Year 4

This week we carried out an investigation to find out whether custard is a liquid. The class were asked to punch the custard, pour it and to try and roll it into a ball. They wrote down what they observed and were asked to conclude whether or not the custard acted like a solid or a liquid in each case. The results were a real surprise to many of the children! Take a look at the photos above to see our findings. 

24/01/2020 - Solids, Liquids and Gases

This week we have been learning about solids, liquids and gases. We wrote our own definitions and listed some examples of each in a table. We then watched a video about the three states of matter. The children made their own notes and then drew a particle diagram of a solid, liquid and gas in their books. Soon, we will be carrying out an investigation to find out whether custard is a liquid. The class are very excited!
This week we completed our upcycling project. The children upcycled photo frames, wall clocks and plant pots. We also used recyclable materials (such as milk bottles) to make musical instruments. The class had a fantastic time and really showed their creative side. Take a look at the photos above to see what the children have made. 

15/11/2019 - Recycling Data

This week we looked at recycling statistics relevant to the UK. The children calculated how much waste the UK had produced over the past few years and created a bar chart to show how much of this waste was recycled. Well done everyone! 

08/11/2019 - 'Friendship Friday'

This Friday was 'Friendship Friday'. The children discussed what it means to be a good friend. They realised that although we are all the same, we also have differences and that these are to be celebrated and respected. In the spirit of the day, the children made a chain of reasons why their friends were special to them. You can see the chain in the photos above. We also produced posters for the 'Wates Construction Poster Competition'. The children have outlined how to stay safe on a building site and the potential risks a person might face when entering a site. 

Year 4 recently attended St. Fagan's National Museum of History to observe AG receive her award for winning the story competition. In preparation for the visit, the children started to learn about dementia. They found out that dementia describes a set of symptoms that may include memory loss and difficulties with thinking, problem-solving or language. They know that it is progressive, which means the symptoms will get worse over time.


The children had a hands on history session, listened to the winning entries being read and gave a performance of 'Remember Me' by Chris Mann. The audience were so moved, they were brought to tears. 


Please take the time to read AG's winning entry below. What a fantastic story! Da iawn AG! 

Winning Entry!


The Unforgettable Trip


Page one…

Hello my name is Emily and I would like to share a story about my Nanny, she is a very special person. My Nanny Pip has Dementia, but even if she has Dementia, I still really love her the way she is. Nanny Pip likes to take me on trips to lots of different places, but this trip has been my favourite.

Yesterday it was a very sunny day and Nanny Pip said “Do you want to go to the jungle?” That’s a little odd I thought “Maybe not the jungle Nanny, can we go to the beach instead?” She said “Great idea!”. I rushed around t find my swimsuit bucket, spade and of course my surf board. We set off to the train station, Nanny Pip and I were looking at the stops. Nanny Pip said “I think we should stop here” I said “No way that stop is to London, it will take hours!”. Nanny Pip said “oh is that not where we are going?”.” I think we should stop here, it says ‘To Barry Island’” I said.


Page three…

The train was really loud and bumpy, the train pulled to a stop and Nanny Pip told me to jump off the train. The door closed and I told Nanny Pip “You took us off at the wrong station!” Nanny Pip replied “Oh sorry, I must have got confused” and we waited for the next train to come. After about one hour the next train came so we hopped on it. In that train we travelled for ten minutes then the train stopped and the driver said “Jump off if you are going to Barry Island” so me and Nanny Pip went off the train.

We walked down to Barry Island and went down to the sand to have our picnic. Normally, Nanny makes jam sandwiches, but when I took my sandwich and bit into it, it had sand in it! I asked Nanny Pip “Why did you put sand in them?” Nanny looked confused and said “Oh, I thought that I put jam in the sandwich”. Soon after that horrible sandwich we went to get some chips and ice cream.


Page five…

I ordered my favourite ice cream – strawberry and Nanny Pip ordered the same as me. Nanny walked back to our table and I noticed her hands were empty. “Nanny where are our ice creams?”

“Oh sorry Emily! I paid for them but forget to take them!”. We walked back over to explain to the ice cream Man and he gave us our ice creams. After we ate it, we went down to the sea. Nanny Pip took my surf board and ran down to the sea, she hopped on and rode the highest waves I had ever seen!


Page six…

We came out of the sea and we went home and dried off.  Nanny looked a little bit tired after our adventure so we decided to head back home. On the train home I was thinking about our day. Even though we might not have many more days out together, I still have my Nanny and she will always have me.



The end.
