Year 4 - Esther

Suggested Home Learning Timetable

Hi Year 4! We hope you have had a lovely Easter! I have uploaded this weeks home learning. Don't forget to show us what you have been doing on dojo. We love your updates. Stay safe, Miss Wilson and the Year 4 team. 
Below are some useful, fun and interesting links: 
Our school has entered into the MoveMore school challenge.

As a school community we are going to see how far we can walk, run or cycle. We are going to record the distance we walk, run or cycle each day, and at the end of each week to send the total distance we have covered back to school. This will be added to all of the families at the school to give a school total.

Hi Year 4! 
I hope you and your families are keeping well! I have loved logging onto Dojo and seeing some of your fantastic work and the activities that you have been getting up to. Please remember that you can send me a message on your portfolio or in messenger to show me what you have been doing! I have added some ideas of things you can be getting up to over the Easter Holidays with your families whilst also staying safe! 


Missing you all, 

Miss Wilson, Mrs Watts and Mrs Wilson xxx

Find out what we are learning this term

Welcome to Year 4. Have a look at the exciting things we have been doing so far this year!

P.E - Cognitve Cog

Year 4 had a great P.E session. We have been focussing on following sets of instructions. This was challenged with our 'Change' warm up game. We then practised our communication skills and practised walking with three limbs. It was great fun! 

Science - Electricity

Year 4 were investigating complete and incomplete circuits. They had to predict if the circuit would be complete or incomplete and then test to see if they were correct. They leant that a complete circuit has no gaps and must be connected to a power source at both sides. 

World Book Day

Year 4 loved dressing up for World Book Day! Can you spot some any characters from your favourite stories?
On Monday 24th February Year 4 went to 'We The Curious' to launch our new Science unit of Electricity. We had great fun exploring the museum and all of the exciting exhibits. Some of our favourite exhibits were the giant bubbles and the running hamster wheel. We then went to the Planetarium and zoomed into Space to see our amazing universe and the planets in our Solar System! Finally, we finished the day with our exciting workshop which was called Scribblebots. We used a battery, motor and wires to make a Scirbblebot. It was great fun and we learnt all about complete circuits. 
Year 4 had a great session in the Forest School area with some of the students from Gloucestershire College. They helped to dig out big holes, build dens and had lots of fun getting very muddy. 

Science - Sound

In Science this term we have begun our unit of sound by exploring how some sounds are created by vibrations. We loved experimenting with rice on a drum and a tuning fork in water. We were excited to see the rice appear to come alive and jump and the water ripple when the tuning fork was added. We then began to explain the scientific reason for this. 

P.E Creative Cog

This term we have begun our creative cog in our P.E sessions. We love practising our fundamental skills in a fun and creative way. This lesson we were practising our sending and receiving skills in a challenging juggling game. 
On the afternoon of Friday the 20th December, we had an unexpected visit from Father Christmas. He took time out of his busy schedule to give each child a very special, early Christmas gift. This was so exciting and we all loved taking our present home and placing it under our Christmas tree. It made us more excited for Christmas Day!  

Remembrance Liturgy

On Friday 8th November Year 4 led our school and visitors in a Remembrance Liturgy. Year 4 shared information that they had learnt from their visit with Graham Gordon. There was time to learn, pray, reflect and most importantly remember the people who sacrificed their lives.  

The Great War - Our Visit from Graham Gordon

Year 4 had an inspirational talk by Graham Gordon. He talked all about the 'The Great War'. It will help us to prepare for our class liturgy all about Remembrance Day. We were shocked and in awe when hearing about the suffering and conditions the soldiers faced and the statistics of those injured and worse! 

ICE Time

Geometry - Properties of Shapes

Year 4 have explored shapes this term in our mathematics sessions. We used practical resources to help us to understand the properties. 

Dragon Training

Year 4 received some instructions from Professor Yobbish instructing 'How to Train A Dragon.' Year 4 found the instructions were not very effective and so decided to create their own instructions. This is their attempts to train dragons. 

European Languages Day

On European Languages Day we were very lucky to have three children in our class who taught us some Polish. They taught us some key phrases, numbers and colours. They were fantastic teachers!
