Skylarks - Year 4

Welcome to Skylarks with Mr Dines and Mrs Whyte

This is where you will be able to find out lots of information about Skylarks and see the exciting learning we have been doing in class. Below are the Knowledge Organisers for the Autumn term, which I encourage you to read and display at home, so your child can read the key topic vocabulary needed for our Roman topic and our science on Disgusting Digestion

What a racket!!!

In Skylarks we have been investigating sound and how it is made. We were able to use lots of things to help us hear and see how sound passes through the air using vibrations.

Are we Scotland or England?

The children have worked exceptionally hard on making Hadrian's wall. They used many different techniques to create their master pieces and then used painting techniques to add detail. We then stood on either side of the wall, having put them all together, and stood in Scotland and England as if we were really there.

Nous avons appris nos nombres de un à trente

It's harvest time in our school! The children created a montage of harvest and we discussed what it means to us. Check out the squash on the front row grown in our school garden!!

Doughnut writing - As a special treat for Mr Dines' birthday we wrote a descriptive piece of writing about a doughnut, which was in front of us for an hour before we could eat it! They were sooo yummy!!

French Months Of The Year Song (Remix) - Les Mois de l'Année -

This song will stick in your head all day long! We have been using it to learn the months of the year in French

When is your birthday?

We have learnt when Hermione, Superman and Steve from Minecraft have their birthdays. Can you work them out at home too?

What an amazing day we had being Rocking Romans! From learning roman numerals to designing our own shields, the children had a great day and learnt some interesting and horrible facts along the way

A la boulangerie

Marc tells us all about the things you can buy at a French boulangerie. He shows us how to pronounce them and Madame Day goes through her shopping list. How many of each thing does she need?

How to play Loto with Marc et Milou

We didn't have time to play Loto today. Watch this video and play at home with your friends and family if you like.

Les chiffres et les nombres de 1 a 20 - Alain le lait (French numbers from 1 to 20)

We love the songs of Alain le lait on you tube. This one helps us to learn our numbers 1 - 20

Marc's tells us all about his favourite song

See if you can learn the words to this song at home! Teach your family and friends too!

We have started our French lessons

This is how we start each lesson. Repetition helps the children gain in confidence and have super French accents.
