Term 4

Week 1

Welcome back everyone. We have seen some great writing from our class this week with the completion of our Big Task in Geography and History. The children used their knowledge from last term to answer the questions, How is Bisley similar to and different from Cardiff? And, How do we know about Indus Valley Civilisation? Our P. E. days have changed this term as we are excited to have a cricket coach with us on Tuesday mornings. Our new PE days are Tuesday and Friday.

Week 5

End of term already! This week, we enjoyed our last forest school session, we built models of the forest layers and had some delicious hot chocolate and marshmallows. Thanks Mrs Parker! We have completed our work on the book Farther with our own retellings of the story. Our pocket galleries look great and are proudly displayed in the classroom.

Have a good week off and see you on Monday 19th February.

Week 4

Lots to report this week!

We had an action packed day on Monday, with a drama workshop exploring emotions and forest school. We created clay faces and sparks were flying when we had a go with the fire sticks. Back in the classroom, we have been exploring sound and vibrations. We have also become curators and created our own gallery space. Have a look at the photos from this week.

Week 3

It's been a busy week of assessments, but we have still found time to squeeze in some exciting activities.

In Forest school this week, we have been helping the local wildlife by making and hanging bird feeders around the school. The children have been delighted to see birds eating from them over the course of the week. In Art, we have been looking at how we observe pieces of artwork, with the aim of creating our own galleries over the next few weeks. We observed a 'sculpture' in the playground and made clay sculptures based on our poses.

Term 3

Week 1

Welcome back everyone.

This term we are looking at a book called FArTHER for our English writing sessions. We have participated in some book talk and have thought about questions we would like to ask about the book.

In Science, we have started a new topic on Sound. We have conducted a sound experiment to chart sounds we can hear both inside and outside of the school.

We were excited to start our Forest School sessions this week. we have been exploring the school grounds searching for different types of leaves.                                                                                                                                                                               

Week 7

Another busy week in Year 4. We have enjoyed our Christmas lunch and performed the first of our Christmas concerts. We have created our own party hats for our Christmas lunch, explored area in maths and practiced our balance skills in gymnastics. We have drawn and painted some robins, using the line drawing skills developed in our art sessions. These will go towards our final published piece of writing, based on Coming Home. Our next Christmas performance is on Tuesday 19th December, we look forward to seeing you there. 

Week 6

Good news! Year 4 came top of the school for attendance this week and as a treat the class have voted for some extra playtime. Thank you for your support in making sure your children are in school and on time. This week, we have designed and conducted an experiment this week to see if the mass of a solid makes a difference to it's melting point. We have also started our Christmas unit, focusing on the story Coming Home by Michael Morpurgo. The story follows a robin's journey home and featured in the 2016 Waitrose Christmas advert. We have been thinking about what home means to us and mapping the story to help us produce our final piece over the next week.

Week 5

This week some of our class were on a Bike-ability course, building their confidence on their bikes and improving their knowledge of road safety. We have been exploring the major themes of our text, Winter's Child, and explaining their importance to the story. We have been in a festive mood, rehearsing our Christmas songs ahead of our performances on Thursday 14th, and Tuesday 19th December. 

Week 4

This week we have been working on improving our balance and core strength in P.E. In Music, we have been creating sound effects to accompany a cartoon and we have explored and created educational games in I.T. We even tried creating our own code and gave reviews of the games. Some children had the opportunity to read with Fred in the library and we have now had our first Christmas singing rehearsal.

Week 3

This week we have enjoyed using the equipment in our gymnastics session. We have explored the different melting points of solids in this week's science lesson and the children have enjoyed a non uniform day in support of Children in Need. Thank you for all of your donations. We have challenged ourselves with some dotty domino based maths. Some of the class have asked to take the task home to test their families, let us know how you got on.

Term 2

Week 2

It was great to meet lots of parents this week at our consultations. Have a look at the great artworks the class have produced based on the works of Quentin Blake.

Term 1

Some of our Year 4 and 5's attended a Tag Rugby festival this week. They took part in a number of skill based activities before playing some matches at the end. It was their first time playing rugby and they all thoroughly enjoyed trying a new sport!

We enjoyed an action packed Egyptology Day on Monday. We created our own cartouches, cracked codes, had a go at mummification and put our ancient Egyptian counting skills to the test. 

Week 5

Another busy week in Year 4. We have been using the glockenspiels to learn the bass notes for This Little Light of Mine in music. In PE we have been testing our balance and challenging ourselves to beat our personal best. You can see us comparing the qualities of solids and liquids in Science.

Week 4

We have been learning about states of matter in our science lessons. Have a look at our 'Raising Raisins' experiment. Why do you think that raisins float in lemonade but sink in water?

Week 3

 In week three we have been practising our cookery skills: chopping, slicing and grating vegetables in DT.

We have been recapping the days of the week in our French lessons.
