World War I - Causes & Consequences
Science - Digestion (Making Poo!)
The class had lots of fun putting into practice what they had learned about the digestive system. The children loved getting their hands dirty and making their own version of poo! Afterwards they were all able to accurately describe each process and the various functions of different body parts. A lovely way to end the half term!
Health Day - A Mile Before School!
A massive thank you and well done to all the parents and children who participated in our Health Day Mile this morning. The turnout was fantastic and we smashed our target distance of 50 miles! Year 4 have loved doing the mile each day and are getting faster and faster.
Health Day - Hand Hygiene
Year 4 had lots of fun today learning about how infection and bacteria can spread and the importance of washing hands thoroughly. The children used a special UV gel that showed how germs can stay on skin unless washed properly, then the children shook hands to see just how far the infection can spread! We used a special UV light to see the germs. We discovered that fingernails are very popular with germs!
Design & Technology - Roman Mosaics
Year 4 loved researching, sketching, designing and finally making their own Roman mosaic. They worked with Miss Size to try and make them as symmetrical as possible. The finished results were excellent!
