Welcome to 4P's page!
We have been using the place value counters and Diennes equipment this week in maths to complete subtraction and addition work.
We have started our new science topic which is states of matter. The children are already enjoying this new topic and have had great fun in our lessons with our experiments. So far, we have been learning about what makes a solid a solid and what makes a liquid a liquid. We have also had a go at making a substance that is suspended between a liquid and a solid using water and corn flour. Let's just say it was very, very messy but lots and lots of fun!
Sam the Bear visits 4P!
Well done 4P for having the best attendance in school for the last two weeks! We hope Sam enjoys visiting Egypt's pyramids! And 4P will enjoy their extra play time I'm sure!
We are loving our weekly JIGSAW lessons in 4P. This week's lesson was especially fun! The children worked together as a team using straws and marshmallows to make the tallest tower they could in five minutes. Every team had the same amount of the items to make it fair and the children had to report back afterwards on how well their team had worked together, what had worked really well and what they could improve on next time.
We are learning about fables in English this half term. As part of our work, the children acted out a fable that we had read. These included the Hare and the Tortoise, The Goose with the golden egg, The Fox and the Crow, The Boy who cried Wolf and we have read many, many more!
Please return your child's website consent form as soon as possible. We have lots of photos ready to go on our class page from our first few weeks at school!
IPC: Ancient Egypt.
We have an amazing first IPC topic in Year 4 learning all about Ancient Egypt. Our Entry Point (first lesson) is loads of fun with the children completing lots of different activities. They get to pretend to be Howard Carter going into Tutankhamen's tomb using torches to spot the treasures hidden inside! They also had to complete some tricky jigsaw puzzles of the tomb paintings and then they got to be archaeologists digging in the sand to find buried Egyptian artifacts. We had a lot of fun!
