Miss Bytheway's Class
Year 4 took part in an amazing Diwali workshop to learn about Diwali through the medium of dance. It was fantastic to learn about good conquering evil, and light conquering dark whilst having so much fun!
For anti-bullying week Year 4 have read the lovely book ‘Monty the Manatee’. This book explores themes of bullying and friendship and emphasises the importance of being kind. Once we read the story we got creative and drew different scenes from the story, in each scene we thought about how Monty would be feeling and the behaviours that caused him to feel this way. Most importantly, we thought about what we would do in this situation to ‘make a noise’ about bullying!
Year 4 have taken to the art room to create beautiful portraits of the Tudor monarchs! We began by thinking of proportion when sketching, then used the colours red, white and yellow to make the perfect skin tone. We then added the finer details to our portraits and the outcomes are AMAZING!
During Science this half term Year 4 have been looking at sound. We conducted experiments to see how vibrations work and how they travel through different mediums. During our experiments, we witnessed the tuning fork making the water ripple due to the vibrations. We also discovered that the closer the rice was to the object hitting the drum, the higher it bounced as the vibration was stronger.
During our History topic this half term we have learnt so much about the Vikings! We looked closely at sources that were found at the burial of Sutton Hoo and thought about what that meant for a time that was once described as the ‘dark ages.’
