Year 4

Teacher's Notes

Teacher's Notes

Mrs Collins and Mrs Dawson teach year 4 with support from their teaching assistant Mrs Hunt .

General Information:

In year 4 the focus is on preparing our children for transition to middle school. The curriculum is diverse, broad and balanced and agreed with our middle school settings to ensure continuity and progression in attainment and achievement.

Every child within year 4 takes on a position of responsibility and supports the school in moving forward. By year 4 our children are independent in Problem Based Learning and confident in applying their skills as independent learners.

Home Learning:

Children continue to access Home learning linked topics. Each child has their own Homework diary which is reviewed weekly and forms an effective link between home and school. Expectations are more formalised with weekly activities linked to developing core subjects.

This (short) animation created by Bonnie (Yr4) is of Betty – the family Newfoundland dog, playing with her ball, knocking over a paint pot, getting splashed with paint, then running off with Bonnie’s library book and eating it! It is a stop motion animation, and was made by drawing, colouring, and cutting out the characters, and props/scenery, then placing them on a background, taking a photo, slightly moving items, then taking another frame (photo), and repeating until the sequence was complete.
