Welcome to 4OB- Mrs O'Brien's class!


Tell The World

After Hull’s exciting summer, we are moving into the ‘Tell the World’ season. This term we will be shouting out about some of Hull’s heroes such as Clive Sullivan, Thomas Ferens and William Colbeck and asking ‘What’s our story?’



As part of our exciting topic work, we will be visiting Feren’s Art Gallery on Thursday 19th October 2017  to see the Turner Prize. More details to follow.


This term the children will write a range of text types based on our class book ‘The Firework-maker’s Daughter’ by Philip Pullman. Our writing will include recounts, persuasion and narrative pieces. We will become more familiar with a wider range of sentence structures, grammatical features and spelling rules.



During the Autumn term, the children will become more confident in working with 4 digit numbers. They will secure their understanding of place value and with mental and written methods for the four operations. Building on their work in Year 3, we will continue to rehearse times tables. Through our topic work, the children will work with data and measures. 



In the first half term, our science focus will be the digestive system and teeth. The children will be taking part in many hands on practical experiments and developing their scientific vocabulary. In the second half term, we will be learning about solids, liquids and gases.



Our PE day is Wednesday. This half –term we have hockey and so your child will require sturdy trainers, but without studs please. After half-term, we will be doing gymnastics. Please send your child with a pair of shorts which can be left in school for each week. 


Book Club

In 4OB our first Book Club text this year is Phillip Ridley's- The Krindlekrax. Each Friday your child will have a section from the book to read at home as part of their weekly homework. We encourage you to read and enjoy this text together and ask that your child brings the book back on Monday for our Book Club sessions.
