ACTING OUT - As part of our Brazil topic, we studied a story called Little Pele. In these pictures the children are acting out a scene from the story in which the main character has a dilemma on his hands.

NUMBER DAY - All of the children really enjoyed Number Day. They got to dress up with a number and had fun playing the games linked to maths such as multiplication bingo.

SHARE MY LEARNING - The children worked very hard to produce an excellent Share My Learning presentation for all of the parents showcasing the work that they have done over the year.

Roman Board Game: to tie in with our History Topic of the Romans, the children enjoyed playing this Roman Gladiator Game in which they had to get points and survive!

We produced a beautiful banner for our All Saint's Day and went to the church for a service with Father Ed. We spoke about our saint to the rest of the school and sang songs about our values.

Acting - we enjoyed doing some role play. In English we wrote a dialogue between two characters from our story - Diary of a Roman Slave. Here the children are acting out the conversation that they wrote.

Black History Month African Drumming Workshop - As part of Black History Month we had a fantastic assembly led by Milla where he taught us some different drumming rhythms. Throughout the day each class had a workshop with Milla. .

Music - learning the hand jive. As part of our music curriculum we learnt about the beginnings of rock'n'roll from the 1950s. We listened to different pieces of music from Chuck Berry to Buddy Holly. Afterwards we learnt the hand-jive to a piece of music.

Maths using concrete apparatus - as part of the math's curriculum the class are taught to use various concrete apparatus in order to help them with their understanding. Here the children are using different equipment including counters and dienes.

Our beautiful silhouette art work! Here are just some of our art work!

Year 4 have returned to school excited and motivated! We began Science Week discussing what plants need to grow. We then designed our own mini greenhouses and we are going to observe and take notes on the growth of our plants! Year 4 were so enthusiastic to take part in the Lemon Fizz Science Project! We added baking soda, food colouring, dish washing soap and lemon juice to our concoction and WOW! We discovered that the citric acid in the lemon juice and the sodium bicarbonate in the baking soda reacted to create an eruption! Year 4 were so excited when we designed our very own ‘robo-bugs’ which we then moulded out of clay and we also created our own inventions! We have definitely enjoyed Science Week this year and we cannot wait to share our innovations with you all!

Science week in Year 4!

Here's another easy, fun and educational nature activity! πŸŒΏπŸ’š

This is a great way to explore shapes while interacting with nature, building spatial awareness and fine motor skills! For this easy activity, all you need are sticks and rubber bands.

First, create 2D shapes with your sticks. How many shapes can you make? What are they called? Next, make flat 3D shapes. Then, challenge yourself to make 3D models of each shape using rubber bands to connect your sticks. Finally, use your imagination to transform your models into something new (tiny houses, space ships, boats, etc.)!
