Autumn 1

What a fabulous start to the new academic year. The children have all settled in quickly, adapting well to the work and routines of year 4. They have responded particularly well to learning about the Normans and the Battle of Hastings.


In PE the children have enjoyed developing further their gymnastic skills including balancing, travelling and vaulting.






This week we tested a range of materials to see if they were insulators or conductors.


We discovered that metals are good conductors.



This week we have been looking at the use of switches in a circuit. We even had a go at making our own.



It’s all electric!

We are learning about electricity. So far we have sorted appliances into two groups – mains powered and battery powered.

In addition, we have understood how circuits are constructed using wires, battery and bulb.

This week we were given some pictures of circuits and we predicted whether they would work or not.
