Celebrating Our Success

In Year 4, we love it when we can share successes and achievements.

Harrison Tolley has been awarded 4B's Star of the Week, congratulations Harrison! Keep up the good work. 

What a brilliant morning Year 4 have had! We had a visit from Martin, Stuart, Wayne and Kevin, who are fire men in West Midlands Fire Team. They taught us all about being safe if ever in a situation where a fire was, how to call and ask for the fire service, hazards in and around the home and how to protect ourselves in an emergency. 

We learnt a quick and easy technique if we were ever to be around a fire. 'Stop, Drop and Roll'. We even gave demonstrations on how to do it. 

Maths in the past!

 

During this half term, Year 4 have been focusing on counting to 100 in Roman Numerals.

The children had a fantastic couple of days using the concrete approach to physically create the number system that was once used.

From this, the children were able to reason and problem solve by applying their knowledge of Roman Numerals. 

Guided Reading

For this half term, we are looking at Philip Pullman's 'The Firework Maker's Daughter'. We will be continuing to answer questions based around the book, making predictions about what we think might happen and finding quotes from extracts of the text to use as evidence. 

Can you hear me?

 

For our Science topic this half term, Year 4 are focusing on how sound is made. Why don't you have a go at the experiment shown in the picture?
