Year 4 have been learning about how sound travels. They were excited to make their own versions of the cup and string telephones and designed their own investigation to test which type of string would work best.
This week, Year 4 made predictions about whether they thought various materials would be conductors or insulators. They made human circuits and experimented by adding different elements. They were excited to see electricity travel through water and got some interesting results when they tested a pencil!
Year 4 worked up quite a sweat with Craig McCann this week. They enjoyed getting stuck into some high intensity drills and there was lots of cheering each other on – fantastic team work everyone!
Year Four’s Friendly Fundraiser was a big success! The children worked so hard to make their stalls irresistible. A huge thank you for all the fantastic support we received from families…we couldn’t have done it without you!
Year Four have been learning about how to use internet carefully and thinking about their own digital footprints.
The children then showed impressive graphic editing skills by copying and transferring images, and using ‘smart’ cutting tools to create effective collages.
Year 4 put their resilience and determination to the test last week trying to work out how to replicate this paper puzzle. They learnt all about the brain and how to deal with difficulties.
The children worked together, discussing strategies and solving problems. They found the activity tricky but they remembered to keep thinking and keep trying. Very impressive Year Four!
Just before Christmas, Year Four were hoping to win 1 million pounds to make the holidays extra special!
Children worked as a team to answer maths questions using their Epods and for every question that saw more than half of the class answering correctly, we moved up the money ladder.
Year Four managed to reach £8000 working together! Great teamwork Y4!
When it was time to gather our results in Year 4, we couldn’t wait to take the eggs out of the liquids and inspect them. Lots of questions followed and we had an interesting discussion about what might have caused the different colours and textures.
Year 4 children used impressive scientific vocabulary to explain their experiment. They spoke about independent, dependent and controlled variables. Super scientists Y4!
