Transition Videos will soon be available, so watch this space! Holywell, Alameda & Marston Vale Middle Schools have all produced information for children moving into Year 5 too.
Welcome to Oak!
Year 4 is always an action packed, exciting and memorable year as the children celebrate their time at lower school and prepare for transition to middle school. As part of their transition, the children participate in many sports festivals and competitions, meeting new faces and showcasing their sporting abilities. In addition, we provide the children with experiences such as PGL, a three-day residential trip to Lincolnshire, and Bikeability, where the children learn how to safely navigate the roads on two wheels, to only further develop their confidence and middle school readiness.
Our Year 4 topics provide lots of opportunities for the children to develop their independent learning and research skills. Our learning is taken outside of the classroom including visits, snack pack sales to parents and Topic days filled with dressing up and creativity. Learning across the curriculum, the children are able to embed their understanding, breaking the ceiling to their learning through innovation activities which always prove to be challenging yet exciting.
Our current topics are:
Autumn 1: I Am Warrior – The Romans in Britain Autumn 2: World War Two
Spring 1: Blue Abyss – A look at our oceans Spring 2: Road Trip to the USA
Summer 1: Bottom, Burps and Bile – The human digestive system Summer 2: Potions
As the oldest in the school, the children are trusted with increasing responsibility; setting a fantastic example to the younger years, helping in assemblies and assisting with the daily running of life at Church End. We finish the year with a showcase of their talents with a performance full of singing, dancing and amazing acting! Then, during our final week we enjoy a reward trip to Gulliver’s before our last day and special leaver’s assembly.
