Welcome to Year 4
Mental Health Day
Today we looked at ways we could keep our brains healthy and positive. We explored movement, brain gym and took a line for a walk! Year 4 came up with some great ideas about how to look after themselves and keep their minds healthy.
Year 4 have enjoyed using collage to build up a textured surface to paint on. They have mixed colours and overpainted areas to add detail and interest. Their concentration and skill was impressive and they were very organised with their resources. Well done Year 4.
Food Technology, Jennifer Carver Competition
During Jennifer Carver week year 4 evaluated flapjacks before adapting the recipe with extra ingredients. We taste tested and then changed the quantities to make our own flapjacks. We made 3 different types and then evaluated them against our first evaluation. Apple flapjack was the class favourite, we looked at the texture, taste, smell and appearance. All pupils used their chopping and slicing skills.
Year 4 have challenged each other by playing multiplication games. They worked well together, although I’m sure I saw a bit of cheating going on!
We looked at the story of Buddha. Starting with him being born as a Prince, year 4 used drama to explore and sequence the important parts of his life.
