Year 4

Welcome to Year Four 

This year, in Year Four the class teachers are Mrs Holding and Mrs Wooder (4 Lowry), Mrs Range (4 Picasso) and Miss Sheikh (4 Renoir).  Mrs Woodward, Miss Tsang, Mrs Smith Manze, Mrs Rose and Mrs Kowcun, who are our teaching assistants, will be working alongside. We are also lucky enough to have Mrs Archer teaching Spanish and Mrs McMenzie and Mr Kennedy will be teaching RE on a Tuesday afternoon.

We are looking forward to the year ahead with a very exciting curriculum and some fantastic trips planned! We are loving Ancient Egypt already and are looking forward to using this platform to share our learning with you.

You will find our curriculum information further down the page!

Ticket To Ride 1947 Bus!

Today we had a visit from the Northampton Transport Heritage who brought a bus made in 1947 for us to explore. We also went for a ride around our local area and enjoyed learning about the history of travelling on the buses and how this has changed overtime.

Tell us all about Abington Park!

We were lucky to have Mrs Kay as our visitor to tell us all about the history of Abington Park. We asked lots of curious questions and studied old photographs to compare the similarities and differences between how the features in Abington Park have changed over time.

Take One Picture Shadow Art work

In Year 4, we analysed and focused on shadows that we observed in the painting. We explored shadows by shining light on different objects. During Art sessions, we learnt about tones and shading. We also practised different sketching techniques to cast shadows. We enjoyed observational sketching and also explored casting shadows by changing angles of light source. Then we sketched our self-portraits, added detail by shading, using different tones and sketching techniques. 

Year 4 Harvest Experience

Year 4 visited St Peter and St Paul's Church to learn about different types of harvests around the world. This experience helped us to reflect on the importance of giving and to be thankful for what we have.
