Year 4RR

Welcome to 4RR!

Croeso i blwyddyn 4RR

In March we had a very exciting experience!
We were reading some more of the Ironman when Mrs Mather interrupted us and said that an unusual object had been discovered in the school field! Year 4 were first on the case and went out to investigate what it may be! Some of us thought it may be the Ironman’s ear or a piece of the space bat angel! We were very careful and have sent it off for DNA testing!
We completed police witness statements, interviewed an eye witness and wrote up newspaper articles.


In Science we have been learning all about recycling such as where our rubbish goes, why we recycle and we carried out an investigation on how much we recycle at home and made posters persuading people to recycle.


We also took part in lots of Easter activities in the last week of term! Take a look at our pictures below!


February was a very busy month!
We made Valentine’s day cards, enjoyed a lovely half term break, wrote our own Iron man story beginnings and practiced lots of Welsh poems and songs for our Eisteddfod!
Have a look at our Eisteddfod pictures below!
In January we started our new book ‘The Iron man’ by Ted Hughes.
We spent lots of time describing him using adjectives and similes and story boarding the first chapter. We were set a task to make our own Iron man for the Eisteddfod! Have a look at our photo’s to see some!


In science we started our new topic on electricity. We had lots of fun experimenting with circuits and trying to make a light bulb light, as well as finding out all about where electricity comes from and presenting our findings to the class.

We have now finished our English book 'The Thief, the Fool and the Big Fat King' by Terry Deary. We really enjoyed planning and writing our own Tudor story beginning and thinking of a great Tudor problem!

Big News! 4RR are now whitebelts in Kung Fu Punctuation! We are looking forward to starting our yellow belts soon!

At the beginning of December we had to say goodbye to Mrs Roxburgh who left to start her maternity leave! Baby Rosie Roxburgh was born on the 13th of December! Congratulations!


We had a great literacy week. We finished the week by dressing up as our favourite book characters for 'Children in Need'!
