TOP TIP : You can practise on any device BUT it might be useful to use a keyboard, as we will be administering the test using one.

In Science we have been investigating changing states.


In our experiment we measured the temperature of ice cubes at various intervals throughout the day.

In Music we practised playing the Glockenspiel, creating a five note pattern for our partners to reproduce.

The glockenspiel or bells is a percussion instrument. It consists of pitched aluminum or steel bars arranged in a keyboard layout. 

The glockenspiel is played by striking the bars with mallets, often made of a hard material such as metal or plastic. Its clear, high-pitched tone is often heard in orchestras, wind ensembles, marching bands, and in popular music.

To end the week Year 4 took part in Mr Burke's Santa Dash. 

A rush to capture Santa's reindeers, christmas jumpers (but not the one's you were thinking of), a search for Santa in 24 devious locations and a final dance in class.


This week in Year 4 (WC 29th November 2021)


Our Afternoon Advent Activities started on Wednesday December 1st and will continue daily until the end of term.

Friday's challenge was to create an imaginatively decorated christmas cracker and write a joke to put inside.

We decided to only share one joke, so the surprise isn't spoiled, but to give you an idea of what's coming your way :

"Why did the giraffe cross the road?" ....... "Because he was hungry."

About Year 4 

Year 4 is an important year in terms of being the last year within Lower Key Stage 2.  This year your child will mature and blossom in readiness for their last couple of years in primary school before branching off to secondary school.  Children in Year 4 will spend time preparing for their Multiplication, Times Table Check which in turn, will prepare them for working towards their SATs at the end of the Key Stage.
