Year 4 Class

Road safety year 4

This morning, year 4 had a special visit from David, a road safety teacher. We were taught how to stay safe when walking along the road and we were made aware of what might distract us when walking along a busy road. Remember stay bright, stay safe!

Maths reasoning

Year 4 have been applying their knowledge of multiplication and division to solve the reasoning problems provided. The children started the lesson looking very confused with how to use ‘Napier’s bones’, although towards the end of the lesson the children had a better understanding.

World book day

We created a word bank based on how Sunny was feeling throughout his journey and then the children wrote a diary entry from Sunny’s propesctive. Year 4 wrote a diary entry pretending to be the main character from our text for the day, Meerkat Mail.

Year 4 Express Event

Year 4 had a lovely morning during our express event on Tuesday. We found words associated with the human body on a word search, played snap and completed our own human body posters. Thank you to everyone who came along to show your support. It was wonderful to see so many of you join us.

Harini awarded Oscar!

This afternoon Harini was presented with a certificate for her excellence in Presentation. As a reward Oscar, our Presentation teddy, will spend the week on Harini’s desk. Each week a child from each year group will be nominated for their excellent presentation. Out of those nominated, one winner will be chosen.

What is Saliva?

Year 4 conducted an experiment this afternoon trying to understand the significance of saliva. Four children chewed four pieces of cracker for a different period of time. Then we left them for thirty minutes until finally adding iodine to see how the colour, smell and texture would change.

Maths Reasoning

This morning year 4 worked together to try and understand how to complete the multiplication jigsaw. The children worked extremely well together and it was lovely to slowly watch the ‘light bulb’ moments when they all realised it was easier to complete than they originally thought.
