A strange occurrence happened after school this week. A video of a UFO was captured outside the Year 4 classroom, but was it real or a hoax? Why would someone create such an elaborate ruse? We reported on video but some reporters remained sceptical about the authenticity of the video…

Firstly, a massive thank you for all your kind sponsorship and messages of support for my half marathon yesterday, I’ve been absolutely blown away by the amount that we have managed to raise!

This half term, we have been studying artwork by Henri Rousseau. We have been spending time each week creating our own version, we started by creating a wash then practiced and perfected drawing a toucan before finally layering on trees, grass and plants.

This week we have been studying the change of states, we set up an investigation in which we recorded the temperature of ice throughout the day and watched it melt. We had a variety of results (along with a lot of puddles at the end of the day) which we turned into line graphs.

In English this week, we have been using ‘The firework maker’s daughter’ to inspire us to create our own fireworks. We use some persuasive writing to make a poster about our firework and include a sequence of how it works.

Week Ending 20/11/20

This week we have been doing work based on anti-bullying week. We have focused on the acts of kindness that we could all be doing to ensure that our bubble is a harmonious and inclusive place to work. We discussed the different roles that people can play to achieve our goal.

Week Ending 4/12/20

This week we have been looking at circuits and electricity, we have learnt about how to be safe around electricity, have created a simple series circuit, made own switches and designed our own patterns to put on a motor and watched it spin around.

Throughout the half term, we have been learning the xylophone. We have learnt to play small piece of music and beginning to reading notes on a score. We are starting to create our own pieces of music using the skills we have acquired already.

Season’s Greetings and Happy New Year from Year 4 and their worker elves.

Week Ending 8/1/21

As challenging as it is not being at school, I have been really impressed with your work. Being able to see your videos, photos and reading your message (and the occasional joke) has made me feel much happier and hopefully we will be able to be together as a class as soon as possible. Keep up all the hard work in these difficult times and stay safe!

Week Ending 15/1/21

Well done to all the children and parents for another completed week of remote learning. I love seeing all of your work, and am so impressed with what you are all doing. Keep trying your hardest and challenging yourself to do as well as you can.
