    Time travel day

    Posted by Mr A Hart
    Year 4 had time travel day on Friday. The class teacher was from the past and used modern technology so that the children could make silhouettes in the style of pictures from the Georgian era. Then the children performed their plays based on the curing of small pox by Edward Jenner. The whole school got together and shared their experiences in assembly at the end of the day. Well done year 4.

    Internet Safety Day

    Posted by Mr A Hart
    The children today have been learning how to keep safe on the internet. We have discussed how to search for things safely online, followed by acting scenarios out and discussing what could have been done different to support a friend. The children are very tech savvy and it is important we share ways to stay safe in this day and age. I'm positive that the children could even share a few tips and tricks for adults at home!

    Jenner Museum visit

    Posted by Mr A Hart
    The children have had the privilege of a visiting the Jenner museum this afternoon. The children were given a lesson in what it was like to be a servant for Jenner. Some did not look quite ready for the challenge about cleaning the chamber pots but learnt lots about what it was like for servants during the Georgian Era. The children were also then given a guided tour around the house and experienced parts of the wonderful building, learning about how to avoid window tax and proofing bread.

    Science fun

    Posted by Mr A Hart
    Year 4 have been talking about what makes a fair test. They were looking at what part of the classroom was the warmest and had the biggest impact on an ice cube. Ensuring that all the things are kept the same except for one variable (the place in the room.) The children have tried really hard to make sure that the test was fair... and proper.

    Jenner productions

    Posted by Mr A Hart
    Year 4 have been creating a drama based on the Jenner discovery of vaccination. Due to studying a lot about the great man, the children were asked to recreate the moment he discovered the vaccination and part of his early life, which influenced him. We have not quite finished yet, but the children are showing potential to a few future Oscar winners in the class.

    Changing States

    Posted by Mr A Hart
    Year 4 have been learning about changing states. That does not mean from happy to sad, but referring to the chemical change from when a solid, turns to a liquid and then into a gas, or vice versa. The children have learnt lots about how things can be categorised and how some things appear similar, but actually are in a different 'state.' Well done Year 4

    Jenner Fact files

    Posted by Mr A Hart
    As part of the Jenner project completed by schools, the children have completed timelines and fact files. It truly amazing that we have had access to such an amazing man, who some have said is responsible for the saviour of millions of lives a year. The children have enjoyed finding out the facts and creating a timeline about his brilliant and successful life.

    Edward Jenner

    Posted by Mr A Hart
    The children were delighted to be surprised this morning by the wonderful people from the Jenner Museum, who came and talked to the children. We even had a special guest appearance from the man himself. He talked the children through the process of when he first tried inoculation to cure the evil that was Smallpox. The children of year 4 will be completing research for about the Great man and learning all about the local hero. We will also think about the Georgian time period, to link with their learning.
