Super Sounds in Year 4

Today, Year 4 were very noisy!! But it was all for a good reason: we were learning about sound. The children had to find out how different instruments make different sounds and how the pitch can change.

They explored the sounds made by various instruments in pairs and then had to present their findings to the class which was not always easy, but they got there in the end. So well done, Year 4. Keep up the good work!

Year 4 Invertebrate Hunt

Our Science topic being Living things and their habitats, we learnt to group vertebrates and invertebrates using classification keys, Venn and Caroll diagrams. We then went on an invertebrate hunt behind the church before examining our findings in the classroom and drawing these tiny creatures in detail. Here are some photos of our very successful hunt.

Well done, Year 4!

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!
