ST PAUL'S YEAR 4Welcome back to school

Dear parents and carers, it is without doubt that we are extremely excited to welcome your children back to St. Paul’s!

WE ARE LOOKING FORWARD TO GETTING TO KNOW YOUAnd getting stuck in with lots of exciting new learning!

It is vitally important that we encourage the children to read every day (for at least 10 minutes), as well as practise recalling the times table facts up to 12 x 12. Times tables are particularly important in year four as there is a national multiplication tables check that the children will complete in the Summer term - more information can be found here...

We will be revisiting some of the learning from year 3 to ensure the children have no gaps in their learning or understanding before moving on to the year 4 curriculum.

We appreciate that your children have not been at school for a very long time because of the pandemic and so coming back may carry a series of mixed feelings. Therefore, we will also focus on various PSHE areas such as how to rebuild and maintain friendships.

YEAR 4Autumn term

Our topic for the first part of the Autumn term is: What if you had to climb a mountain? As part of this topic, we will be learning all about the different mountain ranges of the world including the Alps, the Andes and the Kumaon region in the Himalayas.

In Science, the first topic we will be looking at is Sound, focusing on how it is made and how it travels. We will also be carrying out experiments to find patterns linking to pitch and volume.

As excited (or as nervous!) as the children may be to come back, we are fully aware that they will need time to re-adjust back into the school routine and so we will strive to make the transition as smooth and as easy as possible!

OCTOBER 2020Black History Month

As October is Black History Month, year 4 have spent an afternoon studying some famous Britons who are not only extremely talented in their fields of sports, arts and culture but who also are committed to giving back to society. We used the iPads to scan different QR codes which led us to websites, photos and videos. We then used this information to build a fact file about the different famous Britons!

WELLBEINGChildren's Mental Health Week

Now more than ever we need to be looking after our mental health! 1st -7th February was Children's Mental Health Week. We got involved to mark the occasion and to raise money for the charity Place2Be who focus on improving children's mental health.

The theme of this year's Children’s Mental Health Week was Express Yourself.
Expressing yourself is about finding ways to share feelings, thoughts, or ideas, through creativity. This could be through art, music, writing and poetry, dance and drama, photography and film, and doing activities that make you feel good.

Check out how we have expressed ourselves this week!
