Explorer Dome Visit: At the start of the January term, Year 4 started their Science topic of sound with a visit from Explorer Dome. In the dome they learnt about vibration, sound waves, pitch and hearing through an interactive and hands on show. There was thunder and lightning, pops and pipes and music made.
It was a memorable learning visit, which the children all thoroughly enjoyed!
Weston Museum Exhibition: Year 4 classes went to Weston Museum on 14th December to showcase the incredible artefacts they made during their Romans topic. The Year 4 team are incredibly proud of the artefacts they created and how well they set up the exhibition independently.
Celebrating Maths: In November, Year 4 had a great time celebrating Maths week. They created their own board games in the style of Articulate but based the topics on their Maths learning. After decorating their boards, they created question cards and then played the games together. They chose to get tokens to win points when they got an answer correct!
Roman Topic Terms 1 and 2: Year 4 classes history topic has been focusing on the Romans and the children had the opportunity to enjoy first hand experiences during the Autumn Term.
Weston Museum supported Year 4 with the topic. The children made replicas of Roman pottery and sewed their own Roman Standard Flags.
Some of Year 4's excellent Roman artefacts and drawings from their first homework project.
They also had a great time developing their pottery skills further. Using air dry clay, Year 4 made Roman pots to add to their growing collection of artefacts for their museum display. Well done Year 4!
Year 4 Overnight Camp Adventure 1st and 2nd July: Year 4 had an amazing time at Osprey Camp! They took part in an assault course, enjoyed den building, fire wood collecting, cricket and a farm tour. The children had the opportunity to play games around the camp site, create gods eyes and play in the forest area.
The children were a credit to the school and staff were incredibly impressed. The Year 4 Team hope they enjoyed it as much as they did! The children returned to school on 2nd July and shared a picnic lunch together provided by our Kitchen Team.
Year 4 Make Biscotti: As part of their Geography topic on Italy, Year 4 made chocolate chip Biscotti. Working in small groups they weighed and combined ingredients before creating a dough log. Our wonderful kitchen staff then baked the biscotti biscuits for them. The children evaluated their efforts and were able to taste their biscotti before taking the rest home.
Year 4 Anglo-Saxon Topic: Y4 have really enjoyed their Anglo-Saxon topic and finished off Term 4 by creating or drawing Anglo-Saxon houses for homework.
Here are just a few of some of the amazing pieces we’ve had in. Well done Year 4!
As part of our Year 4 Home Learning, the children have been looking at illustrations by Quentin Blake following a YouTube video of how to draw Willy Wonka. We were very impressed with what the children achieved. Well Done! ⭐️
Term 1: Our Year 4 Roman Topic homework displays
Year 4 Ancient Romans: The Year 4 classes had a very busy Autumn Term learning about different aspects of Ancient Roman life. They created a range of artefacts both in school and at home. During the last week of term, to celebrate their learning they chose some of their artefacts and created museum like labels. Here are some of their amazing achievements! Well done to everyone in classes 4J, 4L and 4O.
