A message from Miss Atkin

A message from the Year 3 and 4 teachers

Hello Year 4,

 

I hope you are all keeping safe during these times. I am missing you all very much, it is strange going into school without seeing you all in our red classroom! 

 

I can see that lots of you have been busy on Purple Mash and TT Rockstars- please continue to this hard work! On our class page you will find links to lots of websites and activities for you to do at home. I am setting weekly maths challenges as well as a number of different weekly activities and challenges that you can get involved with. I have posted a few pictures below of what I have been up to. I will also be posting weekly updates and would love to hear from you!

 

It would be lovely to see some of the work that you have been doing, so please email me with any pictures or videos of your activities. Similarly, if you need any help with anything or have any questions do not hesitate to ask! 

 

Here is a reminder of my email:

Hopefully it won't be long until we are all back together again!

 

Stay safe,

Miss Atkin

We have been working scientifically to investigate how circuits work. During this lesson, we were working in groups to construct a variety of circuits using bulbs, wires, switches, buzzers and motors.

Classification Keys

We have been learning about how things can be classified. To introduce the children to this idea, we have been experimenting using sweets and have discussed how they can classified in different ways.

Area

We have been investigating 'area' of different shapes. Here, the children are working practically to find out the area of these shapes using counters. 

Fractions

We have been exploring fractions of amounts. During this lesson we did a carousel of different practical activities to explore fractions this included using play dough, fraction cards, pizza toppings and creating fraction walls.

English

 

In English, we have been looking at the book, Henry's Freedom Box: A True Story from the Underground Railroad. We studied and discussed pictures of Henry and created some expanded noun phrases, using some interesting vocabulary to describe him.

We looked at how Henry might be feeling throughout the story. The children used microphones and asked each other questions about the story and answered in first person as if they were Henry.

Design Technology

 

Textiles 

During our DT lessons, we have been learning how to sew. We have been experimenting with different methods of stitching and have been practising how to thread a needle as well as tying knots. We then used all of the skills that we have learnt to create these amazing cushions!

Mechanisms 

We have also been learning about mechanisms. To begin, the children have been exploring the word 'pivot' and used split pins to create rotating arms and legs for our characters.

Art

We have been learning about plastic pollution and how it affects sea life and other living creatures. Class 10 have created a collaborative collage piece using unwanted pieces of plastic packaging to create this amazing underwater scene.
