Welcome to Elvis Class

Welcome to Elvis Class. 

Our class teacher is Mrs Buckley who was new to the school in 2020. Mrs Buckley loves teaching Year 4 and has done so many times before. The things she likes the most are seeing how much we learn in such a short space of time. We will have lots of fun along the way too.

Activities that we will do in Elvis Class can sometimes be unusual! Mrs Buckley likes to do her own quizzes and test us out. Sometimes, we will stretch out and get comfy then close our eyes and drift away to lovely places – during our Mindfulness practice. Most of all, Mrs Buckley loves reading pictures book so she cannot wait to get started with some of the amazing and beautiful books we have in school.

In Elvis Class, we also have Mrs Bray. She is so creative and helpful, and works hard to make our classroom look welcoming and bright. Mrs Bray is also our Lunchtime Supervisor and makes sure that we get our food on time, as well as helping us to have fun! Mrs Bray and Mrs Buckley make a great team too.

The Water Cycle

admin on: Elvis Class Blog

Year 4 have finished off their Science topic on States of Matter by learning about the Water Cycle. We have used scientific vocabulary: Evaporation, Condensation, Precipitation and Accumulation. Today we had a go at making our own water cycle using a sandwich bag and water with blue colouring. We are hoping for direct sunlight on our classroom window so that the heat from the sun will allow us to see the water cycle in action!
Children have also been finding out more about the invaluable work that Water Aid do in countries where water is not so freely available. To finish off today we enjoyed some of Our Planet: Fresh Water.

States of Matter

admin on: Elvis Class Blog

Over the last few weeks, Class Elvis have been learning about different states of matter: Solids, Liquids, Gases and how the particles within behave differently.

We know that a solid is 3D and that the particles are packed tightly together. Liquids can flow and can take the shape of their container. Gas particles behave differently still and here we have some photos of the drama we created to model the different states.
We have also learnt about the melting points of different materials and how solids can change to become liquids through the melting process. We investigated the melting point of chocolate by using 3 different temperatures of water which helped make it a fair test. We promise we didn't eat the chocolate (until Mrs Buckley gave us our own piece!)

Carry My Story

admin on: Elvis Class Blog

This year, Class Elvis have been taking part in the Carry My Story project. This is a special project where we think deeply about what makes us unique; more about our own identity; respect and tolerance of others and how we all have a story to tell. On Tuesday, we got to meet Suhaila who came to the UK as a refugee from Malaysia. We were all moved by her story and fascinated by the life journey she and her family have made to escape persecution and threats of violence. Suhaila's story is one that we will carry gently with us over the coming weeks.

Maths Challenge

admin on: Elvis Class Blog

In Year 4 we have been busy enjoying and creating decimal numbers with counters to better understand tenths on a place value grid. We know to separate whole numbers from tenths with a decimal point and we can partition ones and tenths.  We love a challenge and have used a set number of counters to create as many numbers as possible in a few minutes.
