Year 4

Warwick Town Walk

 

On Tuesday 6th February, Year 4 had the opportunity to walk to Warwick Town Centre to learn more about our local community as part of our topic for the Spring Term. We were taken around the town by 3 guides from the 'Unlocking Warwick' group. We learned lots of really interesting facts from our guides. We had a thoroughly enjoyable time, despite it being quite chilly!!

 

 

 

 

              

 

 

 

 

The Stars are coming out for Christmas

 

Year 4 have been enjoying rehearsing and performing their Christmas production.

 

 

Christingle Tradition

 

Year 4 were privileged to attend the Christingle Service at Coventry Cathedral.  We song our song 'Hope of Heaven'.  The Cathedral kindly gave every child a Christingle orange and candle to make our own Christingles back at school.

 

 

 

   

 

Making the Christingles in class

 

We discussed the meaning of the Christingle, the orange represents the world, the ribbon tied around the orange indicates God's loves wrapped around the world, the candle symbolises Jesus, the light of the world, the cocktail sticks and the sweets are symbols of God's creations.

Topic Afternoon

 

We had a wonderful selection of snacks at our topic afternoon. The children brought in lots of food they had made at home.

 

         

 

This amazing cake was made as part of our Egyptian project.

 

 

Thank you to all the parents who were able to come along to our topic afternoon and share in the childrens' learning.

 

 

     

 

 

Maths Investigations

 

Year 4 have been working really hard completing maths investigations.

 

 

 

  

 

 

What Is Democracy?

 

The theme for 4MJ's assembly was Democracy, everyone had the chance to vote which they

really enjoyed and we had fun telling them about it.

 

 

 

 

 

Ice Cream Surprise

 

We have again had a visit from Gallones Ice Cream Parlour.  We were given lots of different flavours of ice-cream which were all coloured yellow and had to try and guess the flavour. 

Mr Jacobs liked the Thai Green Curry best.

 

       

 

 

 

 

 

 

Erasmus Visit

 

Year 4 were taught games by our visitors from Hungary, they then took time to enjoy playing them.

 

        

 

     

 

We played a game where we pretended to be squirrels who were trying to find their way home.

 

 

 

 

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.
