What do we get up to in Y4?

Welcome to Year 4!

After a fantastic Autumn term, with many exciting trips and experiences, we have now started the Spring term! During this time, will be exploring the past and thinking about the future. By the end of the term the children will have designed and made their very own invention after carrying out research.

We can't wait to show you what we make!

An excited Y4 team  



Autumn Term: Shiver Me Timbers!

Last term we had a swashbuckling time learning all about pirates. We found out all about life on the ocean waves and what it would have been like to live on a pirate ship. We also found out about life under the waves when we went to Birmingham Sealife Centre.

At the end of the term, we loved making our hard tack biscuits and bumbo (non-alcoholic of course!). We put on a feast for parents with everything we made as well as mouldy cheese (blue cheese) and dried meat.


Spring Term: Back To The Future

We started the term by making time machines in samll groups. They are now on display in our classrooms - feel free to come and have a look!

Over the next few weeks, we will be following the adventures of Marty McFly and Doc Brown as they travel through time looking at famous inventions from the past. We have already been to Ancient Greece and the Victorian times. Who knows where will will end up next?

Soon, we will be designing and creating our own inventions to showcase at the end of the term. We can't wait!




Summer Term: Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs

This term, our learning is based on food and weather. On the first day back, we found our classrooms had been covered with giant food. This inspired us to compete against each other in our very own 'Field Court Record Breakers' event where we had a day filled with food based challenges. We had fun balancing and holding a variety of food and also building the tallest towers of plastic cups, Oreo cookies, Skittles sweets and even bananas.
