 Year Four

Welcome to Year 4’s page for the new school year. Our first topic the Rotten Romans has got off to a flying start as we have already discovered lots about their impressive empire!

 

 


 

Dinky Dentists!

Following our study of the digestive system our little scientists have carried out an experiment to see which liquids decay our teeth quicker! We have placed hard  boiled eggs in different liquids and are tracking them over the course of the week. We have learned how to ensure our test is fair and made a sensible prediction from our knowledge on what decays teeth!
I think we will have a few more children wanting to drink only water from now on!

Mosaic Magic!

Flexing our creative muscles, over the past two weeks the children have been studying and creating their own mosaics, we first planned the design and made them on card and then today made them out of clay! I think they now understand how long it must have taken to tile an entire floor in the Roman times!

 

 

 

 

Rainforest!

This term our topic is Rainforests. Below is a link to our learning lighthouse.

Values Day – Fridenship 

Today the whole school took part in a values day and year 4 chose to look at the value of friendship. We discussed why friendship is important and how we can use it within school to help us to learn. We took part in some team building activities and created a friendship chain using the qualities we thought made a great friend!

Learning lighthouse – Rainforest

 

Welcome to Year 4. We have had a brilliant year so far, exploring the magical world of Hogwarts with Harry Potter, researching the life and death of King Richard III and spending time looking at our national sporting heroes who show British Values that we can all look up to. Willy Wonka has also made a special appearance, offering the children the chance to win a sixth golden ticket! We have looked at issues with global significance, such as the weather, as well as national stories, including 24hours in Remembrance Day. Locally, we have visited Morecambe to see the Midland Hotel and Winter Gardens. We used this experience to compare how the buildings have changed since the 1920/1930’s. We also ventured to Arnside for our sponsored walk, it was a great day out for all of Year 4.

Year 4 enjoyed brilliant afternoon in the Midland Hotel, we had a tour of the building and got the chance to ask lots of questions about the design, some of the features and interior of the fantastic 1920’s themed building. We also had the chance to experience a lovely afternoon tea, with sandwiches and cake.

We had a fantastic time today trying to break some of our own world records that we had come up with as a class. They included popping 78 balloons in 1 minute and 3 seconds, managing to put 53 pencils in Nadia’s hair in 3 minutes and trying to keep Megan off the floor by taping her to the wall.
