Maya Tortillas!

Date: 21st Oct 2021 @ 3:21pm

As part of our Connected Curriculum topic 'The Maya: What can they teach us?' we have been learning about Mayan foods.
The children tested different Mayan foods last week and chose which ones they wanted to include in their recipe. They then designed their tortilla and wrote out the recipe using lots of imperative verbs. 

Take a look at our final creations - which ones would you like to try?

Eggcellent Eggsperiment!

Date: 15th Oct 2021 @ 11:29am

In science, Year 4 have been learning about teeth.
We have learnt about the different type of teeth, what their functions are and have looked at what teeth are made of. 

We carried out an experiment to see the effect that different types of drinks have on our teeth. We couldn't use real teeth so we used egg shells instead as they have a similar reaction.
First, we had to plan out our experiment and make a prediction.  Most of us thought that coke or lucozade would have the worst effect on the egg shells.
Then we carried out our experiement - the children were amazing at measuring out the right amounts of liquid using a measuring jug. 
We have been checking on the eggs each day and recording our observations.

Check back in to see which drink ended up changing the egg shells the most and what conclusions we drew from this.

Exploring the Library

Date: 15th Oct 2021 @ 10:44am

Year 4 have had a wonderful time using the library again - the children have really missed it! We spent some time reminding ourselves of how everything is organised and how we can look after the space and the books and then we had some time to relax and unwind with a good book. 

Every child has chosen a library book this week and has taken it home with them. These are due back on Wednesday. We hope you enjoy reading them together!

Brilliant Bonds!

Date: 15th Oct 2021 @ 10:33am

Over the last two weeks, Year 4 have been practising lots of different methods to add and subtract numbers mentally. We have been focussing on perfecting our number bonds to 10, 100 and 1000 so that we can use these so solve problems.

Today we played a game of pairs to try and find number bonds. We could add or subtract numbers but they had to make 100! 

Mayan Food Tasting!

Date: 8th Oct 2021 @ 8:39am

We have been tasting a range of food that they Maya used to eat. We enjoyed trying new foods but some of them were very bitter!

Improving our maths skills!

Date: 23rd Sep 2021 @ 3:59pm

Year 4 have been using Dienes Cubes and playing Snakes and Ladders to help us improve our understanding of number and place value. We will use this in all aspects of our maths learning this year so it is really important!

Daily Mile

Date: 23rd Sep 2021 @ 3:55pm

We have been getting some lovely fresh air this week practising running the daily mile. Everyone has already improved their distance and speed - well done Year 4!

Threshold Challenges!

Date: 14th Sep 2021 @ 9:30pm

This week, year 4 took part in a threshold challenge. 

After break, children returned to their classroom to find a picture blocking their way, along with some thought-provoking questions. Their challenge was to remember as many things as they could about the picture, while also answering the questions.

The children used the retrieval skills they had practiced all week, as well as plenty of enthusiasm, to discuss what they had discovered.

They showed super learning and team work skills - well done, year 4!

Welcome Back!
