Before we studied potions, I didn't know about the changes between solids, liquids and gases. I also know about viscosity and that is about the thickness of a liquid.

Innovation Friday: Urban Pioneers

IMG_1626

Friday 1st October: 

Year 4 were very excited to welcome parents back into the classrooms to share Innovation Friday with their children. The children looked back on their learning journey to light and shadows and used their knowledge to show how shadows are formed from different light sources. We created some fantastic artwork to represent this too. 

What a productive and fun-filled morning we had! Thank you to all the adults who joined us.

I now know how the food travels through the digestive system. I know what the different teeth are and what their different and important jobs are. There is acid in your stomach that breaks down the food as well as your teeth.
Annabel

Did you know that your canines rip and tear your food? Molars, pre-molars and wisdom teeth crush and grind the food.

Memorable experience: Ancient Egyptians day with ‘History on a Page’

Wednesday 5th January: 

Year 4 were transported back to 3100BC by ‘History on a Page’ and took on their temporary roles excitedly by dressing up in character. That was just the staff… 😉

The day provided a wealth of experiences that would have been similar for ancient Egyptians including medicine making, mummification and pottery production.
