Water Cycle

JanuaryPosted by Year 4 Thu, January 18, 2018 12:45:02

This week we have been learning about the WATER CYCLE. We watched an experiment in class and learnt a song to help our learning.

The link to the song is

If you want to do the experiment at home make sure you get adult help as you will need hot water.

In a large clear bowl, place a smaller container. Carefully, pour hot water into the large bowl, avoid getting any water in the smaller container. Cover the large bowl with cling film and place several ice cubes on top. Leave for 10/15 minutes. Finally, remove the ice and cling film. You should notice that some of the water has collected into the smaller container.

Can you explain this?

Beech Class Stories

Today we visited Beech Class who read us their stories they have written based on The Three Little pigs. We were very impressed.
Some of our comments were,
I really like the adjectives the girl used for description.
He read really well.
The handwriting is very good, almost better than mine!

We have invited Beech to come to Sycamore so we can read them our stories once we have written them.
Well done Beech.

Traditional Tales Tent!

Yesterday, the traditional tales tent was in Sycamore class. We had great fun listening to The Three Little Pigs read by Miss Lane, with Miss Buller outside acting as the Big Bad wolf. Later in the afternoon, each house had time to sit in the tent and listen to Mr B read The True Story of the Three Little Pigs. We all had great fun.

Collecting leaves to make classification keys.

As part of our science topic on living things and their habitats, we have been exploring and using classification keys to help group, identify and name a variety of living things.

This afternoon we decided to venture into the school garden to explore what different types of leaves we could find there. We then worked in small groups to make our own classification keys.

To help us learn the story of the Three Little Wolves and the Big Bad Pig, we used puppets to retell it in groups. We had a lot of fun.
