Autumn Term in Year 4
Year 4 have had a busy Autumn term filled with lots of fun and exciting activities! Take a look below to see what we have been up to.
World Mental Health Day
We marked this special day by wearing the brightest and best clothes we could to celebrate this very important day. Throughout the day, we talked about metal health and how important it was to take care of our mental health.
Mindfulness Choice Day
As part of our PSHE learning about mental health, we had a choice day where we focused on the importance of mindfulness and allowing ourselves time to focus and become more self aware. During this day, we decided we would like to paint, read and complete Yoga. We had a fantastic day!
Reading in Year 4
This year, Year 4 have discovered a love of reading! We read every day and enjoy our reading sessions. In Guided Reading this term, we read The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane and it was our favourite story! We love to read in the reading corner, listen to audio book and recommend books to each other! We even visited the St Nicholas Reading Café this term, we had juice and biscuits, browsed the new books and choose our favourites to go in our class reading corner!
Remembrance Day 2022
Year 4 marked Remembrance Day with a thoughtful and reflective class assembly. We remembered all who have fought and lost their lives to war. Our parents joined us to mark this special day.
