We were searching through lots of books today in spellings. We were looking to see if authors also used contractions and if there were any we hadn’t seen yet. 

What did we find out Year 4?

Quick Stick Hockey 

Tomorrow, Year 4 are going to play Quick Sticks hockey. Please can all Year 4’s bring a water bottle and their outdoor PE Kit. This should include trainers and jogging bottoms. If your child owns a pair of shin pads can these also be brought in too.

Look back tomorrow too see how we got on at the Quick Stick Hockey event. 

Anglo Saxon workshop

What a fantastic introduction to the Anglo Saxons! Year four was introduced to who the Anglo Saxons were, why they came to Britain and what they did here. They were also shown some extremely fragile artefacts and replicas to observe and study. 

Year four, please write in the comments about this workshop. What did you learn? Did anything surprise you? What were the artefacts and described what they looked liked. 

The journey of food

Year 4 have learnt lots about the digestive system since the beginning of term and they are now planning an adventure story about a piece of food taking a journey through their digestive system. The sights, sounds and smells this piece of food might see, yuk! 

To help their imaginations they have all acted out the journey their piece of food will take. The rest of the class had to guess the problem, what panic was caused and how the problem was finally resolved. 

Drama in PSHE

We were understanding how rewards and consequences motivate people’s behaviour today in PSHE. Each group had a different scenario they had to act out followed by a reward and consequence. They each performed in fron of the rest of the group. Everyone was brilliant and each had their own role. Great teamwork and understanding Year 4! 

Digestive discoveries

Eurgh, oh, ewww were only some of the sounds Year 4 made this afternoon when the largest cow’s tongue appeared from a blue bag. We were all surprised at how large, long, spotty and furry it was. Along with a tongue, we very carefully observed a stomach (tripe), kidney, liver and instestines.

What was your favourite or most disgusting organ and why?

Can a cake be healthy?

This morning we were looking at how healthy our favourite dinners actually are. We discovered tomato sauces rather than cream sauces are much more healthier as we are are getting at least one portion of your five a day. 

We then thought about delicious, yummy puddings. Can these ever be healthy we wondered? So we looked at some cake recipes and adapted the recipes. We decided that all the sugar needed to be removed and replaced with a variety of fruits. 

We haven’t yet tasted them but they looked rather erm, interesting.
