Spring Term

Welcome back year 4! 

We began our term with lots of exciting activities based around amusement. The children investigated how they hear sound and made their lego ferris wheels spin on lego WEDO.

Amusement 

The children enjoyed learning about the circus and its founder: Phillip Astley. Whilst he did not call it a circus himself, he came up with idea of putting different talent together to create a show. The children wrote a biography about Philip Asltley.

We then used our biography skills to write about our fictional character Wild Boy.  Wild Boy: Amazon.co.uk: Jones, Rob Lloyd: 9781406354096: Books

Have a look at the examples below. 

We then enjoyed the story: Buddy's rainforest adventure. 

The children first made orangutans, then looked at the countries orangutans come from. Recycled Cardboard Zoo Animals! — super make it | Kids art projects,  Cardboard art, Animal crafts

Have a go at the Powerpoint Quiz to see what they know!

The children enjoyed acting out the story and thinking about how the main character feels at different stages of the story.

They wrote persuasive letters to the forestry commission to put an end to deforestation.

Year 4 enjoyed Science. We have looked at the states of matter: Solids, liquids and gases, the water cycle and sound. 

The children made musical instruments, string telephones, carbon dioxide (teacher lead) and experimented with fizzy drinks!

Autumn Term

Year 4 had a terrifying start to the year because a dragon had broken into the classroom to lay its eggs!

We had to decode a letter in Viking Runes to find out what we needed to do.

The children decoded the letter and were able to work out why the eggs were there and what they had to do.

On the Friday of the first week, the children got to meet Brent, the dragon whose eggs they had cared for.  

In the second week, we acted out the scene from 'How to Train a Dragon' when the characters entered the dragon's cave.

Butser farm 

Year 4 went on a trip to Butser farm. Here we learnt about the Anglo Saxons and the Vikings. We were archaeologists and sewers! 

The children also enjoyed writing with grass quills and carving into chalk.

Year 4 residential evening 2 update
11/06/2024 7:06 PM

We have had another super day today. We have been holding chickens, making fires, travelling on crates and climbing over the mighty challenge wall. We are really proud of the children for pushing themselves beyond their comfort zone, and they enjoyed themselves drinking the hot chocolate they made from the water they boiled. Now- fiesta night! See you tomorrow!

Year 4 residential evening update
10/06/2024 6:30 PM

We arrived safely and are having a great time. We have already fired balls using sling shots, balanced a giant ball above our heads and build land rafts. Ravenous children enjoyed their jacket potato lunches and ice lollies! All the children then went happily to their dorms and much fun was had making beds! We will try and get some photos on the website later tonight, after 8.00pm. See you all soon.

House Teams TT Rockstars Battle
30/06/2022 12:00 AM

Year 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 have been using TT Rockstars this year to learn and practice their times tables. They were excited to organise a TT Rockstars House Team battle before the end of the term, so we have arranged this for next week. From 9.00am Monday morning next week, until 3.00pm on Thursday, the children can collect points for their house teams by playing on TT Rockstars. The team with the most points will have an extra break on Friday afternoon to celebrate. 

The children will have access at school to play TT Rockstars at various points during the day next week, but they may also collect points by playing at home too. The competition will be open each day between the house of 7.30am and 7.30pm, once the competition starts on Monday, so please feel free to encourage your child to have a go at home too. 

We will let you know how we get on, and good luck to all the house teams!

World Maths Day
24/03/2022 12:00 AM

We ran two events using online maths subscription sites this week to celebrate World Maths Day.  Very well done to years 3 and 5 for their 'Top of the Rock' battles against St Bede's in times tables.  The top three children in each class have received certificates.  Also, well done to the 1000 Point Club members from years 4 and 5 who completed 20 challenges on Mathletics.  Alex was highest in year 4 and Emily was highest in year 5.  Finally, year 6 also competed in the Mathletics challenge and the highest scorer was Samuel.  In this event, Fairfields came 138th in the world and 41st in the country!

Spring Term

Welcome back year 4! 

We began our term with lots of exciting activities based around amusement. The children investigated how they hear sound and made their lego ferris wheels spin on lego WEDO.

Amusement 

The children enjoyed learning about the circus and its founder: Phillip Astley. Whilst he did not call it a circus himself, he came up with idea of putting different talent together to create a show. The children wrote a biography about Philip Asltley.

We then used our biography skills to write about our fictional character Wild Boy.  Wild Boy: Amazon.co.uk: Jones, Rob Lloyd: 9781406354096: Books

Have a look at the examples below. 

We then enjoyed the story: Buddy's rainforest adventure. 

The children first made orangutans, then looked at the countries orangutans come from. Recycled Cardboard Zoo Animals! — super make it | Kids art projects,  Cardboard art, Animal crafts

Have a go at the Powerpoint Quiz to see what they know!

The children enjoyed acting out the story and thinking about how the main character feels at different stages of the story.

Year 4 enjoyed Science. We have looked at the states of matter: Solids, liquids and gases, the water cycle and sound. 

The children made musical instruments, string telephones, carbon dioxide (teacher lead) and experimented with fizzy drinks!

Autumn Term

Year 4 had a terrifying start to the year because a dragon had broken into the classroom to lay its eggs!

We had to decode a letter in Viking Runes to find out what we needed to do.

The children decoded the letter and were able to work out why the eggs were there and what they had to do.

On the Friday of the first week, the children got to meet Brent, the dragon whose eggs they had cared for.  

In the second week, we acted out the scene from 'How to Train a Dragon' when the characters entered the dragon's cave.

Year 4 residential evening 2 update
11/06/2024 7:06 PM

We have had another super day today. We have been holding chickens, making fires, travelling on crates and climbing over the mighty challenge wall. We are really proud of the children for pushing themselves beyond their comfort zone, and they enjoyed themselves drinking the hot chocolate they made from the water they boiled. Now- fiesta night! See you tomorrow!

Year 4 residential evening update
10/06/2024 6:30 PM

We arrived safely and are having a great time. We have already fired balls using sling shots, balanced a giant ball above our heads and build land rafts. Ravenous children enjoyed their jacket potato lunches and ice lollies! All the children then went happily to their dorms and much fun was had making beds! We will try and get some photos on the website later tonight, after 8.00pm. See you all soon.

House Teams TT Rockstars Battle
30/06/2022 12:00 AM

Year 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 have been using TT Rockstars this year to learn and practice their times tables. They were excited to organise a TT Rockstars House Team battle before the end of the term, so we have arranged this for next week. From 9.00am Monday morning next week, until 3.00pm on Thursday, the children can collect points for their house teams by playing on TT Rockstars. The team with the most points will have an extra break on Friday afternoon to celebrate. 

The children will have access at school to play TT Rockstars at various points during the day next week, but they may also collect points by playing at home too. The competition will be open each day between the house of 7.30am and 7.30pm, once the competition starts on Monday, so please feel free to encourage your child to have a go at home too. 

We will let you know how we get on, and good luck to all the house teams!

World Maths Day
24/03/2022 12:00 AM

We ran two events using online maths subscription sites this week to celebrate World Maths Day.  Very well done to years 3 and 5 for their 'Top of the Rock' battles against St Bede's in times tables.  The top three children in each class have received certificates.  Also, well done to the 1000 Point Club members from years 4 and 5 who completed 20 challenges on Mathletics.  Alex was highest in year 4 and Emily was highest in year 5.  Finally, year 6 also competed in the Mathletics challenge and the highest scorer was Samuel.  In this event, Fairfields came 138th in the world and 41st in the country!

Year 4
