Welcome to Year 4!
The class teachers for 2021/2022 are as follows:
4D – Miss Drinkwater
4B – Mr Baynes
We hope you enjoy seeing all the wonderful learning we get up to in Year 4! We teach a broad and balanced curriculum and our Woodley CARE values are at the core of everything we do.
In Year 4, we encourage everyone to be ambitious and aim high whilst being responsible and respectful individuals. We aim to help the children to feel confident, creative and resilient in their learning, with an understanding that everyone matters.
We hope this page provides an opportunity for you to see our children enjoying their learning and feeling confident in what they do whilst putting the CARE values into action.
At the end of September, a company called One Goal visited Year 4 in school and carried out workshops with both classes. During the workshops, we learned that being mentally healthy means that:
- We feel good within ourselves.
- We can cope with stress and challenges.
- We are able to manage our feelings.
- We can be productive and carry out our daily tasks.
- We feel hopeful and positive about the future.
Mental health is just as important as physical health. We learned 5 ways to care for our mental health. These are:
1) Keep physically active
2) Get enough sleep
3) Communicate with other people
4) Do things you enjoy
5) Spend time relaxing
We also made calm jars by working as a team to add food colouring and glitter to a mixture of water and PVA glue. After shaking the bottle, the glitter slowly settles at the bottom of the jar and watching this helps you to feel calm.
A mental health champion is someone who helps others to be mentally healthy. We learned that the 5 qualities needed to be a mental health champion are:
One way to be good mental health champions is to share what we know and help others learn about mental health. That is why at the start of November, we invited parents and carers into school and held a class assembly so we could share what we had learned. Thank you so much to all the parents and carers who could come to see our assembly. If you weren’t able to come, we hope you enjoy looking through some of our photos from the workshop and assembly.
Aiming High in Computing
In Year 4, we have been creating our own games using events, sequencing and debugging. We have had to be resilient and solve problems to make sure our games are interesting and challenging (but also possible)! We hope you enjoy playing some of them.
