What have we been learning?

Year 4 have been busy getting their garden ready for the ‘Dunstable in Bloom’ competition. They have enjoyed painting the breeze house and our raised garden. They have designed and created a big house, used recycled tyres and planted lots of flowers.

In Year 4 this term we have been investigating sound. In these photos we have created telephones out of string and plastic cups to investigate how sound travels. We created a long string telephone so we could communicate with Year 3 from their bubble! 

We have had a very exciting parcel delivered to Year 4 – an elf egg! We are using our knowledge of length to measure the baby elf and monitor it as it grows! We have also enjoyed a Christmas decoration day where we created Father Christmas light bulbs out of clay,  we also looked at tessellation patterns to create some fantastic Christmas cards!  

 This term, year 4 have been estimating numbers on a numberline. We used chalk and our playground to create number lines.

We have been using place value counters to help us with our learning in maths. We enjoyed this lesson because we were allowed to write on the tables!

Over lockdown a year 4 garden was created. Our sunflowers grew very tall! We have now chopped down the sunflowers and picked the seeds to save for growing next year.
