Class Trip 26/06/17

On Monday, Year 4 are visiting Normanby Hall for a ‘Where the Wild Things Are?’ workshop. We will be spending the majority of the day outside in the forest. 

Now the weather over the weekend and on Monday (at the minute) is forecast rain, and quite a lot of it. With this in mind, can all children arrive to school in their school uniforms and school shoes with an extra bag containing a waterproof jacket, a long sleeved top, spare pair of socks, a pair of trousers and wellies or sturdy boots, which they can get changed into for their workshop. This ensures they will be kept protected, safe and dry. 

Thank you


Functions of the human digestive system

We have found some very interesting and surprising facts about our digestive system today. 

We used meter sticks to estimate the length of the large intestine and the small intestine. Can you guess which measurement is for which organ? 

Surprisingly, the small intestines approximately measures a lengthy 7 meters, compared to the large intestines which only measure approximately 1.5 meters! 


True or False

We have discovered there are many parts to drawing a perfect graph, such as drawing perpendicular lines accurately and being able to identify and draw time on a number line. We have spent today proving questions like these true or false. 

Here is our reasoning…


Exploding Homework 

Wow! We  have had some fantastic homework creations so far throughout the Misty Mountain topic and Willow has added to the collection. Using mod roc, paints, baker by soda, food colouring and vinegar, willow has made a model of a volcano that actually erupts! 


Inclusive Sports

Year 4 has had a fabulous morning being inspired by sports which have been played in the Paralympics. Not only have they learnt and practised the skills to play New Age Curling and Boccia, but they’ve all had to try these sports sat down in chairs! It proved a struggle to begin with but by the end their aiming and throwing skills really had improved!  


Mini water cycle

The past 2 weeks we’ve been investigating states of matter. This afternoon, we have made a mini version of a water cycle. Hopefully this should show water changing its state throughout the 4 stages of the water cycle process. 

Year 4, who can name and explain the 4 stages of the water cycle? 



I think the children’s faces in these photos tell you how fantastic today has been. 

Year 4 really did experience a mountainous adventure this morning. Not only with the 27 feet climbing wall, which so many children managed to climb to the top of! They were all able to pitch a tent without any instructions (or arguements) and learn how to tie a variety of knots. 

A great beginning to Year 4’s Misty Mountain Sierra learning journey.
