DT in Year 4

Year 4 adapted and tested their balloon powered cars. We discovered that changing the wheels helped some of the cars travel further.

Amazing Animals

This week we created our own mixed up animals.

We cut up different parts of animals and stuck them together to make a brand new one.

We are going to use these animals to create our own stories.

Science!! Looking at animals skeletons

This week we have been identifying and comparing animal skeletons.

Orienteering Day

Today is World Orienteering Day. Each year group, in school, took part in an orienteering event. We have lots of fun navigating our way around using different maps.

Year 4 are historians

Year 4 have been finding out about the life of Alexander Graham Bell. He invented many devices during his life time and was the first person to demonstrate the long distance phone call.


Today year 2 learnt how to ride bikes. Lots of fun was had by all despite the changing weather 🙂

Balloon Powered Cars

In Year 4 we are making balloon powered cars in DT. We built them but now we need to adapt them to ensure that they travel as far as possible. We decided that we might need to change the wheels, the shape of the car and the size of the balloon. We will let you know if our adaptations worked next week.

Lots of Challenges

We have loved our challenges this week in provision.
They have encouraged us to consolidate all the learning we have been doing and become more independent.

Maths – Fractions

In year 3 we are learning all about fractions so take a look at some of the practical work we have been getting up to.


In music, we have been listening and appraising different music and this week we started to practice playing the recorder to this term’s song – Dancing in the Street.
