National Science week in Year 4

 

We discussed about how the school environment changes throughout the year, thinking about seasons and different activities  and events which happen.

We went outside to collect natural materials, making sure we collected a range of colours.

Once we were back in class, we then created a picture using the natural materials.

 

We discussed what would happen if we mixed food colouring with water. We tested the effects my placing tissue into the colour water and watching the colour soak up.

What are we learning this term?

Year 4 Roman day

Today we had a very special visitor in school, a Roman Senator! He came to show and tell us what life would have really been like in Roman times. He brought lots of REAL Roman artefacts with him, even Roman Weapons, which the army would have used! We now understand why lots of people were very scared of the Romans!

We dressed as Romans for the day and even got to make our very own Roman coin.

 

There has been a Roman invasion in year 4 this morning!!!

We re-enacted two Roman invasions to help us understand what the Romans would have felt like when they invaded the Celts.

When we returned to our own classes to find they had been invaded!

We recorded our thoughts and feelings in our Writing books.

 

What are we are learning about this term?

LO: To understand what our rights are and how we can respect them.

In groups, we focused on a ‘right’. We had to search for this right around school and take a selfie when we found it.

We then discussed as a group what this right was and how we could respect it.

Anti - Bullying Week!

We took part in a special anti- bullying workshop, where we discussed different scenario's in a school playground and out of school. We used drama to express our opinions and advice!

We created freeze frames of the children being bullied and then another freeze frame of what we could do to help that child.

What are we learning about this half term?

Friday – 8am - Breakfast today was cereal with toast and jam. We also had to make our lunch; sandwiches/wraps.

9.30am – Back to the dormitories to pack, tidy and collect the scores to see if we managed to earn our gold bead! Luckily, we left the dormitories spotless and slept really well so we earned 10/10 meaning we get our gold beads!!!

10.30am – Minstead little field to face paint/decorate ourselves.

11am – Treasure hunt to spell out the special Minstead word: Our fragile Planet. This helped remind us all the skills we learnt whilst being at Mistead and what we need to do look after planet Earth!

12pm – Lunch

12.45pm – Time to go home!

A fantastic 3 days here at Minstead, the children have been fantastic and I am sure they are looking forward to telling everyone all that they have done.

The teachers, especially Miss Shrubsole are ready for Half term that is for sure! 

Thursday: 8am - Breakfast (cereal AND beans on toast!)

9pm – room inspections! Beds had to be made, draws tide shower room clean and clear and cloakroom tidy. We also got scored on sleeping. We have to score 10 out of 10 to be awarded a team work bead by the end of our stay. Today we scored 4 out of 10! (Some of the boys and girls lost all sleeping points as they didn’t go to sleep until 11.30pm and woke Miss Shrubsole, Miss T and Mrs Barlow up at 5.30am!!!)

10am - We started the day by meeting in the classroom, where Chris was waiting for us. We learnt the ‘Tenga’ song and then divided into 2 groups.

Group 1 stayed at Minstead first, where they learnt about recycling, specifically where the food wasted goes and about ‘farm to fork’ (where our food comes from) The children tried different herbs that were grown in the gardens at Minstead, even edible flowers! They then had to move manure onto the crops so they will grow healthily throughout the year. This meant the children had to work as a team in order to get all the crops covered in time! We received our red bead after this activity.

Group 2 went into the centre of Minstead to conduct a Traffic survey, learn how to use a compass to compare locations (Millbrook vs Minstead) and finally we visited the Church in Mistead All Saints Church, which is over 600 years old. The famous author,  Arthur Conan Doyle is buried at this church. Here we got our white bead.

12pm – Lunch

1pm – Groups swapped activities. Then headed back to our dormitories to get ready for dinner (pasta bake and bananas and custard) at 5pm.

7pm – We had our lantern procession to the big camp fire at the end of the Minstead field. Here we got our yellow bead for ‘energy’ (we used different words to describe the fire and how lucky we were to have such a thing as fire!)

8pm – Pyjamas, Hot chocolate and cookies and Bedtime (remembering that we need 10/10 to earn our gold bead!)

4GS (Wednesday – Friday)

Wednesday: We arrived at Minstead at 1.30am, went straight up to our dormitories to unpack and get ready for our walk into the wild woods with Chris (Teacher at Minstead)

After walking for about an hour, crossing the troll’s bridge and creating stone signals we reached our destination in the wild forest. We went on a new route through the New forest where other children had never been before so we had to use tree branches and old trees to build a new naming circle for us to sit on. Then we were given our New Forest names on badges, ready to collect our first bead; Biodiversity. This represented all the different living things living together in the new forest.

4pm – Time to trek back to Minstead Study centre, dry/clean ourselves up and get ready for dinner (at 5pm); Pizza, chips and apple and blackberry crumble with custard! YUM!!

6pm - After dinner, we spent some time in the classroom finding out more about the living times on our name badges and then making our lanterns ready for the procession to the camp fire tomorrow. We then headed to the roundhouse for a story before bed.

