A massive 'well done' to 4S for completing the final assessments of Year 4. They should all be extremely proud of the learning they have completed this year and the new knowledge they have shown off. To end the week, we went to Victoria Park to complete some Geography Fieldwork tasks. We linked the fieldwork to our learning unit of 'Rainforests' and made a comparison between the nature areas within Victoria Park and the tropical rainforests. We used the learning from this weeks lesson (based on the layers of the rainforest) to help us look for similarities and differences. Take a look at Freddie, Peter and Myah's work to learn more about the rainforest layers.

There's been some great learning going on in Year 4 this week. We've looked at angles in Maths, scene-setting in English (and practising our editing skills) and lots of reading of our exciting class text - The Land of Roar. In Geography, we've been meteorologists by giving our own weather reports based on the climate in tropical rainforests. We also took part in a webinar hosted by the W.W.F., listening to a scientist explain the work that he does in the jungles, which included some fascinating pictures of the animals found in the Amazon. In Science, we went on a walk around the school to listen out for different sounds, creating our own sound maps. We used compasses to help us be more accurate with pinpointing the location of the sounds. 

Tuesday 14th June 2022 - Sound Workshop

 

Year 4 were excited to have the Mad Scientists come in to kick-start our new science topic: Sound! 

We learned about the vibrations sound makes and how it travels through solid, liquids and gases in waves.

Working together, we had a go at seeing how we can make sounds higher and lower in pitch. 

Here's some of the pictures of the day:
