Year 4 Calculation Policy

This year we are learning about Malala Yousafzai as an inspirational person.



    Some facts we have learnt so far:


  • She is from Pakistan but now lives in England
  • She was born 12th July 1997
  • She is the youngest person to receive the Noble Peace Prize
  • Her dream was for all girls to receive an education and this is what she fought for


We love this quote:


This half term our science topic is: 'Sound'




Our key vocabulary is: 

 pitch, vibrate, vibration

pitch: how high or low a sound is

vibrate: to shake backwards and forwards

vibration: can send sounds to the ears



Sounds are made when objects vibrate. The vibration makes the air around the object vibrate and the air vibrations enter your ear. You hear them as sounds.

You cannot always see the vibrations, but if something is making a sound, some part of it is always vibrating.

In RE we are thinking about "Why do Christians call the day Jesus died, Good Friday?"


Good Friday is the Friday of Holy Week, the Friday before Easter Day. It is thought that the name Good Friday is an altered form of God’s Friday. But many people say that ‘Good’ Friday is an appropriate name: on this special day, God showed his goodness to humankind. It is the day God made it possible for people to be forgiven and know him in a new and special way.

Reeling from the death of their father and the disappearance of their sister Sukie, Olive and her brother are evacuated to the coast of Devon. After discovering a strangely coded message that she’s certain has something to do with Sukie’s disappearance, Olive embarks on a dangerous adventure as she’s determined to get to the bottom of the mystery...
