Year 4 – Meeting Exciting Creatures

Year 4 had a special visit from ‘Meet a Creature’, who introduced us to our new topic all about the Amazon Rainforest. We looked at some amazing creatures that live in the Rainforest and had a go at some live sketching, which turned out brilliantly. We then got to interact with the creatures. This included, holding a Royal Python, Tarantula, Gecko, Corn Snake, Chameleon, Frog and many more. After lunch, we watched how the different creatures moved to get around and worked together as a team to try and recreate their movements. (not easy). After that we drew giant food chains from the Amazon. Finally, we got to choose our favourite creature of the day, and had our photograph taken. What an amazing opportunity. We loved the day and we learned so much about the Amazon Rainforest’s inhabitants!

Really well done to both boys.

The Tower of London

As part of our science project, Gangsta Granny, the children designed, built and painted the Tower of London, to protect the crown jewels. They were taught how to make complete circuits to build burglar alarms, pressure pads and security systems. The children also learned about conductors and insulators and used tin foil in the circuits to make a break. Listen carefully to their explanations of how to create circuits – superb work. Really well done everyone.

Year 4 – Tower of London

As part of our new Science Project, ‘Gangsta Granny,’  the children in Year 4 have been set a challenge, by the Queen herself, to protect her precious Crown Jewels from thieves. The children invited their families in to school and together they worked really hard to design and build models of the Tower of London. As part of their Science, the children will learn how to build electrical circuits, which will be made into alarms, security systems and pressure pads to keep out any potential pesky jewellery thieves. A fabulous afternoon. Thank you to everyone who could attend and a special well done to Mrs. Walton fir arranging such wonderful yet organised chaos! #WonderfulCommunity
