Welcome to Year Four

Keep an eye on our blog for updates on what we are doing this year.

Year 4's Blog

All arrived safely

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

The Year 4s all made it on their bikes to Kibgswood this morning.


Using ICT in science

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

Our science lessons are full of interesting but difficult words. In order to better understand this vocabulary, we created a glossary with the help of QR codes around the classroom.


Feast of St Joseph

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

We celebrated the feast of our patron saint with the help of Father Evangelist.

 


World book day

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

We celebrated World book day (postponed due to last week's weather) today. It was great to see so many characters comes to life off of the pages of our favourite books.


The running stitch

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

As part of our freedom topic, we are learning some simple sewing techniques. We are hoping we can make use of these skills to make our very own patchwork quilt at the end of our project! We did well with our first practise attempt!


Understanding character traits

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

To describe a character's personality in detail is quite a tricky task. So today we defined some useful adjectives which will allow us to use them to describe characters we come across in our reading and real lives.


Amazing acrobatics

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

The KS2 gymnastics team wowed the school in today's award assembly. They demonstrated their incredible talents through a variety of rolls, flips and balances despite having members missing due to their commitments to the equally impressive VEX IQ team. Well done girls!


Animal adaptations

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

How have animals adapted to their environments? This is what we tested this afternoon. After looking at a few different species and their adaptations we recreated the walrus' blubber adaptation in this experiment. Amazingly, when we wore the blubber glove we couldn't feel the cold water! What a fantastic adaptation to have in a cold environment! What other animal adaptations do you know about?


Woodhead Mountain Rescue

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

In the afternoon of our 'mountain day', we welcomed members of the Woodhead mountain rescue team. We learnt about these amazing volunteers and the skills they have, the equipment and vehicles they use and how they utilise specially trained animals to find people... No matter how much you hide! A huge thank you to the team for their time and expertise, to make a wonderful afternoon!


Climbing to success

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

As part our Winter Olympics and mountain topic we had a very special visit from the 'just climb' group. They brought their huge climbing wall for us to try our climbing and mountaineering skills on. That combined with the weather made for an authentic mountain climbing experience!
