Year 4 Class Blog

Week beginning 20.6.22

Year 4 (Year 4) on: Year 4 Class Blog

Welcome to week 3!

I hope you all had a restful weekend after last week's intense events of and inspection, two assessments and a Filey visit!

This week is not as intense but it is still fairly busy and will require us to search faithfully for excellence as we always should!

Here's the timetable with the week's details:

timetable 20.6.22.docx

We will be working on creating our own seaside themed board game this week. We can make them as simple or as complicated as you like, but remember you have to write instructions for them on Friday so don't over complicate it.

Our numeracy will be moving on to Geometry (shape). We'll be focusing on angles and 2D shapes throughout the lessons.

We have some inference lessons planned for our comprehension lessons, as this is an area we a still struggling in as a team.

Our topic lessons include art- using watercolours to portray mood- and a comparison of data of Wath and Filey's land uses.

We have our Gospel assembly Monday afternoon (don't panic you can read your parts from the backed paper we'll give you.)

Like I said previously, not as intense, but still busy!

Let's have a good week team!

Aquatic organisms

Year 4 (Year 4) on: Year 4 Class Blog

Leading into our science on animals and their habitats, we created aquatic animal species using our Forest School skills. Look at these incredible pieces of art!


Nature Art

Year 4 (Year 4) on: Year 4 Class Blog

Building on from last week's experiment with different leaves and the colours they produce, we created some nature art.

Some of us took inspiration from nature, others from our Ancient Egypt topic and some from our favourite book characters. We even used some charcoal from past fire circle lessons to create some contrast!

It's amazing what amazing art you can create with things just in your garden or local park!


Awkward Algorithms

Year 4 (Year 4) on: Year 4 Class Blog

Y4 did an 'unplugged' ICT lesson this week. We created an obstacle course to get through using simple commands to direct our partner's through the maze. The algorithms were scripted prior to our attempts, so often required teams to debug their algorithms before attempting again.


Natural colour palette

Year 4 (Year 4) on: Year 4 Class Blog

In our Forest School session this week, Y4 worked on creating a natural colour palette from different weeds and leaves. We also used the bright sunlight to further our science knowledge of light and shadow from opaque objects.


Below are the timetable and homework for this week.
