Year 4

Knights have been working hard to create their very own Roman animations! They researched and created backgrounds, designed their story boards and took a series of photos. which we then put together to create our animations!

This week, Year 4 used different objects made of different materials to investigate whether they were conductors or insulators.

Year 4 have started working on their new Science topic of Electricity. This week we have been building circuits and adding different components and cells. We also made our own switches and predicted what would happen when more components were added.

Happy Christmas to all our Year 4 families. Thank you all so much for your thoughtful cards and gifts and we hope you have a fantastic time over the holidays. Best wishes, the Year 4 team.

The elf in 4 Knights has been very naughty over the past couple of weeks.....

Year 4 had a wonderful celebration of all of our Greek learning! Children showed their baking and creative skills and we ended the day with a Greek feast!

Our crazy children made lots of effort for Crazy Hair Day and had lots of fun completing a Santa Dash to see if as a school, we could run enough laps to reach the North Pole!

Year 4 celebrated Diwali this week. We were lucky enough to enjoy some childrens' presentations and we also created some impressive mandalas!

Some of the Y4 children were lucky enough to take part in the Sports Festival this week. They challenged themselves and had great fun!

Year 4 have been working very hard on their Sketching skills this week and have created these fantastic feathers using the backwards and forwards drawing technique!

Please find a helpful Parent Guide to TTRockstars below. This document helps to explain what the different game modes are, how the game can be altered to match your child's level of challenge, as well as some helpful troubleshooting tips. We hope you find it useful.

As we approach Parents Evening, we often get asked for advice on how to inspire and encourage reluctant readers. Please find some helpful tips in the pictures below for how to help support a love of reading.

Year 4 had a brilliant time with Grip Adventure! We took part in bushcraft, archery, cooked popcorn over the fire, map-reading and even had a trip on a narrow boat!

Year 4 have finished their eggshell enquiry as part of their Science into what effects different liquids have on our teeth. We used eggshells to represent teeth, made sure it was a fair test and observed the jars over time. We were shocked by the final results!

A big well done to these superstars!

A fantastic effort from Year 4 with their Autumnal cups for the PTA raffle!

Year 4 have thoroughly enjoyed using their knowledge of Ancient Greece to create their own amphoras. The children designed their Greek amphoras, thinking about colour and shape. They then painted their designs and allowed them to dry before carefully etching them. Take a look at our fantastic amphoras below...

Happy Diwali to all those who celebrated this wonderful festival! In Year 4, we were incredibly fortunate to have a number of children who led presentations about Diwali, what it celebrates and means to them. Thank you for your amazing contributions! We look forward to celebrating other meaningful festivals throughout the year.

A very big well done to these children who were praised this week!

What a fabulous start to the Autumn 2 Half Term! The children used their knowledge about teeth, what they look like and their uses; to make their very own collaborative set of human teeth out of play dough. What super sculptors you all are!

Well done to these children who received praise certificates this week!

Knights have thoroughly enjoyed honing their gymnastics skills in PE this half term! They focused on developing their flexibility, strength, technique, control and balance. They even showcased their new skills in a paired routine challenge! You really challenged yourself to work well as a team Year 4! Well done!

Year 4 had great fun working collaboratively to learn about and compare events from the Ancient and Modern Olympic Games in History! Well done Year 4!

A very big well done to the children who were praised this week!

EXTRA, EXTRA, READ ALL ABOUT IT!!!! Ancient Greecian Pottery was unearthed in the playground of Springfield Primary by Year 4! The children will be using this astounding find as inspiration for their Newspaper articles in English this week!

Learning chess is always a highlight in Year 4. The children love to learn about strategy and logic with Mr Dainty.

A very big well done to these superstars!

It is wonderful to be back in the swing of P.E. with our fabulous coaches on a Wednesday. Here we are engaging in Multisports during a break in the rainy weather!

Year 4 developing their drawing skills by focusing on line, pattern and colour in Sketching!

Year 4 have loved using Google Earth, maps and atlases to research more about modern and Ancient Greece in Geography. The children recapped prior knowledge about the continents, oceans, poles and equator and then progressed onto comparing the physical and human features of modern and Ancient Greece, as well as discussing how these features compared with the United Kingdom.

Research using Secondary Resources: Animals Including Humans

Using technology to conduct research using secondary sources, provided the children with the perfect opportunity to use their Computing Skills. They thoroughly enjoyed challenging themselves to use various websites and safe search engines to find out more about human and animal digestive systems in Science. Way to work as a team Year 4!

A huge well done to the children who were praised this week!

What a fantastic start to the term Year 4 has had! The children have had great fun exploring their new Science topic, Animals including Humans, where they used everyday objects to recreate the human digestive system. Through utilising their fantastic collaborative skills, the children enjoyed exploring how food is digested in the human body. This enabled them to get an up close look into what happens in each of the digestive organs and understand how excretion occurs. This investigation provided an exciting hook for their new Science topic as well as enabling them to gain extensive knowledge. 

At Springfield we care, learn and achieve together
