This half term in Year 4, we have started our new topic called ‘What thrives in Halliwell?’ This is all about exploring the different plants, animals and habitats that live in our local area. 

Today we started our topic by looking at what plants and animals live in our school grounds. We went on a plant and mini-beast hunt. What plants and animals did you find today Year 4? What did you learn about where they live?

We are looking forward to learning more about plants and animals this half term!

Easter in Year 4L

On Wednesday 10th April, my class went on Purple Mash and we had to research about Easter. Here are some facts I found out:

That it is important to have Hot Cross Buns because if you realised it has a cross on top to represent Jesus.
Easter eggs are involved in Easter because it represents the symbol of new life. ( Personally I like MALTESERS egg.) 9.5kg of chocolate is sold each Easter.
On Easter Sunday, loads of people go to church to celebrate Easter with their family. Usually on Easter Sunday, there is a Holy Communion.
At some schools they do different traditions . For example they could be painting eggs, doing Easter mosaics with colour code and many more activities.
Easter is a very important celebration to some Christians.

Did you know that in France helicopters fly over people’s gardens and pour eggs from the sky!
Please comment back and tell me what you did at Easter!
Have a good Easter!!

Easter Sunday!

On Easter Sunday people celebrate by egg hunts and making hot crossed buns. Easter is also a Christian celebration. Painting eggs is a very popular Easter thing and most children do it!

This afternoon, we learnt about the Easter story and researched Easter traditions. We  wrote on Purple Mash all about Easter. Do you know why we celebrate Easter? Or when did bunnies come in? The bunny came in because it’s a baby and we celebrate new life. Everyone thinks it is just the chocolate but it is not. It is about remembering the Christian celebration and how Jesus died and came back to life. We celebrate this on Good Friday and Easter Sunday.

This half term in music we have been singing an African song and beginning to add percussion and beats to it. 

What is our song and what have you enjoyed about this half term in music?

Some children have also been learning brass outside of school and on a Friday morning with Mr Dunkley since September. This afternoon, they performed some pieces to us. Wow! Well done! You all performed brilliantly as a team!

Morning Maths!

I was excited to see my mum! My mum helped me. I did column addition and subtraction. It was a hard one and I struggled with it a tiny bit but we helped each other.
