Science Week - What is it Like to be an Engineer?
Billy Mallinson came to visit Year 4 to talk about what it's like to be an engineer. He explained about the different types of engineer then showed the children the different types of welding tools that he uses in his job. The children enjoyed asking questions and hearing from a real life engineer.
Computing - Editing Images
Year 4 are learning how to edit images in their computing lessons. Today they have been busy changing the composition of an image so that they appear to be Romans. How realistic do they look?
PSHE - Resilience
Year 4 have been learning about resilience in their Jigsaw lessons. They recognise that things don't always turn out the way they'd like and have been coming up with some excellent ideas and advice so that they have strategies to cope when things go wrong. Here they are using their teamwork skills to produce their funny potatoes. Luckily, because of their great teamwork they reported that they were confident their team had acted as democracy, showing mutual respect and tolerance towards each other and their ideas.
Art - Pop Art Portraits
Year 4 have finished their pop art portraits and their finished work is below.
Art - Pop Art Portraits
Year 4 are working hard to produce their own pop art portraits inspired by Andy Warhol. They used their computing skills to edit photos of people who inspired them in their lives, before tracing them using Warhol's blotting technique to create an outline. They are now selecting complementary colours to make their artwork 'pop out'. Look out for their completed work coming soon...
Christmas Nativity Rehearsal
Year 3 and 4 have been practising exceptionally hard for their Nativity and can't wait to welcome parents and family members to the performances on Monday 19 December at 2pm and 6pm.
Year 4 loved working with Nat to learn about wheelchair basketball. They demonstrated fantastic teamwork and made sure everyone was included.
History - The Romans
Year 4 enjoyed a visit from the Time Bandits. They were able to inspect Roman artefacts and asked a range of inquisitive questions to find out plenty of information.
Science - The Digestive System
Year 4 had a fantastic afternoon demonstrating how the digestive system works. They learnt that the food is chewed in their mouths before being swallowed and pushed down their oesophagus by their tongue. Once in their stomach, their stomach muscles squash the food. After that, it travels down through their small intestine where the nutrients are removed and transferred into their bloodstream. The remaining waste then travels through the large intestine before being stored in the rectum. Finally, it is pushed through the anus into the toilet.
Tullie House Virtual Assembly - Ancient Egypt
Year 4 thoroughly enjoyed their Zoom meeting with David from Tullie House, who really inspired them at the start of their new History topic on the Ancient Egyptians. They listened brilliantly and really challenged David with some thoughtful questions related to what they had learnt.
Year 4 - Reception Reading Partners
Year 4 are really enjoying reading to their partners in Reception.
Year 4 have been practising their netball shooting skills.
Herbivore, Carnivore or Omnivore?
We have been revising our knowledge on herbivores, carnivores and omnivores and sorted photographs of different animals into each category. Then we checked on the back of the photo to see what each animal actually ate and if we had got it right. Finally we worked in teams to create a Venn diagram to show each type of animal.
