Year 4 - Mrs Dodson and Mrs Portwine
Welcome to Year 4
Murton Park - Roman Day!
We had such a good day learning about life in the Roman Army - we even fought off a Celt!!
Askham Bryan Wildlife Park
Year 4 enjoyed a lovely day out at the wildlife park, learning lots about the different species of animal that live in the rainforest. Even though this was a topic we covered in lockdown, we didn't want the children to miss out on a great day!
Flex Dance - Military Mix-up
For our Dance block in P.E, we are so pleased to have Ciara back from Flex Dance. Linked to our Roman Topic, we are learning a military mix-up routine. It is looking amazing already!!
Just before half-term, Year 4 took part in a special Halloween orienteering activity. They had to solve ten clues and go and find the control points in the correct order and then stamp their special control card. It was a great way to get outside, get active and have fun!
West Leeds Activity Centre - Our Outdoor Adventure Day!
What an absolutely amazing day we had! SO MUCH fun! We learnt all about Bush Craft - making our own fires and roasting marshmallows. We raced around in go-karts (including some serious off-roading!) and took on the assault course and water slide! Absolutely brilliant!
Post Lockdown Coding!
As part of our computing curriculum, we have been using our new Chromebooks to get to grips with Espresso Coding. We are becoming experts at using different block coding combinations!
Mayan Project Day
Year 4 had a fabulous day today (13.10.20), being Mayan builders! They created temples, pyramids and even Pok ta Pok stadiums. They were all very proud of their constructions.
Place Value using Nature
We used our Outdoor Classroom as a base to explore the nature area, looking for items to represent HTU. The children generated a 2 or 3 digit number and used leaves as 100s, twigs as 10s and stones/acorns as units. It was a lovely way to add to our place value topic in Maths.
Rocking the Roman Numerals!
We have been learning about the Roman number system recently in Maths, and Mrs Dodson found this brilliant song for us to learn. It's really helped the numerals stick in our minds!
Picasso - The Blue Period
Our Artist study this half-term is Pablo Picasso. We are currently learning about his blue period and how his personal mood influenced the colours and tones he used in his work. The children used water colours to investigate how many different shades of blue they could create.
We Love to Read
Year 4 have been chosen to update our school library display board this term, so we've gone for the theme, 'We Love to Read'. The children were given the challenge of finding an unusual place to read a book, and they have not disappointed!
