Year 4


Hello from Year 4 2016-2017


Welcome to our page.

Here we are showing off our Easter eggs for the competition:

We spent two week planning, designing and making our moving picture factfiles. We are all very proud of what we have achieved - they were truly amazing.
This week we made Mothers' Day cards to tell our mums what is special about them - here we are making them!
Since Comic Relief coincided with Featherbank's Science Week, we all dressed up as mad scientists. Have a look at what fabulous outfits Year 4 made!
Here we are during Science week doing an experiment with Skittles and writing each other secret messages!
During Science week, we have been lucky enough to have Mrs Weavers doing a very exciting experiment with us where we got to make our own ice-cream! Although ours didn't quite work out, we still got to try some and it was delicious!

March 2017

In Science, we have done an experiment to replicate the effects of different liquids on our teeth. We put eggs into different liquids for a week then took the eggs out. The pictures of what we found are below.

February 2017

This week we have been matching fractions to equivalent decimals in maths.

January 2017

Look at the super Christmas tree decorations we have made for the school tree.

December 2016

We have been 'making' some Christmas maths problems practically to help show us when we need to multiply and when we need to divide.

Today in Year 4 we were lucky enough to have a special Tudor visitor. Queen Elizabeth I traveled in time to visit us and was kind enough to let us ask her some questions about Tudor life. What a fantastic opportunity for us!

Going dotty for Children in Need.

November 2016

As part of 'The Big Draw' 2016 Year 4 designed and made their own Rube Goldberg Machines. The simple task their machines has to perform was to ring a bell.

This week in DT we have been making our own lights. We know how to make a circuit and a switch to turn our lights on and off. We also thought very carefully about who might buy our lights and how we could make them appeal to those people. 

In music we have had lots of fun learning about rhythm and making up rhythmic compositions. We have some very talented musicians in Year 4!

We are nearly at the end of our first half term so Miss O'Dwyer and Mrs Procter have been looking at all the fabulous homework activities that have been completed from our Tudor grid. They were very impressed with our super creations and lots of our work is on display in the classroom so everybody can see. Here are just a few of our creative pieces that we have worked so hard on.

October 2016

We have been very busy in Year 4 so far this half term. In science we have been learning about electricity. Here we are setting up our own circuits so we can test whether different materials are conductors or insulators.

We have kicked off our new year in Year 4 with some very colourful artwork. We have been making chalk pastel flowers in the style of Georgia O'Keeffe. First, we practised blending colours using our chalk pastels. Then, we coloured our sunflowers by blending different colours together. Afterwards, we all drew and coloured our own flowers - look how great they are!
