Spring Term 2019

Welcome to Year 4 



Y4 Trip to Kidzania

This week in Literacy, to learn more about the characters of our story and understand the plot better we role played a conversation between Griffin and Layla. Here you can see pictures of the children planning their conversation. Feel free to ask pupils for updates on our story 'Perry Angel's Suitcase

This week in IPC the children looked at their new topic: 'Paintings, Painters and Photographs'. They were given a small piece of Van Gough's 'Starry night' which they then replicated. They worked hard to put the pieces back together to make their own version of original masterpiece.

Year 4 Autumn Curriculum Newsletter

In Science, we conducted an investigation involving Evaporation and Condensation. These are the results of our condensation investigation.

In Literary, we have started learning about play scripts. Here, we are reading through extracts from scripts. Our job was to discover which play it was from.

Figure It Out Friday! Today, in maths, we had a mini Jeopardy game to review the topics we have been learning, for the last few weeks.

Figure it Out Friday! To wrap up our column addition/subtraction lesson, we had a 'silent auction'. Wit our partner, we looked at the word problems under a variety of pictures, if the answer was correct, we could buy the painting.

In science, we have been working on Changes of State. In this lesson we learned how temperature can change the state of an object.

In RE, we began our topic Advent to Christmas. In groups, we first took turns answering questions about Advent. As a class, we then discussed our answers and came up with ways to prepare for advent.

In Literacy, we were focusing on Judaism but most importantly about the places of worship. We were fortunate enough to visit the Wembley Synagogue. We were accompanied by Year 3.

Our Black Culture Performance

In Literacy, we read a variety of Caribbean and African stories. We especially focused on stories about the trickster spider, Anansi. We learned all about 'Ashanti Kente' which is pattern full of geometric shapes found in West African clothing. 

We received our first official visit from Brother Julian. He talked to us about the rosary and what each bead represents. We also prayed a section of the rosary together.

To prepare us for anti-bullying week, we received a visit from a lovely police officer. She talked to us about ways to prevent bullying and how to stand up to a bully.

Figure It Out Friday! We were given 15 cards with the numbers 1-15 on them. We needed to only use the numbers one, to make them fit into an equation.

In Science, we were learning to place living things in a classification. As a challenge, we classified everyday objects into various categories according to shape, function, colour, material, etc.

At the beginning out our science lesson, "Grouping Living Things", we had to place living and non-living things into separate sections.

To refresh our minds, we practiced our number bonds to 100 by building a spider web! We took turns adding number bonds to 100, once we shared a number, we held onto the yarn. Look at our finished web!
