Year 4 Blog

Welcome to the Year 4 blog. Find out what our classes have been up to lately!

Scotch Eggs and the Layers of the Earth!!

User Rating:  / 1

The children have now begun their topic, Volcanoes and Earthquakes. We began by learning about the the construction of the Earth and its four layers. We used a range of different foods in the classroom to demonstrate the thickness and make up of each of these layers! We found the best example came from a Scotch egg, the ourter breadcrumbs represented the thin crust of our planet, the sausagemeat was the thicker, more gooey, Mantle layer and the egg made up the core with the white representing the outer core and the yoke the inner!

The classrooms smelt great when we had finished!!!

Welcome back! We've started year 4 in a really exciting way by being given our brass instruments for the year. Some of us have got baritone horns and some of us have got cornets. Our first lesson was great fun and Mr Orgill, our brass teacher, has prepared a website for us to visit at home so that we can practice our instruments as much as we can. Mr Orgill recommends 10 minutes every evening to help us to really improve throughout the year. Click on the picture to visit the website and get playing!


Well done

Last week we had a day of transition, meeting our new teachers and finding out about what Year 5 has in store for us. We had lots of fun playing team games like cricket and completing work to go on our reflective display.

On Monday we got to start the week on a musical note, performing all of the songs and music we have spent weeks learning to our friends and family. We all sounded amazing and it was easy to tell how much effort everyone had put into their practising!

We’ve also had our 100% attendance assembly, where lots of us had a certificate for the summer term. Well done! Next week we still have some special assemblies to look forward to that will celebrate efforts, skills and commitment to learning and will be able to share our achievements with friends and family.

This week in Science as part of our Forces topic, we designed an investigation to test the impact of air resistance. This involved making paper planes, throwing them under fair conditions and measuring the distance it flew. From this, we were able to conclude which design was the most streamlined, which type of material was the most effective, and which size was the most affected by air resistance.


Super Heroes

Year 4 have all become super heroes for their last term! This week they have been creating top trumps cards for their own super hero. They had to decide what name to give their characters, what their power would be and who their enemy would be. The pictures below show some of the children’s ideas. You can also click on the website to see some comics that are already available.

Health Week

Last week year four had a brilliant start to the half term. We had lots of fun learning about keeping healthy and got to participate in a range of activities. We went to the life caravan to learn about making the right choices in certain situations, we watched a food show all about healthy recipes (and even got to try some too), we got to play rounders as a year group and practise some simple yoga moves and finally we had the opportunity to try lots of exotic fruits (kindly donated by Sainsbury’s in Mere Green) that we made them into tasty yogurts.



Welcome back Year 4!

We hope you all had a fantastic Easter! What a busy first week back.

During R.E this week we have been looking at music and sounds. We started the unit by listening to music by composers like Vivaldi and Pachelbel so we could discuss our thoughts and feelings about the pieces. Then we went on to understand the importance of words in important hymns and finally, we developed an understanding of the importance of silence in Christian worship.

This term we will be studying solids and liquids in science and rivers in topic.

Don’t forget to keep practising your musical instruments as there will be no lesson next week.

Happy Easter!

Happy Easter to all of Year 4. Miss Hodgson, Mrs Alcott and I would like to thank you all for working so hard this term. We both hope you have a lovely break and come back refreshed and ready to work just as hard!

The music concert yesterday was amazing! Even though you have only been playing your instruments since September, you all did very well to read, understand and play the music. Some of the songs we very difficult and you should feel very proud. We can't wait till the summer concert.

Roman shields

This week in Year 4, we have been designing Roman shields. We found out that the Romans placed their shields into a turtle formation to protect themselves from the enemy. We will be choosing one design to replicate next week when we make our shields out of clay.

Today for Sport Relief, we had the opportunity to walk to Bishop Vesey and take part in five different sporting activities. We had a lot of fun working with the Secondary School staff and developing our skills further. We persevered and completed 2 hours of P.E.
