Welcome to Year 4

Should we trade with the Raiders?

English - The Iron Man

We have been practising our performance reading skills using the first few pages from our new class novel 'The Iron Man' by Ted Hughes. We were very resourceful and organised who was going to say which part and planned if we would use our body to create sound effects or not. It was a good team effort.

What a memorable experience to start us off!

We had a fantastic day with Robbie the Viking on Thursday 24th September. He came in to school to introduce us to our new learning challenge 'Should we trade with the Raiders?' The day was filled with many activities such as amulet making, presentation of historical facts focusing on daily life, discussions about how crimes were punished, drama, scene settings and a montage of events. We enjoyed using the props and looking at different artefacts to learn lots of new things. We can't wait to find out more about this challenge!

Welcome back!

We have had such a great start to our new school year and I am so impressed with the enthusiasm and attitude of everyone. It is lovely to see a full class of pupils having fun, learning and playing together again. 

If anyone wants to contact me, please email me at y4@st-georges-hyde.tameside.sch.uk and I will get back to you as soon as possible. Thank you.

Science Learning Outdoor

As part of our science for this half term we have been in the eco area and orchard looking for living things in our local habitat. We used an identification booklet to name any insects we were not sure of. We created intersecting venn diagrams to sort animals in the wider area in to groups of our own choice.  


We have enjoyed using Purple Mash to create our own backgrounds and characters to create our own program and code. It has been challenging but fun!
