Year 4

A Light-bulb Moment!

Today in year 4 we were experimenting with conductors and insulators. We had great, educational fun experimenting with circuits to see which materials would help or hinder the brightness of the bulb. Take a look at our pictures below!

 

Taste-buddies!

Today both year 4 classes had a fantastic day, as they got stuck into the science of food and how we taste, thanks to the wonderful science workshop with Fizz-Pop Science!

We turned sweet icing sugar into sour sherbet, and measured how the change in flavour affected our taste-buds!  We also learnt the 5 different areas of taste, sweet, sour, bitter, salty, and umami!

Amazing Amulets

Year 4 made some beautiful Ancient Egyptian inspired amulets last week. We looked at the symbols of Ankh, the Eye of Ra and scarab beetles. Take a look at some of our fantastic designs below and see if you can spot your own!

A Great Start!

Welcome to Year 4!

Sapphire: Miss Bradford with Mrs Dawkins.

Blue: Miss Stevens with Mrs Osborne.

Our first half term has been fantastic so far, with the children (and staff!) settling in really well. We had a fabulous fundraiser for Jeans for Genes in September, raising over £340. Thank you all so much for your hard work and donations!

We’re all really looking forward to our Ancient Egyptian workshop on the 17th October, it should be a fun, educational day.

Don’t forget: To dress up on the day, and to support us with the small contribution towards this we’ve asked for through Parent Pay.

 

Busy Busy!

We have had such an amazingly busy time in year 4. We were fund raising for our chosen charity, Centrepoint. Together with year 1 we raised £707! Well done everybody. Last week we not only had our trip to Hampton Court, we also put on a brilliant drumming performance. Both classes performed fantastically and their enjoyment really showed. Well done for all of your hard work year 4!

Hampton Court Palace

Just a reminder that we are going to Hampton Court Palace on Wednesday 12th July. If you haven’t given permission for your child to go then please return the form as soon as possible. The cost of the trip is definitely worth the experience! Children will be able to immerse themselves in Tudor life with a workshop in the kitchen. We have been really enjoying learning about the Tudors and I know that the children are looking forward to the trip.

International Week

We have had a fabulous week at school learning about Germany and Sweden. we have even had the chance to taste different foods from both countries. A highlight of the week was the dance workshop where we were taught different styles of dancing. Performing our dances to the school was nerve-wracking but a lot of fun! We also liked having some parents join us to see what we had been doing.IMG_4590.JPG

 

Swimming

Just a reminder that this week (week beginning 20th March) is the last swimming session for year 4. We have been very impressed with the progress made by the children and hope they have enjoyed their lessons.

Attendance Award!!!!!

We are so proud of blue class who have won the attendance award two weeks in a row for 100% attendance!!!!!!!! What an amazing achievement.

Busy, busy, busy!

We have had a very busy two weeks in year 4. Last week both classes showcased their drumming skills in a performance to the school and the parents. I’m sure you will agree that they were amazing! We are looking forward to the next concert already.

The Easter experience on Tuesday was brilliant. We learnt so much more about the Easter story and we even got to join in! The staff at North Cheam Baptist Church were fantastic and the children were very enthusiastic.

Easter Experience – Reminder

Don’t forget that year 4 are going to North Cheam Baptist Church on Tuesday 28th February in the morning. Please make sure you have given your child permission to come with us on this trip. A note in the diary is sufficient. Year 4 have attended the Easter experience for a few years and it is an important part of their religious education. Thank you.

Year 4 Drumming Performance!

On Thursday 23rd February Blue and Sapphire class will be showcasing their drumming talents. All parents are invited to attend the concerts on this day. Blue class will be performing at 9.20am and Sapphire class will be performing at 10.20am. We hope to see you there! The children have worked extremely hard and have learnt multiple rhythms. We are very proud of them!
