Year 4's Blog

Attractive fish

Year 4 (Year 4) on: Year 4's Blog

basing their colours on real life examples Y4 painted their clay fish to make them bright and interesting. We also started looking at creating 3D looking bubbles to accompany our fish in our topic books.

Translating to the outdoors

Year 4 (Year 4) on: Year 4's Blog

Year Four translated to the yard today to make the most of our glorious weather. We used the number square as a graph to plot and translate coordinates before using this knowledge in our numeracy books.

Colour sensing

Year 4 (Year 4) on: Year 4's Blog

We pushed our robotic skills even further today. After coding our crossing river game on scratch, we brought the code to life using our VEX robotics. We coded a colour sensor to tell our robot to stop before entering the blue river. Many teams were successful!

Year Four Forest school

Acting the part

Picnic by the river

Year 4 (Year 4) on: Year 4's Blog

Year 4 had a picnic by the River Dearne this afternoon. They also carried out field work to measure the size of the river and noted the plants and wildlife around it.

Pop- Up Sweet Shop!

Year 4 (Year 4) on: Year 4's Blog

The Pop-Up Sweet Stall was a huge success. Thank you to all KS2 children and staff for producing delicious treats to sell. The process allowed many of our children the chance to see the enterprise side of the sweet shop, calculating cost and selling price to ensure a sale but still making a profit.

Remember, eat sweets in moderation and always clean your teeth at least twice a day!

Brilliant booklets

Year 4 (Year 4) on: Year 4's Blog

Inspired by the beautiful work of Y5, we attempted our own explanation booklets today.

We edited an explanation for earlier in the term using our new explanation knowledge, added a spoonful of creativity and produced these impressive booklets. We even impressed Mrs McLaughlin with the care and pride we had in our work. Well done Year 4!
