Year 4 are glad to be back at school and have been working really hard all week. I have been very impressed with everyone's attitude towards their learning. We have been working on subtracting 4-digit numbers by 4-digit numbers in maths and I picked Charlotte and Caron as our stars of the week for their excellent work on subtraction.
Year 4 had lots of fun at their Christmas Party today!
Year 4 have been working hard making Christmas decorations and are looking forward to decorating the classroom for our Christmas party later in the week. 

Year 4 have been enjoying Science Week.

Today we have been investigating reflections using mirrors. Everyone especially enjoyed creating mirror codes and then letting their partner decipher them!

This week Year 4 have been learning about philosophy during our P4C week. We have been thinking about lots of philosophical questions all week.

We gave Calverley Parkside the question: "Can you know what someone is thinking?".


Here are our answers:

This week has flown by and Year 4 have been working hard all week. We have started to study the opening of 'The Iron Man' in English and pick out the language features Ted Hughes used. In Maths we have been learning about place value.


In the afternoons we have been busy recreating Thomas Gainsborough’s painting,  ‘Mr and Mrs Andrews’. We split the painting up and painted a section each before putting the painting back together.

Year 4 have impressed me this week with their attitude towards learning.  In English they have worked hard on their descriptive writing inspired by the short film 'Book of butterflies'. If you would like to watch the short clip with your child at home please use the link below.


Year 4 have now completed illustrating their books inspired by Paula Rego. As you can see they did a great job illustrating the story of the 'Monkey And The Crocodile'.

Year 4 are looking very smart in their new school jumpers and have settled back into school brilliantly. We have enjoyed using our new maths resources and have been retelling the story of The Book of Butterflies in our writing lessons. In art we have started our new topic studying British art and artists. We have produced and have started to illustrate our own books and look forward to sharing our books with you next week.
