Hello and welcome back after half-term. I hope that you all enjoyed a nice break, and come back to school well rested as our subject focus for this half-term is 1066!
I can promise you all that it is going to be an exciting, fun and gruesome topic, that you are all going to love.
As with all our topics, 1066 incorporates a cross-curricular approach to learning. Thus, it will form the nucleus for all subjects this half term.
As part of this topic the children will have the opportunity to explore local history and identify its links back to 1066! We will also be exploring Norman engineering and the children will have a chance to design their own castles! Year 4 have already made bridges in mathematics during our focus on Brunel, so they will be able to apply their previous learning.
Carrying on from our British Values topic, this term the children will be focusing on other British heroes. Which is really exciting.
Finally, as always, if you do have any worries or concerns, or you're interested in coming into school to see your child's learning. Then please come and see me, as you're always welcome and I hold an open door policy.
Mr. J. Davies.
Hello and welcome to our Year 4 Class Page!
First of all let me thank you for taking the time to read and explore the year 4 class page, I do hope that you have all had a marvellous summer and I know that we will have a fabulous year together.
Our subject focus for this half-term is Burps, Bottoms and Bile - it is a science based topic, however, it incorporates a cross-curricular approach to learning. Thus, it will form the nucleus for all subjects this half term.
As you are already aware the wider school community plays a vital role at St Patrick's and I have already had various parents/ guardians come to me with items they have at home which we can use in school! For this we are so very thankful, as it does make such a difference.
So, if you do have anything what at all could benefit the children's learning, in regards to this topic, then please do come and see me.
Mr. J. Davies
Open wide - let’s take a look inside!
We’re on a voyage of discovery to investigate the busy world inside our bodies! Do you have a toothy grin or a winning smile? We are going to analyse what impact that eating different foods has on our teeth.
Follow a tasty morsel as it makes its way through your digestive system, helped by some mouth-watering saliva! Mmmm!
Don’t forget the importance of good hygiene - at both ends!
And whilst we’re talking business… could you recognise an animal just by its poo?
Let’s work scientifically and bottom this one out, once and for all!
We will make models of the digestive system and use it to persuade others to eat healthily.
Learn how to look after this marvellous belching, squelching, mixture-making machine we call our body.
