Topic

European Rivers - A river is a moving body of water that flows from its source on high ground, across land, and then into another body of water, which could be a lake, the sea, an ocean or even another river. The source of the river is where it starts and the mouth is where it ends.

Watch and listen to information about a river:

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/z849q6f/articles/z7w8pg8

 

There are many rivers in Europe but I have chosen 6 rivers in which I want you to find facts about and create ‘Fact Cards’ to show the information.  Danube, Loire, Elbe, Rhine, Volga and Thames

Find out the following

  1. Location   2. Length    3.Source (where does it start)   4. Mouth (where does it end)

Grammar – Simile or Metaphor

 

A simile is a way of describing something by comparing it to something else using ‘like’ or ‘as’.

Her eyes are like stars and her lips are like roses.

The car was as fast as a cheetah

A metaphor is when something becomes something else. A metaphor compares two things without use like or as.

His ears were cauliflowers.

Sarah was an angry lion.

Hello Everyone,

 

We hope you had a great Easter and ate lots of chocolate.It is still a strange time as we are not back at school but remember we are always thinking about you and thinking about how we can keep you busy at home.

 

Our topic this term is ‘Passport to Europe’ and we will be learning about Europe and the countries that belong to Europe.

 

In English the genre is ‘Biographies’ and together we will be researching and writing about famous people.

 

Please look below at the timetable below of what is in store for you. Each day we will be putting on new links, word documents, etc that will help you learn.

 

Missing you all

 

Miss Jarvis, Mr Gaughan and Mrs LaRocque

 



 

Welcome to a new school year at St Joseph’s and especially to Year 4.  We are really looking forward to working with your child and we are sure it will be a fabulous year.  There will be lots of hard work but also lots of fun will be had as well.

 

Communication is key to your child’s success and for a wonderful parent/teacher relationship so  we encourage you to contact us via the office if you have any concerns or questions. We will be more than happy to meet with you after school.

 

Please do look at the subject pages as we will try our best to add the activities and information the children learn during the day at school.

Brass Band Christmas Festival - 06/12/2019

Year 4 really enjoyed performing at today’s Brass Band Christmas Festival. It provided the perfect setting for them to showcase their newly acquired musical skills. Thank you to Mr Sagar for teaching them this term and for leading the performance. The children were delighted to see so many parents and grandparents in the audience. Thank you for supporting the children – it was a lovely start to the festive events.

Computing using a micro:bit - 21/11/2019

Year 4 enjoyed using the micro:bits for the first time today. They learned what they are and how to program them. Their first task was to create a scrolling message or a simple animation. They can't wait to use them again! 

Year 4 Cinema Visit - 14/11/2019

Year 4 enjoyed a wonderful trip to the Vue cinema to watch 'How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World'. The children were impeccably behaved and a credit to the school. Thank you Mr Patel for sorting out the tickets for all of our class - it was very kind of you.
