'Learning together for a better tomorrow'

Y4B

It's our last day in Year 4. We have had a fantastic year full of fun and lots of new and interesting things to learn! Have a great Summer and don't forget to keep reading over the Summer!

Welcome to Year 4B!

We are going to have a fantastic year. smiley

We have so much to learn and lots of exciting activities to do.

Already we have celebrated Roald Dahl's 100th birthday with an activity day in school. Take a look at our movie trailer and photos to see what a brilliant day we had.

We are now back in our old room. But it has been completely transformed! Hopefully we can keep it looking pristine and tidy for the rest of this term!

This week was the last week of our maths centres until after Easter. We have learned a lot while we worked on these activities.
This week we are looking at instructions. We were trying to find out what the common features of a set of instructions would be. Can you tell what types of instructions we looked at?

Today we made jam sandwiches and then tried to write a set of instructions for Ms McBride to follow! It didn't work out very well! We forgot to write down some of the steps and Ms McBride ended up putting the jam and butter on top of the bag of bread!

Year 4 Visit Palace Stables To Learn About World War Two

Year 4 Visit Palace Stables To Learn About World War Two 1

We learned about the allies and axis powers, rationing and air raid shelters from Paul

The Air raid Warden told us what it would be like if we had been evacuated during WW2

We met a US Colonel who taught us how to use a cypher to work out a coded message and how to hold a rifle!

In the old school room we made labels and identity cards so no one would think we were spies!

We have been learning about the Solar System in class.  First of all we had to find out the names of all the planets we worked in groups to try and sort the planets into an order.  

 

We learned a mnemonic poem to help us remember the order of the planets.
