Year 4 show their creative side
In computing we have been looking at patterns and tessellation, and have been inspired by the work of Escher. Whereas he painstakingly created his designs by hand, we used a computer program to create out Escher inspired tiles.
Year 4 demonstrate impressive times tables knowledge
A team of Year 4 children attended the SSELP multiplication quiz at Prince Edwards and gave a hugely impressive performance. They reached the final and were ultimately beaten by Wybourn, despite the fact they didn’t get a question wrong all night! A huge well done to all of them.
Year 4 had a fascinating and diverse set of talks for careers week. First we met the firefighters from 'Blue Watch' and learnt all about the day-to-day life as a firefighter. This was followed by a talk from 'Animal Behaviourist' Chris who talked about his time spent working with dogs. Both chats were well received and the children had plenty of questions. Thank you to everyone who came along!
Y4 are inspired to write poetry
Year 4 have taken inspiration from their class text, 'The pebble in my pocket' by Meredith Hooper, and have written a poem about a dragonfly. This then further inspired them to discover more about this wonderfully elusive creature. How fantastic is that?
Y4 River Walk
Towards the end of the term, the year 4 children had an opportunity to put all of their hard work around rivers and the water cycle into practice with a walk along the beautiful Porter Brook. Starting at the source of the river, the children took measurements of the width, depth and speed of the water, as well as looking out for river features. What a beautiful (and educational) walk!
The Water Cycle
Building on our river walk earlier in the term, Y4 have been learning further about 'the water cycle'. Using the innovative 'Now Press Play' system, the children were each taken on a personal journey to find out more about this important natural phenomenon.
Y4 river walk
In Year 4 we have been learning all about features of rivers, so we took the opportunity to do a bit of field work and got out to investigate a river in Sheffield. We started at the source of the Porter Brook, near Ringinglow Road and carefully followed it's progress down towards the Forge Dam. As we went, we performed a number of investigations and spotted a variety of native flora and fauna.
