The Year 4 Team

Porpoise-Autumn 1 Week 3

This week the children have got creative in Art, drawing self-portraits and sketching features of their face. In music the children got clapping 3 to 4 beats using crotchets, minus and quavers. In history the children worked together to organise dates in history chronologically. Have a look at what the children got up to !

Porpoise- Autumn 1-Week 2

Last week, Porpoise got up to quite a lot! The children got creating their dream beds in DT, created collages of a still life images of fruit in Art. The children worked extremely hard and have been a delight to teach! Have a look at some of the work they got up to last week…

Seal – Autumn 1 Week 3

This week in Seal class we have been looking at a number of different tenses in English and at place value in Maths. In Art, we practiced our sketching skills and drew some really realistic self portraits. We have also enjoyed Science, Music and Spamish this week! Another highlight was History, where we created timelines of our own life as well as a massive timeline across the class made up of events that we have come across when learning History. Below are some pictures of our learning. Have a lovely weekend everyone!

Seal – Autumn 1 Week 2

This week we have covered nearly all of the subjects we will be studying in year 4. Everyone has tried their best at all times and I have been very impressed by the concentration everyone has shown. In particular, it has been a lovely end to the week. Yesterday in D.T, we designed and then created our dream beds. This morning we have all either taken part in or cheered our friends in cross country trials. This afternoon in Art we have focused on our sketching and collage skills. Take a look at some of our brilliant learning below:

Spellings – Autumn 1 Week 2

Afternoon everyone! Now that we have settled back at school we are going to start giving out weekly spellings from the Year 3 & 4 spelling lists. These will be put up in class and placed on the blog every Friday to be tested the following Friday (so these words will be tested on the 24th of September).

This week our words are:











Have a great weekend,

The Year 4 Team.

Selsdon Primary School and Nursery

We are looking forward to Fridays returning to being our day to be extra sporty at Selsdon Primary. In this vein, we are having our trials for cross-country this Friday!

We are hoping this year sees us return to attending the Croydon-wide competition at Lloyd Park, showing all of Croydon what we’re made of.

As we were not able to attend this competition last year, we are hoping to return to previous great form and secure some team and individual medals.

On Friday 17th September, we will be holding cross-country trials for Years 1-6 throughout the day.

If you wish to take part on Friday, all you need to do is wear your PE/sports clothing (anything comfortable and appropriate for running long-distance) and trainers and when your teacher says it’s time for cross-country, you go to the start line! If it is not your usual day for…
