Welcome back! We have all had a great start to Year 4 and are really proud of how well the children have settled back into school.

Flowering and Non-Flowering Plant Walk 

Visit from a dentist

Today we had a visit from Cora's mum who showed us how to clean our teeth properly and the importance of not snacking between meals!

Our class text

We are really enjoying our class reading book about the antics of a naughty toy llama that creates havoc and brings laughter into a little girl's life!

Map work

Year 4 have been looking at old maps of Addingham to see how the village has changed over time. We focused on transport, leisure and housing.

Tooth Decay Experiment

In Science this week we have been looking at the effect different drinks can have on your teeth. We used white duck eggs to represent the enamel on our teeth. Here is a photo of what the eggs looked like after being in the different liquids for a week. Can you tell from looking at them which drinks are better to drink than others?

In English we have been enjoying our new book ‘Alice in wonderland.’ We have written some descriptive setting using expanded noun phrases and similes and some wonderful adjectives too.


In geography we have been learning about lines of latitude and longitude and we have been looking at maps of Addingham to calculate scale.

We have had a wonderful but messy art lesson where we have painted a still life picture of fruit using charcoal.

In science we have started to learn about ‘The Human body.’ This week we have learnt about our different teeth and planned an experiment to find out which drinks are good or not so good for your teeth.

Look out for our photos coming next week!
