We started our new topic of ‘Sound’ this week. We enjoyed investigating vibrations and sound waves with string telephones.
We enjoyed Christmas dinner, party music on Thursday.
Year 4 have been impressing us again with combining different balances with apparatus, that they safely got out and put away themselves. Well done Year 4.
We worked together to create this beautiful display. On one wing we visited out friends in the class and wrote some of our favourite things about them. On the other wing we had to work really hard to write what we like most about ourselves. We have really enjoyed reading all the lovely comments.
Year 4 worked really hard in gymnastics this week. We have been exploring symmetrical and asymmetrical balances and working together to create a programme with control and flow.
Year 4 have had another exciting week. It is Anti bullying week, we’ve spent a long time thinking about how to spread kindness.
Also on Thursday we had a blast in boogie bounce which was great fun and a super new activity to try out.
This week in RE, children read the story of Jonah and the Whale from the Old Testament. Together we discussed how sometimes it may be hard to trust in God, especially when you are faced with something unfamiliar or challenging. Following this the children worked together to create freeze frames for each part of the story.
We really enjoyed completing our electricity unit. We made touch sensitive light wire games.
October is Black History Month, in class we have learnt about James Somerset, Harriet Tubman and Rosa Parks. Then we learnt Something inside so Strong. This song was written by Labi Siffre, the song has strong messages about standing up for your human rights and doing what you believe is right. The children have really enjoyed learning about the different experiences that people have had and have really enjoyed learning this song, which they sing so beautifully.
Year 4 have worked tremendously hard on their Roman inspired mosaics, with spectacular results. We hope you’ll agree.
We had so much fun creating our own switches in science this week. It was so satisfying when we made a full circuit.
We all enjoyed some calm time together in prayer and liturgy lead by the children this week. Their theme was ‘Our Happiness’ for National Smile Day (01.10.21). We all thought about our own happiness, people/things that make us happy and how we can others feel happy. The boys shared a passage from the bible that made them feel happy. We were set a mission to make other people smile and made a lovely class display out of our happiness promises and prayers.
We have had another great week in year 4. We have played some really fun number games in maths both in the classroom and in the playground. The children have also written some really interesting fables and been very busy editing them themselves.
We have had great fun this week creating different circuits and experimenting with the equipment.
