Celebrating Our Success

In Year 4, we love it when we can share successes and achievements.

Well done to Isabelle and Olivia for their positive attitudes and Ruby and Eliza for being Class Champions!

 

Fire Safety


Today, the children enjoyed a visit from West Midlands Fire Service and they were shocked to learn how quickly a fire spreads. The children learnt about how smoke alarms alert people to fires in their homes and where they should be placed in their house. They discussed suitable escape routes from different rooms in their home. The children identified hazards in the home which could lead to a house fire. The children know how to call and speak to the emergency services if they are involved in a fire. Year 4 now understand what a 'hoax' call is and the consequences of making one of these calls. The children are now looking forward to becoming 'Junior Fire Inspectors'. Once the children have completed their home investigation sheets, they will be awarded with a certificate. Well done Year 4!

 

Science
Year 4 have been learning all about the digestive system. Here they are demonstrating how our bodies digest food using a banana sandwich. The children were able name to the different organs and can describe the functions of each one.

 

In the Summer Term, Year 4 children will be taking the statutory Multiplication Tables Check (MTC).
This check involves the children answering 25 time tables facts using a computer program. The children will have 6 seconds to answer each fact. In order to prepare the children for this we have added a link below which will support their multiplication knowledge. The 'Sound Check'section is very similar to the check that the children will be completing.

Inspire


The children were joined by parents and grandparents to make a catapult that would fire a pom pom or a polo mint the furthest. Everyone had great fun and learnt how the Romans used siege weapons to attack a city.

French


Year 4 enjoyed a French breakfast and learnt how to ask for a croissant or a pain au chocolat. They also had a choice of drink. They enjoyed jus d'pomme (apple juice) and jus d'orange (orange juice) Bon appetit!
