Hello everyone and welcome to 4G's class page!
We cannot wait to share our learning journey with you and what we will be getting up to in class! We are very excited to start off our year in Year 4 and begin learning new things, keep your eyes peeled for what is to come.
PE this term
Indoor PE which is Karate - Thursday

Please can you ensure you bring a water bottle to school and your reading books ready to change!
Over the past week in English we have been looking at poetry, specifically performance poetry. Here are some videos of us performing our poems to our class using instruments and props!
In Science this term we are building on our knowledge of Electricity! In todays lesson, the children were experimenting with a range of electrical materials in an attempt to create a complete circuit!
This week, Year 4 have been learning about conductors and insulators. They tested a number of materials and replaced the wires, they had to experiment a number of times to see which ones would work.
Outdoor PE with the West Ham Coaches!
We have been incredibly lucky this term with the West Ham Coaches bringing ball skills to our PE lessons focusing on basketball. Here are a few pictures of what we have been getting up to in PE.
In Maths we have been learning about multiplication and division and developing our knowledge of the methods. Here are some Maths games that help us with our times tables and division facts!
Over the past week, we have been very busy learning new performance poetry for our upcoming competition!
In 4G we have been practising; Eletelephony by Laura Richards, At the Zoo by Alan Alexandar Milne and Technobabylonians by Kenn Nesbit.
Here are some videos of our in class heats and Key Stage 2 heats. It was extremely exciting and all children were incredibly brave to stand up in front of an audience to perform!
Mental Health Awareness Week
As part of mental health awareness week, the children have been participating in a number of activities and as a class we discussed the benefits of taking a break from our busy days to give our mind some time. Here are some pictures of our class meditating before the end of the day to calm our minds.
Topic - Water.
During Spring Term, we have been developing our knowledge of water and how water around us can affect our lives. We have recently been learning about the water cycle. Here is a catchy song which helped the children understand the cycle!
Indoor PE - Karate.
We have been incredibly lucky this term to have a Karate instructor to teach the children some new moves and techniques. The children absolutely love it and are extremely focused during each individual session.
Our most recent unit in English was Instruction Texts. The children had a fabulous week full of exciting activities that involved reading, writing and following a set of instructions. Day 1, we wrote a set of instructions for baking cupcakes. Day 2, we followed a set of instructions for an in school treasure hunt (where we had to use trundle wheels for measurements). Day 3, we followed our written set of instructions to bake our very own cupcakes!
Southend School Trip!
Last Tuesday, Year 4 travelled to Southend for our school trip. We visited the Sea Life Centre and was able to explore the centre and its relation to our Topic of Water. The children had a fantastic time, take a look at the pictures below to see what we got up to!
