Year 4 Spring Term 2022

Safari Workshops

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

Y4 have been visited by Knowsley Safari Park and took part in two workshops. In the 'Food Glorious Food' workshop the children were exploring the questions; “What is good for me?” and “What is good for the planet?”.They looked into how our diets not only affect our health and well being but also have an impact on the world around us. The second workshop was called 'Move Like Me'. This time the children enjoyed a range of movement and drama exercises whilst on a journey through the Rainforest. 

Y4 Girls Football Tournament

Despite the wind, rain and hail our Girls Football Team had a fantastic afternoon at Ruskin Drive competing in 7-a-side football. The girls won four games, drew one and lost one. 

Y4H Science

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

This week, Mrs Hill's class have been building electrical circuits. Using a range of components the children were able to light up the lamp, make the buzzer sound and the motor spin. Well done Y4H. 

Y4D Science

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

It finally arrived! We used our Energy Rod to help use understand how we are conductors even though we are not made of metal. We made a complete circuit by holding hands and the electricity flowed through the whole class to make the lights and buzzer work. It was lots of fun!

Science Y4D

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

Over the past 2 weeks, Y4D have been exploring our Science topic 'Electricity'. The children have been learning how to make and draw simple circuits and they can predict the outcome for a drawn circuit. Next, we looked at what materials are conductors and insulators. We have finished the topic off by learning the importance of keeping safe when using electricity.

Year 4 Autumn Term 2021

Y4D R.E.

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

Our focus this half term is ' What might a Hindu Learn from Diwali?' Today we explored the story of Rama and Sita and the first Diwali. The children then worked in small groups to re-tell the story to share their understanding. They were fabulous! 

Y4D Music

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

This half term, we have been exploring the music of ABBA. We have been exploring the song structure, instruments we can hear and finding the pulse of the songs. Today, we compared Super Trouper with our focus song Mamma Mia and then we finished our lesson by learning to sign the song.

Y4H School Council

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

After a fantastic afternoon of election speeches and casting our votes, Y4H have a new School Councillor!

Well done to all the children who put themselves forward, there were some fantastic speeches and ideas. 

Y4 Basketball

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

In PE this week, Y4 have been developing their basketball skills. They have been working in small groups to improve their dribbling skills and passing technique.

Y4D School Council Elections

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

Wow! We had so many children today who applied to be our class representative on the School Council. It was a very close call and we will be announcing the election winner later this week. Well done to everyone who took part and spoke so passionately about what the role would mean to you and what you hope to achieve. Miss Downey was very proud of you all.
