Terrific Tie Dye!

Year 4 are thrilled with how their Tie Dye t-shirts have turned out!

We researched different types of Tie Dye and the patterns that could be achieved. We then designed our own t-shirts.

We loved tie dying using ink and elastic bands to create the amazing patterns.

Museum of Science and Industry!

Year 4 have had a fantastic day at the Museum of Science and Industry in Manchester!

We learned even more about electricity by doing a workshop all about Manchester engineers who found ways to light the streets of Manchester!

We explored circuits and how they can be powered. We looked at some ancient inventions such as one of the first hair dryers, a musical hat and an electric belt!

Indus Valley Art

Year 4 have combined their learning in Art and Religious Education about the Indus Valley Civilisation.

Here is an example of an original seal that was discovered by archaeologists.

We researched how the Indus Valley people used seals to trade their goods, designed our own and then made them using clay.

British Science Week!

We loved celebrating British Science Week! We carried out an investigation based on the story of Bad Dad by David Walliams.

We used our knowledge about electricity and circuits that we learned last half term.

We designed a way to make a circuit for a burglar alarm, we love investigating which materials are conductors and insulators.

Lights, camera, action!

Today Year 4 have been working on writing narrative with dialogue.

To help our understanding of how speech and dialogue work together we acted out conversations between Leon and his brother or sister with characters and a narrator.

We all worked together really well and loved performing our conversations to the rest of the class!
