We spent a lovely sunny afternoon collecting materials from the playground and woodland to create some natural artwork. We are really proud of our work, what do you think?
As part of our topic, Shaping Up, we have learnt all about the bones in the skeleton. Today, we designed bones using clay. We found it quite tricky to join, but we are really happy with what we made!
“It was creative fortnight and we got clay and we made part of the body. Some people made a whole skeleton and most people in 4TE made a skull or a rib cage.” Alyssa
“Making bones out of clay was really creative and fun and I really liked it. It wasn’t what I expected but it was the best thing of creative weeks” Warsame
Take a look at some of our work:
In Miss Ewer’s maths class, we spent the day doing practical and creative maths. It was great fun!
We started off learning about length, and measuring a racing track on the playground. We had to estimate the length first, before measuring with a trundle wheel.
Then, we created our own potions to give us invisibility! We had to measure each ingredient very carefully to make sure the potion was right. They didn’t look very tasty at the end!
After that, we used some data that we worked on for our homework, and work out the average time spent doing exercise in a week. Unfortunately, we only spent 90 minutes a week doing housework at home. Oh dear!
On Monday, we were joined by Lance Corporal Broom and Staff Sergeant Hrycak to talk about the different clothes worn by members of the British Army. They were both asked lots of questions and we found out a lot about how their different clothes and uniforms are suited to different environments.
Warsame and Fatma recorded an interview with them, and this can be found by following the link: https://www.makewav.es/story/440370/title/armyvisitors
Here are some pictures from their visit:
As part of our Fashion topic, we spent an afternoon looking at different types of insulators, and thought about what would keep us warmest if we went on a trip to the North Pole.
We started our experiment with 4 ices cubes, and used cotton wool, newpaper, bubble wrap and tin foil as the different insulators for each. We left our ice cubes in a warm spot and thought about what would keep the ice cube coldest for the longest.
It turned out that the newspaper did not make a very insulator, as nearly all of the ice had melted. We found that the cotton wool kept the ice cube cold and so decided that it was the best insulator.
If we went on a trip to the North Pole, we definitely wouldn’t be wearing a newspaper coat!!
Here in year 4 we have started our new topic of fashion with a BANG!
All of year 4 got together into groups and designed an outfit for a different decade. Then, we created them, using only plastic bags and sellotape. Finally, we showcased the brilliant creatioons with a catwalk show.
Take a look at our work!
