Year 4 States of Matter

We took advantage of the snowy conditions to learn more about states of matter.

Did you know that water can be a solid, liquid or a gas?

When it’s a solid it’s called ice, when it’s a liquid it’s called water, and when it’s a gas it’s called water vapour.

We used the process of melting to turn the solid ice into liquid water, we also observed the results of pouring salt on snow and ice and discovered this melted the solid creating a liquid!

Year 4 Maths – spaghetti and meatballs for all!

Today we read a story called Spaghetti and meatballs for all. It was a story about a husband and wife who wanted to host a family reunion. They knew they were going gong to have 32 guests, so Mrs Comfort (the wife) drew up a fantastic seating plan using 8 tables and 32 chairs…

However, once the guests started to arrive and move the tables around, things became slightly more complicated!

We enjoyed working in mixed groups today to use our knowledge of area and perimeter to investigate different ways Mr and Mrs Comfort could have arranged the tables and chairs to seat all of their guests.



Year 4 Maths through stories

This week we read a book called ‘Each orange had 8 slices.’ We read and solved the maths problems in the book working with our maths partners, and enjoyed it so much that we decided to make our own version of the story with our own maths problems and settings!

Here is a sneak peek of the behind the scenes book creation. Look out for the finished book in the corridor by the Year 4 classroom soon!


Year 4 – The digestive system

As part of our science topic on animals and humans we have learned about the digestive system. This week we used our bodies to make models of the teeth, tongue, oesophagus, stomach, small intestine and large intestine…


Can you guess which picture is which?


Year 4 Community Liturgy

The year 4’s have enjoyed learning about different communities in our RE topic. They

understand that we can belong to lots of different communities. Some boys in the class

planned a wonderful liturgy to celebrate belonging to our school community.
