Year 4 Science States of Matter

In science Year 4 have been learning about the different states of matter.  One of our investigations was to show how heat can turn a solid into a liquid.  We used chocolate and our hands to demonstrate this process.  The children loved this investigation and the chocolate.

Viking Visitor

On Friday the 17th of November Year 4 were visited by a viking.  She told us all about life during viking times and even let some of us dress up as viking ladies and warriors.

Woodland Trust Project

Each class, from nursery to Year  6, has been involved in planting trees delivered by the Woodland Trust. We’ve planted them in our yard, in the far field and around the car park. It has been a wonderful opportunity for everyone to work as part of a team and to help the environment. Toffee even joined some of the children. Can you spot him?

We can’t wait to see the trees grow!

Save The Trees!

We were kindly given some trees to plant by the Woodland Trust Tree Project this week.

We had lots of fun planting our trees and cannot wait to watch them grow!



Exploring sound!

Last week, year 4 explored the way in which sound travels. The children looked at the sound vibrations using an oscilloscope, and how sound travelled through solids and gases. The children then investigated the way sound travels by making cup telephones and explaining how they work.




Anti-Bullying Week – Odd Sock Day!

This year’s anti-bullying week got off to a fantastic start with our school’s involvement in Odd Sock Day , organised by the Anti-bullying Alliance.

First, the children were involved in an assembly, where their views on how they are kept safe in school and suggestions for developing this further were taken into account.

After taking some ‘creative’ photographs of the vast array of children’s socks, we talked about being unique – All Different, All Equal.

We will be entering our photographs in an Odd Socks Day Competition on Twitter – we are proud to be All different and All Equal.


Year 4 Data Handling.

In Maths, this week, Year 4 have been learning all about Data. We carried out an investigation to find out what the most popular car colour was in the school car park. We recorded our results on a tally chart and then presented our findings on a bar chart.
