Welcome to Classes 9 and 10
Year 4 used objects to create arrays to help us understand multiplication and factor pairs.
Year 4 have been learning how to play the African drums this term. Dan has taught us a variety of rhythms using the drum to create different pitch. We created a performance piece which we showed to our families and other classes.
Aardman came and taught us how to make Gromits. It was tricky keeping all of the parts attached but the children really persevered!
The Science of Sound
We went to St George’s and built upon our knowledge of sound. We saw just how thin the ear drum is and discovered that there are sounds children can hear that adults can’t!
In Year 4, we have been learning about the ancient Greeks in History. To link with our topic, the children designed and made a Greek Salad in DT. The children wanted their salads to be healthy and nutritious so included a range of fresh ingredients. They discussed health and safety, hygiene in kitchens, and practised different cutting skills. The delicious salads were taken home to be shared with the whole family!
In RE we made book marks using wool to stitch Christmas symbols.
Clay Pinching Pots
In year 4 we made clay pinching pots as part of our Ancient Greece topic. The children learnt how to manipulate the clay and the importance of working quickly before the clay dried out.
We have been getting creative and making decorations for the Christmas branches which have been hung in the school hall.
In Maths we have been using practical resources to help us solve problems.
We really enjoyed having a Tag Rugby session.
In Religious Education we have been learning about symbols in Christianity. We made our own Christingles. We know what all the elements represent.
Parent Information Evening.
If you were unable to attend please take a look through the PowerPoint that was shown on the evening. If you have any queries please do not hesitate to contact your child's class teacher.
Both classes in Year 4 produced a lovely Class Charter, where they thought about how they want to be as a class this year.
