Welcome to Year 4!
Miss Manship and Miss Crawley welcome you to the Year 4 page of our website! Here you will be able to find out about what we will be doing in Year 4 throughout the year.
On this page you will find links to the different areas of learning to help with your school work. We will update these throughout the year, so make sure you visit our page regularly! In the areas of learning we have stated our learning intentions, however 'pupil voice' drives our learning experiences so we may change routes along the way!
Diolch yn fawr! :)
Year four enjoyed their visit to Dominos today! They were given a tour of the kitchen, shown how to fold pizza boxes and created their very own personal pizza. An exciting morning for all!
Llancaiach Fawr Visit - February 2018
Year Four had a wonderful day at Llancaiach Fawr. They learned about life in a traditional Stuart household, The Plague and the Civil war. The children learned how to make scented plague bags and soap, which was used to prevent people from getting ill. They took part in a Stuart medicine workshop, understanding the roles of Plague doctors, Physicians, Barber Surgeons, Apothecarys and much more.
Art Week - Dreams and Viewpoints
During Art week, Year Four explored a range of artists from the Surrealist period. The children experimented with different types of media and created a group dream sequence, using polystyrene tiles and printing ink.
The Weather Dress by Catherine Fisher
This week Year 4 have been reading The Weather Dress by Catherine Fisher. Catherine Fisher is a local Author and the story is set in the nearby town of Chepstow. Pupil's have been exploring a role play at Sol's market stall. They used their imaginations, discussing the mystery objects on their table, deciding where they have come from and what magical powers they hold.
POP ART WEEK 2017
The children thoroughly enjoyed learning all about the different artistic styles of pop-Art, the work of Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein. They explored portrait drawing skills and used a variety of media: including, pencil, felt and paint.
