St Mark Year 4
Hello and welcome back to the new academic school year.
Mrs Ellement and I (Miss Phelan) will be teaching Year 4, along with support from our teaching assistant Mrs Sweeney. We are looking forward to working with your children to ensure that every child achieves their full potential.
As our school mission statement says ... Together, we aim to have fun learning together and aiming to be the best that we can be!
Please check back regularly for updates on classroom events, successes, activities, website links and pictures.
This term our IPC topic is ‘They Made a Difference’. We were lucky enough to have a police officer come and visit us for our entry point! He told us all about how he became a police officer, what types of jobs police officers do and what types of equipment he wears and carries. We also got to take a closer look inside his police car!
Happy Easter from everyone in St. Mark year 4 class! See you all in the summer term!
We had a fantastic time learning all about the Ancient Romans on our trip to the Roman Amphitheatre and the Museum of London! At our first stop we found out how the amphitheatre was discovered by archeologists and learned all about what happened there years ago. We even got to handle some ancient artifacts, ask us about the objects and what they were used for! Our next stop was the Museum of London to learn even more about the lives of the Romans!
We started the spring term off on the right foot by keeping fit! Today we talked all about how to stay healthy by learning about the foods we need to eat in order to make a healthy plate. We used what we had learned to create a healthy snack and play a relay game that got our bodies moving! We topped off the day, and had so much fun using our energy to power a blender and make delicious smoothies on the smoothie bike!
As part of our 'Grouping Living Things' science topic, we went on an exploration hunt for living things in our local environment. We searched the school grounds for evidence of living things and we thought about why particular living things are suited to particular habitats. The children were excited to search for living things and in some cases were surprised with what they found. Can you spot some of the living things that we found in these pictures?
Year 4 had a thoroughly enjoyable trip to Fryent Park today. They demonstrated excellent behaviour and the ability to work as part of a team. This trip was planned as the entry point to their IPC topic 'Do you live around here?'. During the day the pupils constructed mini shelters for a soft today out of natural materials from the environment.
