It was (sadly) our last session with Emily and on Wednesday we visited the Earl’s Court Project Rooms. We saw our poems and collages of Normand Park as they had been placed in an exhibition in one of the rooms.
In addition to this, we started planning travel brochures for Egypt. We have used our knowledge of Ancient Egypt and laptops to gather information.

Whilst the country has been debating about whether Britain, Year 4 have been having a debate of our own – was there a curse of Tutankhamun or not?
Each table chose a side and, using sources for evidence, developed their argument to justify their opinion. On Wednesday, we had our BIG DEBATE and due their fantastic persuasion techniques, the against side won.
In Maths, we moved through division and on to fractions. Using skittles, we converted between fractions and decimals and by the end of the lesson we could do this with ease. We have asked you to recreate a similar task at home this weekend.

22 March – River Thames trip
What an incredible day we have had! Not only have Year 4 been lucky enough to visit Greenwich and the Cutty Sark, we also rode down the river Thames on the Thames Clipper.
Look how excited we were as the boat left Embankment ready to glide along the river.
As we floated along, we spotted some incredibly famous landmarks. How many can you name?
After an exhilarating journey, we arrived at Greenwich to be amazed by the Cutty Sark. Having been blessed by the weather, we walked leisurely to Greenwich park and ate our lunch with an incredible view of the river.
We returned to school at 2.30pm full of stories to share with the rest of the school and ready for a rest after our busy day.
Year 4 were very enthused to be reunited this week!
We packed in lots of learning about fractions in Maths and made sure that everybody was up to date with our class book Harry Potter. After lots of anticipation we finally met Ron Weasley and Harry reached Hogwarts for the very first time. It was great fun imagining what it would be like to be Harry as he saw the vast castle for the first time in our diary entries. Ask your children what they imagined when they read through the chapter.
In anticipation of our trip next week, we spent our Topic lesson comparing the Thames in the past and present day. From sources we discovered that the river is a lot cleaner now than it used to be although it is perhaps a little less fun. Did you know that the Thames used to freeze over and Londonders used to have great fun skating over it?
Here we are learning all about human impact on different habitats. Why don’t you tell your parents all about it? See if they have any more solutions to the damage that is currently happening to our Earth.

Enjoy your weekend!
This week we bring you news about Year 4 from two different locations. Whilst most of us were working away in class, a few others were in Surrey at PGL. Both parties had extremely exciting weeks.
Have you ever held a frog before? Well, some Year 4s were lucky enough to do just that when Wild Science paid SJL a visit. We were even brave enough to touch a snake!
Whilst all this was happening at school, the children at PGL were being just as brave. We abseiled, tackled a challenging obstacle course and trusted each other to guide us when blindfolded.
Both groups of children are so excited to share their weeks with the rest of Year 4 as well as the teambuilding skills that we have developed during our time away.
We have had the most fantastic week in Year 4! Not only was it science week, it was also World Book Day on Thursday too.
Have a look at the pictures below showing our fun packed week.
We loved inviting parents into our classroom for Science open morning. They helped us predict which substances would react with each other. Did you know that if you mix coca cola and alka seltzer you create a chemical reaction? If you don’t believe us then try it out for yourselves!
It’s only one week into the new half term but already Year 4 have managed to cram in lots of exciting activities.
In English, we have started our new book Harry Potter. So far we have read the first two chapters; meeting Dumbledore, Harry, Hagrid and the Dursleys. We have written excellent character descriptions, including our own character creations.
In Topic we discussed the longest rivers in the UK. Using an atlas, we located The Thames, The Severn and many more on a map. Here we are being testing our Geography skills.
Remember next week is Science week so we need you to bring in some bottles. We look forward to seeing your creations!
We had a very busy last week in Year 4. 4O made their trip to the National Gallery and enjoyed seeing the paintings we have looked at in class.
We mixed Science and English this week by writing a diary entry of a water particle as it moves through the water cycle. We used key words such as evaporation, condensation and precipitation. Can you explain what they mean to your parents?
Next half term, our topic is rivers. Your task over the holidays is to find out some interesting facts. What is the longest river in the world?
We also have an exciting new book to read after half term. We wonder if you can guess what it is.
It’s been an exciting week in Year 4. From working with Chelsea football club to visiting the National Gallery, we have experienced a range of learning opportunities.
4F visited the National Gallery early this morning. It was fantastic to be able to see the real paintings that we have been looking at in class. Popular favourites were The Bathers at Asnieres by Georges Seurat, Sunflowers by Vincent Van Gogh and Waterlillies by Monet. What a great experience!
This week we would like you to learn your 7 times tables. Additionally, practice counting in your multiples of 3 and 4. Can you count forwards and backwards? Can you count into negative numbers? Try starting on an odd number and counting in 4s. Is it more difficult?
As we have been learning about addition this week, we have suggested that you have a go on the websites below. Can you show off all we have learnt?
Wow! What a busy week we have had in Year 4.
We started our brand new English book: The Day the Crayons Quit. It’s safe to say we LOVE it. Our favourite letter was Peach crayon’s who had to come to school with no clothes on. Poor Peach crayon.
In Maths we have had a very tricky week tackling place value. However we used our new skill perseverance and by the end of the week, we were all feeling much more confident rounding to the nearest 10, 100 and 1000. Well done!
Our homework this week is to learn the spelling words below:
Additionally, you need to learn 80-90 Roman numerals.
This week, we asked you to create a paragraph explaining all that we have learnt about Remembrance Day.
Remember – homework is due on a Tuesday!
We have had another busy week in Year 4.
In English, we have based our writing around Dum Spiro, the brave yet clumsy Roman soldier. How close were you with your ending prediction?
We have been learning lots of new sentence types including fronted adverbials and adjectival phrases. Have a go at writing one or both in your homework this week to really show off what you have learnt.
In Maths we have moved on to multiplication including the distributive law. Have a go at completing the equation below.
29 x 5 = 20 x 5 +
This week’s homework is the following 10 spellings from the Year 3 and 4 list. Additionally, we expect you to learn 50-60 Roman numerals and your 7 times tables. We will be testing you on these next week.
Don’t forget to complete your handwriting sheet to ensure you are following the school handwriting policy.
Check out this week’s spelling words below:
We have had a very hands on week in Year 4!
In Science we put all of our learning into practice by creating models of the digestive system. We looked at a range of materials and chose the best for the different body parts. We made sure we justified our opinion. For example Gobind and George chose to use the balloon because the stomach is a round shape and so is the balloon.
Here we are making them after choosing the right materials for the job.
And the finished result? Have a look at one of our fantastic creations below.
Why don’t you tell your parents all about your creation and why you chose the materials you did?
In addition to our experimental Science lesson, we have been continuing with measurement in Maths. We have been converting measures from mm to cm, cm to m, m to km and vice versa. It has been tricky but we have used a place value chart to help us.
Have a go at answering the true or false question below.
When we convert a measure, the distance changes. True or false?
28th September – 2nd October
4F and 4G have been busy learning about non-chronological reports this week. We combined English and Science to create a report about The Human Body. We gathered lots of information about teeth, the digestive system and the skeleton. Why don’t you share the information you put into your did you know box with your parents?
In Maths we have moved onto measurements. We did an investigation this week to see how tall we are and how long our limbs are. We compared them and discovered that one of our legs was longer than the other! Here we are measuring each other.
This week, we are learning the next 10 spellings from our list:
Additionally, we are learning our 31-40 Roman Numerals for our test next week.
21-25 September 2015
This week has been busy in Year 4 – we have learnt all about the Celts in Topic, written a myth in English and discovered all the different parts of the digestive system.
Can you persuade your parents which is the most important organ?
Today in Maths we learnt about negative numbers. We discussed that you see negative numbers in lifts and on thermometers. Are there any other places you can spot them?
As promised here are the links to the videos we watched about Judaism. See if you can hear out for any other information about the Torah and a synagogue that you didn’t catch earlier.
Our homework this week is to learn the following spellings:
Additionally, you need to learn 21-30 Roman numerals.

