Year 4


Welcome to class 4's website. Throughout the year we will be updating this page with activities we have done.


AS part of our topic on George Stephenson and early trains we had a go at designing our very own trains made out of whatever we could find! Year 4 were extremely inventive with what they came up with and did an excellent job evaluating them.


 Building Bridges DT challenge

 Using only paper straws, string, plastic cups, 1m of tape and pipe cleaners can you make a bridge? Year 4 had a go and made some surprisingly strong structures! And of course the best bit was testing them to destruction!



Roman Sailing Boats

In science we incorporated our Roman topic and learnt about forces that act upon sailing boats. We had a go at making our own Roman boats and then sailed them using a fan to provide the force they needed to move.



Our Very Own Time Team Dig

During the first half term our main focus has being all around the Roman. We started off learning about how we find primary evidence of historical events by finding artifacts and inferring what the past was like. As part of this we conducted our own Time Team style dig on the school fields and found some interesting things.
