4AW tested out their shaky hand testers in year 2 today. It was wonderful to see all the circuits work, and a lot of fun was had by all. Year 2 gave us some useful feedback about enjoyment and how we could improve.
Children were excited today to meet their new teachers…it really doesn’t seem like a whole year since we first met them ourselves! We wish all our students the very best for next year.
In Literacy, we have linked back to our residential visit through writing our own recounts about our experience. These recounts have been written up on to Book Creator and will hopefully be a great reminder of children’s first residential experience.
In Numeracy, we have completed our learning on capacity. Some classes have also designed a Kahoot quiz to test their understanding. Why not try your child’s quiz at home!
In Science we carried out a fair test to see which materials conduct electricity and which are insulators. We learnt a valuable lesson about staying out of water if there is lightning nearby. During Art, we began building our shaky hand testers, thinking about our choice of colours and design to appeal to our Year 2 audience. Once these are complete, we will take them to year 2 to try!
Have a great weekend!
The Year 4 Team

Friday 28th – Last day of term 3b. Please collect children straight after afternoon registration (12.40pm) and kindly remember there will be no You-Times on this day.
Having returned from our Residential visit to Ayutthaya, we have looked at the features of recounts and created a book about our experiences. Kate’s can be enjoyed below. Photos have now been shared via Google Drive and can be accessed on the Residential page in Firefly, which can be securely accessed via your child’s login.
After we return from Ayutthaya, children will be creating a ‘Shaky Hand Tester’ using an electrical circuit. As part of this, they will need a base. Can we please ask students to bring in shoe boxes (or similar) in order to help with this? Children will be working in pairs, so please do not worry if you don’t have a box – we can share!
Thank you for your support,
4AW discussed collaboration, our Character Strength, and thought about what skills are needed in order to collaborate effectively. Ideas included listening, asking questions, sharing ideas and being a friend. We then collaborated in groups to complete a task before reflecting on why this is such an important Character Strength to develop.
