April 2017 in Year 4

Rangoli patterns show creative, accurate and colourful symmetrical patterns produced in maths. They will produce a fabulous class display in the hall.

The cineliteracy Lion King English unit has inspired wonderfully descriptive sentences about settings and main characters.  Year 4 have been developing using ambitious language choices with adjectives, fronted adverbials, and sub-ordinated clauses.

In science, year 4 have really enjoyed investigation fossil specimens and photos to learn about how they have formed over millions of years. We did investigations to find the best conditions to germinate and grow mung beans and kept a record of this over two weeks.

Year 4 have tested their fitness and skills during circuit training exercises, aiming to improve on these over the next few weeks.  They are also enjoying cricket coaching and sports hall athletics training too.
