Year 4 is within the lower Key Stage 2 phase at Savile Park. In Year 4 the children continue their exciting learning journey where collaborative discovery is at the heart of our day to day activities and all children are encouraged to take appropriate risks.

Learning is based around a thematic curriculum where personalised child-led activities are central to our vision. Children are encouraged and supported to develop their own questions and enquiries as well as finding the answers to these through collaborative learning challenges across the curriculum. Each day all children are given the opportunity to Review & Reflect’ on their learning journey, utilising what they have learnt in different contexts – in order to gain a deeper understanding and a real purpose for learning. .

Every classroom is stimulating, encouraging and vibrant; from interactive displays to working walls, all classrooms are organised so that children can learn in a variety of ways and celebrate success. 

There are relevant areas of provision and resources that support and develop the children’s skills and knowledge across the curriculum. The flexible timetables is a balanced between supported group work, collaborative learning and independent discovery time.

By the end of Year 4 we envisage the children to be resilient, resourceful learners who welcome challenges and regularly reflect on achievements and discoveries they have made. Happy, inquisitive learners, who question, challenge and seek out new knowledge at every available opportunity is our desired outcome.

Trips, events and visitors:

At Savile Park Primary we enrich the curriculum for our children by offering a range of educational visits and other activities that add to and complement what they learn in school. There are also a number of people who visit the school to support our work. Some visits relate directly to areas of learning for individual classes, whilst others relate to all our children.

The Roman Conquest – Roman invasion by Kiwis

Year 4 visited Chester and went to Dewa Roman Experience. Each class took part in a Roman soldier patrol and visited the museum. In the museum, they sailed on a ship to Britain and entered the Roman fort. Inside were several shops including the bakery and the doctors. The guild explained that when a Roman soldier broken his leg, the Roman doctors wrapped the leg in goat poo! In the bakery the children were told that in Roman times children ate honey roasted dormice for a sweet! However, the most disgusting thing learnt by far was in the Roman bathhouse. The Romans had slaves who used a metal hook to scrape off the dirt before getting into a cold bath. The guides told us that the Romans all went to the toilet together and used a special stick with a sponge to wipe their bottoms – the same stick! During the day they also became archaeologists, exploring the excavations. As part of their Romans for a day experience they got to go on patrol and learnt how to protect themselves during battle in the amphitheater!

                   

Australia Day

Well done to all the children for all their hard work in producing a fantastic dance presentation yesterday. The children had a fantastic day and it was a brilliant way to launch our new topic. 

         

Science and Industry Museum

Year 4 are learning about Electricity and Inspirational Inventors this half term. To enhance their curiousity we took them to the Museum of Science and Industry in Manchester to look at the history of electricity and how it has transformed our lives. The children got to make their own Lego lightbulbs and looked at how machinery has changed through time. They also looked at this history of the railway. The children have been using their observations to inspire their writing by explaining how their own amazing inventions work!
Everyone had amazing time!
