'Inspiring Learning Together'

White Rock Primary School

WELCOME TO YEAR 4 KITES

Kites are powerful, yet graceful creatures and journey through life with a strong sense of togetherness. As the oldest of the lower key stage two, our class feel passionately about working together as a team and helping those around us. 

 

This Terms Theme

'THE DAY IN THE LIFE OF A GLOBAL CITIZEN'

In our learning we will be looking at what makes us unique and shapes our identity as a global citizen. In doing so, we will be looking at out local environment and comparing that to another European country. In October, Year 4 will be involved in an exciting Unesco project where we are performing music in a local Geopark alongside other schools from other countries through a live link. 

 

P.E & Dance days

P.E. Days are Monday and Tuesday 

Please ensure that your child has the correct kit in school all week. We will ensure that they are sent home at the end of every half term

 

Home Learning days

Home Learning will be handed out on a Friday and collected in on a Wednesday. This will give you the opportunity to explore aspects of your child's learning if you wish.

Thursday 6th September 2018. Brixham Museum Day

We were very lucky to have some historians from Brixham Museum who came to talk to us about the history of the fishing industry. They gave a talk to the whole of Year 4 before we participated in some interactive workshops. We learnt how they used to make rope and had a go ourselves! Another session taught us how to encode messages using Morse Code. We learnt about the devastating affect on Brixham community when the Great Gale struck in 1866 and used this in our own learning by examining primary and secondary sources. Next week, we will be planning and writing our own narratives around the Great Gale of Brixham.
