Sharing StoriesWe partnered up with the Year 5s and shared our short stories in the library area. The Year 5s then read their work that they had recently completed in their creative writing unit. The children had a great time sharing their stories to their neighboring year group.
Science Week 2018
Today in art, we used clay to create sculptures of faces. As our current unit of work is based on Greek myths, some of us decided to create faces of mythological creatures. We used a range of sculpting tools to create our masterpieces, along with our hands, and some water to make the clay easier to shape.
Year 4 love Forest School. As we’ve done quite a lot of it this year, in this session we were given creative freedom to make whatever we wanted. Some of us made shelters, others made a bug-playground, a small group of children made a bridge, and some even made a drum kit out of found materials!
Abbeydale Industrial Hamlet
On Tuesday 23rd January 2018, the Year 4s travelled back in time to experience life in an industrial hamlet during the Industrial Revolution. We played with Victorian games, and explored the hamlet, learning about what role Sheffield played in its contribution to the Industrial Revolution.
Showroom Cinema Winners
In December, the Year 4 children went to the Showroom cinema to watch Paddington 2 as a reward for working so hard throughout the autumn term. The children took part in a competition, with the top prizes being two family tickets for the cinema. They each wrote a review of the film, and produced a piece of artwork to support this. Once submitted, the Showroom chose two winners. Here they are, holding their certificates and family tickets. Well done Hasnah and James!
As a reward for working extremely hard this first term in Year 4, the whole base took a trip to the Showroom Cinema to watch Paddington 2. There wasn’t a dry eye in the cinema afterwards, and we enjoyed sharing this experience together as a whole year group.
On 24th October, the Year 4s took a trip to the Botanical Gardens. We searched for the bear in the bear pit, explored the glass house and all of the exotic plants that were on display, and wandered around the wooded area whilst taking part in an autumn scavenger hunt. We loved this expedition to one of our greatest parks in the city, and despite the rain, we all came back smiling.
