Class 4 – Mr Evans

 

A warm welcome to year 4. 

A new school year and a new class name; The Billionaires is now our official name.  Why ? Because there’s going to billions of fun things going on, billions of new and exciting facts to learn about and billions of happy memories waiting to be created in Y4.  I’m looking forward to it……So let’s get going !

In our blog with a whole host of information of what we have been up to, in the documents folder at the top of the blog there are newsletters telling you what’s going on and class letters in case you lose anything.

Hope it all helps to keep in touch.

Y4 Science week

Last week, as part of science week, Y4 did an investigation into parachutes. In fact, this was part of a wider whole school investigation inspired by the rover landing on Mars nearly 15 years ago. Each class looked at a different element of journey made by the rover as it landed safely on the red planet. We, in Y4, decided to look at the effect of weight on the flight of the parachute. This involved constructing 2 or 3 identical parachutes but varying the weight at the bottom of each one.

From this we could drop them from the same height and see which one hit the floor first.

Exiting stuff !

Keep parachuting Billionaires !

Building with Lego or looking for connections between the times tables ? 

This week we have been looking for links between the different times tables.  We started by using  blocks to create different coloured chains to represent each of the times tables; 3,6 and 9.  

From this, it’s much easier to see how the times tables relate to each other, and makes them easier to learn and remember. 

Keep it up Billionaires ! Great work !

Billionaires visit the Old Hall, Gainsborough.

As part of our topic on “The Tudors”, we went to the Old Hall in Gainsborough.

We took part in many activities during the day and even re-enacted a feast that Henry VIII attended himself, accompanied by one of his ( many) wives, Catherine Howard. 

We all had a super, but exhausting day and saw so much that we could never even dream of learning about in the classroom.

Well done Billionaires !

BILLIONAIRES VISIT A HOUSING PROJECT

Last week, the Billionaires were lucky enough to visit a new-build housing project in Piley.

We learned about the clever marketing techniques used to help sell houses, looked around a finished product and one part-way through construction.

We also talked at length about how expensive they are !

All in all if was a great experience and as always, the Billionaires did us proud.
