Year 4 has had a great week filled with opportunities to design, investigate and actively participate!
In Science, they have planned and carried out an investigation, building on their existing skills of fair testing to find out how fast different liquids move. They thoroughly enjoyed getting their hands ‘dirty’ and completed learning of great quality.
In PE, they enjoyed yet another fantastic session with Coach Ben, putting their bowling and batting skills in practice playing continuous cricket. What runs!
In English, we carried on with our Stitch Head narrative and worked on our descriptions.
In computing, the children continued designing their Scratch projects whilst during drumming, we learnt the second pattern of our West African song.
We also introduced our last History unit of the year, the Tudors. Children knew a lot already and enjoyed learning about the details of the War of the Roses.
On Friday, the children joined Fr. Shaun, parents and the Church community to take part in the Blessed Sacrament procession. Thank you Fr. Shaun for the lollies, it was a lovely occasion.
Have a wonderful weekend,
Ms Varga and Mrs. McNamara
Please see your Home Learning bellow:
Please log onto Spelling Frame and practice your spelling words before testing yourself. Also take the time, to complete 2 activities on Read Theory and practice your multiplication and division mixed facts on Hit the Button.
In the next 2 weeks, I would also like you to complete a Project Based Research to support our History unit of the Tudors.
Please create a non-chronological report using all features of the genre (heading, sub-heading, paragraphs, bullet points, diagrams, labels, captions, maps, keys) to present information on one or more of these areas:
- Food and drinks in the Tudor times
- Tudor weapons and jewellery
- Free time in the Tudor era
These links might be useful (please ensure you use them with adult supervision as some of them contain adverts)
Please be prepared to present your learning, either hand written, printed or on a pen drive by Monday, 12th July 2021.
Enjoy your research!
