October Half Term Review

The Great Bread Bake Off was very successful at the end of last half term with the children making, eating and evaluating their bread!

This half term we have started investigating sound in Science, making our own programme - The Science of Sound!  After, we made our own pan pipes to play sounds with a low and high pitch.

In Maths, we have used column subtraction, measured perimeter and moved onto multiplication and division of known facts.

In German we have 2 visitors, Felix and Franzi, we can now greet each other, count from 10-0 and ask /answer questions. Hallo. Wie geht's ?

We went to Castleshaw to meet our linking school, the children's behaviour was excellent and our knowledge about rivers showed.

In Art, we have been busy making sunflowers, leaves and snowflakes for our four seasons display.  

In History, we have been learning about Kings and Queens since 1066. We have made a school Magna Carta.

In PE, we have learnt about shapes, jumps and rolls so far, in gymnastics.

During computing, we have started to programme Scratch to make some playground games. We have been reading newspapers and recognising the features of a newspaper report. We will be writing poetry next!

Recently, they have been writing about their Science investigation, producing an explanation text. Next, they will be explaining all about the water cycle.

In Geography, they have been learning about rivers and have produced some collages about the journey of the river.

Children have used Tiny Tap on the iPads to make spelling games for homophones using their, there and they're correctly.

In Maths, they have been working hard on fluency, reasoning and problem solving skills on place value and addition. Year 4 are getting better at using tangrams.

Trips to The Oldham Academy North art department have started well, with the children listening, noticing and being excellent ambassadors for the school!
