This week in Year 4 has been an Ancient Greek week (as part of our History this term) , and it has been so much fun learning, writing, creating and making too!

Sports day!

In English, we have been focussing on a book called Gorilla. We have looked closely at the different characters in the story and thought carefully about their thoughts and feelings. We then created different freeze frames from this and even wrote a diary entry from Hannah's perspective. We really enjoyed reading our fabulous work in the sunshine today.

This week in Music we have been using the outdoors to compose our own songs using instruments with a partner.

In History, we have had lots of fun deigning and making Roman shields. We have used a range of styles to design our shields including paint, pastels and chalk. We then practised the formations that that the Romans used and pulled our scariest battle face!

We have been practising our comprehension skills by working in groups to read and respond.

In Science, we investigated which drink was the fizziest we had lots of fun shaking the gas out of the liquids.

In comprehension, we worked in groups to read Boudicca’s story and decide whether we thought she was a hero or villain using the information we found. We then had a class debate to put our points and thoughts forward to the opposing team. We came up with some brilliant points!

We have been working on writing 6-digit numbers in maths.

This week, in History we have debated whether Boudicca was a hero or villain.

We had great fun orienteering in PE.

We have started our new topic in History which is the Romans. We ordered significant Roman events in chronological order.

Comic Relief! The theme for this year's Red Nose Day is 'Funny is Power'!

We had a SUPER Science week, we took part in lots of exciting challenges and experiments including the marble run challenge, balloon kebab experiment and fireworks in a glass experiment.

Happy World Book Day! We love reading in Year 4!

Well done to everyone for your efforts with home learning. We have been very impressed by the standard of work we have seen across school. Here is just a small example of what has been happening.

Year 4 Athletics Runners Up 2020 - 2021. Athletics Wyre and Fylde 3rd place. 29th place in Lancashire County.


Our amazing year 4 bubble has finished runners up in the Fleetwood school's athletics competition which we completed as our P.E lesson back at the start of the school year. Not only was our score good enough to win the Wyre section, it was also good enough to finish 3rd in the Wyre and Fylde competition - unbelievable! Not only that but it also gave us an incredible 29th place finish in the Lancashire county final standings. Thoroughly deserved after all your hard work and for continuing to push your personal bests. 



We loved making a sweet and savoury biscuit in DT. I think we all agreed we have a sweet tooth in Year 4!

In DT, we have designed a scene based on Happy Feet 2 and incorporated a lever to make it move.

We loved dressing up for Children in Need and raising money for a great cause!

In DT, we became explorers! We thought about all the things we might need to survive in the wilderness and we decided that one of the main pieces of equipment we would need was a torch. Have a look at our awesome designs!

In science, we have been learning all about the digestive system. We have looked closely at where it all begins- our TEETH!

We had so much fun designing and making our own Roman mosaics!

We love poetry day! This year, we wrote poems based on the theme vision and performed them in front of the class.

We have been working really hard in English to write a setting description about a scene from the Snail and the Whale using expanded noun phrases. Some of us even read our descriptions to the class.

We love our Science topic all about Electricity. We have been making simple circuits, added a switch and tested different conductors and insulators.

Welcome to year 4! The children have been working super hard to create some beautiful work for the displays in the corridor. We have discussed what their dreams are and what they would like to achieve in school this year and out of school. It is wonderful to see their lovely smiling faces and laughter down the corridors and in classrooms once again.
