Week commencing 14th OCTOBER
We will be making lighthouses using what we have learnt in our science lessons on 'electricity'. If you have any bottles, kitchen roll tubes, clear yogurt pots or anything else which could be used to make a small lighthouse, please send it in to school! Thank you in advance.
Science - electricity
In science, we have been experimenting and learning all about circuits!
We are building our knowledge on electricity. Can you find any interesting facts to share with the class and add to our Science wall?
We experimented with different equipment including bulbs, wires and batteries. We added more batteries and light bulbs to our circuits to find out what changes.
Maths - Adding with and without exchanging
This week we have been learning about Islam in RE! We learnt what the religion is, who follows it and about the Five pillars of Islam.
In class, we had a look at some relgious objects and what they may be used for. As I come from a Muslim background, I bought in some religious objects and explained how, when and what Muslims use these for. I was amazed at the knowledge and interesting questions Year 4 had to ask :)
Year 4 have created their own stories inspired by the book we have been reading, The Fox and the Star. We used illustrations, vocabulary used in the book but our imagination to create our own unique characters and settings.
We shared our stories to peers across the year and created a beautiful display using the booklets in the Year 4 corridor!
Introducing a new topic and great amounts of vocabulary can be quite hard to remember!
For each topic, we have created knowledge mats which include important vocabulary and knowledge that we will cover in lessons and that you should be able to recall.
This term we have created knowledge mats for:
Science - Electricity
RE - Islam
Geography - Map work
I hope you find this useful!

In maths we will be learning about place value and rounding numbers.
