This week Year 4 had our last swimming lesson and lots of us earned our KS2 swimming certificate!
In Maths we have started exploring negative numbers and we're now really confident with counting back from 0. We have also spent some time on Timestables Rockstars so that we are more confident with using this at home.
In English we're really enjoying acting as journalists and writing newspaper articles about the train robbery in Ruckus.
This term in Art we've been studying a variety of European artists. This week we were studying Coco Chanel and we learnt that her first store was a hat shop so we had a go at making our own hats out of paper and then showed them off in our own fashion show!

Chaffinches have had a really exciting start to Year 4!
In English we have been focusing on the film 'Ruckus'. Through this, we have written character profiles for the main characters and used this to create Wanted posters for the villainous brothers. We have also started to create a newspaper article to report the facts of the robbery and had a brilliant time interviewing a witness of the crime.
During our science lessons we have been learning about sound. Through a practical experiment, we have learnt that sound travels through vibrations and can travel through solid objects, liquids and gases.
We have been really enjoying our swimming lessons and our confidence is growing each week!
