Fun in Year Four!

Here are some photos of Year 4 working hard and having fun at the same time!

They did a couple of experiments in Science to find out if the bubbles in fizzy drinks are weightless or not, and to work out how long it takes for chocolate to melt at different temperatures. They then made their own lollies since it would have been a shame to waste all that lovely chocolate!

They designed a chocolate bar label and wrapper in Art/DT lessons.

In English they worked in groups to write and perform a TV advert to sell a fizzy drink , a chocolate bar or a packet of crisps.

No need to say we have been feeling very hungry all week!!

Well done, Year 4!

Year 4 Assembly

Year 4 performed their class assembly today to parents, staff and children.

Thank you to all the parents who attended the assembly. The children really enjoyed sharing their knowledge on Ancient Egypt, Sound, the Rhythm and Rap poem they learnt in English and the Amazing Egyptian Song!

Which was your favourite part of the assembly?

Here is the full video of the children performing the assembly:

Well done Year 4! You were super!

Year 4 Maths

Year 4 have had a busy couple of weeks in Maths learning all about angles and 2D shapes.

The children investigated the properties of 2D shapes and are now able to recognise and describe shapes using mathematical vocabulary such as: parallel lines, perpendicular lines, horizontal, vertical and lines of symmetry. The children used iPads in class to create shapes on the geoboard app. They also went around school investigating which shapes they could find.

We also used our ‘Little Teachers’ in Year 4 to explain how to work out tricky maths problems about shapes to the rest of the class.

Here are some pictures of their work:

Well done Year 4!
