    Sound experiments

    Posted by Mr A Hart
    Children in year 4 were given free reign to devise their own sound experiment to look at a range of things from vibrations to distance. In groups of 4 the children talked through and came up with their own investigation. Results are yet to come in and this will continue...watch this space.

    Forgiveness

    Posted by Mr A Hart
    Inline with the story of Easter, Year 4 on Thursday spent some time thinking about times when they asked for forgiveness. The children thought hard and expressed some serious considerations. At this time of year, it is important to embrace the importance of the Easter story to Christians, and show that forgiveness is an important thing to remember for everyone not just Christians.

    Ears!

    Posted by Mr A Hart
    Year 4 spent today investigating types of ears and how evolution has allowed some animals to have ears which move and shaped a particular way. The children talked about this and shared ideas in groups. They then experimented with card to see what would be the best shape to hear different sounds.

    Preserving the Polar regions

    Posted by Mr A Hart
    Year 4 spent the afternoon looking at the impact the human race is having on the polar ice caps. We watch a clip looking at the melting ice caps and then discussed ways in which we can help stop global warming. After talking about the things we do, which cause the global warming, we then talked about the little things we can do to make a difference. Many have discussed cutting down time on gaming devices. I would be very interested in seeing if this come to fruition.

    Arctic and Antarctica preservation

    Posted by Mr A Hart
    Year 4 had some fun exploring the new sensory area. The children first went on a hunt to find some facts about the Arctic and Antarctica. We then spent some time learning about the great explorer Edward Shackleton. We learnt about his journey to the Antarctica and the amazing resilience shown by the amazing leader. The children then painted some brilliant maps of the Antarctica, which showed his journey and his heroic escape. The children were then given the opportunity to create some art using the computers. A great introduction to the topic

    21 minutes of activity

    Posted by Mr A Hart
    Year 4, along with the whole school, were extremely lucky that Mrs Lanceley organised 21 sports activities to completed in 21 minutes for down syndrome awareness day. The children took part in all the activities and tried their best. Even Mr Hart tried his best. This experience did not leave him looking at his best. Luckily the rest of year 4 showed some great skill and sportsmanship throughout.

    Poles Apart

    Posted by Mr A Hart
    The children of year 4 were very excited to see a corner of the classroom transformed into a polar base camp. The children spent some time exploring the camp and then searched for some facts about the Poles of the Earth. We spent some time talking about the amazing journey of Ernest Shackleton. The children drew maps of Antarctica and then plotted Shackleton's journey on the maps. We then spent some time on the computers, creating some art based on polar exploration. We are looking forward to exploring further.

    Forgiveness

    Posted by Mr A Hart
    We spent today thinking about forgiveness. With Easter coming up and looking at the Christian festival and the meaning behind it, we decided to think about, "What is forgiveness and what things are unforgivable?" As you can imagine, this provided some weird and wonderful answers and sparked an interesting debate in the class.
