Greetings Year 4,
Continuing our exploration of rivers and tied to our Guided Reading for the week, today you are going to find out more about flooding.
You've got a powerpoint presentation to read through, including some dicussion points and videos, and an activity to print out and complete. If you don't have a printer, then you can use a paint app to select and move the images.
LO: To be able to explain the causes of flooding.
I can remember to:
- name the four main causes of flooding.
- cut out the photos (scissors or paint app).
- read the captions to put the photo in the right place.
- discuss how floods can be prevented.
As it's such a beautiful snowy day today, I've made a last minute change to our art lesson.
It's a great opportunity to get outside and create something using the medium of snow! This can be a snowman, or you could stretch your creativity a little and create a snow collage or a snow drawing using different natureal materials. Snow can be a great way to get artistic and have lots of fun at the same time!
My two had a great time making snow people this morning and thought of ways that they could make them look as realistic as possible. They worked hard to sculpt and add detail and worked together really nicely!
My daughter then switched media and continued to create stick pictures in the snow!
When you have finished your artwork, you can share a photo of your work here

For this week's singing session, Sheffield Music Hub have set us a challenge!
There are 2 options which are both explained by Caroline in the video below.
Option 1: This requires you to work with others. Create a structure using the template provided (see the link below). Decide which part to bring in first/second/third THEN record your performance using your new structure, split into part.
Option 2: This can be done on your own. Create a structure using the template (see the link below). Decide which part to bring in first/second/third THEN record yourself singing the each part, one after the other (e.g. Bow Wow Wow, then Hot Cross Buns, then body percussion)
The video starts with a fun warm up. Warming up helps us get ready to sing. It stretches our muscles and focuses
our mind! Focus on copying the warm up exactly and only making the sounds on the video!
Time to get your dancing shoes back on with Dazzle Dance Amy this week!! Enjoy!!
Happy Thursday Year 4,
Today we will continue to learn about states of matter in our water cycle.
It's time to get creative by making your own water cycles at home!!
The first water cycle to make is one you're going to watch over time to observe changes... It shouldn't take you too long to make this one! To make the second water cycle you'll need to follow the video but you don't need to follow it exactly. You can make your own changes to make it your own!
Video 1: How to make a water cycle in a bag
Video 2: How to make a 3D water cycle.
Don't forget to submit your work in the google form at the top!
When watching the animation below, listen out for these body parts which we learnt last week!
Here is this week’s musical moment’s video from the Brass team at Sheffield Music Hub. This includes an opportunity to create a graphic score and try out your own homemade brass instrument!
