On Friday, during our assembly, Isobelle played the Last Post to help us remember all those who have fought in wars. She did an excellent job and we were really proud of her.
Well done Isobelle.

This week we have been learning how to make a simple electrical circuit to make either a light bulb, a buzzer or a motor work. Once we achieved that, we added a switch into the circuit so we could turn it on or off. We also learnt that electricity flows and that if we didn’t have a complete circuit it wouldn’t work.

They took part in a number of activities which included, balancing, throwing and catching and concentration. They also had to work as part of a team with other children from different schools.

Egyptian Day

OctoberPosted by Year 4 Wed, October 18, 2017 16:23:05
Today in Year 4 was Egyptian Day. Not only did we all dress up but spent the day making Egyptian artefacts. During the morning we made canonic jars using foil, masking take, tissue paper and a lot of glue.
In the afternoon we made Ankh symbols using spaghetti and yet more glue.
We all had a great time. Finished artefacts will be added later.

Today, we emptied out our pots of natron salt to see what our pieces of apple would look like. We reminded ourselves, using adjectives, what the apple was like before and shared ideas about what it would like now. Some of us were correct and some of us remembered what Tutankhamen looked like when we saw his photo.
When we held the apple it felt rubbery and very soft, the opposite to what we started with.