7.30pm Once we were back in the dormitories, it was time to put Pyjamas on, hot chocolate and homemade biscuits and then bedtime at 8.30pm.

We wonder what tomorrow will bring, we look forward to it!

Minstead Residential

Monday 17th October 2016 – Friday 21st October 2016.

4EA (Monday – Wednesday)

Monday: We arrived at Minstead at 10.30am, went straight up to our dormitories to unpack and get ready for our walk into the wild woods with Chris (Teacher at Minstead)

11.30am - It was pouring with rain when we first started our walk, which meant lots of puddles and mud. Within 10 minutes some children already had water filled wellies!

12.30pm - After walking for about an hour, crossing the troll’s bridge and creating stone signals it was FINALLY time for lunch (we were sooooo hungry!) we had a picnic, with homemade sandwiches, fruit and chocolate brownies!! Once we had re-fuelled we set off deeper into the wild woods!

We found some charcoal on the way, Chris told us this was man made face paint so some of us decorated our faces! After, we made our way across the deepest, muddiest, wettest bog in the new forest! A few children got their wellies stuck and had to be rescued by other members of Kingfishers (the teachers didn’t want to sacrifice their wellies yet!!)

3pm - Finally, We reached our destination in the wild forest where we were given our New Forest names on badges, ready to collect our first bead; Biodiversity. This represented all the different living things living together in the new forest.

4pm - Then it was time to trek back to Minstead Study centre, dry/clean ourselves up and get ready for dinner (at 5pm); Pizza, chips and apple and blackberry crumble with custard! YUM!!

Summer 2

 

This term we will be learning all about......

5.7.16

 

The Water Cycle in a jar


(Adapted from a collection of pupil writing)

Today we made the most of the sunny weather by creating our own rainforests in a jar. As part of our Science and Geography this term, we have learned about the Water Cycle and how rainforests are humid (hot and wet) due to their location – near the Equator. As the Equator is the hottest part of the world, the heat causes water to evaporate at a much greater rate than in England! Believe it or not the rainforests get more rain that we do!

In order to investigate the Water Cycle and humidity in the rainforest, we replicated the rainforest environment in a jar!

 

First, we added some soil and some plants. We were careful to remove the roots too so the plants had a greater chance of survival. When we had added enough plants to mimic the rainforest, we added some water and covered the lid with cling film. We chose cling film as it let the sun-light through the top!

 

We predicted that the water would heat up in the sun and start to evaporate – this is when a liquid turns into a gas! When the water evaporated it would get trapped by the cling film, start to cool and turn back into a liquid – this is called condensation. If you look carefully at the pictures you will see the condensation forming on the lid and the sides! Once a lot of water had formed in the lid, it started to drip back down. We think this is just like rain – precipitation!

 

Take a look at our amazing miniature rainforests!

Year 4's Ridiculous Relay Race.

14.6.16

 

Today we were challenged to use all our explorer skills to locate the rainforests of the world. In pairs, we had to find the Equator, the Northern and Southern Hemisphere, The Tropics and the Rainforests of the world.

 

Take a look at some of us at work:

Tegan and Anita used Google Earth to locate the Equator.

 

Dagmara used an atlas to locate the rainforests of the world. Dagmara was the first to complete the challenge :) Great work Dagmara!

 

Jake and Finley used a globe to find the Northern and Southern Hemisphere.

 

Ellie-Mai and Callum showed great team work skills!

 

Well done Year 4!

 

 

Summer 1

 

The Romans 

 

Settlers and Invaders!

Friday 27th May 2016 

Year 4 had a great day today making Roman Honey cake. Just like the Romans, by hand, we whisked the eggs and folded in flour and honey. We couldn't use sugar because the Romans didn't have sugar! 

Cracking eggs:

Oops! Dropped an egg shell:

Still whisking......

Still whisking......

Still whisking!!!! Our arms really started to ache!

Adding the honey:

Adding the honey:

 

Unfortunately, we ate the cakes so quickly we forgot to take any photos!

 

If you'd would like to make them at home again, follow these instructions:

 

You will need:

3 eggs

200g clear, runny honey (a strong flavoured one is best)

50g flour, sifted

 

 

  1. Preheat oven to 170C, 330F or gas 3. If you have a fan oven, turn   off the fan if possible or put the heat down to 160C

  2. Set out the cupcake cases into the baking tray

  3. Break the eggs into a bowl and beat them hard and well until getting stiff, creating lots of air bubbles (Nowadays we can use a whisk to do this)

  4. Gradually beat in the honey

  5. Gently fold in the sifted flour

  6. Pour the mixture into the prepared cases    

  7. Cook in oven for approximately 15 to 20 minutes depending on type of oven and how deep the mixture is in the cases

  8. Take out and turn onto a wire tray to cool

Science: Teeth 10.5.16

 

Question: What is the best way to clean your teeth?

 

Investigation: Disclosing tablets & plaque!

 

Year 4 are currently writing instructions for the children who attend Breakfast Club to instruct them on how to correctly clean their teeth. In order to strengthen our instructions with scientific facts, we completed an investigation into different teeth cleaning methods to find the most effective method for removing plaque.

