# Year 4 Photos – Spring 1

We have been very busy this half term! Here are some photos to prove it!!

In Maths, we have been learning about angles, symmetry, perimeter and properties of 2D shapes.In Science, the rice experiment taught us that vibrations create sound and we investigated how to make a low and high pitched sound with various instruments.

In English, we learnt a Polish legend about a clever cobbler who defeated a terrible dragon and a rhythm and rap poem about an iguana. In RE, we learnt how Hindus worship at home and in a Mandir and created a Hindu shine in our classroom. In French, we learn to name the parts of the body and what to say at the doctor’s. We also took part in a fantastic workshop on the Ancient Egyptian mummies!

# Road Safety Y3 and Y4

Today Years 3 and 4 had a visit from the Road Safety Team.

They told us some important things to remember when we are crossing the road:

1.  Find a safe place to cross.

2.Stop

3.Look – right, left and right again.

4.Listen

5.Think.

We got the chance to use their role play road and learnt where is safe to cross and where is not. We can now all be safer when crossing the road.
