In Year 4, we are learning about sounds in our Science lessons. We made these string telephones and as one person talked into their cup, the vibrations travelled down the string into the other person’s ear.
In Year 4’s Science lessons, we are learning about sounds. We looked at how sound vibrations could be demonstrated using some visible evidence: a drum skin with grains of rice, a plucked elastic band, the tip of a vibrating tuning folk placed in water and a ruler clamped to the table and taped at one end.
Some important information about coming back to school in September.
Why not have a go at this digital escape room with a Harry Potter theme.
On Thursday 5th March we celebrated World Book Day. This year’s theme was ‘Share a Million Stories’. We began the day by discussing the importance and benefits of sharing a story and who we could share a story with. The rest of the day was spent completing book related activities and completing a school competition. As part of the day we either wore our pyjamas or dressed up as a book character, we were very impressed with the children’s efforts and enthusiasm.
Year 4 children worked really hard to make slingshot cars. First we made the chassis using lolly sticks, dowelling and wheels. We needed to add a hook and make a slingshot. Next we designed and made the body of the car, thinking carefully about air resistance. Finally, we raced and evaluated our cars.
As part of our sculpture topic, Year 4 worked in groups to create some wonderful bottle top sculptures.
Year 4 children worked hard to develop a range of mark-making techniques in charcoal to create different textures and effects. Children used the charcoal in different ways to express the meaning of as many words and phrases as they could in an abstract way.
In Year 4 we created our own sculptures using inspiration from the artist, Sokari Douglas Camp. We created words describing how we feel at school, we then had photographs taken with our words to become part of our own sculptures.
