Year 4 / Blwyddyn 4 2019 - 2020
Welcome to Year 4. Croeso i Ddosbarth 4!
Miss Ellingham welcomes you to year 4’s class page. Here you will find useful information about Year Four, including our current topics and recent news. Our teaching assistant in year four is Mrs Reynolds. Should you wish to discuss any aspect of your child’s development, please do not hesitate to arrange a meeting with Miss Ellingham via the school office.
In Year 4, your child will continue to learn the Key Stage 2 curriculum. Compulsory national curriculum subjects at primary school include English, Maths, Science, Design and Technology, History, Geography, Art and Design, Music, PE, Swimming, ICT and Welsh.
Ysgol Derwen is moving towards implementing the new curriculum, which becomes statutory in 2022. The curriculum will become more child led with children taking more responsibility for their own learning.

Summer Term 2020
What a different term this is going to be. I hope you are all well and coping with the distance learning tasks. Remember they are just suggestions and there is no pressure for you to complete them all. Just do what you can and try your best. You can access this work either here, on the school website under the 'distance learning tab' or on Google Classroom. It is up to you how you do the work.
It is equally important to stay in touch with each other, you can communicate via the question topics on Google Classroom and see what you have all been up to. Oscar may also make an appearance or two! There is also a year four virtual library (see gallery items below) which you can contribute to.
It is really important that we all look after our mental health and wellbeing during these times and take time to enjoy the outdoors safely and get our daily exercise as recommended by the Government. Hopefully the good weather will continue so we can do some daily exercise. Please do not do any rain dances! Other activities that can help keep your mind focussed are colouring, drawing or reading.
Our topic this term is Rumble in the Jungle / Wild Things. This topic is ideal for exploring your gardens and wildlife that you may have. There is a distance learning plan in the files section to show what activities we will cover. There are also some great interactive zoo tours online which you can watch and share what you have seen and learnt. There are some links in the files section of this page (see below) and Google classrooms for you to explore.
Stay safe Year 4.
