Details for the Autumn Term to follow.
During our Science week, Year 4 focussed on human digestion. We explored the names and functions of the parts of the body involved in digestion but we needed to really understand how it worked . . . so we recreated our digestive systems using equipment found in most people’s houses. It was great, smelly, but great! Ask your child how digestions works and be prepared for all of the fascinating facts and delicious smell descriptions.
The Vikings are coming! We spent the day as Anglo-Saxon families preparing our food, sharpening our weapons and creating our clothes. During the afternoon we practised our warfare ready to defend our land from those vicious Viking invaders. We all had a great time and learned lots about Anglo-Saxon Britain and even used artefacts made by actual Anglo-Saxons all those years ago.
We had a glorious day learning about many animals and their habitats. After lunch we went exploring the farm land and found a wonderful adventure playground where we developed our climbing skills.
On Friday the 25th of May, Year 4 went for a visit to the Think Tank Science Museum in Birmingham. We visited around five different galleries in the museum as well as the Science Garden outside. As part of our visit we were able to see the wonderful animals and fossils in the Amazing Animals gallery and we also had a fantastic Amazing Animals workshop led by Rachel. In this workshop the children were able to touch and stroke various stuffed animals and see other fossils. At the end of the workshop we were able to classify the animals which linked to our learning in Science this term. All of the children agreed that it made for a wonderful day which really reinforced a lot of our learning in Science this year.
