On Monday, Year 4 had their own hockey tournament. A PE teacher from Biddick came to help us to improve our hockey skills and we then played several games against each other. We all had a great afternoon. In English, we have been learning to write a narrative based on a video called ‘The Lighthouse’. We have included excellent fronted adverbials and descriptive vocabulary in our stories. In Maths, Year 4 have been learning to use the column method of subtraction to subtract two four digit numbers. In Geography, we have continued our focus on water and have been comparing the water usage and supply in the UK to Kenya.

This week in Maths, Year 4 have been learning to use the column method of addition to add two four digit numbers. We have also been writing newspaper reports in English and in Geography we learned about the process water goes through to be cleaned before it comes out of our taps. In Science, we have been exploring melting and freezing points of materials. We even got to make ice cream in our Science lesson without using a freezer! We had a sealed bag of strawberry milk which we then placed inside a bag of ice and salt. Then, we shook the bag for five minutes and we had created ice cream! We discussed how the salt lowers the freezing point of ice which caused our milk mixture to freeze. Take a look at use making our ice cream below.

This week in English, we have explored newspaper reports and their key features. We will be writing one of our own next week based on the ‘The River’ text we are continuing to read. In maths, we have been introduced to negative numbers. We have been learning to continue sequences counting backwards past zero and can identify which of two negative numbers is the largest. In music, Year Four have enjoyed learning to play the Ukulele with their music teacher, take a look at the pictures of us in action below.

In Science, we have been learning all about states of matter. We have explored the properties of solids, liquids and gasses and we demonstrated their particle arrangement. We also carried out an experiment to discover whether all solids would melt at the same temperature, we got to melt chocolate, butter and ice. In Maths, we have been learning to count in multiples of 6, 7 and 25. In English we have been continuing to read our book ‘A River’ by Marc Martin and we have all been working very hard to write a diary entry.
The core value this week was supportive and this was awarded to Isabella.
The Head Teacher’s Award was awarded to Katie B for amazing effort when writing a diary entry in English.
The mathlete of the week goes to Noah!
