To understand the mummification process, the children mummified tomatoes. 

The children have been preparing for our school assembly.  They have created their own interpretation for the 'Fruit of the Holy Spirit'. Here are some of them.

Over half term, the children prepared some Egyptian costumes, jewellery and masks. Thank you for supporting your children in creating these, they are very good!

We used these for our dance performance on Thursday. Here are some pictures. 

The topic in Science for Spring Term 1 was 'Sound'. The children were set a project over half term to design and make a guitar. The children's guitars were amazing and some of them even worked!

Well Done Year 4!!

The children worked together to guess each others Roman Numeral.

Week beginning 27th November

This week we have been practising our assembly. The assembly was very moving and the children were very brave. Well done Year 4!

This week we have written our own fairy tale following the story of the Pied Piper.

Here is a video that may help. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dFhVECegRqw 

Here is a multiplication square to help.

Week beginning 13th November

During Anti- Bullying week, we have looked at the different types of bullying and how bullying can affect a life. 

We are proud of our girls in the friendship group who have initiated an idea for a club which children can attend when their friends are absent. They went around the whole school today so children could pick the name of the new group. We look forward to hearing the name of this group!

Children have been looking at the Pied Piper and have created a class plot. 

In Maths we have been looking at factors. 

http://www.mathsisfun.com/numbers/factors-all-tool.html 

Here is a reminder:

The factors of a number are any numbers that divide into it exactly. This includes 1 and the number itself.

For example, the factors of 6 are 1, 2, 3 and 6. The factors of 8 are 1, 2, 4 and 8.

For larger numbers it is sometimes easier to 'pair' the factors by writing them as multiplications.

For example, 24 = 1 x 24 = 2 x 12 = 3 x 8 = 4 x 6

So the factors of 24 are 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 12 and 24.

 

Here is a website for the children that contains some fun educational games. 

'GridClub is the official DfES education site for 7 - 11 year-old children. Designed to be used at school and at home, the site includes reference materials, games and safe messaging areas.'

In English, we finished our Cloud-maker story. 

In Maths we have looked at multiplication and division to 12x. Also multiplying and dividing by 10/100/1000. 

In Art we produced sketches of the Plague Doctor in line with our topic- The Great Plague. 

Week beginning 30th October

 

Welcome back!

Thank you to all the parents who are continuing to support and encourage their children to read a minimum of a page every night. I know many children are now reading over 20 pages a night and changing their books 2x's a week. The school library is open every Friday lunchtime for children to chose an additional book that they would like to read alongside their school reading book. 

 This week we finished the story of Firework-Makers Daughter and analysed the plot.

We begun to adapt the plot to write our own story- Cloud-Maker. Using this video: https://www.literacyshed.com/cloudylesson.html

We used stills from the animation with speech bubbles added over the top, the children  wrote what they thought the grandad would be saying. 

In Maths, children have been looking at time, converting 12 hour time to 24 hour time. http://www.visnos.com/demos/clock 

Performance at the Celebration Assembly.

Year 4 performed this during our Celebration Assembly. They did amazing! Well done. I hope you all have a fun-filled half term everyone!

Close every door- improvement!

First version- Close every door. (Turn up the volume)

 

Week beginning 16th October

It has been a very busy week with end of term tests.

The children have practised 'Close every door' by Andrew Lloyd Webber. They are performing this on Friday in the Celebration assembly.

We have also learnt a new poem. 

My Brother Ate My Smartphone

My brother ate my smartphone.
Although it might sound strange,
he swallowed it and, bit by bit,
his brains began to change.

He started getting smarter.
He grew so shrewd and wise.
And I could see that, suddenly,
a light was in his eyes.

He knew as much as Google.
His IQ was off the charts.
I’d never seen someone so keen,
with such astounding smarts.

He solved the toughest problems
with simplicity and ease,
and calculated answers
with unrivaled expertise.

It seems he’s now a genius,
a perfect brainiac.
But I don’t care, or think it’s fair.
I want my smartphone back.

 --Kenn Nesbitt

Week beginning 9th October 

  We had an exciting day on Monday. A poet called Andy Tooze, came to visit us. 

https://thepoetfromthepeaks.co.uk

Children had 8 minutes to write a poem. Here are a few:

 

Dog

I have a dog.

He sits on a log.

He has a chew toy. 

And he is a boy. 

 

He is black and white.

Sometimes he might bite.

Do you ever want a dog like that?

 

Spiders

Spider, spider, spider.

Sticky and slimy.

Scary and fast.

Animals that people do not let them last.

Spiders are not very liked. 

Also they can be in your house at night. 

 

Black Panther eats

Black panther eats chicken.

Black panther eats cake. Then the

Black panther has a stomach ache!

Maths

We have been looking at rounding numbers to the nearest 10, 100 and 1000.

Here's a song to help us remember:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pNfz-JU2cKE&t=75s

If it's 4 or less, let it rest.

If it's 5 or more, let it soar.

We then used our rounding skills to estimate calculations and worked out the inverse operations.

53 + 12 = 65

Estimate- 50 + 10 = 60

Inverse (to check our answer)

65 - 12 = 53

65 - 53 = 12 

 

Topic- Design and Technology

We are in the process of making our battery operated lights. 

Please could your child bring in:

Water bottles, cardboard, foil, toilet roll tubs. 

This is so we can make our battery operated lights. Thanks!
