We are Year 4 and we are taught by Mrs Kingdon and Mrs Levy
On Wednesday 24th April we investigated electric circuits. We had to find out if the circuits were complete or incomplete. Some of us managed to include buzzers and switches in our circuits too!
On the 26th March we spent the day at Compton Verney as Viking Villagers. We made dough for flatbread, we played Kingybat a Viking game which needed skill and concentration. We built our own shelters and lit our own fires. It was a great day!
STEM Week 11th- 15th March
We designed and made balloon powered cars. We adapted our designs so that they traveled a long way. We then measured how far the cars traveled and the winning cars went to the final in hall.
John Blandy came 1st, 2nd and 3rd!
We created our own investigations, some children investigated space and the solar system, and some children made and flew paper aeroplanes and measured the ones that flew the furthest. Some children investigated the chemical reactions with sweets and fizzy drinks. Some children investigated the distance that cars traveled own ramps set at different heights. We even had a group of children who made their own telephone using funnels and tubing- it worked!
On the 7th March we celebrated World Book Day.
Can you guess which characters we dressed up as?
Bright Sparks Science Workshop
Monday 11th February
We made light spinners, we created shadow puppets using a light box, we played with a light reflection game and prisms to refract the beam of light from a torch.
In March, we had a Malawi workshop. Peter and Simon came into school and we learned about the different food and animals that you can find in Malawi. We created presentations about them.
We did a range of activities including sit-ups, step-ups, shuttle runs, skipping and star ups for 2 minutes. We recorded our scores each week and tried to beat them.
Over the weeks, our scores improved along with our fitness and strength.
In Term 2 we performed the Christmas Nativity called "A Midwife Crisis". It was great fun! This photo was taken during our dress reshearsal to the rest of the school and Grandparents.
