Year 4 Summer Term 2021

Who were the Vikings?

Steph Hill (stephhill) on: Year 4 Summer Term 2021

We have started our new History topic by exploring important events and chronologically ordering these on a timelinewhere and where the Norsemen invaders came. The children are very excited to learn more about their longships and weapons next!

Exploring different texts

Steph Hill (stephhill) on: Year 4 Summer Term 2021

This week, the children from Year 4 have been exploring and becoming more familiar with our KS2 Library. They have been comparing the features of non-fiction and fiction books and learning how a library is organised.

KS2 Sport, Health and Wellbeing Day

Steph Hill (stephhill) on: Year 4 Summer Term 2021

Y4 have been taking part in our Sport, Health and Well-being Day. Outside, the children had the opportunity to take part in a range of new sports including volleyball and badminton. In the classroom, they had great fun designing a healthy meal planner for Mrs Hill and Miss Downey. The children had to ensure they chose foods that provided a balanced diet as well as suggesting a list of activities the teachers could do to keep fit. A fantastic day for everyone!

Exploring Habitats

Steph Hill (stephhill) on: Year 4 Summer Term 2021

In Science this week, we have been learning about living things and their habitats. Each class spent an afternoon in our wonderful garden area searching for wildlife and exploring the habitats around us. We even spotted a frog in the pond! 

Year 4 Spring Term 2021

Health and Well-being

Steph Hill (stephhill) on: Year 4 Spring Term 2021

Over the past three weeks, Year 4 have had a virtual visitor, Martyn, from St Helens Health and Well-being Services. We have been sharing our ideas with him and learning more about balanced diets, regular exercise and the importance of a good night's sleep.

Money, money, money!

Steph Hill (stephhill) on: Year 4 Spring Term 2021

This week, as part of our PSHE work, we have explored the subject of money. We discussed what it is, how it is used, where it comes from and how to keep it safe. One of our activities was to think about where we can keep our money safe. We arranged our ideas in order from the least safe to the safest place. At each stage we debated our thoughts and ideas. 

Fraction Frenzy

Steph Hill (stephhill) on: Year 4 Spring Term 2021

This week, Mrs Hill's Maths set have been using the fraction wall to identify equivalent fractions.


Science Topic Complete

We have finished our working wall display for our latest topic in science- Sound. The children have all enjoyed making lots of noise to explore how our ears work and how sound travels. Well done, Year 4!

Investigating Sound

Steph Hill (stephhill) on: Year 4 Spring Term 2021

Year 4 children have continued to explore this term's science topic of Sound. They made string telephones to help them understand how sound travels.
