Year 4

May 2022

 

Year 4 have had a busy and exciting beginning to our Summer Term! We have worked hard and really enjoyed our DT day where we were able to taste a variety of ingredients which we then used to make our own dips. At the end of the day, we tasted each dip and chose which one was our favourite. We learnt about the equipment needed for the different dishes and a range of techniques to create the delicious recipes! In English, we have written some brilliant persuasive texts as well as planning and writing our own chapter for The Wind in the Willows. We absolutely loved our other class story, Flotsam, where we began our week using our inference skills to match a variety of flotsam items to a mystery character! We were so surprised by the unusual underwater photos that were found on the camera in the story and we couldn’t believe that a real life camera was washed up on a beach in Taiwan! During our final week before half term, we enjoyed learning about the Fruits of the Holy Spirit and used drama to act out how we could demonstrate the nine different fruits in school and at home. We also created a series of ‘Fruit of the Spirit’ awards for the school to be given to children who demonstrated Jesus’ teachings. We started our new Science topic on electricity and had lots of fun carrying out an investigation to discover which materials were conductors of electricity to complete a circuit. In Maths, we have continued to work hard practising our times tables and enjoyed competing in Times Tables Rock Stars class battles! Our times tables knowledge has helped us during consolidation work on short multiplication and short division. We were so excited to start our new Topic on Europe and Italy. We thoroughly enjoyed using playdough to replicate the shapes of the seven continents and we identified the important lines of the world. There is still so much more to learn after half term and we can’t wait!
