Our great learning
Some more fantastic examples of work Year 4 are producing at home. We are so proud of all your efforts. Keep up the fantastic learning.
We are living through history right now so why not make a time capsule to look back on in years to come? I did this as a child and I still haven’t opened it! If this sounds like something you would want to do then there are some instructions below. I would love to see any when they are finished so please do send some pictures in. - Miss B
With the sun shining it is a perfect time for you to spend some time sitting, relaxing and reading a good book. Below are some recommendations if you are in need of a new book to read.
What a lovely start to the Summer term seeing some of the fantastic work that has been completed already! Well done everyone for continuing to work so hard.
Welcome back Year 4!
Hopefully you all enjoyed the Easter break, even if it was a little different to what we have been used to before.
We hope you are all refreshed and keen to face the new challenges of the Summer term.
Remember your teachers love to see and hear what you are all up to so do get in touch via the year group emails.

It is now time for the weekly Year 4 news, read to you by Hugo Moore.
Do you love reading as much as me? Click here to have a listen to our storytime. We will be updating the stories as much as possible for you to listen to.
This piece of geography work by Tola is brilliant and shows all of the flags of the world. She used an atlas to help her and then translated all of the countries into Polish. This is some brilliant and bright learning.
We have had some brilliant work sent to us and it's only the beginning of the week. We cannot wait to see what else you will send us!
Jodie has been working hard at her learning and has even created a cafe (Ralph's jungle cafe) at home for her sister and her parents. Everyday at 10:30 they have a break and the children have to pay for their snacks and make tea and coffee for their parents. Maybe you could follow in Jodie's footsteps and create your own cafe!
What a fantastic and creative musical instrument by Mia!
Art makes many of us smile and we love receiving all types of creative learning. Have a look at this great piece.
We have heard about some lovely activities and learning that has been going on. From working out how long it would take to cycle to school and back and then cycling the distance in the garden, to communicating with friends to see what they have been up to. We have heard that we may even have a budding journalist in our team. Keep up the hard work!
Good Morning Year 4. It looks like it's going to be another lovely day but certainly a little frosty this morning. We hope you are still enjoying your home learning and beginning to settle into a routine. Remember to have a go at practising some new skills as well, maybe some baking or helping to pair up the socks! Keep up the hard work and remember to reflect on each day with enjoyment and happiness.
We are really enjoying the work we are seeing being produced. It is great that there are examples of all areas of the curriculum and that children are learning lots of new skills as well. From new inventions to baking and bonding with siblings. Keep up all the hard work and we look forward to seeing lots of new talents being explored.
Good morning Year 4, it looks to be a bright and sunny day. We hope your first day of home learning went well. Remember to set out your goals for the day focusing on your learning tasks. Take breaks much like we do in school with an extended lunch break allowing yourself time to relax. Make sure to find yourself 15 minutes in the day to reflect- you can find daily reflections for both yourself and your family to complete at home, under the Christian School Tab on the school website. Don't forget to keep in touch we would love to see what learning you are all up to. Here is an example of a timetable you may like to follow:
This morning, we have all joined in with Joe Wicks. This is done everyday at 9am on Youtube and is a great way to start the day. Have a go at home too because we have had great fun keeping active. Enter text...

4AB are keeping their spirits high and smiles on their faces with some beautiful singing! Miss Brockman is very proud of you all.
4AB - Art
4AB have been looking at ‘The Boy Who Lived with Dragons’ by Andy Shepherd which inspired our dragon eyes artwork. We learnt about shading techniques and how to achieve variations in tone. They are currently on display in the Year 3 and 4 shared area - so come and have a look!
4ab - maths
This half term in 4 AB we have been focusing on fractions. We have been learning how to identify and find equivalent fractions, how to add and subtract fractions with like and unlike denominators and how to convert between mixed numbers and improper fractions. We have all been working really hard and are so proud of how we are doing.
4ab - English
In 4AB's English sessions we have stepped into ‘The Boy Who Lived with Dragons’ by Andy Shepherd which has inspired our own story writing. We have worked really hard to make our work exciting to catch the reader’s interest through a process of drafting, editing and finalising. Please enjoy the selection of fantastic writing below.
Cranleigh Primary School has been chosen as a Champion School for the awards
all about sound
This week 4LS have been learning all about sound, sound waves and how sound travels. They have been experimenting with tuning forks in water and using string telephones to observe how sound travels.
visiting the residents at rowley''s community centre
Year 4 went to visit Rowley’s on the 25th November to sing a few songs. We sang ‘Count On Me’ by Bruno Mars, ‘A Million Dreams’ from The Greatest Showman and ‘Shine Jesus Shine’. The residents absolutely loved it and were very complimentary. The whole of year 4 represented the school brilliantly and should be very proud of their performance.
After learning all about the different types of teeth humans have and need, 4AB created an experiment to test whether different liquids have different effects on our teeth. We used hard boiled eggs and the shell represented the enamel on our teeth. We found out that the more sugar a liquid has, the more damaging the effect is on our teeth – especially if we don’t brush them! We found our results really shocking and pretty gross!
4AB have been studying the digestive system and learning about the different stages and functions. Miss Brockman demonstrated the process using chocolate cake, a spatula, coca cola, tights, amongst many other things!
In our English sessions we have been learning about the discovery of Tutankhamun by Howard Carter and Lord Carnarvon. We have been writing our own newspaper articles documenting the events which unfolded all those years ago. This learning made us interested in Tutankhamun’s sarcophagus and burial mask so we decided to create our own. We worked really hard and some even went to the Art Centre to be put on display!
4AB have been learning about how the ancient Egyptians communicated. We looked at the Rosetta Stone and studied hieroglyphics before trying to create our own messages for each other. We then created our own cartouches with our names on in hieroglyphics. Can you work out who these cartouches belong too?!
We worked really hard to create these bold and eye-catching silhouette paintings. I think you will agree that 4AB are FAB!
We then had a little bit of fun and mummified our friends using toilet roll!
4AB learnt all about the gruesome but interesting process of mummification and the ancient Egyptian belief about life after death. We conducted an experiment to see the effectiveness of the mummification process by mummifying a tomato! We followed the same steps as the ancient Egyptians and will leave our tomatoes covered in salt and bicarbonate of soda for 40 days. We will be checking our tomatoes regularly to see if there are any changes!
