Welcome to Year 4 Blog

 

What is a blog?  …“Blog” is an abbreviated version of “weblog,” which is a term used to describe web sites that maintain an ongoing chronicle of information. A blog features diary-type commentary and links to articles on other Web sites and can focus on one narrow subject or a whole range of subjects…

Each of our year groups will have access to their own class blog where the pupils will share their learning and will be able to develop their writing skills as they will be writing for a wider audience.

Do feel free to comment on the children’s writing and ideas, one thing to be aware of is that all comments will be moderated before going live on the site .

Thank you for your support and happy blogging!

Describing Narnia

Year 4 have written some beautiful descriptions based on our class novel, ‘The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe’.  We made miniature versions of the setting so we could see, feel, smell and hear what Narnia would really be like.

Well done Alexis, Lewis, Freya, Lucy and Connor.

Lush Workshop

We finished our Potions topic with a bang! Lush, Bury, came into class to teach us about how they use chemistry to make their products. We learnt about their ethics and values, how they use chemicals and we all made a bath bomb to take home. Have a look:

George’s Marvellous Measuring

This week we linked out maths work to our class novel, ‘George’s Marvellous Medicine’. We used careful addition strategies to add two quantities of liquids to make our own potions.  We had to make sure we had exactly the right amount.  Once calculated, we measured our potions carefully to see what new colours we could make.

Work from Yahya, Jospeh, Jasmine, Charlie and Rachel.

Forward in Faith Trip

On Tuesday, the children who completed the Sacramental Programme last year went on a special trip to the Schoesnatt Shrine.

Our day was titled ‘The Amigo Experience’ and all our activities focussed on how we can start our new lives after First Holy Communion as good friends, just as Jesus taught us.

We made body maps and filled them with qualities that a good friend needs to have.

We had a quick change race and thought about how easy it is to change our clothes, but how hard it can be to change ourselves inside.  We wrote about the qualities we love in each other.

 

We role played the story of ‘The Lost Coin’.

We finished our day with a blessing in the shrine.  We had a wonderful and enlightening day and the recounts the children wrote about their experiences were excellent.

Year 4 Writing

Year 4 have been reading and working on ‘George’s Marvellous Medicine’. We made our own medicine in class and the children described each ingredient really well.

Year 4 wrote some fantastic pieces about the medicines they would make for Grandma.
