Helvellyn - Year 4

We had a fabulous time on our class trip to the library. Lots of us were able to join the library and borrow some books for the first time. We then went to watch the original version of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory but some of us just couldn't put down the books that we had just borrowed!

We carried out an experiment to see how long it takes chocolate to melt at different temperatures.  Which variables did we keep the same and which variable did we need to change?

Today we have been investigating which drink is fizzier?  Can you remember which gas is in our fizzy drinks?  Does gas have a weight?  were the fizzy drinks heavier or lighter than the flat ones?

It has been an absolutely fabulous start to the new school year. Everyone is getting more familiar with the routines in year 4 and we are all getting much better at organising ourselves!  Our spelling and tables tests will be every Friday morning and new spellings will be sent out in our spelling books that day.  If for any reason you miss those spellings please make sure that you ask me or a friend what they are before the following Friday. 

thank you,

Mrs A  

Welcome to year four!

I do hope that everyone has had a lovely restful holiday and are now ready for a fantastic year. Our topic this term is chocolate sensation, we will be looking at the history of chocolate and linking this with a study of Mayan civilisation. Our class text this term will be Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and we will also be studying the life and works of Roald Dahl.

PE days for this term are: Tuesday for football outside and Wednesday inside for gymnastics. Please make sure that you have a full school kit in school for each PE session.

We have had some changes to our homework policy, please refer to the other letter home tonight for the arrangements for homework for this term.

I am very much looking forward to this year and getting to know you all much better. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to get in touch. Either call the office to make an appointment or send me an email.

Mrs Atkinson, Mrs Norris and Miss Mooney.
