Answer these questions as you go along to help gather your thoughts and ideas:

1.What equipment will I need?

2.How did I make the parachute?

3.What is my prediction? (What do I think will happen?)

Energetic Engineers - If I Built a Car

 

In our topic this term we will be looking at how to build a car to cross a bridge. 

Today we read the story If I Built a Car by Chris Van Dusen. We talked about the different features of the car and have started designing our own cars!

 

Your Topic Home Learning Task this week is to design and label your own car smiley

 

Watch this video of the story being read aloud to help you design your own car:

Below is a picture of what labelling parts of a car looks like.

St David’s Day

A land of rugged mountains

A land of finest state

The sound of rushing rivers

Gives us cause to celebrate.

 

A land of ancient forests

Green valleys, grazing sheep

Gives the people of St David

A land they wish to keep.

 

Follow the red dragon flag

In parades led by Welsh bands

Raise voices in the choirs

To salute this lovely land.

 

For here in Wales, or far away

The Welsh remember still

And on St David’s day with pride

Wear leek or daffodil.

Glamorgan Cricket Ground

On Wednesday 10th January we visited Glamorgan Cricket Club . We enjoyed dressing up in cricket gear and shirts, took part in fielding and batting and visited the Media Box where all the journalists would watch and report on the cricket. We felt like cricket stars ready to win The Ashes!

Dunraven Bay

On Monday 15th January we visited Dunraven Bay on a class trip as part of our Eisteddfodd entry at Tredegardville Primary School. A local poet joined us on our journey to help discuss the sights, sounds and smells that could be used in our poems. We had a fantastic day exploring the beach and even got wet through to our socks!

Singing Carols with the Golden Oldies

We were very fortunate to be invited to the day centre next to St Germans Church to sing a selection of Christmas Carols with the "Golden Oldies" and Kate who puts on these fantastic events. We sang, chatted and danced with them and spread a great deal of Christmas cheer, a jolly good job year 4!

To help us gain an insight into what it was like to be Roman and what they got up to we had a wonderful time exploring Caerleon, the Roman Fortress. We marveled at the Roman baths and pretended we were Gladiators in the Amphitheatre. We explored the museum and became Roman soldiers and school children.

 

 

 

To help us learn all about team work we ventured on a trip out to Storey Arms. This trip would test our co-operation and team work ability but we still managed to have lots of fun. We enjoyed working together and learning outside of the classroom. We completed a wobbly maze, crane skills and orienteering.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We have just started our new topic of the Romans and we were very lucky to have Evan Chapman come into school to talk to us all about the Romans and what they did. 

We asked him lots of tricky questions.

 

 

 

 

 

 

We have recently finished our topic of 'Energetic Engineers' where we looked at forces and their effects. 

We then created toys out of recycled plastic bottles to demonstrate our understanding of construction and knowledge of how to create a circuit. We tested them and showed them to Year 3 of how they worked and how we made them. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We were lucky to have our very own Father Phelm come into our class and we got the chance to interview him about what it is like to be a vicar. He answered all of our interesting questions and even our bizarre ones!

Hi Year 4, we would like to say a massive thank you for taking part in our pink and blue day and raising an amazing £60 for Marie Curie and Holme Towers Hospice. Marie Curie have sent us a message to say thank you and we want to share it with you:

 

Thank you Mrs Proctor

Thank you! We really appreciate your £60.00 gift that you’ve donated in memory of Jacqueline Burt. It’ll make a real difference to people living with terminal illness and their families.

The generosity of kind supporters like you makes it possible for people with a terminal illness, and their families, to get the care and support they need, for example through hands-on care in their homes or in one of our hospices.

Dear Mums and Dads,

We're really looking forward to our trip to Storey Arms next Thursday (17/11/2016)! While we appreciate that the trip is quite expensive we feel that it would give the children an opportunity to enjoy new experiences like being in the mountains, walking through forests and rock climbing under the watchful eye of trained instructors. This is usually a trip that your children will never forget, and will value for years to come. Please note that the order for grab bags has already been completed, so we request that you pack a sandwich bag with healthy food for your children if you have not ordered one already.

Welcome to year 4, we have already got lots of fun things planned!

Here is your first challenge: Our topic this half term will be Energetic Engineers, so can you draw a famous tower in your homework book? Here are some ideas: The Eiffel Tower, The Leaning Tower of Pisa and The Shard. I bet that you can think of some others. There is a prize for the best one.
