Welcome to our Year 4 Classes!
Mr. Keenan and Mrs Murray are really proud to be working with our fantastic Year 4 children this year. Keep checking these pages for pictures of the exciting things we are doing in class.
We used our Fraction Walls to help with understanding equivalent fractions in class.
Circuits - use these to create your "Iron Giant"
We used Numicon to show multiples. This helped us to understand not just multiplication and division but also factors.

Using iPads to help with our maths
Some of the apps we have been using recently to help with our mental maths have included Monster House to help with some basic algebra, Math Duel to help our 4-a-day skills to improve and Motion Math to help with fraction. We also use Kodable to help with moving in different directions. Mr. Keenan can't pronounce Kodable which is quite funny!
Spanish Dancing in Year 4
As part of our Spanish Celebration Day, we have been learning how the Spanish dance.
Making LOUD Drumming Sounds in Year 4!
First we drummed loudly which made a banging sound and then we twanged elastic bands, we plucked guitar strings, we flicked rulers and we hummed from our throat. Each time we did this, we made a vibrating sound. We then learned about pitch and volume and how sounds can be loud or quiet. It was very noisy in Year 4!
In Food Technology, we have been designing and making our own pizzas. Unfortunately, nobody gave Mr. Keenan a bite which is a shame because they looked amazing!
We have been learning about Gas Masks. During the war, if you didn't wear one of these, you might not survive a Gas Attack!
The one we used to take these pictures was very uncomfortable and it stank!
We have been using Numicon to learn about place value. We took four digit numbers and partitioned them into thousands, hundreds, tens and ones. We then took the final whole one number and converted it into tenths. Finally we converted these into decimals.
Our visit to the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra
We visited the Royal Philharmonic Hall today. Our children were treated to music ranging from the Beatles to Star Wars to Bach. They were a real credit to the school.
Our Activity Day at Calderstones Park
We had a great time at Calderstones Park today taking part in lots of active activities based around what we have been learning in Maths for our Maths of the Day challenge. Lots of tired children at the end of the day (and some tired teachers as well!).
Working with LFC during PE
Our "Iron Giants" based on the book by Ted Hughes
Problem Solving and Reasoning in Mathematics
Having fun at Archbishop Blanche! Thank you to all the staff and students who worked so hard to make this a fantastic event.
We have been learning about British Values during World War 1 and 2 reading books by Marcia Williams
