Class 4

Welcome to Class 4


We hope you enjoying seeing all the things we get up to in Class 4. We will include photos and examples of work we do in class and any useful documents and letters. Full information on what the children will be learning this year can be found under the 'Key Information' button and then 'Curriculum'. Happy reading!

Maths can be fun! Place value work

We worked together in History to decide where would be a better place to live - Sparta or Athens

Positive Minds

We have started our 10 week Positive Minds programme run by Watford FC. This week was an introduction to Mental Health. One task was to think about reasons why people may not want to talk about their mental health. We used 'Ellie the Elephant' to stick up all our ideas and talk about them as a class. 


Class 4 now have a set of Micro:bits. The BBC Micro:bit is a pocket sized computer with lots of features you can program. This week, we programmed the Micro:bits to become fortune tellers, asking questions to see what the answer would be!

here's the program we created and downloaded to the Micro:bit

here's the program in action!

R.E. - Acrostic Poems

To finish our R.E. topic on Christianity - the children wrote some beautiful acrostic poems about the importance of Christmas to Christians. 

Python Programming

Class 4 worked hard to program a Turtle Race game in Python. We learnt how important accuracy is when using a text-based programming language. It was hard to 'debug' when things didn't go right! Here are some examples of their work:

Skittles Science

We had fun in science observing what happens when we added hot water to a plate of skittles - the results were amazing!

We had a fun maths lesson to remind us all about place value.

Science - September 2020

To kick off our 'Properties and Changes of Materials' topic, we had a go at Dancing Raisins.

This is a great investigation to see an interaction between the 3 states of matter - solid, liquid and gas. We wrote a prediction of what we thought would happen to the raisins when we put them in lemonade. Then we watched them dance and wrote down our observations. 

Dancing Raisins!

Some more of our home learning!

Computing - Writing HTML

This half term (Feb/March), in Computing, Class 4 have been looking at HTML (Hypertext Mark-up Language). This is the programming language used to create websites. Take a look at the links below for some jokes the children wrote and designed using HTML.

Their Chairs Have Quit!!!

Our cake sale raised an amazing £120 for the pre-school. Thank you everyone.

Mini Police - weeks 1-3

Class 4 are having a great time in their 'Mini Police' sessions. The PCSOs and Police Officers are brilliant.

In just 3 weeks they have learnt:

  • how to march in formation
  • how to tackle riots
  • how to take fingerprints
  • how to switch on the lights in a police car
  • what anti-social behaviour is

We can't wait for coming weeks!

Science - Light

Class 4 had to prove that light travels in straight lines by shining a torch through 3 pieces of card with small holes in the middle. They worked patiently to line up the holes and get the light shining on the back piece of card. 

We then drew scientific diagrams in our books to illustrate what we did...
