Mexico Class – Year 4


Welcome to Mexico class. Mrs Taylor is our teacher.  Mrs Forsdick and Mrs Laker-Jones are our teaching assistants.

Please refer to the writing expectations in lower Key Stage 2.  I have provided information on expectations for both Year 3 and Year 4 to show progression.

Year 4 – local study – Wymondham Abbey

January 15, 2021

Blended learning.  I am so proud of everyone in Mexico Class with their brilliant attitude and enthusiasm for their learning both at home and at school.  A very big WELL DONE to you all!

Medieval bosses and corbels.

After our virtual tours of Norwich Cathedral and Wymondham Abbey this week, we carried out some observational sketches of bosses and corbels.
Once we had done this, the children used their imaginations and produced some FANTASTIC work both at home and at school!

Have a look.

Why was the Roman army so successful?

December 8, 2020

This week in Year 4 we have been investigating why the Roman Army was so successful.

We discovered that:

They were a fine fighting machine.  The men were trained hard by Centurions.

They had the right equipment – helmet, shield, hobnailed sandals, armour

They had weapons – gladius (short sword), dagger, pilium (spear)

They were organised – legions of 5,000 men, battle plans, formations and tactics like the Tortoise (or testuno).

We had lots of fun taking orders from different Centurions!

Year 4 PE

November 27, 2020

This week we have been continuing our learning on invasion games and hockey.

We have been recapping our dribbling skills, and learning to stop, control and pass the ball to another player.

French: Bonjour!

November 27, 2020

This week we have been learning to talk about our names.

Comment t’appelle tu?

Je mapelle ………..

What is your name?  Practise at home with your family!

Science Y4: Electricity – Conductor or Insulator?

November 27, 2020

This week we have been carrying out a test to see whether materials are conductors or insulators.

We set up a working circuit first, and then added different objects to see if the bulb or buzzer would still operate.  Lots of our predictions were correct!

This week Year 4 have been investigating electrical circuits in science.

November 19, 2020

We have made sure that we understand what each component does, and have connected a bulb, a motor and a buzzer.

We learnt what we need to allow electricity to flow, and made predictions and tested different circuits to see if they would work.

We then looked at the symbols for electrical circuits and drew a diagram of our own.

November 19, 2020

After looking at lots of poems, we have created our own ‘Naughty Pet Poems’ display.

We hope you like it!
