Fitzwilliam Museum November 2018

We had a fabulous time at the Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge. As well as visiting and finding out about all things ancient Egyptian, we also had a chance to investigate one of the art galleries. We investigated some Dutch art through sharing 'The Story of Jan'.

During the ancient Egyptian sessions, the museum staff complimented us on our excellent behaviour and broad knowledge of the subject.

Here are a few photos of our day.

Maths Week

In Year 4, the children used their Maths lessons to solve a week-long problem about designing a funfair. They used their knowledge of area to plot out a funfair and then had to work out how much it would cost by calculating money. After that, they had to work out how much it would cost per day at their funfair and therefore how much they would need to charge their customers to get in!

W/C 15/1/18

The first couple of weeks of the spring term seem to have flown by and we have already got a lot of learning under our belts.

In our English work we have been using classic stories and poems (such as Alice in Wonderland and The Owl and the Pussycat) as inspiration to help us to write playscripts.

 In science we have started to investigate the properties of solids and liquids.



Just a reminder that Mr Sinclair has replaced Mr Clark and will now be taking our P.E. lessons. These sessions will take place every Friday instead of the previously timetabled Thursdays!

Ancient Egyptians at the Fitzwilliam Museum

We had a successful trip to the Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge this week. It helped round the term off nicely and the class really did the school proud with the way they behaved and approached their learning.

We saw some amazing artefacts and plenty of mummified remains to get excited about. The class can tell you the different animals that were preserved in bandages and on display.

Here a few photos to give you a flavour of the time we spent in the Ancient Egyptian galleries.

Science Week

We have had a week full of science investigations and exploration. The week kicked off with an exciting assembly led by Mrs. Hardie who performed a range of 'wow!' experiments at the front of the hall. Year 4 have carried out some tree classification, an egg experiment and then a materials investigation to find which one made the best tea bag. We are finishing the week by making rockets.

Thank you to all the children who had a go at the science activities at home.

W/C October 2nd 2017

Our learning in Year 4 continues apace this term. We have had a particularly interesting week, with French day on Monday (where the children mixed with different year groups to carry out a range of fun French activities) and preparation for the Church Flower Festival. We used our knowledge of Greek myths to tell a journey/ quest story which we illustrated using Aboriginal dot paintings which consisted of symbols chosen to represent the different parts of the tale.
