Year 4 have been learning how to write kenning poems. Can you guess what each one of these excellent kennings is about?
As part of our whole school Diwali day, Year 4 spent time learning about why this is such an important celebration for Hindus. They learned the story of Rama and Sita, created rangoli patterns and made their own Diwali lamps.
As part of our topic, It's Electric, we have been investigating circuits. We looked at the components needed to make a circuit and what happens when the circuit is not complete.
Well done to all the contestants who represented their house teams in the Boundary Spelling Bee. You all did fantastically well!
School Council Elections
Year 4 have been voting for the candidate who is going to represent their class on the school council. The candidates had to give a speech in class before we all cast our vote in the hall.
WOW - It's Electric!
To introduce their new topic, It's Electric, the children in year 4 had a great time investigating electricity. They used snap circuits, wires, batteries and even balloons!
Take a look at some of our learning experiences from 2016/17.
Our year started with a visit to Blackpool Zoo. We had a fantastic time and learned lots of facts about animals and their habitats. Nitro Neil from Mad Science visited us in November to introduce our topic, Shock Horror. We had a great day learning about electricity and circuits and even got to use a van der graaf generator! We were also lucky enough to be invited to Blackpool Aspire Academy to make our own light up Christmas cards in their science labs.
Throughout the year we have worked with Fit 2 Go from Blackpool Football Club. They taught us how to have a healthy lifestyle and the benefits of regular exercise. Learning about maps took us to Stanley Park to carry out field work where we had to use maps and compasses to navigate around the park without getting lost!
Most recently we visited Lancashire Science Festival at the University of Central Lancashire. We had a great time learning about food resources, sound and how Disney films are animated.
We have had a great time in Year 4 and can't wait to see what learning experiences await us in Year 5.
