As part of our science work on sound we held a workshop in the hall.  In this workshop we were investigating sound waves by using rice on a drum, tuning forks in water, balloons, our voice box, rulers and stringed instruments.  We also looked at the effect on a non-newtonian fluid when sound is passed through it. We had great fun and lots of learning took place.

15 - 19 June

This week was Enterprise week.  Each class was given £20.00 and had to see how they could grow this into a healthy profit. In Year 4 we decided to offer a car washing service and this proved to be very successful making a profit in the region of £350

 

On Monday we went to Morrisons to look behind the scenes and also carried out some market research in the other supermarkets to find out out how much people were prepared to pay for a car wash and what they expected.

 

Mr Hill visited us on Wednesday morning to tell us about the work of an accountant and to help us with our business plan, ensuring we understood the difference between profit and loss, service and product.

 

On Wednesday, Thursday and Friday we then washed cars! It was great fun and everyone worked very hard. Thank you to all the staff and parents who allowed us to wash their cars.

Today, Year 4 visited Cuffley Camp as part of our history and geography work on Early Settlers.  We learnt how to build shelters, make fire and lay tracks as well as improving our orienteering and map skills.  It was a great day out in the woods, outdoor learning at its best.

As celebration of Red Nose Day and to assess our learning about rivers, we decided to host the first Cranbourne Great River Bake Off.  The children were given a selection of cakes, biscuits, icing and decorations and asked to produce a show-stopper on the theme of rivers.  Such fun was had by all and epic geography took place. Enjoy looking at the photographs.  Year 4 Mr Bath (Sue) and Miss Wilkinson (Mel) are so proud of you all.  Great teamwork, great learning great fun!!!  Many thanks to our very own Mary Berry (Mrs Semark) and Paul Hollywood (Miss Chandler) for judging the competition.

Today was Ethiopia day at Cranbourne and Year 4 had fun finding out about life in Addis Ababa and the surrounding area.  We looked at pictures and DVD clips of the area to identify similarities and differences to England, smelt spices, ate red lentil and sweet potato curry (prepared by Mr Bath), smelt Ethiopian coffee and had great fun play Mancala which is thought to be the world's oldest board game.  We read an Ethiopian tale which suggests that the Mancala (or Gebeta board as it is sometimes known) is magical.  Another highlight of the day was experiencing what it is like to drive on the roads in Ethiopia where the rules of the road change everyday.  We can understand why people prefer to walk or run!!

There was great excitement in Year 4 today as we heard that 41 of our Mini Sagas are going to be published.  Don't forget to check your child's entry and make any amendments by the end of the month so that they are included in the book.  Well done everyone for this great achievement.

16 December 2014

Today Year 4 were fortunate enough to have a visit from Lauren Surrey's Mum who is the senior science technician at John Warner School. She did some chemistry with us and we learnt about chemical reactions.  We used the chemical reaction to make elephant toothpaste.  Watch our video to see what happened.

Today we celebrate a Tudor Christmas. Our parents came in to see us perform on our Ukuleles for the first time and present the Tudor dances that we had been learning.  We then all enjoyed a Tudor feast  surrounded by the smell of pomanders which we had made.  This was a great end to our Tudor work this term,

Year 4 have been asked by Sparkle PLC to investigate the amount of sugar in drinks in order to help them to develop a new toothpaste which will be good to remove sugar from teeth. So far we have looked at the effect of sugar on teeth (using egg shells to represent teeth, used ingredients labels to help us discover how much sugar is in various drinks and investigated four toothpastes which you can buy from the shops.  This week we will be making our own toothpaste which we are all very much looking forward to.  Below are some photos showing the process so far - keep coming back to see more of the results of our investigation.

20th November - 25th Anniversary of the UNCRC

 

On the 20th November, children in Year 4 celebrated the 25th anniversary of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child. As a Rights Respecting School (RRS) we felt this was a really important day, and so to show our support for the UNCRC, we decided to create Podcast to explain why the Articles in the Convention are important to us. 

 

Below you will find a few of the Podcasts we have recorded. We hope you enjoy them!

To end our Rugby PE unit Year 4 played an inter-class rugby tournament today.  The children played in their colour teams. Mr Bath's Green team were the overall winners, but everyone played really well.  We were both really impressed with how much the children have learnt this half-term and how their skills have developed. Well done everyone.

As part of our science work , the children in Year 4 practised cleaning their teeth for 2 minutes to see how long it actually was.  This was great fun.  We are now keeping a record of how often we clean our teeth at home and may be using our new toothbrush and toothpaste provided by the Colgate Bright Smiles, Bright Futures project.

It was very exciting this morning as some of our parents joined us for our English lesson.  They helped us to be sentence doctors and correct mistakes in sentences and then we ordered the story of Macbeth, that we have been studying this week. Finally we introduced them to a story mountain and began to plan our own murder mystery stories. Great fun was had by all, and hopefully a lot of learning took place.

Many thanks to all the parents for the amazing costumes. We look forward to wearing them again before the term is out.

As part of our science work about digestion we made stomachs and intestines.  This was messy but fun.  The plastic bag was our stomach to which we added a slice of bread and "gastric juices" in the form of orange juice.  We observed the changes to the bread at one minute intervals and gave the stomach a helping hand by shaking our bags! The digested food then entered the tights intestines and continued its journey!  You can see what it turned into by the end!!!
