Welcome to Year 4 2017-2018
Year 4 took part in the Quick Sticks hockey tournament this afternoon. Three of our five teams made it through to the next round! More importantly, their behaviour, team spirit and resilience were a credit to you and school.
Year 4 did some role play during today’s RE lesson about Jacob and his children. Can you guess who is Jacob, who is Joseph (his favourite) and who are his other children?
In Year 4 is the tallest person able to jump the furthest? Not necessarily, see for yourself!
Yesterday Year 3 met the Nursery chicks, we learnt about how long they take to hatch and that not all eggs have chicks in.
Mrs Butt has judged the Rocky Road biscuits and they all scored highly but the winning biscuit was the Rocky Road with raisins in.
Well done everyone for writing your letters, instructions and baking your biscuits.
Year 3 have been learning about instructions in English and how to read scales and measure using grams. So we thought we would make our own Rocky Road biscuits with our own twist.
We read the instructions very carefully to make sure we didn’t miss any out and we measured carefully in grams.
We also wrote letters to Mrs Butt to come and be our very own Mary Berry and taste our biscuits.
As part of our STEM week we took part in the Leaders Award Programme for 2017. We had to think of a problem and then design a solution. We talked about how we could solve these problems then came up with our designs. Watch out for the designs in shops soon.
We have also been investigating light and shadows as part of our Science week with Green shift education. Here were are blocking the light source and creating our own shadows.
In maths we are learning to add up using more formal methods here you can see us using concrete apparatus to add pairs of three digit numbers. Using the base 10 helps us to visualise the numbers and helps us to get the right answer.
As part of our Science week we were set a number of challenges by Miss Todd.
Which group could build a structure that could hold the most weight, who could build the tallest structure and who could build the tallest structure with the least amount of pegs. All activities were really fun and we learnt how to work as a team.
We have been learning about the Chalice and the Ciborium that are used to carry the bread and wine to the altar during Mass. Father Robert told us all about the Eucharistic Prayer as well.
We have been learning about multiplication using the grid method and arrays and division by grouping.
We have also been learning how to present in our computing lessons. We went to the The Word where Mrs Hayward helped us to make our Great Rain forest television show using the green screen. We were in a real television studio.
We had a great day at the Winter Gardens in Sunderland learning about the rainforest and how plants grow.
In Year 3 we have been learning to tell the time to the nearest minute W/C 30-01-17.
We have also been learning how to measure using tape measures and subtract using the measurements we collected. Don’t tell Mrs Butt we have been drawing on the hall floor.
