Autumn Term 1

Week 8 - Science Week

In class 4 the children have been learning all about forces, including, gravity, reaction force, friction and air resistance. They learned all about Isaac Newton and his discovery of gravity and used Newton meters to measure the weight and mass of objects.

 

 

Class 4 carried out an investigation to make the most air resistant parachute - one that would fall to the ground the slowest. They worked in groups of three making one parachute each. They could choose one independent variable ( one thing to change in all three parachutes, for example, the shape, size or material). 

Week 8

Class 4 led Harvest Assembly this week. We used Cafod's "Brighten up your Harvest" and learned all about helping projects in El Salvador.

Week 3

Whilst most of the Year 5s were out on Bikeability, the rest of class 4 were busy with Maths and Literacy. See how they ordered negative numbers in descending order without speaking one word! One of the few times you will witness this absolute silence! :-)

 

Class 4's members of the school choir couldn't wait to show what they have been learning at the "Young Voices"  after school choir. Needless to say we were all very impressed and after only one session!
