As we draw to the end of the school year, we have been reflecting on all that we have achieved. Please take a look at all of the amazing learning that has taken place in year 4, both in school and at home!
Thank you Year 4 for a fabulous year that we will never forget! You are all amazing!
Lots of Friday afternoon fun in the forest this term. From creating tree faces, making magic wands & potions, to building dens and enjoying toasted marshmallows & hot chocolate around the fire, we thoroughly enjoyed our forest school learning.
In Year 3 we have been very busy looking at forces. We wanted to test whether different materials affected how far cars would travel.
We used 7 different materials; tinfoil, bubble wrap, wood, foam, corrugated card, sand paper and felt. We talked about how to ensure it was a fair test we would use the same height of ramp, the same car and the same person doing each job. Before we carried out the investigation we made a prediction about which material we thought the car would travel furthest on.
We had 6 groups and each group tested the ramp once. We combined these results to find out the overall result.
We had great fun and used lots of scientific language.
last week we celebrated anti-bullying week with a theme of ‘change starts with us’ we though about how we could make our school community a happier place for everyone.
It was lovely to see the children focusing on being kind, paying each other compliments, offering support, praising effort and SMILING! The children have made a pledge to make a small change to their behaviour in school that could make a huge difference to someones day.
The children also wore odd socks to celebrate diversity and to highlight that we are all unique and special.
In Science club this week to link with ‘Switch off fortnight’ the children were given a challenge. The challenge was to make a circuit and then create a switch using household materials. The children used tinfoil, paper clips, split pins and card to do this. They all did a fantastic job and had fun too!
