Year 4

11 January 2019

This week, Year 4 have had a lovely start back to the new year! We have had the pleasure of chef Mr Deveney who has shown us how to make our own vegetable paella. We have started our topic on ‘The Romans’ and have been looking at maps of the Roman empire. In science, we have been learning about solids, liquids and gases. We have also been learning about a Jewish festival of light called Hannukah and learned that the menorah is a special candelabra. Science homework this week, is a recipe to show changing states. The children have 2 weekends in which to hopefully have a go at making and enjoying the recipe.

This week, Year 4 have had their first Classroom Kitchen experience with James Deveney (professional chef). He got us to make coleslaw using carrots, Greek yogurt and cabbage. We loved it! James will return in the new year and we will have 2 more cooking experiences. Also, this week we have been doing our Science assessments on our topic of Living things. Mr Rigby was very kind and on Thursday, he came to our class and re-enacted the Battle of Hastings on the school playground! We loved that, too! The choir members have sung in  our Afternoon concert in the school hall and we have loved our Christmas party games and film whilst wearing our own clothes. We wish everyone a Merry Christmas.

 

14th December 2018

This week, Year 4 have performed in their Brass concert (Tuesday morning). They were little superstars. We really enjoyed being together singing and playing and our audience was brilliant! Mr Ford and Mr Richeton the brass teachers were very impressed with us!

We have also been learning about features of Norman churches and will look out for these in St Paul’s church on Tuesday during our Advent Service 6pm.  We have also been learning about different habitats and threats to them and the subsequent effect upon food chains within these habitats. We know the difference between prey, producer, consumer and predator. We have been practising our carol for the Advent service and Year 4 choir members have also been practising for their concert next Thursday afternoon in school. Busy, busy, busy!

This week, Year 4 have been on ‘Assessment week’. They have shown extra special resilience and positive attitudes despite finding some questions very challenging. They have made yummy mince pies with our chef Mr Deveny.

Year 4 have also been working hard putting together gymnastics routines within their groups ready for next week’s assessment by Mr Riley. He has been very impressed with the way they worked together. We have been rehearsing for our Brass concert on Tuesday 10.45 am (all welcome).
