Life in Year 4
Welcome to Year 4! Year 4 is a year of fantastic growth- both academically and personally. Children in Year 4 have settled into the routines of KS2 and continue to build upon their stamina, knowledge and understanding. Children in Year 4 will explore exciting topics to motivate and inspire their learning, such as The Tudors, The Romans, The Victorians and Inventors and Inventions.
In Year 4 the children will also complete a national multiplication checker in June. It is an important year to embed their times table knowledge and improve their speed by playing TT Rockstars.

WOW Moments 2023-24
Year 3 and 4 Paper Aeroplane Competition: In order to raise money for our school trips later this year, our key stage took part in a sponsored paper aeroplane competition during the last week of last half term. We all had to design, make and fly our own planes to see who's went the furthest in our year groups. We are delighted to announce that we raised an incredible £1,473.94! Thank you all so much for your generous donations. The winners: Our Year 3 winner was Jackson L who managed an 11 metre throw. In Year 4 our winner was Ronnie J’s with a whopping 22 metre throw!
CHRISTMAS CARDS FOR OUR LOCAL CARE HOME: Year 4 had a real arty afternoon creating Christmas cards for local care homes. They used finger painting to create some Christmas baubles and lights as well as reindeers. They children could choose how to decorate it. They look amazing. We also discussed how sometimes people do not have Christmas cards so ours would be a nice surprise.
ZOO LAB CAME TO GLEBE: Year 4 had a great experience on Thursday 7th December when Zoo lab came to visit. The children had got up close with a corn snake, a tarantula (who stayed in her box), a tree frog, and African snail and a cockroach (who was big!!!). They learnt all about where they from and what they ate. The children had the opportunity to hold a lot of the creatures if they wanted to. They had a great time. They also learnt the importance of not putting your hands near your face when touching animals and washing your hands thoroughly. A great time was had by all the children!
GEOGRAPHY FIELD WORK: We had a wonderful geography week looking at our local area. One aspect of the week was to go on a field trip around Southwick and look at how it has changed over time. The children also looked at what was in their local area e.g. shops, industry, transport, housing. They created some wonderful work including some maps of the local area. The children also made a comparison of Southwick in the past and present. They had a really great week.
