Year 4 – Mrs Argrave
Animals Including Humans
Within our topic, we carried out an investigation into the human digestive system. We squashed bananas and biscuits into our digestive tract and watched as nutrients were absorbed and waste products were expelled from the body.
Investigating the digestive system.
Using the Kodu programme.
We have had great fun programming our rover to collect coins, find the correct answer to maths problems that we have set and have had different types of things happen to our rover if he gets an answer incorrect.
The work of Giocometti
We have created sculptures in the the style of Giocometti using aluminium foil and clay.
The achievements of the Ancient Egyptians.
We have had great fun learning all about the Ancient Egyptians. We learned how to carry out the mummification process and wrote using hierogliphics. We also designed and created our own Death Masks.
Hierogliphics - Can you guess what we have written?
Spring Term 2021 Topic Web
Dear Parents and Carers,
Here is our Topic web for this Spring Term 2021.
This is another busy term for us at Somerset Bridge, whether your child is working from home or in school. Reading at home is vitally important to your child – some form of reading with them every day will make a difference to their attainment at school. PE lessons will take place in school and, for those who are at home, there is a link on the weekly timetable.
Please do not hesitate to contact me on the LKS2 email address if you have any questions.
Thank you for your continued support during this period of lockdown.
Dear Taj Mahal class,
Miss Williams and I are working really hard to prepare some work for you during the national lockdown, including meetings on Google Classrooms instead of Zoom as we have done previously. You can find the meet link on your Google classroom stream – this link will not change, and you can use it whenever we have a meeting scheduled. It will look like this at the top of the page:
We have prepared a timetable for you to follow and attend the daily Google Meet meetings. It is really important you attend these meetings where we will be taking a daily register.
As before, you can use the following link on the school webpage, which will provide lots of other amazing links and activities for you to work on, if you need some more support.
We are both well and hope that you and your families keep safe during this period of quarantine.
In ICT, we have been designing and writing activities on the Scratch program in order to accomplish specific goals. We have programmed him to run into something, make his way around the screen and complete a lap of a racetrack that we have created.
We have been learning about stereotyping and the importance of accepting everyone for who they are. We have decided that it is good to be different and that embracing this difference leads to a much greater diverse and interesting community.
Enjoying our surroundings
We have some wonderful outdoor areas in our school and we utilise them as often as we can. We use these valuable moments to not only support our learning but to further our creative skills as well.
Hello everyone in Y4.
I hope you have had a super holiday and enjoyed some of the fantastic weather we had. I am really looking forward to seeing you on Monday 7th September. When you get into the cloakroom, you will find your name above a peg for you to put your coat on. Please put your lunch box in the plastic box that is next to our door. In your classroom, you will see many things that you recognise like a visual timetable, the days of the week, birthday candles and there will be a drawer with your name on it.
Ms Williams, Mrs Phillips and Ms Kidner are the other adults working in our class and I know they are looking forward to seeing you again too.
See you on Monday!
