Our P.E sessions are on Tuesday and Friday.
Welcome to Year 4's brilliant class page! The adults in class are Mr Haigh, Mrs Bridge, Miss Harrison and Mrs Gomersell.
In our first few weeks, we have been working extremely hard. In Maths, we have been learning all about four digit numbers, including expanding numbers, putting them in ascending order and placing them on a number line to 10,000. In English, the children have been trying very hard to achieve their first class targets. In addition, we have started reading the hilarious Mr Stink by the phenomenal David Walliams. One of our tasks was to 'hot seat' Mr Stink by asking him precise questions about his life.
As a class we agreed the rules for our class charter. All of the designs were fantastic, and Harry's charter was chosen by Mrs Mulligan to be put on display in the hall. Have a look at our charter to see if you can spot your signature and remind yourself of the rules.
Our topic in class is the Victorians. We have researched facts about Queen Victoria using the iPads, drawn in the style of William Morris and finished the colliery silhouette pictures we started on transition day.
Forget your X-box, Nintendo Switch and PS4 and check out Charlie's thaumatrope. It's a two sided Victorian with a picture on either side. When you spin it rapidly, it creates an illusion by combining the two together!
In science, we have been having fun with circuits. We had to decide what equipment was needed and what we would do to make the bulb light up. In addition, they made a switch using only split pins and a paper clip. Some of them were real 'bright sparks!'
As part of our topic work, we compared photos of Wakefield from the Victorian era to what it looks like today. Have a look at the pair of photos below and see if you know where these places are. How are the two pictures different? What type of transport do you notice?
In class, our book shelf is overflowing with brilliant books. As well as our class reader 'Mr Stink' we have been reading 'The Creakers' at the end of the day as well as a range of hilarious and creative poems to help us with our own poetry writing. Below are a few of our favourite books in class.
In November, we were lucky enough to visit Cineworld to watch Wonder Park. The film is about a young girl who encounters a real version of her magical amusement park, run by talking animals. It gave the children lots of creative ideas and inspired them to produce some 'splendiferous' writing.
