On Monday, Year 4 met some wonderful animals belonging to the visiting mobile farm.

Year 4 making noise!

 

This week in Science we have been making guitars! We had to make guitars that created different pitches. We began to investigate how to do this and came to the conclusion that we needed to have a variety of lengths and thickness of rubber bands. We then reflected on our sound topic and thought about all the new words we had learnt. We used these words to decorate our guitars. So not only do they create noise but they teach us too! Fabulous afternoon Year 4!

Mountains

 

Today we have been finding out about Mountains from around the world. We had to locate these Mountains using an Atlas and Google Maps. We then found some extra information about these Mountains and started to create a fact file. These will help us to create some Mountain Top Trumps!

Andy Goldsworthy

 

This afternoon we have been created some art outside! The children have been studying an artist called Andy Goldsworthy. He is an environmental artist from Scotland. This has inspired the children to create some of their own pieces! They worked very hard in groups and came up with some interesting titles. 

Trip to Leeds Sikh Temple

 

This morning was absolutely fantastic when the children visited the Gurdwara.  They were so well behaved, listened very well and asked a variety of questions about the Sikh faith.  The children were able to observe Sikh prayers in the main hall, eat langar (food) and also had an educational talk with Mr Singh who showed the children about the temple.  Below are some of the images from our trip.

Take a look at a few of the childrens' pieces below.

This week in English we will be exploring Play Scripts. We have been exploring features of a play script and have started to add our own stage directions. We will be uploading the children's play scripts to our Class Dojo App. Watch this space!

Great Alwoodley Throw Down preparation

 

Over the next few weeks at Alwoodley, the children will be getting their hands messy taking part in the first ever Great Alwoodley Throw Down.  Every class will be using clay to create a specific piece along of theme of "US".  Year 4 have been allocated "flat faces" and as part of our exploration and preparation for next week when we bring the clay into class, we used plasticine to practise modelling and completed sketches of our faces to explore different facial expressions.  Keep your eyes peeled for information about the exhibition later this term.

Year 4 love the iPads

 

In Year 4, the pupils are very lucky to use iPads frequently throughout the week.  We use them in a number of different ways.  Below are some photos of the children using the iPads in different lessons.

Switched On

 

Our new Science topic this term is Electricity.  We've been investigating at home as part of our home learning and creating circuits in class.  We have used cells, bulbs and wires.  Over the next few weeks, we are going to build on the basics we have learned to create more complex circuits and begin to include switches and buzzers too.  Watch this space for more Science posts and an exciting Design and Technology project, where there'll be a real buzz around Year 4.

Raging Rivers

 

Today we used an atlas to identify rivers from around the world.  The children found it interesting to see how an atlas worked.  Ask your children at home if they can name any rivers in Africa.  How did they get on? Let us know.

Tasty Computing

 

Within our Computing lessons, we have been exploring coding using Scratch and how we need to give the computer precise instructions.  To learn more about how much information we actually need to give a computer, we typed up a list of instructions for someone to make a jam sandwich.  After this, we worked in pairs pretending we were stubborn computers, following every instruction exactly.  Below are some of the photos of us doing this and some of the end results.

Getting wrapped up in Ancient Egypt

 

Year 4 followed a list of instructions to make a mummy! They then used this knowledge to write their own set of instructions.  They all really enjoyed this and worked really well together.

Yoga - Year 4 have been enjoying yoga this afternoon! They even learnt some Egyptian inspired moves!

Guilty or not guilty

 

Today, all of Year 4 took part in a court case.  Rock had been accused of killing Paper.  We had to discuss the evidence, question witnesses and then make our decision.

Amazing Art

 

This afternoon, Year 4 went on an Art Hunt around school and discovered lots of amazing pieces of art.  We took photographs using iPads and returned to the classroom to try and replicate some of the pieces.  Below are some images of the original paintings, how we worked together in groups and some of the final pieces.

Environment Week

Today we went on a visit to the local woods. The day was led by some very knowledgeable rangers! We learnt about the Seven Arches, lots of different wildlife and some local walks that we could go on. Ask the children to give their opinion and reasons for their favourite part of the trip. 

The Digestive System

 

We continued to take advantage of the lovely weather today and took the children outside this afternoon. We went outside and positioned parts of the digestive system on our bodies and even learned a mnemonic (way to remember) to remember where the food travels when we eat.

Active Maths

 

Today we took advantage of the lovely weather and went outside for Maths. We played a number of times tables games as well as having a mini competition. We split up into teams and used our fantastic team work skills to solve a range of problems. We impressed Miss Clarke with our problem solving skills!

3...2....1....ACTION!

 

Today in English we have been using our Drama skills to explore our new book 'The Day the Crayons Quit'. We thought about the characters feelings and what facial expression they may have. We then used these to make some fabulous freeze frames!
