Come back to see what we get up to in the last few weeks of term!

The

Romans

have arrived!

 

As part of science week, the class have been creating new habitats for insects - 'Bug Hotels'

 

 

 

The class used hacksaws and bench-hooks to cut their bamboo to the correct size. They used some very good techniques to cut correctly.

 

Some of the children used some oil to protect a bird box that we will be placing in a tree soon. It will hopefully attract sparrows or blue tits.

Year 4 Science - Day 15

 

The seedlings are all looking very healthy. The sunflowers are growing well, as are the peas in the tubes. The dwarf beans in the bags have germinated really well.

 

 

D.T.

The seedlings need to be 'potted' on and transplanted to larger pots before going outside.

We did not want to use plastic so the class have made over 100 newspaper pots which can be planted directly into the soil and decompose in a safe and environmentally friendly way.

            

 

      

Year 4 Roman Assembly

 

The class confidently performed in front of the school, singing songs and performing poetry. They looked splendid in their outfits too.

Our new topic in science is all about plants.

We have been planting some seeds - over 500 in fact!

Science - All about Light

The class concluded their learning this term about light by measuring a shadow throughout the day. They collected a variety of data and investigated what affects the length of the shadow. It was a warm and sunny day !
