Welcome to the Year 4 page!
Our teachers are Mrs Rogers and Mr Warren (4RW), and Mr Crane (4C), and we are supported by Miss Prudden and Ms Casian.
On our page, we will update you with all of the exciting learning that takes place in Year 4.
In History, we will be learning about the Anglo Saxons and their invasion of Britain, and in Computing, we are learning about programming our own quizzes! In Science we are finding out about sound and electricity and are looking forward to carrying out some fascinating investigations.
In English, we are really enjoying reading Iron Man and we are using it to inspire our own writing. In Maths, we have been exploring place value and we are looking forward to using what we know to learn about calculations.
Keep an eye on our section of the website as we move through the year!
This week, Year 4 have been experimenting with sound. We made cup and string telephones and tested whether the sound travelled as well in a variety of conditions.
Children in Year 4 have been learning some basic first aid with Mrs. Cottle. Here they are practising the recovery position.
We made some straw ‘pan-pipes’ during a recent Science lesson. We wanted to find out how we can make sound with air and how we can change the pitch using straws of different lengths.
We were lucky enough to watch M&M’s production of ‘The Wizard of Oz’. We thought the acting and scenery were brilliant!
What a wonderful visit from Mark the storyteller. He kick started a special project with East Pool Mine all about Mining Monsters. Year 4 will be creating our monsters this week with the help of two visiting artists.
We made the most of this stunning day and went on a sound safari. We are going to use the sounds to create an onomatopoeic poem.
‘We had a fabulous day at East Pool mine learning how to do pinhole and digital photography. We took pictures and worked with students from Falmouth International School of Arts to produce a fantastic presentation of our photographs. We also had the wonderful opportunity to develop pictures from scratch in a dark room- a fascinating day!’
We had an amazing time on our residential to Eden, we did workshops on the environment and really enjoyed exploring the whole site.
‘This week we have been developing our painting techniques. We have been learning about the famour local painter- John Dyer and experimenting with colour.’
Year 4 have been adding detail to their dragon heads this week. We are hoping to have them finished after our exciting visit to the Royal Cornwall Show. We will be using our learning from circuits to make the dragon’s eyes light up. Watch this space!
‘We had a fantastic time exploring at The Royal Cornwall Show on Friday. Presenting for BBC Spotlight, dancing with Bodmin College students, cycling to make smoothies and meeting ‘The Gorilla from Eden’ were just a few of the wonderful things that we got up to!’
Keeping children safe in school is the most important role we play. If you have any serious concerns about any child, please speak to Mrs Walpole or Mrs Stoddern.
