Year 4

Year 4 Sea Life Centre trip! 8.12.17

Year 4 had a wonderful time at the Sea Life Centre in Birmingham!  We had a tiring but fun day, and discovered lots of new things!

 

Potions topic began with a bang in year 4 with a visit from Jupiter Jack from Mad Science. We all had a wonderful day, making wands and creating some of our own spells to cast and potions to pour. Our gaggle of wizards, witches and scientists looked brilliant and had lots of fun!

Autumn 1 2017

The children will be finding out what different potions can be - will they be a poison, a mixture, an aromatic brew, a vapour, a liquid or a sticky goo? They will be entering an amazing magical world of potions and their properties.

They will think and work like scientists - but they need to beware! There are some powerful and deadly potions out there - dangerous, unpredictable or plain tragic (just ask Romeo and Juliet!)

 

Spring 1 - Road Trip USA!

Google Expeditions!

 

 

Today, Google Expeditions came into school to show off their new education app 'Expedition.' By using virtual reality technology, pupils were transported to various places around the world including underwater reefs, the Galápagos Islands, and even some volcanoes. All of this through a simple free app from the App Store and the play Store. Year four had a fantastic time visiting famous American landmarks, such as the Grand Canyon and the Golden Gate Bridge! We even had time for a quick float in space before arriving safely back in the classroom!

 

     

 

     

 

Autumn 2 - Blue Abyss

Children in Need

On Friday, the whole school took part in a special assembly. The children and staff dressed up in spotty clothes to raise money for Children in Need. 

The children also thought about what it means to be a great friend. They each wrote a message of friendship which were all linked together to form a whole school paper chain.

Tic Tac Toe Homework

 

I made a medieval house for my Tic Tac Toe homework.

 

Picture 1

I got a cardboard box and covered it with twigs to make the walls. I made the thatched roof out of an old door mat. I used bits cut off an old Christmas tree to make trees round the edge of the house. I added a hen coop and sheep pen for extra detail and straw for the flooring. 

I am really proud of all my hard work and the effort I out in to my homework. I wouldn't have been able to do it without my ace Grandad. 

Summer 1

 

My Tic Tac Toe homework.

I got two straws and whoever picks the longest one goes first. The cards have questions on them. You need to answer a question right to move round the board. The questions are about Roman numerals and Roman life. I made the game from an old broken one. I felt relieved when we had finished making it because it took a long time. I felt extremely proud when it was done. My friends were all asking to have a go at my new game. It was great fun making this with Mum and Dad at home.

Dance

Children from years four, five and six have been rehearsing hard for a dance performance at the Albony Theatre. They adapted traditional Indian dance moves to create a routine to fit with music from the Lion King. Mrs. Prasad led the dance team and was incredibly proud of the children's attitudes, commitment and enthusiasm.
