Four of our class members lead our class worship. This was based on our Christian value - Trust. They helped us to reflect on what trust is, who we might trust and they even demonstrated a trust fall.

Competition Winners with SPOT the robotic dog...
Before Christmas, Year 4 entered a competition to name the Sellafield new SPOT the robotic dog before it went on it’s first mission. Year 4 came up with the name NERD (Nuclear Environment Robotic Detector) and it was chosen as the winner!
NERD is already hard at work, so the team from Sellafield brought in another SPOT this afternoon. They told us all about what NERD is doing and how robots are being used. Year 4 were also shown how to control SPOT and the things it can do!
Thank you to both Sellafield Ltd and Primary Business Partnership for allowing us this fantastic opportunity!

RE - Pilgrimage Visit (October 2022)
As an introduction to our new topic in RE (What is it like for Christians to follow God?), we were set to embark on a pilgrimage walk from the Quaker Meeting House, Pardshaw through to Fell Church, Mosser. However, because of the poor weather conditions we remained at the Quaker Meeting House for the full day. We all learnt a lot about the Quaker strand of Christianity as well as our local history. We managed to get outside for a little while, and so we walked up a crag to where the Quaker people would have met hundreds of years ago.
We have had great fun during our DT topic - Adapting a recipe. We have practiced, created, adapted, budgeted and even branded our biscuits. However, the most important part is definitely the testing!

Science - The Digestive System Model (October 2022)
As part of our Animals, including humans topic in Science, we have been gathering information about our digestive system. We got our hand dirty by creating a model of our digestive system, using everyday equipment to represent the different parts. We even used old tights to represent our intestines! We all had a lot of fun 😁

Computing - Building Weather Stations - September 2022
Our focus in Computing this half term is Data Handling: Investigating Weather. In this lesson, we created our own Weather Stations to gather and record sensor data. We discussed how they would work and the units of measurements we would use.
Harvest Worship - September 2022
Design Technology - Biscuit Testing - September 2022
We had a very yummy first lesson in our DT topic of Adapting a Recipe. We thought about the different packaging and who this is the target audience. The best part was eating the biscuits and thinking about the smell, taste and texture.

Maths Place Value - September 2022
We have started our Maths in Year 4 with Place Value. We have been using concrete manipulatives like Base 10 and Place Value Counters to help us understand the value of different digits in numbers up to 10,000. We have also been having lots of fun playing different place value games.
We had an amazing time at Ennerdale and were lucky enough to have gorgeous weather. We walked the whole 7.5 miles around Ennerdale Water (including hiking up Angler’s Crag!) accompanied by members of the Mountain Rescue and got to see some spectacular views. We applied our learning about river features in Geography to the real world by photographing and sketching features of the River Liza and got to have a go at canoeing with Whitehaven Harbour Youth Project. We had so much fun and everyone was so well behaved and gave every activity a good go. You should be very proud of yourselves Year 4!
