Year 4 Spring Term 2022

Y4D Computing

Steph Hill (stephhill) on: Year 4 Spring Term 2022

This week, Y4D started their new topic of 'Animation'. We started by exploring how animation is made using flip books and we were astounded by the number of images animators need to create for just one minute of film! We watched the first ever Disney animated film, Steamboat Willie, which is almost 100 years old and then compared it to their most recent, Encanto, and discussed how computing and the use of CGI technology has evolved and improved the quality and oppportunities for special effects and effective imagery and story telling. To finish our lesson, we became animators and used Purple Mash to create our own short animations. We are excited to explore other techniques next week.

Y4H Music

Steph Hill (stephhill) on: Year 4 Spring Term 2022

In Music, Y4H listened and sang the first verse and chorus of the song ‘Lean On Me’ by Bill Withers. The children took part in a variety of music based warm ups, including different rhythm and pitch copy backs using different body parts and eventually leading onto a short vocal warm up. Following this, the children performed the song together. Mr Brady couldn’t help but be impressed with the amazing efforts shown by the whole of Y4H. Well done!

Mrs Hill's Maths Group

Steph Hill (stephhill) on: Year 4 Spring Term 2022

Mrs Hill's Maths group have been learning how to interpret and present data. In the lesson each child chose a question to ask. The data collected was then presented in a tally chart, pictogram and bar chart. 

Y4D Brass

Steph Hill (stephhill) on: Year 4 Spring Term 2022

Today, we had our first ever brass lesson with Mr Chadwick form Haydock Valley Brass. It was lots of fun and we are learning to play 'Hot Cross Buns'.


Steph Hill (stephhill) on: Year 4 Spring Term 2022

This half-term, we have been learning about one of the world's youngest religions- Sikhism. The children have thoroughly enjoyed learning about their values, traditions and the symbols. Here are some pupils looking at the 5Ks- Kesh, Kangha, Kara, Kirpan and Kachera, and why they are important items for a Sikh to wear everyday.

Year 4 Autumn Term 2021

Y4H Maths

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

This week, Mrs Hill's Maths Group have been learning their six times tables. At the end of a busy week, the children worked in pairs to complete a times table board game. 

Y4H Spectacular Science

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

Y4H have been investigating temperature. Each pair came to the front of the room. One person put their hands in warm water, the other in ice cold water. On the count of three, they both plunged their hands into the middle bowl of water. This proved really interesting as the children had completely different opinions on the temperature of the water. We decided that we should use a thermometer to get an accurate measurement of temperature. 

Our School Councillors

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

Congratulations to our Year 4 School Council Representatives who attended their first meeting this afternoon. Miss Matthews presented them both with a badge, which they proudly showed the class when they returned. They were also able to answer questions and share what had been discussed in the meeting. Well done! We knew that you would do a great job.

Y4D Geography

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

Today, we have started our Geography in Year 4 with exploring and sharing what we know about continents, countries and oceans. Great team effort everyone!

Y4H English

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

This week, the children have been exploring the five lucky winners of the golden tickets in the Roald Dahl book. The children used the text to discover what the winners were like and then created questions they would like to ask the charcters. They then took it in turns to role play and were wonderful at using evidence from the text in their answers. Well done!