Year 4 2015-6
Welcome back to a brand new school year in Year 4. What a busy few weeks we have had already.
We have wasted no time getting started with our new learning. This week we have been deepening our understanding of place value and have been rounding four digit numbers! In English we have been learning the myth Romulus and Remus. Ask your children why this myth was important to the Romans. We learnt the myth off by heart and have been retelling it orally with actions. Can you show your parents the myth of Romulus and Remus?
If you haven’t already guessed our new topic is the Romans. The children researched some interesting facts and will be making a Wikepedia page in computing where you will be able to find all the information.
Wow – what a busy week it’s been in year 4! On Tuesday, 4F were lucky enough to go on a trip to the British Museum to kick-start Creative Arts week. Whilst we were there we looked at historical artefacts from Ancient Egypt and Japan (our topic for the week).
For the rest of the week, we continued our learning about Japan – from the traditional Japanese clothing to the art work created by Hokusai. Here were are using patterns to decorate a kimono.
We were also fortunate enough to participate in a circus workshop. Luckily, we weren’t too tired to learn lots of tricks including juggling, balancing plates and how to walk on a tightrope.
Your homework this week is to draw a Manga character. Use the image below to help you.
18th – 22nd May
We have been loving our topic of Ancient Egypt and have produced some wonderful work this week. Have a look at 4S’ display and see if you an spot something you made.
Maths open morning!
We enjoyed welcoming parents into our class to join us in solving some tricky maths problems. Gecko maths was a huge success so thank you to the parents who attended! Here we are in action…
Another busy week in Year 4! 4th-8th May
Wow! What an action-packed week it has been! We’ve been hands on solving maths problems and hunting for clues to solve a historical crime!
First, we had to balance the penguins on the igloo – much harder than you might think!
Even the teachers had some problems to solve – you can see how much concentration they required!
We then learned about shape and had to use logic to solve this very tricky jigsaw.
On Thursday, the History Hunters and Tudor Time Detectives visited our classes. They needed our help to solve the case of Queen Elizabeth I’s missing Salt Cellar. We used our blogging skills to investigate…
“Hmmm… who’s looking suspicious?”
Mapping out the evidence…
Who do YOU think the culprit is? Leave your comment below or log into the blogs at home.
Welcome back Year 4! 20-24 April 2015
We have had a busy start to the Summer Term and have been enjoying the glorious sunshine!

It’s been another busy week for year 4!
We welcomed back some of our classmates from PGL and they quickly got back into the swing of things.
