We found out that the lines going up are called the warp and the lines going across are called the weft. We made tartan out of coloured card that we chose ourselves.

Researcing with ICT

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

We researched our new Scottish topic using our Popple app which allowed us to collect and organise our thoughts. We focussed on geography, traditions, folklore, history and Celtic heritage. 

Attractive fish

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

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!
