Science - Sound
Year 4 have been looking at sound as a unit in Science. They have understood that sound is a product of vibration and have tested this theory by making string telephones. The children understood that the vibration passes through the string into our ears. We also changed the pitch and volume of sounds when we made straw oboes.
Year 4 have been searching for their class creatures, around the school grounds. To keep track of the numbers of creatures, we have set up a study. We have been considering a number of different factors that could change the number of newts and ants we see.
Year 4 have been learning how to play ultimate frisbee in PE. Firstly, they practiced the rules using a ball and then they learnt how to pass the frisbee correctly, ensuring they held it accurately and followed the rules of the game.
Ancient Greek Pottery
The topic for year 4 is Ancient Greek Pottery and pupils have been learning about how they show the different areas of life in Ancient Greek times. The pupils have designed and begun making their own Ancient Greek Pots in art.
