Welcome to Year Four
10/06/19 – 15/06/19
For year four’s DT week they have been looking at ‘Edible Garden’.
They have looked at a range of ingredients that can be found in the garden, with this they have created bruschetta.
Anglo-Saxon – Topic
We have begun our new topic of Anglo-Saxons!
We first searched the school grounds to see what Anglo-Saxon artifacts we could find!
Then we returned to the classroom to create a timeline of the Anglo-Saxons.
Sharing Our Story
Year four have written and illustrated their own books based on ‘Tornado Slim and the magic cowboy hat’. They then read them to Year two.
We celebrate science day each year with lots of fun experiments in class and also a wonderful science project competition.
World Book Day
Today we all celebrated World Book Day by dressing as our favour characters.
In the afternoon we invited in all the parents to join in with our guided reading session.
Mr B – Electricity Workshop
Continuing with their science topic of electricity, year four worked with Mr B (one of our favourite visitors) we looked at a range of
experiments around electricity. We had some fun looking at static electricity and we also
completed missions on our own personal circuits.
Together year four and six visited the Manchester museum of science and industry to look
at electricity (main focus) but they also got to look at a range of different scientific things.
First they watched a show all about revolution Manchester.
Next they got to explore the museum.
Finally they had an electricity workshop. They tried out different inventions
and learnt how circuits work.
