Year 4 had a fantastic time at Four Kingdoms. The staff said how well behaved they were, and how fabulous they were at encouraging one another to do well in the team activities. Well done, Year 4 - you have done yourselves proud.

On Thursday 3rd May, Year 4 were visited by Gemma from the charity Dog’s Trust. We were using Maths to see how much money you would spend on a dog in a year! We learnt how important it is to take good care of our dogs and any other pets. It was incredibly fun because our investigation gave us lots of different answers. She showed us a pet’s microchip and dog essentials such as a collar, lead and toys! We all really enjoyed the morning (not least Mrs Atkinson and Mrs Floyd!). The children produced some amazing thank you cards too! Thank you very much, Gemma!

Here you can see the children learning the Legend of Robin Hood. In Year 4, we have been using Talk for Writing where we learn the story using actions, retelling it using pictures (you can see the children here working fantastically with their partners here to create story maps). In this way they are learning a rich and exciting vocabulary to use when retelling this and other stories. The children are loving this unit of learning and producing wonderful results!

We had a fantastic time on our trip to Maidenhead Heritage Centre. We got to complete three interactive activities:

1. We learnt how the Tudors wrote with quills and got to write a letter to Queen Elizabeth I.

2. We made our own Pomanders, which Tudors used to keep away bad smells.

3. Using measuring and construction skills, we put together broken Tudor cooking pots and found out how big they would have been.

 

The children had a wonderful morning. The hands-on experience brought their learning to life. One of the children even commented, "It was like being in Alice in Wonderland. I got to see and touch so many things I would never have dreamed of!" A volunteer at Maidenhead Heritage Centre also told the Larchfield teachers they were very impressed with our children's behaviour. 

 

Our Year 4s really did themselves proud!

Mrs Kearney and the other teachers at Larchfield had a very late finish this week as they were going through the entire library collection and making sure it was at its best for our children!

 

Some of the books were selected to be given out to children to take home and keep. Year 4 were extremely excited to make their choices!

 

Thank you very much Mrs Kearney for a lovely gift.

Making Music!

We had an awesome time making musical instruments based on our learning in Sound. The children will be writing sets of instructions for how to make them - watch this space for some great examples!

Here are some pictures of us solving a Maths investigation together, where we applied our knowledge of times tables and place value.

You can see how much we enjoyed working as part of a team and sharing our mathematical ideas!

In Year 4, we started our journey into the science of sound by playing different musical instruments to see how the sound worked.

We discovered that all musical instruments produce sound by vibrating in different ways. 

We hope you enjoy the photographs - they really show how enthusiastic we were when we were making these discoveries!
