Year 4 – Badgers

Our Amazing Work!

In our science, we’ve been continuing to work with electricity. This week, we’ve been putting switches into our circuits – it was a bit fiddly!


In our PE lesson, we are working on mirroring with a partner. We have to work closely together to create a sequence of movements which mirror each other. It’s a bit trickier when you try it on the apparatus!

We have been learning about the rainforest. In art this week, we looked at a painting called “Surprised” which was painted by Henri Rousseau and used this as an inspiration for our own imaginary rainforest pictures. We looked at different plants that grow in the rainforest and tried to incorporate some of them in our pictures. Haven’t we made a good start?

We have just started to find out about electricity. We’ve been finding out how we get electricity and what appliances use electricity. Today, we had to light up bulbs by ourselves! What a challenge! It took some of us quite a while to figure this out but we all got there in the end!

Year 4 have enjoyed coming to school dressed as their favourite book character for World Book Day – can you guess who we are?

We’ve been reading a book called, “Journey” as part of our literacy work. As we approached the end of the book, we were challenged to create a spread for the book, showing a possible ending. Look at Jessica’s wonderful work!

As part of our Journeys to the Americas topic, we were looking at Mardi Gras and carnival celebrations in Brazil. Julianna and Lily have made masks that they would wear to the carnival! Did you know that in some Mardi Gras celebrations, it is illegal NOT to wear a mask on a float?

Here’s a piece of writing from Anya – she’s done a really good job of explaining how someone might feel when they have to flee their country.

These pictures show some of the lovely art work Freya has done at home.

Some great writing by Rory this week!

What a great dream catcher!
