19.3.20- Year 4 have created positive messages in different languages for our windows!
LIPA Wider Participation team came to visit Year 4 again this week. This time they helped us to create sashes and crowns ready for our Bollywood premier in a few weeks.
12.3.20- We have been showing off some of our talents in Year 4 this afternoon. We have some very talented dancers and musicians!
9.3.20- Year 4 travelled down the corridor to the Year 5 classrooms to play ‘don’t tip the ship’ learning about buoncy, materials, surface area, uplift and also about how cargo is carried around the world. Without ships the world would be a very different place.
6.3.20- As it is World Book Day, Year 4 decided to write a scramble story! The machine chose 'write a mystery' 'a flying' ' wizard' 'who loves to solve puzzles'. The stories are brilliant. Check out some of Penny Lane's work today!
5.3.20- The 'eggsperiment' was a success! Year 4 continued their experiment this week in Science to find out the effects of different drinks on our teeth (we used eggshells as a comparison). Ask your children to tell you more about the results. YUCK!
4.3.20- This week, Year 4 took part in a Bollywood and street dance themed workshop with the Wider Participation team from LIPA. The children thoroughly enjoyed themselves and got very hot and sweaty as they put all of their energy into learning the dance moves. This is a sneak peek to get you ready for the premier in a few weeks!
3.3.20- Our Year 4 children were given the task of providing an information sheet for our potential new teachers and the winners would help with the shortlisting. Yesterday, these 4 wonderful writers were taken over to Big LIPA to receive their prizes, collect the applications and even have some tea and toast with Mrs Lucas and Mr Parker.
27.2.20- In Science, Year 4 carried out an eggsperiment today to find out the effects of different liquids on teeth! We will check on these next week to find out the results.
26.2.20- To immerse ourselves into Indian culture, we explored a variety of Indian spices, food, music and scenes. It was super spicy!
13.2.20- Year 4 stepped into our new music room today as a whole year group. You will be impressed with their musical vocabulary alongside their singing and the use of an abundance of instruments.
12.2.20- We were so impressed with the final outcome of Year 4's project, 'When in Rome'. The children have worked incredibly hard in school and at home and showed off their new found knowledge to their visitors at our Roman Exhibition.
8.1.20- Year 4 were visited by Roman soldiers. We learnt all about Ancient Rome, the invasion of Britain, the armour worn by the soldiers, training for battle and the hilariously funny way Romans built their toilets.
26.11.19- Penny Lane started working towards the million steps challenge and ran 65,000 steps this morning! Well done Penny Lane.
19.11.19- Thank you for those who attended the Rock and River interest meeting. We have attached the powerpoint for those who were unable to attend. A letter will shortly be going out to you about school trips, including information on how to pay for our residential.
14.11.19- Year 4 had some amazing visitors this morning in the form of owls. We learnt so many fun facts and upskilled our scientific knowledge of animals and food chains. All children had the opportunity to ask questions and hold a small owl. Thank you very much Croxteth Hall Farm.
10.10.19- World Mental Health Day! Year 4 have been focusing our minds with 'calm brain' after a busy morning at St Georges Hall.
10.10.19- Year 4 took on the roles of Captain Explorer, Creative and Performer all in one morning when we went on our trip to St George’s Hall this week. The children loved putting themselves into the shoes of a film director, sketching inside and outside then performing on the steps of the iconic Liverpool landmark.
4.10.19- Year 4 have been playing the drop zone game in Basic Maths this week to improve their multiplication skills. To play the drop zone, you will need dice, drop zone template and a running record. We are getting faster at our times tables everyday by playing fun games like this!
3.10.19- Year 4 have been very lucky this week as Harry Potter, Hermione Granger and Ron Weasley stepped into our classroom to be questioned over their time at Hogwarts. The actors from Year 5 took on their roles so well and answered all of our questions ahead of our writing next week.
Year 4 have been celebrating Roald Dahl alongside their new science topic, states of matter. They have carried out an experiment to make dream jars using different solutions and for super scientific knowledge we discovered how reactions can create bubbles. Did you know that bubbles are made from a gas called Carbon Dioxide?