 

We split into groups of 4 and investigated 4 cleaning methods:

  • no brushing,
  • brushing with water,
  • brushing with toothpaste for 30 seconds, 
  • brushing with toothpaste for 2 minutes. 

 

We predicted that the best cleaning method for removing plaque would be using toothpaste and brushing for 2 minutes. 

 

no We were right! frown

 

Computing day - 4/5/16

 

Something strange has happened in Year 4 this term - the children have disappeared and been replaced by fierce Romans soldiers. These highly trained, loyal Roman intruders have been invading classrooms and delivering persuasive speeches aimed at furthering the Roman Belief!

 

We caught some of these powerful and emotive speeches on camera and Year 4 have been busy editing them using movie maker software to bring them to life. 

 

Watch the videos below and decide for yourself.... Should the Romans invade Britain? Have you been persuaded?

Settlements 13.4.16

Our Celtic settlement had blue tissue paper as water. We needed to have water so our Celts can wash and keep hydrated. 

We used green tissue paper for the fertile land and Joshus's step for our hillfort. It was important to use a hillfort because it would be harder for Roman invaders to climb up. We also needed guards to defend the gates!

We made Celtic homes by using egg boxes which we cut up. These looked just like Celtic roundhouses. It was important to have these for shelter.

As part of our poetry unit, Year 4 have been writing limericks. 


There once was a small dog called Spot,

Who loved to play dot-to-dot,

He had a bone,

Then sat on his throne,

That clever old dog Spot. 

Kenzie 

 

There was once an old man called Sam,

Who went to get some ham,

He was under his umbrella,

Watching Cinderella,

That crazy old man called Sam. 

Nathan

 

There once was an old man called Ted,

Who loved sleeping in his comfy bed,

He wouldn't get out,

And wriggled about,

Until he bumped his big, smelly head. 

Ellie-Mai

 

There once was a fat, old dog called Fog,

Who lived on a burnt log,

He chewed on a bone,

And sat on a throne,

That silly, old dog named Fog. 

Callum H

 

There once was a little frog called Fog,

Who liked playing on his log,

He never stopped,

But then he popped,

That silly old frog named Fog.

Macaulee

 

There once was a man called Ben,

Who lived in an old rusty den,

He led on the floor,

And broke the door,

The stupid old man called Ben.

Year 4 have been writing poems. Today we wrote Haiku poems:

"Haiku" is a traditional form of Japanese poetry Haiku poems consist of 3 lines. The first and last lines of a Haiku have 5 syllables and the middle line has 7 syllables. The lines rarely rhyme.

 

These are some of our Haiku poems...

 

Nice green lovely grass,

Insects hiding in the grass,

People having fun.

Kodie 

 

The lovely green grass,

Waves in the cold winter breeze,

As I ran around. 

Tegan

 

Watching the leaves fall,

On top of the dead brown trees,

In Autumn they lay.

Ella

 

In night time it is dark,

Crickets sing their lullaby,

It is time to sleep.

Dagmara 

 

Animals are wild,

Roaming through the jungle trees,

drinking from the leaves.

Year 4 had a fantastic day celebrating World Book Day. We dressed up as some of our favourite characters and completed some fun, themed activities.

We used our knowledge of equivalent fractions to solve a problem and work out who had read the most of a story:

We 'dropped everything and read' when we heard a special sound:

 

We also we completed a 'Guess the Book Character' quiz - winners to be announced soon!

 

Thank you to everyone who took part and remember....keep reading!

(2.3.16) PE: Outdoor and Adventurous Activities (OAA). We used our orienteering skills to locate hidden markers.

This term Year 4 are learning about the rainforest. We will be studying The Jungle Book in English as well as focusing on living things and their habitats in science. 

 

Remember to bring in any rainforest work you complete at home to share on our home learning wall. We were so impressed with your effort and engagement in our Mexico topic, can you do even better?

 

Summer 1 

This term Year 4 are studying Roman Britain. We will be learning about the Romans, the Celts, and the Roman invasion and its legacy. 

 

Roman challenge!

What is the most interesting fact you can find about the Romans?

 

Year 4 RE day

As part of our Trees as a Symbol RE day on Friday, Year 4 received a visit from 2 members of Southampton City Mission.  

 

We completed many fun activities, such as a treasure hunt, and learned about many different types of trees. We drew trees to represent our lives and reflected on all of our ‘good fruit’. We also had great fun making a tree collage and we were able to place all our trees together to make a forest with a river.

 

Take a look at some of the photos from the day.

Spring 2 - Mexico

Hola!

As you may have already heard, this term Year 4 are learning all about Mexico!

 

During our Mexico launch day, we carried out research focusing on Mexico as a place and its culture - Did you know Mexico has a population of 113 million people and is 8 times bigger than England? 

 

Some children have also completed fantastic research at home and we a really proud of their commitment to their learning. All of the children within Year 4 should be proud of their engagement and commitment to this topic so far, it really has been remarkable! 

 

We look forward to keeping you updated with our Mexican themed learning…
