Year 4 News!

Home » News » Year 4 News!

During English this week, Year 4 have completed their balanced arguments explaining whether animals should or should not be kept in the zoo. We have then moved on to write fact files about Mount Merapi which will be used as part of our Geography Studywork.

In maths this week, we have started to look at division and the different methods we can use to supportour understanding when dividing. We have used whole part models and partitioning to help us with dividing 2-digit numbers. We have also started to explore remainders within division — we have learnt about what they are and how division can support us in finding the remainders.

On Tuesday afternoon, Year 4 learnt some of the dances to go alongside their singing in preparation for YoungVoices. The excitement is growing! We also had another wonderful Trumpet lesson.

This week, we have celebrated interfaith week in school. We have learnt about how Hinduism recognises Brahma in many forms and compared this to Christian religion. We looked at the different symbols Hindus have to represent their religion. We watched the story of the blind men and the elephant. Year 4 felt that this showed how the elephant was seen in many different forms and this is the same as Hindu Gods. To celebrate the week, we created art work which was based on painted elephants. The children's aim was to create a painted elephant picture which represented the key aspects of Hindu faith. Year 5 and 4 then held an art gallery for each other so they could share what they had created and discuss the religions they had learnt about.

In science, we have been building on our understanding of sound and we've been learning about pitch and how it can change — we made our own panpipes using straws to demonstrate how pitch changes.

We have been continuing to look at the Shang Dynasty within history and learning about the use and importance of Oracle Bones — we have made our own Oracle Bones using clay and have carved our own scripture into the bones.

Year 4 would like to say a HUGE thank you to Miss Davies for all her hardwork and commitment during her placement. She has worked well to deliver exciting lessons for Year 4 to take part in. They have learnt a lot about Sound in science and The Shang Dynasty within her History lessons just to name a few. I know the children will miss her presence in class and we all wish her the best for the future. We know she will make a fantastic teacher!
