Year 4 news...
Design Technology- Edward Tulane
We have really enjoyed our Literacy topic all about the book ‘The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane’. We were therefore extremely excited to find out we were going to be making our very own Edward Tulane teddy in DT. We created our own template and used our sewing skills to create our very own little Edward!
Year 4 hot seated King Hrothgar this morning, asking him how he felt about Grendel attacking his Warriors and people. Fantastic questions to help us write a persuasive letter next week!
We’ve been thinking about healthy eating, Mrs Porter helped us to pick some of the vegetables which we had grown in our middle yard planter. There was plenty of garlic and onions which we added to carrots and potatoes and used to make a delicious vegetable soup. We developed our peeling, chopping and weighing skills through this DT work and had to work really well as a team in the kitchen.
In art lessons, we painted watercolour birds, inspired by a poem we studied from ‘The Book of Hope’ on National Poetry Day. We have sketched Viking longships and dragon symbols. We then printed our Viking symbols onto fabric using the block printing technique.
In Science we have enjoyed learning about our teeth and our digestive system. We carried out an experiment, using egg shells, to observe the damage that sugary drinks do to our teeth – we were quite shocked by the results! We also made our own sets of teeth from plasticine – looking closely at the shape and size of each tooth. We also got the opportunity to clean and floss our teeth – supervised by Mr Yeowell and Miss Ludgate – we have never cleaned them so thoroughly!
In maths, we have been using equipment to help us solve some tricky place value challenges. We get lots of time to discuss our work together. Practical maths has also helped us to understand new concepts. We are always busy learning our times tables – we know how important these are in all aspects of maths work.

Under Mrs Porter’s watchful eye, the children in Year Four peeled, chopped, measured and stirred! The result was a pan of delicious soup. This proved to be a lovely winter warmer!
Year 3 and 4 RSPB Big National Bird watch! We mainly saw Pigeons, Starlings and Magpies. We enjoyed a hot chocolate and used binoculars!
Fun Fitness Friday
What an exciting day! We will definitely be relaxing over the weekend. We have enjoyed a day full of exercise and fun. We can’t wait for the next Fun Fitness Friday!
