Just look at the exciting learning that has been going on in year 4
We have already started to have lots of fun and learn new things in year 4, including maths investigations, Talk For Writing activities, singing along with ABBA to appraise their music! Have a look below to see what we have been up to!
Place Value investigations in Maths using dice!
Music - Accompanying the song Mama Mia by tapping out the rhythm.
Talk For Writing - Acting out the text
PSHE - Team building activities.
Our Trip to the Victory Show!
The children have been using sources of evidence to discover the similarities and differences between the Olympics in Ancient Greece, where it all began and the Olympics we know today. They studied paintings on pottery and discussed various sports.
The children have been using ICT to practice their spellings using Spelling Shed. They really enjoy playing the games and testing their knowledge of spelling patterns.
Year 4 are really enjoying science. Over the past few weeks, they have investigated complete and incomplete circuits, which materials conduct electricity and which are insulators and how to use circuits to make buzzers, motors and bulbs work.
We have been really enjoying our tennis sessions on a Tuesday!
We are having so much fun playing hockey!
Year 4 have been learning to ask someone their name and how they are in Spanish.
Year 4 have been using ICT to sort foods into the correct groups; grains, dairy, fruits, vegetables and protein. They completed a pie chart to show the percentages of how much of each area should be in our diets. They then decided, from a group of exercises, which ones would be used to complete our hour of exercise that is recommended for our daily routine.
They put pictures in order to sequence the process of red onions on their journey from garden to plate. They were brilliant working together collaboratively, it showed real teamwork. It was lovely to hear the children talk about how they used herbs from their gardens into their cooking at home.
Dyslexia Awareness Week
The children listened very carefully to the video clips this week linked to dyslexia. They asked some very grown up questions and discussed what it meant and felt they were now more aware of what it feels like to have dyslexia.
