Urban Sports Day!

Exploring Shakespeare!

Term 6

Year 4 have had a fun, busy and varied last week of Term 5. 

On Tuesday we had a drama workshop with Ian from KIC Theatre. We explored Shakespeare's life and some of his most famous plays. Children had the opportunity to perform part of Macbeth, Romeo and Juliet, King Lear or A Midsummer Night's Dream. Everyone demonstrated great acting skills and fantastic team work in sharing their ideas and organising themselves to perform well together.

 

On Wednesday we experienced a wonderful day of sports at The Three Hills sports club hosted by Shepway Sports. Skateboarding, Basketball, Yoga, Golf, Ultimate Frisbee, Football, Dancing and Boxing were enjoyed by all! We hope the children have told you all about it and we hope that they been inspired to take up a new sport!

 

Look out in term 6 for photos of these two great events!

Reading 'The Tempest' in the glorious sunshine!

Year 4 have been learning Caliban's speech.

What does it mean in modern day language?

 

Be not afeard. The isle is full of noises,

Sounds, and sweet airs that give delight and hurt not.

Sometimes a thousand twangling instruments

Will hum about mine ears, and sometime voices

That, if I then had waked after long sleep,

Will make me sleep again. And then, in dreaming,

The clouds methought would open and show riches

Ready to drop upon me, that when I waked

I cried to dream again.

Head, shoulders, knees and toes in French!

Miss Brown, a visiting trainee teacher, taught us "Tête, épaule, genou et pied." Practise our French learning with this short song clip.

Types of Angles (YMCA Karaoke)

As part of our learning of angles we sang this well known karaoke song to help us!
What is the difference between a right angle, acute angle, obtuse angle and straight line angle? Sing the song to revise the angle facts.

Term 5

In Term 5 Year 4 will be continuing to celebrate their times tables knowledge.

The year 4 expectation is for every child to know all of the times tables to 12 x 12.

All children are encouraged to practise over the Easter holidays to increase their times table knowledge further.

Check out the following websites.

Dragon's Den

In our Team Huddle groups we presented our volcano themed inventions to the panel of 'dragons'. The dragons had to decide which invention they would invest in and why.

A massive well done to all of the children for sharing their learning so confidently on Friday. It was lovely for the children to present their play script, dance, ukelele, art, science, topic and home learning to the school community.

 

Thank you to all of you who attended Attenborough's family worship. It was fantastic to see so many of you there on Friday. 

 

Sofia and Gracie ended our worship with our worship prayer.

 

We thank you Lord for our lovely school, its beautiful environment and the wonderful learning opportunities.

Please help everyone at Lyminge school to be the best learner they can be,

 

Amen

Year 4 Yearly Curriculum Plan

Arithmetic tests - mental maths focus for term 3 and 4.

Every Monday children will be completing an arithmetic task in order to revise strategies for the four operations. Their challenge is to beat their score each week. If children get full marks they will go up to the next year group task. All tasks will be sent home so you can see your child's success. It is also an opportunity to explore your child's marvellous mistakes.

 

Term 3.

 

We would like to wish you all a very Happy New Year!

 

This term's homework has now been sent home. Please see the star below to see a copy of it for your reference.
