Welcome to Year 4!
Class Teachers: Mrs Shotton, Miss Crouch, Mr Wright and Mr Chapman
At Southey Green, we promise to provide our children with 6 unique experiences in each year group. We call these ‘Southey’s Super Six’. These tasks give our children something to look forward to each year and in places, provide an opportunity that the children may not have previously had.
Take a look at our topics for this coming year. We intend to teach the children a wide range of skills alongside an array of knowledge for each unit. There may be slight changes throughout the year depending on weather, availability and other opportunities that arise.
Our Learning in Year 4
Design and Technology - Healthy Muffins
Wow! What delicious muffins we made in Year 4! In design and technology this term we tasted different cakes and fruits to help us decide which type of healthy muffin we wanted to bake ourselves. We then considered the importance of hygiene and safety before cooking and eating our creations. When we were ready to bake, we carefully mixed the ingredients and followed the recipe using our measuring skills. Even though we found this a little tricky, we persevered and learnt a lot from it! Some of us really enjoyed the healthy muffins!
History - Invaders and Settlers
In history this half-term, we have been exploring the lives of Anglo-Saxon’s and Vikings. We have really enjoyed learning about this period in history and have created some fantastic writing linked to our topic!
During this topic, we were also lucky enough to have an artefact box delivered which contained artefacts from this period of time. We used the artefacts as sources to explore what life was like in this period of time and created some fantastic museum exhibitions.
