Year 4 have had an exciting start to the new school. We have
played playground games, wrote instructional texts, discussed phrases we should
say more often and designed a piece of art based around “All about me”. We have
been busy learning about Rome and have completed drama activities based around
Roman myths. The children seem to really enjoy this topic and are eager to
learn about the Ancient Roman civilisation. Next week we are having an
“Excellence week” in school, medals will be handed out for gold, silver and
bronze winners across all areas of the curriculum e.g. PE, music, art, maths,
creative writing, environmental awareness, science etc. It should be lots of

During “Excellence week”, we completed tasks
around our tables in maths, spellings and creative writing in English, a forces
experiment in science, an environmental challenge, a Roman symmetrical face art
piece and showcased our unique skills. All this in just one week! We had an
opening ceremony in the hall to start the exciting week off. The children in
year 4 have openly taken part in
the “Run a mile a day” initiative, it was very hot outside but the children
really enjoyed having fun and getting fit all at the same time!

has been a very educational and enjoyable one for the students, teachers and
members of the year 4 family here in Al Muna. We can’t believe the term is at
an end already!
Some of the
highlights from the year have been our trip to Umm Al Emarat Park, the visit of
Chris White, Excellence Week, Sport’s Day and STEM week. Year 4 have recently
had their Roman Day and the children really enjoyed this experience too. They
got to dress up in their Roman attire, take part in chariot races, fight
against a gladiator and train like a soldier! They worked really hard and
deserved their Roman feast at the end of the day!!
It has been
a privilege for us all to work with the year 4 children on a day to day basis,
we wish you all a very restful winter break and look forward to continuing
where we left off in January.
topic is “We see the world like this”. It’s guaranteed to be an entertaining
and creative term!
We have all been
working really hard in year for since the start of the new term. Our first
topic in 2017 has been “They see the world like this” and the children have
been trying to solve who stole the famous Mona Lisa painting from the Louvre!
They have planned out and completed the writing of a story based around this,
their writing has really improved!
Some highlights from
the term so far have been creating water colour paintings about how they see
the UAE, Bags and Bottles week, they learned valuable information around
recycling and reusing recyclable materials, their bottle top buildings, our
trip to the Indian Palace restaurant and we are currently in the middle of
completing our projects for International Week.
The children have all
been trying really hard and we must commend them for their efforts.

“They see the world
We have been really busy this term learning all about famous artists. We looked at Van Gogh, Da Vinci, Picasso and Kandinsky. The children explored and created their own paintings which were amazingly creative. We researched and created a biography about their chosen artist’s life. Math’s week was a great success and it turned out Ms. Darker was the culprit! Year 4 were delighted to have solved the crime! Year 4 really enjoyed Games Day, it shows how eager they are to stay healthy. Arabic spellathon took place that week and the children really enjoyed this experience. It is Mother’s Day week this week in Al Muna and the children are busy creating a surprise piece of writing for the special woman in their life! Next week “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory” in coming to town and it is bound to be a great success.
This term we have been
learning all about rainforests. The children have loved learning all about the
different layers of a rainforest, the animals found in them and have been
shocked to learn how they are being destroyed by deforestation. We have
completed the hour of code, action plans to save the rainforest, took part in
Book Day, life processes and habitats were covered in science and we created
some beautiful collages of the rainforest! It is great to see the children
working so hard this term, they will be rainforest experts very shortly!
