    Health and Wellbeing

    Posted by Mr A Hart
    The children of year 4 have spent their Friday afternoons learning about health and wellbeing. They have spent time looking at what leadership is, the benefits of sports, designing their own games and many more with people from superstars. They have also finished their last bit of archery. Having seen the progress the children have made with this work, they have shown great improvement with their accuracy. Not sure if we have any budding William Tell stories to tell but its good to see progress in a more specialised sport.

    Electrical safety

    Posted by Mr A Hart
    Today Year 4 were introduced to our Science topic of electricity. Due to the nature of our current topic, a lot of children were focused on the negative parts of electricity. We also thought about the dangers and discussed ways we need to be safe. Some great posters were made as we look further to explore this great topic.

    Mindfulness Day

    Posted by Mr A Hart
    Today year 4 spent the day focusing on mindfulness and how it can benefit our mental health. We demonstrated ways that you can become aware of your body and think about the things you don't usually think about. The children also took time to create art during the day to calm them. A great day and skills learnt to brace themselves for the challenges, which await them in the future.

    Wicked Weather Watch

    Posted by Mr A Hart
    Year 3 and 4 were given a special treat today. The people from the Wicked Weather Watch charity came to school and delivered a range of lessons on the Arctic and Antarctica linked to our topic. The children were given opportunities to build igloos, create puzzles and make food chains. Both classes also got the opportunity to have a dance to show the challenges facing the Arctic. The children had a great day and we learnt lots. A lovely day.

    St George's Day

    Posted by Mr A Hart
    Year 4 celebrated this special day by learning facts about St George and the famous tail of slaying a Dragon (Mr Hart was not best pleased with this bit...) but the children then discussed whether it was still important to celebrate our patron Saints and what purpose do they fulfill. The children shared some great ideas and came up with some interesting responses. Hopefully that is the end of the Dragon slaying talk...at least till after the Rugby World Cup!

    Sound experiments

    Posted by Mr A Hart
    Children in year 4 were given free reign to devise their own sound experiment to look at a range of things from vibrations to distance. In groups of 4 the children talked through and came up with their own investigation. Results are yet to come in and this will continue...watch this space.
