Year 4

Welcome to our Year 4 page!

Year 4 have had a jam packed Autumn term, relishing all parts of the curriculum. Look below to see what we have been up to.


In PE, the children have been learning to balance and complete timed indoor athletics challenges.


In Literacy, the children have been planning and writing letters of complaint and story writing.


In RE, Year 4 have been think about the Jewish festival of Sukkot and made their own using materials from the outdoor environment.


In Science, the pupils have been thinking about their digestive system and vibrations and sound. They also made their own electric circuits.


They have also enjoyed investigating the similarities and differences between a variety of plants.


4A even developed their understanding of the different states of matter. The children had lots of fun exploring solids, liquids and gases and even saw Mr Nelson get soaked by a balloon filled with water!


To celebrate Bonfire Night, after leaning about Guy Fawkes and his gunpowder plot, pupils in Year 4 created firework pictures using chalk and a variety of techniques.


As part of Anti-Bullying week, Our anti bullying ambassadors made fantastic presentations to their individual classes on how we can prevent bullying in our school.


During our open evening, 4A was represented by Amelia, Sam and Layla. They did a fantastic job of explain what happens inside 4A!


Rykneld was represented during an all-girls football tournament this term. The girls all played really well and worked well as a team.


And thats not all! Year 4 pupils joined in with the Body Coach for Children in Need, Theye have learnt to play the glockenspiel in music lessons and understood what it means to keep a steady beat when reading music. They are all learning their times tables and in Year 4 and enjoy their time on the IPad practising our skills. 4S have explored the local area and investigated crime as part of their Detectives theme and reported back their findings. At this time of year we also think about the Christingle in RE and the children have learnt what the different parts of the model represent. I think the children and staff will thoroughly deserve the rest for Christmas!
