    Year 4 Scientist appreciation.

    Posted by Mr A Hart
    Today the children were looking at a dragon fly. But they were given the challenge to draw a part of the dragons fly in as much details as possible. They asked to blow the picture up and appreciate the challenges that face scientist looking at animals. Looking for things that weren't necessarily obvious at first. Children were asked to write down the things that they noticed. Must be said we have some very promising artists/scientists in year 4. Well done!

    Dance

    Posted by Mr A Hart
    Year 4 have been working with Mr O and creating a dance as part of a team. Shakira's Waca Waca song was the inspiration to ensure continuity. Children then created 4 moves in steps of 4. At the end it must be said that the class gave some excellent performances to each other and showed great respect towards each other when teams were performing. Well done guys!

    Children were asked to use an electronic maps to plot on a map, various parts of the Western Front from the First World War. Children then had to join up the points and understand how big the Western Front was for the soldiers of First World War. A challenging task, which the children completed confidently, and with Mr Bryant as a Geography specialist, help was on hand to support if needed.

    Environment Mischief

    Posted by Mr A Hart
    Mr Hart played a bit of a nasty trick on the year 4 pupils on Tuesday. He told the children that the governors of the school had been given a great deal on some play equipment but it had replace the pond in the school. The children were excited and outraged in equal measure due to the impact on the environment. The children discussed the pros and cons and eventually had a vote on what to do. Keep the pond or get the new play equipment. The children voted ... then Mr Hart came clean about it and explained the whole lesson was a way of discussing the impacts and changes of environments. The children were not happy with his deceit.
