In our topic, UK and Europe, we have been beginning to locate countries and capital cities. We have used the Atlases to help locate the counties before placing them onto our maps.

In art, we have been moulding beads using clay in order to create Egyptian jewellery! We had to make a selection of beads and an amulet too. We have then painted them and joined the beads together to complete the necklaces.

Year 4 have been working hard on drawing facial features over the last few weeks and now we have completed a portrait of ourselves!

We were very luckily to have a special science event in the science dome on Friday. The children were taken on the journey through the digestive system, learning technical names and the process of food digestion. At different stages, we also took part in science experiments to show what happens and we were amazed to see how long the intestines are!

Year 4 talks Brexit!! For our guided reading, we have discussed a news article about Britain leaving the European Union. After many many questions from the children, we answered questions about the text in our books. The children showed great interest in learning about this topical subject.

For anti-bullying day, we became superheroes for the day! We did activities during the afternoon linking to what bullying looks like and how we have an impact on other in how we treat them.

In science today, we did an experiment to test if all solids melt when heated. We tested an ice cube, Haribo sweet, a Jelly Baby and a chocolate button. We found that the ice cube melted quickest followed by the chocolate button (which stayed in its shape as it melted). The jelly sweets didn’t melt in the same amount of time but we could see changes beginning to happen as they became stickier and softer.

This afternoon, Class 4 have been creating classification charts as part of our longitudinal study. We had to think carefully about closed questions and the different significant features of the creatures we have seen in the woodland area on the field.

Today (6th November) Class 4 went on their trip to the Basingstoke Discovery Centre library, to support the work we have been doing about the book ‘How To Live Forever’. The children were given a tour, shown how the library works and were set challenges to find different books in the children’s area. We also looked at some of the oldest books in the library before reading our class text. It was a lovely experience!

We have done some beautiful art work during this half term. We have been focussing on dragon eyes to link in with our English writing project about ‘How to Train Your Dragon’ We have also used water colours to look at colour mixing and how to create different tones of colour ready for our next project - Egyptian portraits.

It’s the slime olympics! We have been testing the flow of liquids (the viscosity) We made predictions about which we thought would be the quickest to flow through thei tube. In Class 4 our prediction was water, washing up liquid, custard and then ketchup as the slowest. We we almost correct... the children were definitively surprised by how long it took for the custard to flow through!!

At the start of this year, we received a letter from Miss Charman asking us to monitor the wildlife in the forested area on the field as part of our longitudinal study. We acted straight away and have already been outside twice to find out which creatures there are living outside at the moment. We will be monitoring this throughout the year to observe the changes.

We had a brilliant time when Ufton Court came to visit Year 4. This has linked into our Creative Curriculum topic of Ancient Egypt. We dressed up in costume, played Egyptian games and learnt about the process of how to mummify a body. There was plenty of audience partitcation as everyone took on a role in the procession around the hall!

In maths, we have been looking at related/associated facts for multiplication and division. We have learnt about using the skills of multiplying and dividing by 10 and 100 to help us do this...
