    Forgiveness

    Posted by Mr A Hart
    We spent today thinking about forgiveness. With Easter coming up and looking at the Christian festival and the meaning behind it, we decided to think about, "What is forgiveness and what things are unforgivable?" As you can imagine, this provided some weird and wonderful answers and sparked an interesting debate in the class.

    Searching safely for information

    Posted by Mr A Hart
    Today, Year 4 have been using search engines safely. First we were provided with a range of questions we could ask a search engine to answer for us. Next we used this skill to research information linked to European Capitals. The children researched a range of Cities from Prague to Moscow to London. Found out some amazing and wonderful facts about these wonderful places, ready to write Non-Chronological reports about tomorrow.

    Sound vibrations

    Posted by Mr A Hart
    Year 4 learnt about sound today and how it travels. After this they spent some time completing a range of things on laptops, instruments and eventually glasses and water. We discovered how pitch and tone can be effected and how a variety of things can have an impact. We also got some sound advice (pardon the pun) from Tim Peake explaining why sounds can't be heard in Space!

    Purple mash coding

    Posted by Mr A Hart
    After a brilliant lesson on Friday, the children have continued with their coding. They have been free coding showing what type of things they can create and make. It was brilliant to see the children applying a variety of skills to fix bugs and create images. Ask the children to explain the things they have done! We even found time to complete a quiz about Europe during the lesson using this brilliant tool. Superb Year 4!

    Shrove Tuesday

    Posted by Mr A Hart
    Today the children got to learnt a bit about the history of pancake day and the meaning behind the Christian festival of Easter. The children appreciated the things Christians give up for lent as a sacrifice to show respect for the 40 days and night Jesus spent without food or water. The children then talked about the things they would find hard to give up....I'm pretty sure a few went home and had a few pancakes too.

    Posted by Mr A Hart
    The children explored the various mountains ranges and rivers of Europe. The children had opportunity to explore the areas they wanted to do, varying from the alps to the Brecon Beacons. Explored size and the countries they cover. Children are starting to get into Europe... but for how long?

    It's oh so quiet!

    Posted by Mr A Hart
    In Year 4 we have been investigating sound. We explored the school to see where the noisiest place was and the quietest place. We discovered that Year 5 were in fact the noisiest ones. The quietest of places was at the front of the school. Some very observant children were also keen to point out that if our class were also included we'd probably be the loudest. Anyway we have been introduced to the sound of silence.

    Welcome Back to Term 4!

    Posted by Mr A Hart
    Cannot believe we are already into Term 4. Halfway through and still so much to do. This term we are going to take the opportunity with Europe being in the news and the county's imminent exit from the European Union to learn about Modern Europe. We will be using geography skills to explore the area and find out all about our friends from the continent (hopefully avoiding the politics). Today the children investigated and researched areas of Europe through famous Train rides and finding interesting facts.

    Time travel day

    Posted by Mr A Hart
    Year 4 had time travel day on Friday. The class teacher was from the past and used modern technology so that the children could make silhouettes in the style of pictures from the Georgian era. Then the children performed their plays based on the curing of small pox by Edward Jenner. The whole school got together and shared their experiences in assembly at the end of the day. Well done year 4.

    Internet Safety Day

    Posted by Mr A Hart
    The children today have been learning how to keep safe on the internet. We have discussed how to search for things safely online, followed by acting scenarios out and discussing what could have been done different to support a friend. The children are very tech savvy and it is important we share ways to stay safe in this day and age. I'm positive that the children could even share a few tips and tricks for adults at home!
