Year 4 Robins performed an Easter assembly today. Thank you to all the parents and families that attended today’s assembly.
Year 4 Robins are looking at how different religions teach listening.
In this lesson we are learning about how the Guru’s teachings in Sikhism teach people to listen.
Here we are acting out the story of Guru Nanak.
The children in Year 4 are really excited about starting their new topic in Science on chemical changes. In this topic we will be looking at what happens when two chemicals react with each other and recognising if this reaction is reversible or irreversible.
In our first science lesson we talked a lot about the safety procedures we need to follow in these lessons. We then watched our first chemical reaction called Green Fire!
In PSHE this term we are thinking about money and saving.
In today’s lesson we were given a monthly salary in our pairs. We were asked to spend our monthly salary on rent, food and other activities but we had to stick to our budget!
In PSHE today we discussed the word antisocial.
We thought about how a person who is antisocial might show antisocial behaviour at home, school or in the community.
In Year 4 we have began a new unit of work in RE focusing on listening, modesty and respect.
We have began this unit of work by considering all the different reasons why we listen.
Here is an example of a mind map from Paris.
Year 4 Robins have today been get familar with programming using Kodu – a 3D game developing platform.
The children were asked to explore the program and see if they could insert a Rover to move around and collect coins. The coins should vanish once the Rover bumps into them. Points should also be awarded when each coin is collected.
Some of the children grasped today’s task and really enjoyed Kodu.
Year 4 Robins have been designing and making their own bread.
We began by collecting ideas for our design by tasting a variety of different breads, looking at the texture, flavour and shape.
Then we came up with a range of different ideas to meet the design specification that was given to us.
After choosing a final design, we then spent the whole day baking our own bread based on our design.
A big thank you to Mr Brunetti for coming in to help us!
As part of Computer Science Week, Year 4 Robins have used Scratch to create and animate their own Google logos.
The children made the letters dance, tell a story and some created a game. They used different blocks to add motion, change of colour and size.
The children demonstrated their knowledge of Scratch from the past few weeks.
In Computing, Year 4 Robins have created Knock Knock jokes in Scratch and then added their voice recordings to the program.
The objective of the lesson was to add two sprites telling each other jokes and then adding sound recording for each character.
Here are some examples of the children’s work.
