Our Learning

In Art, we have been working with Mrs Clitheroe learning how to paint using watercolours.

We gave a special performance for our families to show how much we have learnt in the first term of having violin lessons.

We had a very special visitor who came to talk to us about her experiences climbing up Mount Everest to Base Camp last October. She brought lots of photos to show us and some prayer flags for us to keep.

Year 4 have been investigating databases in our Computing lessons. We used Purple Mash to find out about records and fields. We use the 'sort, group, and arrange' tools to organise the information and created a range of graphs and charts. 

Year 4 got dramatic today. We role played alternative endings to 'The Balaclava Story' by George Layton, that we have recently read. One of the characters is a boy who steals a balaclava because he wants to be like his friends. Can you spot this character in our dramas?

For Maths day, Year 4 found and measured some suitable places to put our new playground marking. Then we became designers to create our own designs.

We have been using our sewing skills to make some Christmas stockings for enterprise week.

Enjoying some games in French lessons, one of our favourites is one dice, one pencil.

Today we used ipads to explore a branching database to identify different minibeasts. The database sorts minibeasts by asking yes/no questions. 

We enjoyed our visit to Hall'ith Wood, the home of Samuel Crompton, who we have been learning about in our History topic.

We wrote acrostic poems using the word Remembrance to remember all the soldiers who have and still are fighting to make our lives better.

In Design Technology we have been practising our sewing skills. We have had a go at running stitch and over stitch.

As part of our English unit on Magazines, Year 4 have been exploring a range of magazine pages and identifying what types of non-fiction text they contain.

We have recorded a video of our performance of William Blake's poem 'The Tyger'. Please click on the 'Children' tab and visit the Video Resource Centre to view our performance. 

After being in the different drinks for a week, we have got our eggs out to see how they were affected. We were very shocked by some of the results and hopefully this will help us to make good choices about what we drink in the future.

In Science, we are investigating how different drinks affect our teeth. We need to leave the eggs in the drinks for a week to see if our predictions are correct.

We enjoyed a visit from Laura from Asikara designs. She spoke to us about her career as an African fashion designer and about different African fabrics. She also let us try on some of her designs.
