Over the last few weeks we have been reading and writing plays. We have looked at the story of ‘Robin Hood and the Chocolate Cake’ and turned it into a play script. Today, we have looked at some familiar nursery rhymes and have acted them out in groups.
Year 4 have started their new Art topic based on the Spanish artist Antoni Gaudi. These are some of our initial drawings. We will be making collages next.
Today we were practising our overarm throwing. Everyone tried really hard and were very enthusiastic.
Watchout for Xavier and Kian playing cricket for England in the future. Their throwing skills are amazing!
This week, we had a new member join our class called Cedric. We have been discussing why we need a skeleton and have been looking closely at the bones that make up Cedric’s skeleton and have been naming them. A adult human skeleton has 206 bones, we didn’t manage to name them all! Let’s see how…
The window in our classroom is decorated with food bags! We have drawn the water cycle on the bags and are looking at them daily to see the different processes of evaporation, condensation and precipitation happening.
We really hope you all liked your Mother’s Day cards. We spent lots of time and care making them for such special people.
This week, we have been learning about friction. We used Newton meters to pull a bag across different surfaces to see which created more friction. More force was needed to move the bag across rough surfaces like the astroturf, concrete and carpet.
Year 4 have been looking at the concepts of trust and betrayal linked to the Easter story. As an introduction to this topic we played some trust games in the playground.
We have discussed the shapes of fish and boats. We moulded plastercine into different shapes to see which travelled the fastest through water. Then we used words such as ‘streamline’, ‘water resistance’ and ‘contact forces’ to explain what was happening. The cone was the…
Year 4 have been having fun making models of rivers with Miss Flynn in their Geography lesson.
Today, we have been learning about air resistance. We made parachutes that were different sizes and dropped them from the same height to see whether the surface area created more air resistance. We found out that the larger the canopy, the slower they fell to the ground. We also found out from…
Year 4 really enjoyed meeting up with Year 1 to read to each other for World Book Day. We shared our stories and watch The Masked Readers sent in from each class. What a lovely time we had together!
