A Year 4 Class Post

Larch’s final post of 2020

In Larch, we have learned about lots of different things.

We have learned to write reports using what, why, when and where. We wrote our reports about Diwali and we also wrote some on Hitchin for our local geography project. We then used these skills that we  had learned to write a report independently about some of our favourite topics, including: myself, plants, Minecraft, football, video games and dragons.

In English, we also enjoyed the Day Box topic. We took the story ‘The Night Box’ and created our own versions called ‘The Day Box’ for Key Stage 1 children. We then took our stories and created books using our publishing and illustrating skills.

In Art, we looked at Renoir’s Umbrellas and we then created our own umbrellas using weaving skills. We focused on the different colours of the painting to try and replicate the umbrellas- Miss Shepherd thought they looked beautiful!

We also learned about electricity in Science and learned how to create a circuit using wires, bulbs, bulb holders and batteries. We used different amounts of equipment to see what happened to a bulb when we used a larger amount of batteries. We then recorded this in our Science books. These skills came in super handy when creating our D & T project, nightlights. At first, we started off looking at different night lights for research. After we had done our design, we started making our own nightlights. Once we had made our circuits, the next step was to paint it and decorate it. Finally, we evaluated our work, we wrote down what went well and what could be even better.


Here are some of the pupils favourite memories of year 4 so far:
