Welcome to Year 4!
Class Teachers: Miss Harvey, Miss Balding, Miss Bridge and Mrs Jones
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
Trip to Jorvik
Year 4 had an amazing time at Jorvik learning all about the Vikings. We got to see a reconstruction of a Viking street which was really interesting but a bit smelly! We are glad that streets aren’t that smelly anymore!
We also got to act out a Viking Saga (we have some actors in the making) and we learnt a lot about kennings and the tree of Yggdrasil.
Stop Motion Animation
As part of our Computing topic, Year 4 have been working on stop motion animation. In groups, we created settings using Lego. After this, we took lots of still images using the iPads. We tried really hard to not move the camera and make sure we didn’t take pictures of ourselves! We had to move the Lego people in small increments which was really tricky. Once we had all our photos (we tried to make stories that linked to our topic of Ancient Greece) we imported them into iMovie. After that, the fun continued and we edited our photos to make a movie.
We hope you enjoy watching as much as we enjoyed making them!
