Our Classes

Year 3 Year 4 Year 5 Year 6

Year 4

Sound Science

 

In science, Year 4 have been testing which materials would best muffle the sound of an alarm. 

 

          

 

   

 

Trip to Legoland

 

Year 4 had an amazing day out visiting Legoland in Windsor.  They enjoyed exploring miniland, trying out the interactive attractions and riding the rides.  They even had the chance to test their driving skills on the L-Drivers driving course.

 

 

 

 

 

                   

 

 

 

 

Sound Science

 

In Year 4 we have been looking at sound. The children explored how we hear, and each experiment tested how different mediums transport sound. 

 

 

 

 

 

Warwick Castle Science Fair

 

On Friday 24th March, year 4 visited and took part in the Science Fair at Warwick Castle. Here, they participated in many activities, including making their own slime and creating and launching rockets. They also had the opportunity to watch many science shows, learning lots about different scientific concepts. A great day was had by all!

 

 

  

 

 

 

 

Science Week - Making Toothpaste

 

In Year 4, children made their own toothpaste using cornflour, glycerine, bicarbonate of soda, salt, peppermint flavouring, blue colouring and a small amount of water.  Once their toothpaste was made, children tested the following:

 

 - If it removed plaque?

- Did the paste stay on the brush?

- How did it smell?

- Did it have an attractive colour?

 

To test if their toothpaste removed plaque, a circle was drawn in permanent marker onto a tile. If they were able to brush away the permanent marker (plaque) it had worked! 

 

          

 

        

 

 

 

 

Easter Cakes

 

Year 4 have been busy making Easter Simnel Cake with Mrs Goss as part of the Erasmus project. The children had great fun decorating their own individual Simnel cakes with yellow icing and adding in the 11 eggs to represent the 11 disciples. They all really enjoyed this activity, including eating the cake complete with chick and mini eggs.

 

  

 

 

 

 

Christingle Tradition

 

Having visited Coventry Cathedral for a Christingle concert, and having enoyed learning more about this Christmas tradition, year 4 returned to school to make some Christingles themselves. Christingle means "Christ's Light" and it is used to celebrate Jesus Christ as the "Light of the World". Christingles are made up of different parts, each one being there to remind us of something. The orange represents the world; the candle reminds Christians of Jesus who they believe to be the light of the world; the red ribbon goes all round the 'world' and being the colour of blood reminds Christians that Jesus died; the four cocktail sticks could have either of two meanings, the four seasons or the four corners of the world; the sweets (or sometimes dried fruit) remind Christians of God's gifts to the world including kindness and love.

 

 

 

 

Ancient Egypt Topic

 

To complete their Ancient Egypt topic the children painted cartouches. A cartouche is a name plate, usually oval with your name written in the middle, that ancient Egyptians had attached to their coffins. The cartouche was to make sure that after you died your two souls - Ba and Ka - could find their way back to your tomb at night.

 

 

 

 

 

Seeing The World With Google

 

Year 4 was visited recently by a Google Expeditions Pioneer Programme team. The team was showcasing the Expeditions virtual reality app for the classroom. The app enables teachers to take their classes on virtual field trips.  The children were enraptured by a virtual tour around Egypt and Space, and they were able to see the treasures inside ancient Egyptian pyramids, and the wonders of the solar system and milky way.
