Reminder to all children

Can I please remind all children to bring in their reading book on Thursdays (except for free readers).  We are very lucky to have a volunteer reader, Mr Pressley, come in and listen to our children read every Thursday afternoon so it is really important that all children bring in their reading book on this day.

Thank you!

3D Shape Hunt

Over the past two days we have been investigating 3D shapes and their properties. We are really good at recognising and naming the main 3D shapes such as cylinder, cube and sphere. Whilst some of us stayed in the classroom using polydron to make 3D shape nets, some children went on a 'shape hunt' around school to see how many 3D shapes are around us every day.

Can you name these 3D shapes? How many faces, edges and corners do they have?

Fieldhead Carr Estate Agents: Would you like to buy a house?

Some of Year were buying and selling houses here.

What would your ideal house be like if you could buy any house?

A bedroom in a shoe box: Creating our mood boards.

We thought about colours and fabrics and items we would have in our ideal bedrooms.
We used all these ides to create our mood boards.

We used magazine cuttings and colouring pencils to create our mood boards.
What would you have in your ideal bedroom?


SEAL: New beginnings and the feelings we have

We worked in the school garden. We discussed a story about a boy called Sami. He was from a different country and had lots of mixed feelings about starting a new school in a new country.

We wrote down all the feelings we though Sami would feel.
What do you think he would be feeling?
What could he do to make himself deal with these feelings?

See our fantastic work on symmetry!

 Some of us classified shapes. We looked at how many lines of symmetry they had.

Some of us worked in pairs. We drew half a shape and then our partner had to draw the symmetrical side.
Everyone can now explain what a line of symmetry is!
Which shapes have lines of symmetry? How many lines do they have?

A big HELLO to our Quadblogging buddies!

Insulators and Conductors

Here is a Science game similar to the one we played last Friday. You will need to use you knowledge of electrical insulators and electrical conductors to help you. Can anyone tell me which material is a super electrical conductor? Let me know how you get on with the game! Miss Carr

Busy Day!

We have had another action packed day in Year 4.

In maths, we were learning how to sort shapes into Venn and Carroll Diagrams, using our own right-angle munchers to find out which shapes had right angles.

For our multi-faceted learning our activities included creating an information poster about a Hindu Mandir, and ordering houses through history.

What have you learnt today?

This week the focus school is Four Peaks Elementary School in the USA.

They have been doing a very interesting Maths activity involving biscuits...perhaps we could try something similar in our class, it looks like fun!

Please visit their blog and leave a comment by clicking on the comments box on the left hand side.

Year 4 Detectives!

I hope you've all had a fantastic weekend Year 4.  You worked so hard all week so I hope you've had a good rest ready for continuing with your hard work next week!

Year 4's very first blog post!

We have had a wonderful first week in Year 4.  We have enjoyed exploring our new classroom, and having fun with our challenge areas.
We have started our electricity topic in Science, and our Fieldhead Carr Estate Agent topic.
The children had lots of fun creating circuits using wires, batteries and bulbs.  We have also enjoyed starting our maths and literacy work.  Here are some pictures of us hard at work!

What have you enjoyed the most this week?
