Year 4 science

This term we have started our new Science topic which is all about sound! Last week we went on a sound walk around school. What sounds did you hear?

Then, we learnt about different instruments and what you needed to do to get them to make a sound. We learnt that the instrument makes a vibration that travels through the air. This then enters our ear and we can hear the sound.

Recently we had a special visitor in school to assess us for the IQM (Inclusion Quality Mark). 

This visitor came into our some of our lessons and was really impressed with what he saw! So much so that once again, we have been named a ‘Centre of Excellence’.

Well done Oxford Grove!

How do we make sure that everyone in our school is included?

Roman experience!

Last week we visited Chester and took part in a Roman experience – it was great fun and we learned a lot too!

Michal said “I liked being the leader of the Roman soldiers. I had to make the Roman soldiers use their armour for protection.”

Wiktor said “My favourite part was when we travelled back in time to learn more about how the Romans lived.”

Cole said “My favourite part was looking at all the artefacts in the museum.”

Lenix said “My favourite part was watching Mrs White and Miss Longmore have a battle with the swords.”

Grace said “I liked looking at the digging that the archaeologist did.”

At our school, we have lots of awards which we are very proud of. One of these awards is the Inclusion Quality Mark (Centre of Excellence).

This award means that everybody at our school gets a fair chance, and that we understand the importance of equality and diversity.

What does inclusion look like in our school?

Roman invasion!

Year 4 have been invaded by the Romans, led by Sargeant Stockton and her team of cruel soldiers! We experienced what it feels like to be invaded and have things taken away from us. After, we discussed invasions and whether we think they are still happening today. We then wrote a recount on the events of the day for a piece of cross-curricular writing in our topic books.

Can you write a recount about what happened on that afternoon?

Here are some pictures from the invasion!

Cross curricular maths – Roman numerals!

Our history topic is the Romans and Year 4 have been very enthusiastic about it so far! This week we used Roman numerals to measure our height and weight. We found it tricky at first but we had some experts by the end of the lesson!

Can you remember how to write your age in Roman numerals?
