Year 4

Welcome to Year 4 !

Spring 2

Following our successful 'graffiti spelling animations', Year 4 were inspired by the artist Banksy to create our own spelling graffiti for our 'connected curriculum' display.

Year 4 Outdoor Learning

As part of our Science education, Year 4 have been having regular sessions outside with Mrs Owens to make links with the environment. The children have collected data about the number of living things in a specific area, made comparisons with developed/undeveloped land, studied types of trees and leaves, carried out experiments and much more!

 

Most recently, Year 4 were visited by the newly hatched chicks from Reception. Check out some of our investigations below.

Year 4 Movies & Animation

So far in Year 4, the children have had the opportunity to use computer technology to create their own films and animations. Check out our iPad movies – not bad for a first attempt! While there, have a look at the ‘stop animation’ created by some of the pupils in ‘After School Film Club’.

 

The following photographs show the children creating Graffiti style spelling animations using ‘I can animate’. Look out for our video footage (to be uploaded soon).

Year 4 Roman trip to Chester
During Autumn term, Year 4 children had the chance to visit Grosvenor Museum where they learned about life in the Roman army. The children dressed in a Lorica Segmentata (body armour made of metal strips), wore a Cassis (a helmet) on their head and held a Scutum (a shield) as they marched around the streets of Chester. Led by a Centurion, they chanted SIN SIN SIN DEX SIN (Left, left, left, right, left) in time with their feet.
 
The children also practised battle formations and tactics above the remains of Chester’s Amphitheatre and learned about the ruthless Gladiator fights which took place there. Finally, they headed back to the museum for a workshop where they studied artefacts.
It was a wonderful day which brought our history topic to life.

Year 4 Brass

In Year 4, the children are very lucky to be given the opportunity to play their own Brass instrument! Our fabulous teacher, Mrs Hough, specially chooses a P-bone, euphonium, trumpet or cornet at the start of the year for each child.

 

Since they started learning in September, Year 4 have now performed two songs at St. Michael in the Hamlet’s Spring Concert, sang with the Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra and performed for the Lord Mayor. What a spectacular achievement! See some photographs from our lessons and performances below.
