Have a look at our electricity experiments. We used circuit boards and had to create different circuits to light the light bulb up. We then tested out different insulators and conductors to see which would allow the electricity to flow through the circuit. 

During our design technology topic, we experimented with different structures. We used sweets and cocktail sticks first to see how we make joins to allow a building to stand up. We then moved on to using straws and cardboard triangles for supports.

During our science topic this half term, we conducted a science experiment looking at the effect of different liquids on our teeth. We used, vinegar, coke, black currant cordial, water and orange juice. We put eggs into each liquid and left them for a week. We checked them every day to see if anything on the shell had changed. The effects were astonishing! It really made us think about the foods and drinks that we put into our mouths and the effects it has on our teeth.

Remembrance Day

Have a look at some the fantastic art work that our year 4 class produced for Remembrance Day to go on display in the Veterans office in Wigan. We used a variety of mediums to achieve our finished products, including watercolour, oil pastels and collage.

Christmas

Year 4 enjoyed all the Christmas festivities, and even had a very special visit from Father Christmas! We loved meeting him and having a little chat with him.

Autumn 1

Look below to see the knowledge organisers for our Science and History units this half term. Use these to help you with your learning inside and outside of school. 

Have a look at some of fantastic history work about The Normans. We learnt all about the Bayeaux Tapestry, creating our own using watercolours, and learnt all about the Motte and Bailey castles. We even built our own castles out of junk modelling in groups, have a look at those keeps on top off the Mottes. Can you spot any animals and farm buildings in the Baileys? Some even have a working drawbridge. What a brilliant effort from year 4.

Have a look at our long term plan below. These are all the things we will be covering throughout our time in Year 4.
