Where children shoot for the stars and shine


Here are some photographs showing some of the learning we’ve been doing over the past two weeks. 
This includes our DT project, writing a traditional folk tale, multiplying in maths, drawing a timeline in history, gymnastics in PE, learning about how Hindus workshop and our book club. Book club is every Friday and this week, the children looked at some information books on the Romans and presented an interesting fact they had learnt. Well done Year 4. 

Happy New Year! 
The children have settled back into school very well and have shown a fantastic attitude to their learning. Today we have spent the day on our DT project to design and construct a Mayan style house. Please enjoy the photos. 

Mayan houses

Please enjoy some of our highlights over the last couple of weeks with the book fair visit and storytelling. We’ve also been working very hard with our times tables whilst trying to keep fit at the same time! 

Finally, a big ‘well done’ done to the children who have completed their wonderful home projects on the weather. These are displayed outside our class so that everyone can see the effort they have put into these. 

Year 4 lovely learning!

Bonfire treat .
We had a fantastic time building dens and toasting marshmallows on the fire. Enjoy the photos. 

Some of our recent highlights have been investigating which drink causes the most tooth decay, learning about Mayan jobs, learning a melody to accompany our song and glow in the dark dodgeball. It’s been a very busy half term and I think we’re all ready for a rest! Enjoy the photographs. 

Today we had a visitor who talked to year 4 about making healthy life choices. This linked in well with our work in science on the body and keeping healthy.

This week we’ve been planning our biographies on Roald Dahl. We’ve also been working really hard on our handwriting and learning where to use apostrophes. In maths, we’re practicing written methods for addition and subtraction and in science we’re learning about the digestive system. We have also learnt about Mayan Gods. It’s been another busy week!

Our latest learning!

Today’s art lesson was to create a Mayan mask from clay. We learnt about why the Mayan civilisation used masks; for battle, for death and for celebrations. We then sketched our own designs and used these when making our clay mask tiles. More pictures to follow. 

Here are a few photographs of our work in Year 4 over the last few weeks. We’ve been working hard on our letters to Willy Wonka and in art we’ve looked at the Mexican artist Frida Kahlo. We’ve also been learning about the Mayans and what their society was like. 

We were very excited to receive a package from Mr Willy Wonker today which contained one of his famous Wonka bars. He also sent us an email to ask for our help in designing a new chocolate bar ready for Christmas. We shall be writing back to him this week to send him our suggestions. 
Look out for our letters soon!
