Amethyst Year 4

Welcome to Amethyst Class

2018-2019

Hello and welcome to Year 4. This year our teacher is Miss Scott. We love learning and like to do our very best work every day.

July 2019

Year 4 were super lucky and had BOSCH Rexroth in this week. The class took part in a range of engineering activities which included looking into hydraulics. They worked well in teams and even had competitions in launching rockets across the playground using force.

Please see the pictures below. 

June 2019

This afternoon, Year 4 had great fun learning all about electrical circuits. They worked in small groups to create simple circuits and investigate what happens when they add and take components away. We even made a whole class circuit!

Please see the pictures below!

June 2019

Year 4 have already been super busy this month and are now fully underway in their ICE zone topic of Home and Away. Recently, they researched some European composers and then created their own composition using notations. 

  

May 2019

Year 4 were lucky enough to have some artists come and visit this month. The children were asked to create a leaf-cutter ant colony using a range of media. Their art is currently being displayed at the local library. Have a look at the photos below. 

April 2019

In their RE lessons, Year 4 have been learning all about Judaism. They have already learned all about the founder Abraham and the Ten Commandments. This week, they were investigating synagogues. They discovered what they are used for and who works in one. They even got the chance to create their own one. See the photos below.

Year 4 have been working with our resident artist Mr Cornell. They learned all about drawing geometric shapes using hexagons and then moved onto using the computer program 'Sketch Up'. On this program, they used their knowledge of 3D shapes, axis and computers to create incredible images. Have a look at the photos below.

March 2019

Year 4 had a wonderful day at the Fitzwilliam museum in Cambridge. The staff there were so impressed with their amazing Egyptian knowledge and the members of the public were incredibly complimentary on their behaviour. Well done Year 4!

March 2019

For World Book Day, the children dressed up as their favourite book characters. We had a great day reading our books and making our own bookmarks. 

March 2019

This week, Year 4 had their residential to Grafham Water. Over the three days, the children took part in numerous adventurous activities such as sailing and climbing. They worked incredibly hard as a team and tried their best every day. Well done Year 4. 

February 2019

This week, Year 4 have been working super hard on their sketching skills. They have been learning how to draw an eye and create a reflection within it. I am super proud of them, their drawings are wonderful.

 

January 2019

Yesterday in science, Year 4 had the chance to make their own telephones. They had to investigate how they worked and understand how the sound traveled to their ears. Have a look at the photos below. 

January 2019

Today, Year 4 had some furry visitors! In English, we are learning all about the book 'Pugs of the Frozen North' so we thought it would be a good idea to arrange some lovely pugs to come and see the class. The children (and teachers!) had great fun and now the children will be writing their very own pug fact-files!

 

 

December 2018

Today, Year 4 finished their science 'egg-speriment' and were amazed by the results. We found out that the coke, fanta and vinegar destroyed the eggs shells. We concluded that these liquids would affect our teeth in a similar way if we didn't look after them! Their reactions were great!

December 2018

Year 4 have been busy scientists this week. We have been learning about our teeth and how to keep them healthy. We are performing a whole class experiment on how sugar can affect our teeth. Instead of using our teeth, we are using eggs! We have placed the eggs in five different liquids and we will see which liquid has the worst affect on the egg. Watch this space for the 'reaction' photos on Monday!

December 2018

Today, Year 4 worked in small groups to create their own digestive system. They used a range of household objects to mimic the actions of food being digested. The children had great fun

November 2018

Year 4 have recently been learning all about the animal world. We worked as a class to create our own classification key using some of the children in the class. The children then worked on creating their very own keys all about vertebrates and invertebrates. 

 

October 2018

Year 4 have had a super busy first half term. The class have been enjoying their class text 'The Iron Man', and have produced some wonderful work based on this. The class have also been super busy in their maths lessons and have now secured their understanding of addition and subtraction. Next term, they will be moving onto multiplication and division!

 

Recently, Year 4 took part in their autumn DLPT sports event. The class showed wonderful sportsmanship and had a great day. 

 

 

September 2018

Welcome back to another school year! Over the first few weeks, we have all been super busy getting to know our new teacher and finding all about what fun activities are planned for Year 4. Please ensure you have a look at our Curriculum Newsletter for an overview of the upcoming term (find this in the link below).

 

Creative week

Year 4 had a super busy creative week. They got to know their new teacher, had fun sharing their summer stories and were very creative with their art. We created our very own 'Birch Tree' art in the style of Monet.

To say thank you to the children, I arranged a little end of the year tea party this afternoon. The children also had the chance to open their time capsule letters from the beginning of the year. It was nice for them and myself to see how much their writing had developed! Some children even read their letters out loud.

June 2018  In Year 4, we have been learning all about electrical circuits. We have learnt all about the different components of a circuit and in particular, the use of switches. This week, the children investigated different insulators and conductors. They worked in small teams to discover which materials would allow the circuit to continue working.

Summer 2018 Curriculum newsletter

May 2018 

This half term, Year 4 have been very busy (as always). Have a read below.

 

Topic/ICE zone 

This term, our topic is based on the continent of South America! The children are lucky enough to have their own walk in rainforest!  

 

English 

The children will be studying several topics over the next term, beginning with ‘Stories from different cultures’. The children will be exploring stories from different countries and cultures and will be creating their own descriptive work from these.

Year 4 will also be writing their very own journals based on the book, ‘The Great Kapok Tree’. They will get into the role of the character who faces difficult decisions.  

 

Maths 

In Year 4, we will again start the term by looking into fractions. We have investigated equivalent fractions and will soon be moving on to finding fractions of given numbers. The children will also be revising their written methods for addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. They will use tens frames to help with their counting.
