“An Adventure for the Mind, and a Home for the Heart”

Reception assembly, Tuesday 27th at 9.10 am

Year 4

WELCOME TO THE YEAR 4 CLASS PAGE!

 

Welcome back to the Summer term! I hope you had a lovely relaxing Easter break.  

Thanks so much for all your support with the science and Maya home learning.  It has been a fantastic way to kick start our new topics.  We have already utilised the fantastic musical instruments that the children created, by investigating which would make the loudest sound!

 

 

Please be reminded that during the Summer Term children have PE on Tuesdays and Thursdays and need their full kit for each day.

 

Check back to see all of the exciting work the children are completing in school.

Year 4 have been investigating the functions of teeth.  They worked in pairs and used clay to sculpt various omnivores, carnivores and herbivores.  Take a look at their creations!

IS IT A BIRD? IS IT A PLANE? NO! IT'S A GIANT METAL LEG!

Year 4 were in for a shock on Monday when a giant metal leg landed in the playground! As the children are excellent journalists, they were first on the scene to try and gather more information.  They have used the evidence to write fantastic newspaper reports!

BAGEL BALANCING BONANZA!

Still image for this video
We had a super trip to Central Library and thoroughly enjoyed meeting the famous author and illustrator, Nick Sharratt. When challenged to take on the other teachers in a bagel balancing competition, there was no way I would say no!
Check out the video to see how many bagels I can balance on my head! (Of course I won!)

ROLL UP! ROLL UP!

Year 4 have been 'BUZZING' about their electricity topic in Science.  This week I set them a task to create a 'circuit clown', using bulbs and motors as components! The results were brilliant!

Circuit Clowns!

The children thoroughly enjoyed their trip to Chorlton Library.  The talk by, Ciaran Murtagh certainly inspired, and I am happy to have lots of budding authors in Year 4!

Our trip to Skipton!

We were very lucky in Year 4 to have Lara's mum, Jan, who came to help us with our Indian Art Project.  The children studied ink transfer techniques by using bleeding tissue paper to create stunning images of the Taj Mahal.  Be sure to check our display outside our classroom, I'm sure you'll agree that it looks fantastic!

Taj Mahal Art Project

Namaste!

The children were very excited today as we had a fun and very informative talk on India from Kipp's dad, Kris.  

Kris shared with class lots of fascinating facts about the country as well as bringing in some yummy jalebi for the children to taste!
