Year 4

Thank you to all the parents who were able to come to this mornings reading breakfast. The children always love having the opportunity to read to their parents.  We hope you enjoyed the refreshments too!

Vocab Safari

The children worked in groups to highlight interesting vocabulary from the first chapter of the book. They then found the definition and included it in a sentence. 

Making our own Iron Man

Year 4 had lots of fun designing and creating our own version of the Iron Man. The children worked in samll groups on various parts of the robot and were thrilled with how it looks!

English - Iron Man hotseat

Continuing with our new book, The Iron Man, the children hot-seated in character and answered questions from the class about where they thought the Iron Man was from, why he was here and what they think he will do next. 

Maths - Fractions

English - Making Predictions

Yesterday we looked at a box with lots of strange and unusual objects in it. The children had a discussion and made predictions on where they thought they might be from. Then we read the first page of our new book....
Continuing our Sound topic in Science, the children made their own paper telephones to help understand how sound can travel better along a solid object. Who needs iPhones!?
Year 4 had lots of fun making sandwiches with Mrs Size as part of their Food Technology learning and discussed the importance of lots of fresh vegetables in our diets.

Area & Perimeter - Estimation

Year 4 didn't let the bad weather stop them being magnificent mathematicians yesterday!

 

After using their prior knowledge, the children estimated the area and perimeter of the basketball court. We then braved the elements and measured for ourselves!

 

We were all quite close with the perimeter, but were way off with the area!

The class had lots of fun putting into practice what they had learned about the digestive system. The children loved getting their hands dirty and making their own version of poo! Afterwards they were all able to accurately describe each process and the various functions of different body parts. A lovely way to end the half term!

A massive thank you and well done to all the parents and children who participated in our Health Day Mile this morning. The turnout was fantastic and we smashed our target distance of 50 miles! Year 4 have loved doing the mile each day and are getting faster and faster.
Year 4 had lots of fun today learning about how infection and bacteria can spread and the importance of washing hands thoroughly. The children used a special UV gel that showed how germs can stay on skin unless washed properly, then the children shook hands to see just how far the infection can spread! We used a special UV light to see the germs. We discovered that fingernails are very popular with germs!
