Year 4 with Mr Murray!

Welcome!

First of all, I hope that you are all settling well into Year 4 and are enjoying it so far. 

There has been a fantastic response to reading, spellings and homework so far and I hope this continues. 

Just a reminder that everything will be sent home on a Thursday afternoon to be due in on the following Tuesday (unless otherwise sepcified).

Britain's Railways!

We have made a fantastic start to the railway topic with some excellent display constructions and some absolutely fantastic sketching! 

The children have researched the topic independently and shown a good understanding of the developments of the railways. We even managed to have a debate as to whether they were a good idea.

Gregory gets Cool!

 

We have been looking at Gregory Cool through our sequence of learning in English. 

 Whilst this book isn't the length of a novel, we have managed to draw plenty out of it!

Here we have some of our groups doing their role-play based on the 'shark scene' where our children tackled the perilous Tobago waters for what turned out to be nothing more than a dolphin!

 

 

Following on the theme of sharks, we created some factfiles as a piece of non-fiction writing. Below are some excellent examples of these. 

It's Electrifying

Our first science unit, has been all about electricity. So far we have:

  1. Thought about electrical safety.
  2. Explored the different sources of power.
  3. Created circuits for different purposes.
  4. Troubleshooted faulty circuits.

I have been amazed by the ability of the children when working with the equipment and they have shown enthusiasm. See some of our work below.
