Year 4 week ending 13.2.20

Year 4 week ending 13th February 2020

This week we have been learning to:

Numeracy – we have been learning about the difference between grid references and co-ordinates, drawing our own dragon maps and setting each questions about them.

Literacy – we have been busy planning and writing Eisteddfod stories based upon the myth Adam and the snake which Tales of Wales performed for us last week.  

Humanities – this week we have designed a dragon trap as footage was captured of a dragon flying in our classroom on Monday evening!

P.E – our dragon dances are now complete, ending in a dramatic battle between several dragons.

Science and Technology – 

How you can help at home:

The focus for the half term holiday will be for our Eisteddfod.  Attached is a poem which we would like the children to learn off by heart, in preparation for the recitation.

Two little dogs go to the woods,

A new shoe on each foot;

Two little dogs coming home

Having lost one of their shoes.

Two little dogs.


Two little dogs go to town

Wanting something nice for tea

Two little dogs buy a cake

And come home happy.

Two little dogs.


Two little dogs go to a party

Wearing fancy dress;

Two little dogs eat a sandwich

And drink pop from a cup.

Two little dogs.

Key Stage Two homework

We would like the children to draw/make a Welsh landscape.  This can be interpreted however the children would like, for example it could be a 2d pencil sketch, painting, 3d model made from recycled objects etc. Let your imagination run free and use any materials/media you would like.  The size is to be A4 width and height.


We would like you to start making some notes about keeping safe whilst online, in preparation for a presentation to year 2 about internet safety.


Please remember to bring your swimming letters back after half term.

Have a lovely half term and we will see you on the 25th February.

Mrs Maunder and Mrs Phillips.
