We are Elton John class and we are the best class in year 4 - although we might be biased!
We have spent time researching Elton John as we are named after him, and we were delighted to find out he wrote songs from The Lion King! So we put on our own performance for year 2... They loved it!
Here we are!
As it is nearly time for us to go up to Year 5, we thought about everything we learnt in Year 4. Here are some films we made showing exactly that:
Our trip to Leeds Castle
On Wednesday 29th June year 4 went to Leeds Castle as part of history week. Here is what we got up to...
Our Olympic trips
As we will be using the Enchanted Woodland in History Week to find out about Temple Hill's past, Mrs Neaves took us down to explore and find our way around...
Our topic is 'The Olympic Games' so we held our own opening ceremony to kick things off!
Our topic is 'How Humans Work' - we are learning about all the different organs in the body.
Our topic this term is 'Chocolate' and we are enjoying tasting, experimenting with, and designing and making chocolate bars!
Science is answering questions- we have been finding all sorts out about chocolate...
Making our own chocolate!
Our trip to Snozone!
What have year 4 been learning about as part of our 'Active Planet' topic?
For our entry point, we made an action plan about what we would do if we were trapped in school by an earthquake.
Egyptian day! We dressed as Egyptians and showed our parents what we have learnt.
Science- we have been investigating light and shadows.
In literacy we have been making trailers for 'The Prince of Egypt' to show we can summarise the plot and identify the theme and genre.
Check out our year 4 podcast and see what we've been learning: children - podcasts
Our topic for term 2 is 'Temples,Tombs and Treasure' .... We discovered our own tomb filled with treasure as our entry point!
For World Food Day we organised and carried out a sponsored fun run to raise money to buy some goats (a sustainable food source) for a village in the world where food is scarce.
Our 'Temple Hill pep talk' film to inspire and motivate us to achieve our goals!
We set our own goals that we want to achieve and then made a motivational video to inspire us not to give up.
INSPIRE day with Chris Cook...
We made a video to show them what our community is like.
Our questions for Oshwal Academy, Mombasa, Kenya:
Year 4 link up with a school in Kenya
We have been learning about Kenya and have made videos and written emails to tell them about our school and community, and also to find out about theirs. We even managed to Skype them and asked them questions as if we were face to face!
Our topic for term 1 is 'Living together'. We have been finding out about our own community and comparing it to one in Kenya.
Maths day - maths in art!
Our personal learning goal is collaboration - we've been working as a team!
Performing one of Elton John's songs - The Circle of Life
