Welcome to Year 4 - Miss Platt.
Year 4's Newsletter Spring 1
In PE, we had a competitive game of bench ball. We used our ball skills, throwing and catching skills, communication skills and sportsmanship. After every game we shook hands, congratulated one another and cheered opposing teams on.
Can I convert between analogue, digital and 24 hour time?
We explored time by playing digital and 24 hour bingo, a time board game, analogue and digital clock dominoes, units of time and having a time scavenger hunt. We can also read bus and train time tables and measure the duration of time. We explored duration, elapsed time and money by role-playing a cinema visit!
What is trust?
In RE, we explored trust and how people gain and lose trust in others. We explored how trustworthy our learning partners were by completing a series of trust exercises. We then discussed how Jesus gained the trust of his disciples and discussed religious teaching and stories that convey Jesus' trustworthy nature.
Obtuse, acute or right angle?
We can label angles as acute, obtuse and right angle based on the size of the angle. We know that acute angles are smaller than 90 degrees. We know that right angles are perpendicular and are exactly 90 degrees. We also know that obtuse angles are bigger than 90 degrees but less than 180 degrees. Finally, we know that straight angles are exactly 180 degrees.
World book day
We had a great day celebrating books and reading. Here are some images of our work, our competition winners and our day of reading. We explored the book, 'The day the crayons quit' and wrote letters to our favourite crayon trying to persuade them to stay. We then read our much loved class text, 'Narnia'.
Area and perimeter
We were area and perimeter detectives! We were able to work out the area and perimeter of many items within our classroom by using the LxW formula and adding up all the sides.
Year 4's Mannequin Challenge at the Dewa Centre
Dewa Roman Experience
We had a fantastic time at Chester, Dewa experience. Here are some photos of our wonderful trip
Roman Children presentations
The children used a green screen to present research about Roman or Celt children. Some chose to write and perform a rap, some made a poster while some wrote and presented a news report. The children worked brilliantly as a team. We loved wearing our tunics and presenting our fantastic work!
We used junk model material to make Roman chariots. We explored chariot racing, design features and evaluated our products.
This week we explored Roman schooling. We had a look at Roman artifacts and learned a wonderful Roman song.
To aid our myth writing, Year 4 worked in groups to perform a transformation myth!
Solving Maths Problems in Year 4
We have been learning a Roman myth. We acted out the story and drew a story map to help us learn the myth. It was great fun. We can now recall the whole text!
