Book Fair

We have chosen our new books with the money we raised from the book fair. We have wrapped them up and put brief descriptions on them and the children were selected at random to choose on based on the description. The children were SO excited to open them and could not wait to get started reading.

World Book Day

Today we have been creating book characters with potatoes and craft materials. The children’s ideas have been fab. Take a look at a sample of them below and see if you can spot who they are.

Science is Fun!

As part of our learning on solids, liquids and gases, we created slimey gloop using cornflour mixed with water. We made predictions on what would happen. We found out that when pressure was applied, the mixture had the properties of a solid. When the pressure was released, the mixture had the properties of a liquid.

Pizza Making in Year 4B

As part of our learning on “The Art of Food” we have been designing and making our very own pizzas to take home and share with our families. The pizzas have looked delicious and the children were so excited to take them home and share them.

Chinese New Year

Today we have been learning about Chinese New Year. We have been looking at the different parades that happen and made our own dragons inspired by these. We have also made our own Chinese lanterns.

Autumn Term

This promises to be a very exciting year for us all in Year 4 and there will be lots of pictures, updates and descriptions from our work throughout the year so please keep checking this page regularly to see what we have been up to .

Our first topic of the year is Sparks Might Fly. We will be investigating electricity by creating circuits. The children will also be looking into the electrical appliances around our school and their homes and learning how to keep themselves safe around these.

We will be beginning our first term together by reading The Firework Makers Daughter. The children will be innovating the fantasy novel and creating their very own!

We got to have a go at a new sport called Nordic Walking which was really good for our upper body strength and fitness. 



For our R.E topic on Hinduism, the children have made their own diva lamps out of clay and card. We have also used coloured rice to create diwali patterns as part of our learning on the festival of Diwali.

We got to go to Bankfield Museum and learn all about WW2.

We had a very exciting time when a real Mad Scientist came to see us!

   We had a great time on our first day pretending to go be engineers!
