Year 4 - Mrs Dodson and Mrs Stanton
Silent Sound Walk
In Science this half-term Year 4 will be learning all about sound. We began our topic by going on a silent sound walk around school. We moved to different areas of the school and listed all the sounds we could hear. We discussed the loudest and quietest areas around school.
During our topic learning all about the Anglo-Saxons and Vikings, the children designed and made an Anglo-Saxon brooch. They used clay to make their brooch and once the clay was thoroughly dry they painted them using metallic paints.
Year 4 have been lucky enough to have a cricket coach in PE, they have learnt lots of new skills and have really impressed Andy the coach and Mrs Dodson!
Skeleton Fashion Show
We worked in groups to make a human skeleton using masking tape and bin bags, We labelled the skeletons using the scientific names we had learnt and then we had a skeleton fashion show where someone from each group was chosen to model what we had created.
In Science, Year 4 have been learning all about the skeleton and movement. We started by trying to put together a skeleton. We then looked at common and scientific names for bones and we worked as a team to construct an accurately labelled human skeleton. We also looked at how our spinal column works and we made models to show how the muscles in our body work in pairs.
