Year 4 - Italy
Welcome to Italy class. We are in Year 4 and our teacher is Miss Wild. Mrs Rix is our Teaching Assistant.
Well we have been back at school for several weeks now and can you believe that it will soon be half term! We have settled in well and have been working
In our topic on sound we have been finding out about how sound travels. We made a telephone with our partner and then investigated what happened when we used it in different ways. Children discovered the sound travelled better when the string was taut and if the cups were made of metal or cardboard. We even cut the string to make it shorter and tied a knot in the string to see what happened. It was a fun afternoon and everybody learnt something new.
We spent Thursday afternoon making cakes for the Macmillan Coffee Afternoon. It was a fantastic opportunity to use roles, learnt about in PATHS lessons, to help us work together successfully as a group. We also used our mathematical skills to weigh out all the ingredients. Now we are looking forward to eating them tomorrow afternoon. Yum, yum!
Last week A to Better came to school. They showed us how to do a bike check, including brakes, tyres and chain, then we got the chance to decorate our bikes. We went for a 5 mile ride around Wymondham...all of us...together!! Even Miss Wild, Mrs Rix and Mrs McMullan (who haven't been out on a bike for a while)
Year 4 had a very interesting day at Wymondham Abbey last week learning about life 900 years ago. Everyone had the opportunity to dress as a monk and sing a medieval chant. They experienced working as a scribe and tried writing with a quill pen. In the herb garden the children learnt about the properties of different plants and planted mustard seeds. Later in the day everyone created an illuminated letter using watercolour paints.
