Unfortunately, we will not be able to provide any external school trips in the Autumn term, but that certainly won't stop us from providing exciting and engaging topics to keep us all inspired and enthusiastic about.
School may look and feel a little different when you first start back. But don’t worry we are all here to help you settle back in and enjoy your learning!
Our topics for the year will include Romans' - a historical learning experience covering so many exciting events and battles, 'Rivers’- learning more about the geography, designing rafts of your own and reading some fantastic stories and ‘Ancient Greece' - a topic which is incredible in every way with so much to discover and learn about!
Check out the topic webs below to find out more about these topics
Absence from School:
IMPORTANT - If you are off school due to illness or isolation, then our school learning will be available on Google Classroom. However, we have noticed that a few parents have not accessed their child's account, so will be unable to access the work at the moment.
Welcome Back Year 4
I hope that you have all had a fantastic break and have all stayed safe and well in these very strange times.
As we start back we will begin our new topic Rivers.
To begin we will be exploring the book called
This story is filled with beautiful illustrations and an exciting adventure for us to explore.
In addition to the range of exciting stories and books available during this topic we will also have many opportunities to get creative, and learn new art and dt skills. from building bridges and rafts to exploring a variety of artistic materials.
We will also be completing lots of geographical research based upon rivers which are local to us and in different places around the world.
In science we will be exploring animals and their habitats. You could create your own river habitat to bring in and share.

Autumn Term 2
Well, what a great start to the second half of the Autumn term!
We have completed our measurement unit and everyone in the class showed a big jump of progress from their cold to their hot tasks.
We will be moving on to our multiplication and division topic for the next few weeks. Here we will be solving tricky investigations, developing our instant recall facts, and working hard to master these key skills.
Make sure you log in to your rockstars account and keep beating your score. Remember year 4 have their multiplication check at the end of the year and they will need to know all of their tables from 2x2 - 12x 12. With only 6 seconds to answer each question, we need to work hard now to make sure we are ready.
Check out our new google classroom page for maths learning if you are having to isolate and/or work from home!
Diary writing continues
Together, we have dived into the Roman world and used drama and role-play to become people from the past.
Emperors, Slaves, Soldiers, Gladiators, Barbarians and occasionally even elephants of war or lions from the arena
Together we have read many extracts from the Roman diary. We have investigated and located the features and secrets hiding within.
This week we will be looking at the SPAG we may find inside a diary and looking at how we can use these features in our own writing.
The Digestive System with Mrs. Rosson
With swimming now called off due to the latest lockdown Year 4 will be completing a whole afternoon every Monday of PE. The focus for these sessions will be Basketball. Make sure your child has a warm jumper and potentially joggers as we will try to get outside as much as we can during these sessions!
Thank you to everyone who attended the y4 disco! It was fantastic to see the children enjoying time together and laughing and dancing.
Welcome back, year 4!
I hope that you have enjoyed your half term break and are all ready to continue your year 4 learning journey.
This half term we will be learning all about the Romans! Together we will be investigating and exploring to find all of the secrets which hide within this exciting topic.
"It's gonna be Gruesome, interesting and a little bit Weird! "
Are you ready?
To start with, in literacy, we will be traveling back in time to become children of Rome. While there we will be writing diaries to record our exciting adventures.
In maths, we will begin with our measurement topic while also continuing to develop our multiplications and recall skills.
Don't forget your weekly spelling on spelling shed!

Autumn Term 1
This week in year 4 we continued to explore 'Here we are ‘. We began by researching and drawing different places from all over the world before writing descriptions of these weird and wonderful places.
In other news, we voted for our new year 4 school council reps with Freddie and Emily earning this important role after preparing and presenting thoughtful and confident speeches.
Well done to everyone in year 4 for another brilliant week.
After a very strange end to our school year, I'm really looking forward to the next academic year. I can’t wait to catch up with the Year 4 children and their families.
Unfortunately, we have not been able to provide our usual transition activities and meetings but I hope that the information on this page will be useful in order to feel confident about starting back at Buglawton in Year 4. You will find links to useful homework information, parent presentations and topic overviews.
When we return to school, we will have some time to settle into our new year 4 environment catch up, and have a gentle start to the new academic year with some fun transition activities which we would have completed during the summer term if we had had the chance. It has been a very strange year for everyone so far and I want you to know we are here and will support your return to school so that it as enjoyable and easy as possible for you.
During the first two/three weeks we will be completing a whole school project based on the book ‘Here We Are’ written by Oliver Jeffers.
