Problem Solving and fractions


 Year 4 investigated fractional triangles and equivalent fractions in Maths on Thursday. We were set a challenge to divide the complex mixture of triangles into thirds, sixth and ninths. The children also had to create fractional wall from lego pieces to show which fractions were equal to each other.

Summer dance

This year for our summer show our theme is ´Summer´. Year 4 are dancing and singing to George Ezra´s ´shotgun. Here is the link to practise the dance and song words:


Creating a fan for an explorer


In Science, Year 4 created a circuit that could power a fan and a light for an explorers tool kit. We investigated how the voltage changed when adding new components in the circuit!

Series and Parallel circuits


In Science, Year 4 became electricians and were given the challenge of wiring a two storey house with a light on each floor. The circuits had to be parallel and have two switches. All the teams successfully created a range of circuits and houses. 

Well done! If you want to revise parallel and series circuits here is a video:

Conductors and Insulators




Year 4 tested a range of materials to see if they were conductors (allowed electricity to flow) or insulators (stopped electricity). We found the best conductors were metals!

Electrical Circuits

  
 Year 4 were set challenges to predict and investigate which circuits would light up the bulb. They found out the importance of all the components in the circuit connecting together.

Celebrating World Book Day




 We paired up with Year 1 to read Alien´s love Underpants. In groups we created our own rockets, innovated the story and created brilliant Aliens (with their own description).

In the afternoon, we read our favourite books together with the younger children in our ´Rocket chill out zone´.  Unfortnately the aliens stole our teddies so we had to search for them all around the school.

 Everyone had a fantastic day celebrating reading!
