Welcome to class 4HR
Welcome to class 4HR’s page. Miss Roberts teaches the class and Miss Beare is the teaching assistant. Here you will find out a little about what is going on in our class this half term.
Our Creative Curriculum topic this half term is all about Britain in the 1960s. We have lots of interesting activities planned for the children linked to this topic. Our main focus this term will be about Liverpool and how it changed in the 1960s due to technology and culture.
Our Literacy topics this half term are based around stories that raise issues or dilemmas. We will be focusing on a range of books written by Jacqueline Wilson and Bill’s New Frock by Anne Fine and recreating our stories that raise an issue or dilemma in the style of these novels. We will also be focusing on newspaper reports this term. We will be looking at the features of newspaper articles and at the end of the term, we will write our own newspaper report.
In Extended Writing we will be working on a range of writing skills each week. We will be focusing mainly on writing sections of narratives with the themes of history and mystery.
In Mathematics we will be building upon our mental and written skills for addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. A lot of work is being put into the presentation in our books. We are trying to be very accurate. We will also be spending a lot of time using maths equipment such as place value counters and Base 10 to support our learning.
In Science our topic is states of matter. We will be learning all about solids, liquids and gasses and how we can group different materials. We will carry out a number of experiments to observe the changes that occur to certain materials when they are heated and cooled.
In RE we are learning all about the Easter story and how trust and betrayal are displayed within it. We will be focusing on Christian values, especially about the importance of trust and forgiveness.
In year 4, we are fortunate enough to have the Bolton Music Service to come in to our classes and teach our children how to play the clarinet. During the year, the children will have the opportunity to perform to the school and parents.
Thank you for visiting our page and reading all about us in 4HR.

Reading books are needed in school every day! After completing a book the children are to write a comment about the book (what they liked/ disliked and what happened in the book) before they are able to choose a new one. Adults are encouraged to listen to their child read and we welcome any comments written in the reading records. All reading records must be signed before books can be changed.
