Autumn Term 2020

 

All The Fun Of The Fair!

 

1

 

Welcome back to the Autumn Term. I hope you all had a fantastic summer break and that you are feeling refreshed, raring to go and ready to climb aboard this exciting, electrifying and exhilarating ride that is the Year 4 Autumn Term topic, 'All The Fun Of The Fair'.

The topic is scientific themed, investigating the science behind how fairground rides work through the application of forces to electricity. We will continue to explore the theme in P.E, DT and Art through the medium of dance, textiles and paintings of LS Lowry. Additionally, we will be learning about the history of fairgrounds and how they have developed over time as well as researching and learning about the great pioneers in fairground development.

So, Roll Up, Roll Up and enjoy all the fun of the fair!

September 2020 - Science

 

Y4 reflected on their learning of magnets then applied their understanding to create a game that used a magnets magnetic force to make an object move. The class came up with either a fishing game, a race track or a maze. See below for the teams and their finished games.

See below the teams and their finished games. We all had great fun trying them out with each other, even Mr Hodgson had a go!

Y4 continued their learning about magnets: which metals they are attracted to; what the parts are called and why. In addition they learnt how they are used in a compass. Using a compass direction template, a bar magnet, a small flat dish and a bowl of water, the class made a working compass which they then used to locate ‘treasure’ hidden in the playground, using compass directions provided. Super team work.

September 2020 - Art

Y4 focused on the colour palette used by LS Lowry and discussed why he used certain colours. They then experimented with water colours by practicing mixing colours.

September 2020 - P.E

The class continued the focus on invasion games skills by focusing on 'dribbling'. Using 3 different games: football, basketball and hockey, the children set up their own course for each other to navigate by means of dribbling the ball. Key skills included: demonstrating control and fluency when moving the ball; changing direction and speed and being able to look up when travelling with the ball.

Y4 continued their learning about forces and in particular magnets. The class learnt what a magnet is, why it works then investigated which objects were magnetic and those that were non-magnetic recording their findings whilst looking for a link between the magnetic objects.

September 2020 - Art

Year 4 continued their focus on the work of LS Lowry by learning how he created his famous ‘match stick men and women’. Using only paint brushes, their fingers or cotton wool buds the children had a go at recreating the body shapes for themselves.

In science, as part of the Forces & Magnets focus, the learning was all about Friction: what it is and how it affects the motion of an object. The class investigated how different surfaces create more/less friction by setting up a ramp to then see how high the ramp needed raising before the model car moved. Lots of discussions, making predictions, measuring - using those maths skills - and then explaining our findings in a write up.

September 2020 - Hockey

Contiuning the theme of Invasion Games, the class focused on the game of hockey. This session was all about how to hold the stick correctly and being safe when in play plus learning how to control the ball using the stick whilst moving.

September 2020 - ICT

The class tried out the ICT suite for the first time this term. The children recapped their knowledge and skills of publishing and then set to work on designing and creating a topic book cover that would be full of interest and colourful.

 September 2020 - Physical Education

The children in Year 4 enjoyed P.E out in the afternoon sunshine. We focused on skills linked to our main theme this term, 'Invasion Games'. Lots of swerving and dodging!
