This half term year 4 have been researching about the life and work of Andy Goldsworthy. We discovered that he is an artist who works with natural resources to create magnificent, sustainable pieces of art. To present our findings, we worked in mixed ability groups to create mood boards that included both key dates and information, as well as examples of our favourite pieces. Following our research, we designed and created our own compositions, working in the outdoor area to bring them to life.
Children in Year 4 and 5 will be performing in their Spring Production on Wednesday 27th and Thurday 28th March. There will be a 9.30am and 1.45pm performance on both days.
The performance times to which you are invited are:
We estimate that the performances will last for up to 60 minutes. Parents/carers who have watched the afternoon performance and will be collecting their children should exit the hall and wait on the playground outside their children’s classes for them to be released from classrooms at the end of the day.

In year 4 this week, we have spent the mornings rehearsing for the Spring Production. During English we have continued our work by completing non-chronological reports using all the correct features, whilst in maths we have been adding and subtracting mixed numbers as part of our work with fractions. Towards the end of the half term, there was a project evening where we were able to share our amazing homework projects.
This term in Year 4, we have been learning about Anglo Saxons, fractions, diary entries and non-chronological reports. As part of our Anglo Saxon unit, we made little Anglo Saxon buildings with cereal boxes, lollipop sticks and paper. We even got to paint them but brown paint is really hard to mix! Everyone loved it. Next we focused on fractions. Lots of us found this really hard and challenging but we all helped each other out. We’ve learnt what mixed and improper fractions are and how to change them. We even learnt how to find equivalent fractions. Sometimes this is easy but sometimes this is really hard. We wrote diary entries about our class text: Freedom for Bron. We had to pretend to be lots of different characters. Finally, we have also been learning about non-chronological reports. We were learning about Mars and Tim Peake and had to write this in any order that we liked. It had to be written in the present tense.
In Year 4 this week, the children have been consolidating their understanding of place value in maths, and using prepositional phrases, adjectives and adverbial phrases to engage readers with their stories. In science the children have been conducting various experiments to establish how sound travels. Watch this space for some photographs and observations.
