Reflection on the Crucifixion
As part of Year Fours Lenten Assembly, Year Four accompanied Reception in their quest of feeling what it is like to lose something you love (Jesus) and then the feeling of happiness when it is returned (Jesus' Resurrection). This was rein-acted using Chocobird and her eggs.
Responding to CAFOD Visit
After having the pleasure of Mrs Sivills, Year Four were left with an important task of responding to Pope Francis' letter. All children thrived in writing their response in a postcard form. They each made a reflection on his letter and made a promise of the change they will make starting from today.
A big thank you to Mrs Partridge, who taught us latitude and longitude in such a creative way. Take a look at our Mr longitude and Mrs Latitudes.
To begin our Science week we were asked to solve Miss Murphy's problem of wanting a new telephone. Take a look at us exploring and investigating the telephone string.
World Book Day
Despite the heavy snowfall, all of Year Four has arrived looking spectacular. They are spending the day entering a book token competition, creating their own 'World Book Day Song' based on their current favourite song and finally re-designing their own book cover and blurb for their favourite book!
Snow has hit St Anne's hard! However, Year Four has thrived on this event by creating fantastic rhyming poems about the 'Beast from the East!'

Tuesday 28th November 2017
Today we have been learning about how to prepare for God's gift of love (Jesus). To consolidate our learning, we have made our own 'Countdown to God's Gift Calendar'.
Friday 17th November - Class Science Investigation
Today we completed our testing session for our investigation into toothpastes.
We were using a comparative test, whereby we were comparing our own toothpaste (inventions) to an everyday leading brand. We agreed that it would be the number of brushes taken to clean a dirty tile (replica of our teeth) to explain how effective the toothpaste was.
Take a sneak peak at what our investigation looked like.
To complete our learning about Roman Roads. We decided to create our own diagram of one using Marshmallows, grapes, digestive biscuits and dark chocolate. Here you can see us working hard to create our masterpieces along with our final result.
To end our Instructions unit, we decided to make Halloween Slime. As you can see we had a fun time making it. But most importantly, we produced some fantastic writing!
Let’s Get Cooking
Let’s get cooking has begun! This is where we develop our skills in the kitchen with Mrs Brennan. Take a look at our delicious creations.
Roald Dahl Day – 13th September 2017

Roman Timeline Investigation – 25th September 2017
Take a sneak peek at our introduction to timelines. Miss Murphy gave us a problem to create a timeline with rulers, glue sticks and event cards. We even learnt a song to help us remember the difference between B.C and A.D and how to order them correctly. If you would like to hear it, please ask!
Science – 13th October 2017
This week we having being investigating the different types of teeth. In order to understand the different types (Molars, Incisors and Canine) we shaped and moulded clay to form the structure of each type. From there we then discussed how each one functions and help with our everyday eating habits.
