Summer 1 I am Warrior
As part of our entry point, we were set the challenge to make a celtic roundhouse using the limited resources provided. Using great teamwork and a range of problem solving strategies we created a 3D model.

Spring 2 Playlists

This half term our topic is called Playlists. Throughout this topic we will be exploring a range of genres of music; comparing and contrasting the different sounds and instrument used in order to discuss our own preferences when it comes to music.

Flashmob

Year 4 performing a Flashmob in the Co-operative store in Atherstone.

 

As part of Reach2’s“11 before 11” philosophy- (before reaching 11 years old our children will have had 11 fun and memorable experiences) both classes performed a dance to the song “Food Glorious Food” as part of their topic “Playlists”. Choreographed by Nikki Deeming, the children worked very hard during the spring half term to learn both the song and the dance moves by heart. Although nervous when they realised they would be performing the dance in such a public place, they did themselves and our school proud.

The local Folk group came to visit to share their knowledge of music and teach us some songs.

Spring 1

This half term, our topic is Misty Mountains.

To celebrate the end of our Misty Mountains topic, year 4 requested a trip to the Snowdome.

Parent Partnership Afternoon

As part of our innovate project, parents were invited in to help us make 3D models of a mountain. We began first of all with a topographical map which we then used as the basis for our 3D mountains. Using a variety of materials, we recreated the different layers of a mountain. 

Topic Entry Point

Upon our return to school after the Christmas break, we found a mysterious campsite on our playground. Who had abandoned the tent and what did its contents tell us about the occupant? Year 4 explored these questions and slowly an image of the person responsible was revealed. But wait, what about that footprint...?

Autumn 2

This half term our topic is 'Potions.' During this topic we will be looking at the use of herbs and other medicines.

In science we will explore solids, liquids and gases. This will encompass changes in state, and in particular, the water cycle. 

During our 'Witches and Wizards' topic entry day, we investigated mixing different potions. While we were combining ingredients we looked carefully to observe any chemical reactions that took place. Some mixtures fizzed, some changed colour and some smelled disgusting! We also investigated the capacity of different potion bottles. First we estimated, then we used cylinders to measure the actual capacity of each container. Finally we designed our own potion bottle and label. 

Autumn 1 

Our topic this half term is 'The Blue Abyss.' We will learn all about the oceans of the world and in particular the deepest parts and what lives there. We will be finding out what bioluminescence means and how it is used by organisms in the ocean.

 

To support our leaning we went on a trip to The Sealife Centre in Birmingham, where we saw a wide variety of different creatures. During our tour with a guide, we learned lots of facts and had a go at jumping as high as a penguin!

 

To round off our topic we designed and made our own bioluminescent squid or jellyfish using recycled materials. We invited parents in to take part. We finished our designs off with paint to make it glow in the dark to represent bioluminescence.
