Year 4 Blog

Very exciting first week back!

We have played lots of math games and the children have loved the art and writing we have done based on the book ‘Tuesday.’

  • Sports Week

    Year 4 had a fantastic time during sports week. We tried loads of different sports and activities, while developing our team work skills.

  • CSI and Gelli printing at St Helen’s

    We had a fantastic day out at St Helen’s school. In the morning we helped to investigate a murder, using our best detective skills and St Helen’s forensic equipment.

    After using the clues to solve the crime, we spent the afternoon in the art workshop. We used a technique called Gelli printing to create some amazing pieces of art.

  • Welcome to the fair!

    Today Year 4 finished making their Chair- o- plane rides. We used a motorised pulley to make our chairs spin.


  • Fairground rides

    In DT we are building our own Chair-o-plane rides. We used our knowledge of circuits and have learnt how to saw, sand and use the glue guns. They are now very close to completion!

  • Ukueles

    This term Year 4 have been learning to play Three little Birds on the ukulele.


  • Easter Hat Parade

    We’ve had great fun for Easter with a bonnet parade walking around the school, an egg hunt to find letters and make words, and lots more fun activities.


  • Art based on poems

    We learnt the poem Trees on Parade by Valarie Bloom and used pastels to create some art work based on the poem.

  • Jan 18th – Year 4 home learning

    Goblins The Magic Goblin

    Year 4 have been working hard to create an ultimate guide to goblins.


  • Home Learning

    It has been another few weeks of fantastic dedication from Year 4.  Well done everyone, keep up all the good work.  Your Viking projects are looking great and we continue to love seeing what you’ve been getting up to with your family.

  • Year 4 at home

    Year 4 have continued to work hard at home.  It was Florence Nightingale’s birthday recently and so they have been researching her life and work, made lanterns and even made silhouette drawings. They have learned all about VE Day and decorated their homes for the celebrations. Whether it is the home learning set work, jobs at home or just having family time together, the children continue to shine.  Keep it up!
