins The Magic Goblin

    Year 4 have been working hard to create an ultimate guide to goblins.


  • Home Learning

    It has been another few weeks of fantastic dedication from Year 4.  Well done everyone, keep up all the good work.  Your Viking projects are looking great and we continue to love seeing what you’ve been getting up to with your family.

  • Year 4 at home

    Year 4 have continued to work hard at home.  It was Florence Nightingale’s birthday recently and so they have been researching her life and work, made lanterns and even made silhouette drawings. They have learned all about VE Day and decorated their homes for the celebrations. Whether it is the home learning set work, jobs at home or just having family time together, the children continue to shine.  Keep it up!


  • Exciting projects!

    Year 4 have been extremely busy working on a range of projects including researching the history of the NHS, making their own instruments and then composing a piece of music, using their instruments to accompany a favourite short story.  They have also been making birthday cards and posters for Captain Tom and recreating famous pictures.  We are all so proud of you.


  • Year 4 at home

    Wow Year 4!  You have all been so busy at home on school work, learning new life skills and spending quality time with your family.  We are all so proud of you and love the updates you are sending in.  Look at the pictures to see what your friends have been getting up to.  We can’t wait to see what else you get up to over the next couple of weeks.


  • World Book Week

    Last week was World Book Week and we had a great time doing a range of activities and lots of reading! We read the book ‘Tin Forest’ and we worked in small groups to produce a wonderful whole-class poem about two contrasting scenes in the book. We also made pictures based on these scenes using a range of resources. They are amazing! We enjoyed dressing in our PJs for World Book Day and the week even inspired some members of the class to write their own book!

  • Handball with Watford Football Community Trust

    We had a great practical session learning the skills of handball and then enjoyed a classroom based session on healthy eating and the eat well plate.
