LKS2 – Newsletter – 13.5.22

This week in year 4, the children have been learning how to tell the time! We focused on recapping year 3 time where we learnt telling the time to 5 minute intervals and then one minute intervals on an analogue clock. Next week, we will be learning the difference between am and pm, 12h and 24h and more about a digital clock. 

In Miss Evans’ maths group, the children have been learning how to find equivalent fractions. Some children used pieces of paper to create their own fraction wall. They divided the same sized sheet into halves, quarters and eighths and used this to explore equivalent fractions. 


In English, we have all written a recount on the first Viking invasion of Lindisfarne using the build up over the past 4 weeks to help us. On Monday, we made a ‘silent movie’ to act out the raid to help structure our paragraphs.


This week in science, LKS2 investigated complete and incomplete circuits. First, we got into a circle and all held hands. We acted out a current of electricity passing around the circle acting out a complete circuit. We added in a bulb, buzzer and a switch. We discussed how the electricity is flowing around from the cell in a full continuous movement. We then separated some of our hands, which broke the continuous flow of electricity and we discussed how this would impact the components.

We then investigated complete and incomplete circuits by either creating them using the components or drawing them on a white board. Our partner then had to answer the following questions:

Can you label or identify the components?

State if the circuit is complete or incomplete?

Explain how to fix it if the circuit is incomplete

All the children used fantastic scientific vocabulary and reasoning throughout the investigation, well done!
