In our geography lesson this week, we looked at the main geographical features of USA in an atlas which we then transferred onto a map. It was tricky and required a lot of concentration and perseverance.

 

                                                                         

 

Monday 17th May 2021 – Friday 21st May 2021

Monday 10th May 2021 – Friday 14th May 2021

 

Children in Year 4 had great fun making their own simple solar oven out of a pizza box! This linked with our work about sustainability where we learnt about how solar cookers have transformed the lives of families in Nepal. We are hoping to try out our ovens soon on a sunny day!

We are really pleased with our Rainforest art work this week in Oyster Class! We tried hard to use the oil pastels to blend and match the colours.

 

                                                                 

 

Monday 26th April 2021 – Friday 30th April 2021

 

Children in Oyster class took part in Bikeability Level 1 training this week. They were able to develop their skills and learn about bicycle safety whilst learning about the health and environmental benefits of cycling.

 

                                                                        

 

Monday 19th April 2021 – Friday 23rd April 2021

 

In art this week, we started looking at some of the animals found in the rainforest and focussed on an area to draw. We are looking forward to developing our artistic skills using brightly coloured oil pastels - watch this space!

 

Monday 12th April 2021  to Friday 16th April 2021 

 

This week we have been introduced to the theme of rainforests. We went on a virtual rainforest tour and listened to the story 'The Great Kapok Tree'. We acted out parts of the story by playing the various animals, trying our best to learn the words off by heart.

 

Monday 14th December 2020 – Friday 18th December 2020

 

What a busy and festive week we have had this week in Year 4!
We finished our electrical games in design technology and enjoyed a lovely church assembly via Zoom where we learnt how to make a Christingle orange. We made our own in the afternoon.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for our Christmas cards and gifts which we are extremely grateful for. We wish you all a happy and safe Christmas and look forward to seeing you in the new year.

We had our Year 4 Christmas Art Day this week and had great fun making a decoration, card and calendar whilst listening to Christmas music. Lots of us also enjoyed a delicious Christmas lunch. 

 

                                                        

 

Monday 30th November 2020 – Friday 4th December 2020

 

 

It was so good to all be back in the classroom after a spell of home learning! The children should be congratulated on completing so much work at home. 

In English this week we have been trying to improve spelling in our own writing. Using strategies like ‘look, cover, write, check’, we practised words on our whiteboards with a particular focus on the Year 3/4 words. Children have been provided with a list of these words to learn at home for dictation tests at school. 

 

                                                                                 

 

Monday 9th November 2020 – Friday 13th November 2020

 

This week Oyster Class have continued their work on shapes and their properties.  In particular, they focused on symmetry inside and outside of shapes.  

 

 

Oyster class joined Joe Wicks for his 24 hour fundraising for Children in Need!

Thank you to everyone who dressed up in their p.j.s and brought in donations!

 

                                                            

 

Monday 2nd November 2020 – Friday 6th November 2020

 

This week, we have been learning about Sound. In Science, we were able to explain how sources of sound vibrate. Using a tuning fork and a bowl of water, we were able to make the water ripple enough from the vibrations causing some of the water to splash out of the jug!

In English we have been reading the poem The Sound Collector which inspired us to write our own poems about sounds around our school.

In Maths we have been classifying and comparing triangles and quadrilaterals.
 

 

                                                                

 

Monday 19th October 2020 – Thursday 22nd October 2020

 

We took part in a Poppy Day Poster Competition run by c2c. Despite not winning, the judges were “very taken by our poppy designs”. Our lovely pictures have been displayed around the school brightening up the corridors.

May I take this opportunity to wish you all a well-deserved and restful half term break!

 

                                                           

 

Monday 12th October 2020 – Friday 16th October 2020

 

In English this week we have enjoyed editing and sharing our own Iron Man chapter endings. We tried hard to include apostrophes and fronted adverbials in our writing. In Maths we started our next unit about addition and subtraction. 

On Thursday, it was Global Handwashing Day when we watched a virtual assembly by Dr Ranj. We conducted our own experimental demonstration about the importance of hand hygiene and how bacteria spreads and the role soap plays in helping to keep germs at bay.
 

                                                     

 

Monday 5th October 2020 – Friday 9th October 2020

 

We have had another busy week in Oyster Class this week. In Maths we have been practising our rounding skills and counting in 25s, in English we have been learning about fronted adverbials and apostrophes and in Science we made circuits including a switch. For Art, we have produced some Poppy pictures as part of a competition for C2C - watch this space!

 

                                                         

 

Monday 28th September 2020 – Friday 2nd October 2020

 

We watched the Big Anti-Bullying Assembly 2020 and learnt about how important it is for us to know that we are not alone if we’re experiencing bullying behaviour. We drew around our hand and created our support networks - five people, we can turn to if we need to talk about bullying.

 

 

                                                        

 

Monday 21st September 2020 – Friday 25th September 2020

 

As part of our work based on The Iron Man, we enjoyed using pastels to draw our own Iron Man.

 

                                                            

 

Monday 14th September 2020 – Friday 18th September 2020

 

We have continued with our class text The Iron Man this week. We discussed whether Hogarth should trap the Iron Man or not and we used ‘Conscience Alley’ to share our opinions.

In Science, we discussed the different types of electricity we use for appliances and completed a sorting

 

 

                                                   

 

Thursday 3rd September 2020 – Friday 4th September 2020

 

What a fabulous start to term we have had in Oyster Class! It has been so lovely to see the children return to school. In Year 4 we have been reminding ourselves about the core values of ASPIRE and about having a positive mindset when we made origami penguins!

We have also enjoyed using the Now Press Play headsets to start our science topic of Electricity. We have enjoyed some team building activities too!

We also had our first assembly via Zoom!

 

 

 

An introduction to our Science topic of Electricity using Now Press Play.

 

 

Monday 7th September 2020 – Friday 11th September 2020

 

This week in Science, we started our new topic Electricity. 

In Dance, we created our own group routines to show how electrical circuits work. 

We then used an energy stick to connect with each other; simply by making a chain, we made the stick glow and sound!
