Year 4 2017/18

Autumn 2 Term

The question we are going to be asking in Autumn 2 is 'How would Andy Warhol paint winter?'

At the Winter Wonderland event on the 8th December we will be teaching our parents/carers how to make an Andy Warhol style winter print.

Autumn 1 Term

Welcome to Year 4!

It looks very exciting in Y4 this year. Mr Johnston (who is new to school) and Mrs Douglas have planned for a visit right at the start of term.

The journey we are going on is asking, 'How can we get to the other side', so we are going to the city centre to see how many bridges we can find! We will be designing and building our own bridge, and having a competition to see whose is strongest!

Our Autumn 1 Learning

Learning about how amazing structures, bridges and tunnels can take us to the other side has been fascinating.

We explored how different materials, shapes and designs make a structure sturdy and pleasing to the eye. To combine all of our knowledge together we held a bridge building competition using just paper straws and tape with prizes for the strongest and best design.

Parents view: "Brilliant afternoon bridge building. Lovely to see what the children have been doing in school and lots of fun being able to enjoy doing it with them."
