December 2017 in Year 4

After investigating 2Dshapes, coordinates and translation, year 4’s has been creating patterns with one and two lines of symmetry in maths.

In science we have enjoyed examining our teeth and how what we eat affects the health of our teeth.  Year 4 have also looked at healthy meals and having a balanced diet.

In bridge building day, year 4 worked in small groups to research different types of bridges to design and create their own one to fit certain success criteria, for example spanning across a 30 cm river, being wide enough for 2 cars on the road and being strong enough to hold 3 200g weights

Decoration’s day was fun and all the children like the opportunity to work with all of the different ages across the school.  Year 4 creates a glittering winter scene with deer in a wood, and decorated with Christmas baubles.
