Welcome to Year 4!
Do you have any ideas for this page? Why not let your Teacher know!
Year 4 began the year by learning all about Oceans for our ‘Polar Express’ topic. Over the week we investigated the implications of sea levels rising. We used search engines to find information to create a fact file on different ocean creatures. Children used atlases to locate the five oceans. We enjoyed using water paints to create an ocean setting for our collage creatures. We hope you enjoy looking at our work.
Year 4 Allotments
Every Thursday this half term, children in year 4 have had the opportunity to learn and develop a range of skills. They have the opportunity to understand how different fruits, vegetables and plants grow at different times of the year.
Year 4 have prepared beds to plant new seeds and bulbs by removing weeds and watering the soil, to make it more moist and nourished ready for the seeds to grow. Children have used a range of tools to help them with their gardening skills. They have tasted pumpkin soup and made apple bird feeds.
Year 4 Brum Brum Let’s Go
To launch our Topic in September, Year 4 walked to the Walsall Canal to develop an understanding of what canals are and what the main purpose of them maybe. To begin with children were unfamiliar and showed little understanding but soon found out, canals are man-made and were used in the past to transport goods and waste to different places in the UK.
During this Topic, children also found out about famous people from Birmingham. The most famous, being John Cadbury and The Lunar Society.
