This half term in Year 4, our classes have been learning all about the
significance of the Tower of London, which is a part of our local history. We have also been learning about so many exciting topics in our other subjects – science, computing, music instrument lessons, PE, literacy, maths and more! Here is a selection of some pictures of this half term…
Science: Electrical Circuits
A kettle – runs on electricity! electricity! Creating circuits It works! That Eureka moment… Teamwork! Helping each other to make a complete circuit They did it! Smiles of joy
Exploring task in teams Which materials are insulators and which are conductors? “A wire hanger is a conductor because it’s made from metal!” Making a circuit which included a zip! Maths: Place Value
Making big numbers We were learning about how many hundreds are in one thousand. We are confident at counting in 100s Using ten frames & counters to make 4-digit numbers. Computing: How networks communicate
Creating messages to send in our ‘network’. Learning about switches, routers and connected networks. Through Be Internet Legends, we practiced our skill of knowing what is real and what is fake online. We also used our Chromebook devices during English lessons for research. Using split-screen to write up notes about our research. Deciphering misinformation which has spread online. Blocking hackers from interrupting our networks! Using the Chromebooks to make notes for literacy Chrisp Street Market: Architect Project
