Hello! Welcome to Year 4!
HOMEWORK UPDATE: We now have an email address for the children to email their electronic homework to their class teachers. Please make sure the email contains the child’s name and the name of their class teacher.
We have applied what we have learnt in our Science lessons, about electrical circuits and switches, by designing and creating our own Christmas lights.
We supported the ‘Save the Children’ charity by making a donation, for wearing our Christmas jumpers (and best Christmas attire) to school on Friday 15th December 2017.
On Thursday 14th and Friday 15th December Year 4 (and the other year groups) wowed packed out audiences, with their performances in this year’s Christmas production of Superstar. Here are some pictures of the year 4 cast on stage.
We loved wearing our shepherd costumes in year 4, for the Christmas performances! No socks in sight!
We enjoyed making series circuits, in year 4, in our Science and DT lessons. We went on to make our own switches out of paper clips, split pins and foil.
On Friday 17th we donated money to wear our PJs to school for ‘Children in Need’!
As part of remembrance week and anti-bullying week the children in class 4 JM/TD painted and decorated some rocks with poppies and kind, inspirational messages. The children then hid the rocks around the school grounds for other children to find, spreading joy! These pictures show some of the hiding places the children chose!
On Wednesday 15th November, during anti-bullying week, the children in class 4 JM/TD wore odd socks to promote and embrace the idea that we are all the same, but we are also all different!
On Wednesday 8th November year 4 had a visitor, Mrs Riley, in school, who spoke to us about the young men who fought in WW1. The children were fascinated with her stories and research and asked some very poignant, thoughtful questions.
During Berry Time, the children in year 4 JM/TD have each painted a poppy on a rock, with a kind message on the back. We intend to hide these around school grounds, spreading inspirational happy messages to the other children, who are lucky enough to find one. This is one of the activities we have done as part of remembrance week and, also anti-bullying week, in school.
Before studying the Chronicles of Narnia model text, the children estimated how much room an adult male lion would take up and drew this estimated space in chalk, on the playground.
In our States of Matter Science topic, we investigated how long it takes for a puddle to evaporate. The children predicted how long they thought it would take, then measured the perimeter of the puddles at regular intervals.
During our Yom Kippur themed Berry Time session we enjoyed creating model shofars from papier-mâché. We worked together effectively as a team afterwards to restore the classroom and we won tidy classroom award for our efforts!
