Welcome to the Year 4 Blog!


Welcome to Year 4 Blog! 

We have had a great first couple of weeks back in Year 4 and have wasted no time in getting stuck into our learning.

I have been very impressed with how eager the children are to learn and challenge themselves in their learning. 

On our Year 4 blog you will find out about:

Don't forget..... P.E is on a Tuesday

The children have made their Christingles in preparation for next week's special service!

We are geographers! Using an atlas and maps, we have been locating the countries that were in the Roman Empire! We were shocked to find out how many countries were under the Roman's control. 


Look how fabulous our Roman mosaic designs are! We cannot wait to make them!

Today we have been learning about internet safety. The children have made posters and rap lyrics to showcase their learning!

The children have loved dressing up as Victorians and as have their teachers!


What an incredible day we have had! We have transported back into the Victorian times and have had a day living the life of Victorian children. 

The children have been foraging for resources to create a piece of natural art! 


The children have been looking at the difference between solids and liquids in their science learning. They have been using vocabulary such as 'compressed' and 'volume' to describe the differences!

Thank you to Lauren for bringing in a Victorian Penny to show the class!

The children have continued their Victorian invention project this week. They have been creating final product designs, advertisement posters and scripts so they are ready to present their new inventions to their classmates! 


Year 4 have been busy creating and completing a fair test. The test the children carried out was to find out whether an object is a conductor or an insulator. Ask them to tell you their results! 


W/C 28.09.20

Year 4 have been making circuits! Ask them what you need for a simple circuit! 


Our Victorian product inventions. Year 4 have taken inventions from Victorian times and tweaked them so they are more exciting. Soon we will be presenting them to our classmates to see if they will be a hit!


We have been on a preposition hunt around the classroom! Some were above us and some were underneath objects! 


Check out our English polished products. These are information texts about the lives' of Victorians. We had to make sure we used: Homophones, apostrophes to show possession headings/subheadings.

 W/C 21.09.10

Science has been really exciting this week! We have been learning all about the dangers of electricity in an average household!


We are really enjoying this half term's theme! We have been in forest school creating Victorian-styled patterns, using natural resources as paint. 

W/C 15.09.20

The children have been sawing, sanding and painting to create their own Victorian-styled slate board. We will be getting them out to use on our Victorian-themed day!


The children have been busy decorating their new classroom with pictures of themselves... with multicoloured hair!


Mr Eckley was very pleased when he received his first Victorian themed photograph from Lottie! We might have to install a chimney in school so she can sweep it!


Tobi looks fantastic! Thank you for sharing your lovely Victorian photo.


I cannot wait to see how clean Alfie is going to keep the classroom in September!
