Welcome back!

I hope you had a lovely New Year and Christmas break. Spring Term has already been very busy for Year 4, here is an insight into what we have been learning to date.

In Literacy, we have been learning about the purpose, audience, language and structures of poetry for writing. We have written our own poems about attending a magical circus and London weather.

 We think our poems may even be better than the ones written by Shakespeare himself!


In Science, we have been looking at different states of matter. We had a go at turning a solid object into a liquid. We did this by melting chocolate, then refreezing it to make it hard again! We learned that solids are denser than liquids because their molecules are closer together.













In Maths, we have been learning about decimals. We have been investigating how to compare decimals. We were even able to place these decimals on a number line!













In Art, we have been creating portraits of ourselves using a variety of materials.

These examples were made using collage from magazines.


 Dates you need to know:

Year 4 Assembly is on Friday 2nd of February

Over the last few weeks we have been working together to create our own interpretation of our school values and visions. The children have come up with amazing ideas on how to represent them and have created there own posters in groups. 


We have been learning about democracy when we organized real campaign and elections for our Class President. We listen to every candidate's speech and they were all brilliant. Our Class President for this half-term is now Isabella. 


In Maths, we have been revising our times tables through a card game that made it a lot more fun !

In English, we have been designing our own Palace made of sweets and chocolate on paper. We then have swapped our written plan with someone else so that they can draw our palace for us. We quickly realized that we needed to give more details to our description if we want to have what we imagined in our heads to come true! It is fun to be an designer and an architect!

The activity : Draw my palace



Year 4 have been super busy getting used to their new class and learning about Roald Dahl. They have even made themselves some fancy pencils!
