Year 4 have been making landmarks from around the world. They have used their designing skills and then have made them using wood, glue guns and handsaws.

In year 4 we are learning about lots of different countries around the World. We have learnt that there are 7 continents in the world and 7 seas. The continents are Africa, Antarctica, Asia, Australia, Europe, North America, and South America. Our favourite continent is south America because it is hot.
In PE we have been playing Hockey. We have been learning how to stand, how to hold the stick, how to pass the ball and then block it.
In Computing, Mrs Sale told us about HTML which mean hyper text mark up language. This is what is used to make websites. We will be making a basic website of our film reivews. We also have a Google Classroom that we can use to help us to learn about HTML.
Year 4 have written newspaper reports about an invasion of slavers into an African village. They have carried out drama and interviews and used what was said to get a quote, which they could recognise as someone’s opinion. We included ‘facts’ from the story. Children wrote up their stories in their neatest, cursive handwriting. The final pieces are most impressive. Well done Year 4.
This half term year 4 are learning about William Morris and his art. William Morris like to paint pictures of nature.
In class we were given a piece of paper with three squares on it. Then we chose our favourite picture and drew it. Then we drew our picture on polystyrene which was really difficult. It made lots of holes which we then tried to join up. We then used the polystyrene to make a print. Some of the prints were good and some were a bit smudged.
It was great fun because we love using paints and making mess.

Year 4 went to Sutton School to take part in a ‘Gamelan’ workshop. It was to learn about Indonesian music. Although it was noisy, the children all learnt a song in Indonesian, practiced rhythms and beats and had a go on some spectacular instruments, including an impressive gong.
In Science, Year 4 have been looking at circuits and have managed to create their own working circuit. Some children then even managed to change components of the circuit to see if anything changed.
