Year 4

smileyWelcome to Year 4!smiley

 

Welcome children, parents and carers to our 2017/18 Year 4 class page. In Year 4, we learn a variety of fun and interesting topics these are Vicious or Valiant Vikings?, Ole!, The Curse of the Mummy, 3...2...1...Blast off!, North America and Smells, Spells, Lotions and Potions.

 

On Thursdays, we are very lucky to be taught violins by Mrs Home and Miss Smith, from MAPAS (the Salford Music Service) who come into school. We all need to try to remember our violins every week.

 

The staff in Year 4 are Miss Unwin and Mrs Hammond. We are always here to help.

 

I hope you enjoy Year 4 as much as I do, 

Miss Unwin

As part of our whole school art week, Year 4 visited the Lowry Gallery in Salford Quays. We focused on Lowry's industrial landscape drawings and paintings. They were inspirational. We made sketch books and began to copy the buildings from some of L.S Lowry's famous paintings. When we arrived back at school, we painted the sketches using water colours. These are our masterpieces.

In small groups, we learnt about how when famous or influential people died, in Ancient Egypt, their bodies were mummified and placed in a sarcophagus. The designs were very royal and beautiful, which included lots of gold and hieroglyphics. Therefore, we decided to have a go at making replicas. Above, you can see some pictures of the designing and finished product.

A visit to The Bolton Recycling Centre

Spring 1- North America (Wild Weather)

In our Online Safety lesson, we focused on how fast messages can be spread online. We looked at a poster from the 1940's and discussed how messages were distributed back then and compared it to now. At the end of the lesson, we invented our own 'messages' that we wouldn't mind sharing on the internet. #Becarefulwhatyousayonline

Take a look at some of our messages below.

Marble Ink Planets

Marble Ink Planets 1
Today during our Art lesson, we used marble ink to create these groovy planets. We attempted to ensure that all the the planets looked slightly different by adding various colours to the water. 

(Vicious or Valiant Vikings?)
