This term 4M are learning about electricity in science.  Before we begin to investigate the key aspects of the subject the children had the opportunity to roll up their sleeves and have a go themselves.  Everyone was able to make a circuit, then progress to powering a buzzer, absolutely fantastic kids!

Children acting out the 'cry wolf' story in English.

DT

After our AMAZING assembly, parents were  invited back to class to help us begin creating out purses.  Not only are the children in year 4 willing to try new things, but it is clear that their parents are also quite talented when it comes to using a variety of different stitches for visual effect.

NTN (Nick Tilly Nunn)

At Shaw we begin our math lessons with practical activities that allow us to observe and assess the children's understanding of certain concepts and theory before we begin the learning process.  They are generally fun and allow the children to challenge themselves and move around the room.

 

This lesson was looking at different methods used to multiply.

P.E.

Children are working in groups to control the ball and developing their hand eye coordination, along with small group interaction.

ATTENDANCE

We were so proud that we won the attendance trophy in Autumn, as all the children made it to school on time everyday.

OVERVIEW

This term we are learning about mountains and volcanoes in geography, and in DT creating our own 3D map using different materials, which will produce a variety of textures and heights.  In music we are learning to play the drums, it is a noisy affair, but really good fun.  In P.E. we are learning a variety of team games outside and inside we are learning how to use our bodies to create movements and develop routines.  Finally, in PSHE we are discovering the strengths that we posses and how to develop other skills, as we all realise that we are on a journey and no one is good at everything.  We are looking to the future and realising our dreams, creating pictures and aspiration's of what we will look like and particularly the job that we will do.

Photos to follow.

SPRING TERM

This term we are learning about mountains and volcanoes through the topic of geography.  4M are creating their own 3D map with mountain ranges, made completely from recycled material, GO SHAW!!!

ENGLISH

In English this term we have been researching, sorting and writing own non-chronological reports.

During this half term we will continue to learn about volcanoes, how they are created and where to find them. In P.E. we will be creating, learning and teaching others team games and more gym work indoors.  Still bucket drumming and learning about sound, along with some narrative writing and creating our own instructions text.  We will have the opportunity to learn about a range of different artists, who have a unique style, and adapt their work.  Watch this space, more to follow?

science sound

In science we made our own old fashioned telephones and tested the sound levels using a DB meter.

WORLD BOOK DAY

It was amazing and we really enjoyed dressing up, later we invited parents back to have some fun in 4m.

We also had the opportunity to take part in a workshop during 'world book day'

Summer term (second half)

Hello again parents and carers, we have another fun packed and exciting half term ahead.  Here are some of the amazing things we are getting up to in 4M.

As you may be aware our school topic is 'The Tudors', a really important and significant period of history, which still has ripples throughout English society today.  We will be comparing monarchs such as Elizabeth I and Victoria within a non-chronological report and creating diary entries as a participant within that time frame in English.

In maths we continue to smash records using 'Rock Stars' and honing our methods and operations, using real life word problems that we may face in the future.

In DT we will also examine what it takes to create our own Tudor menu and make bread 'yummy' (I really love bread! Mr Murphy). 

In topic studying the food brought back from the New World and the explorers, who travelled there.

Continuing to develop our French phrases, this term around places to visit in France.

Through the study of religion, we will examine how religious and non-religious groups have similar rules, Which they live by such as respect for all differences and beliefs.

In ICT we will create non-chronological reports, which we will share in the editing process and the adding of shared information.  Carrying out research and fact finding from the internet and books.

 

That is all for now, we will be sure to share what we have learnt and the fun that we've had with lots of exciting photographs, :)
