Year 4 enjoyed recreating the digestive system using weetabix and a pair of tights as part of our science lesson. We had lots of fun and enjoyed getting messy.
Exciting Electricity – Cool Circuits!
This week we have been learning about what makes a circuit complete.
We first predicted from a diagram whether the circuit would be successful and work. The children even gave fantastic explanations as to why they thought what they did.
After, we tested out the circuits using crocodile clips, batteries and buzzers. Oh how the class was buzzing with excitement and noise!
Our predictions were fantastic and we all enjoyed it tremendously!
Tik Tok is a social media app where users share videos. This app is for users of 13 years or over but many of our children do have the app. Please visit the link to find tips and advice on how to keep your child safe on the app:

Writing Competition Winners
Last half term, our head and deputy heads set up a new writing competition for Years 3 to 5. The theme for our first writing competition was creative writing and children were given a visual prompt to work with. Channa (Y3), Calum (Y4) and Jessica (Y5) were the first lucky winners and each received 15 Dojo points! Years 3 to 5 look forward to next half term’s writing theme.
In Year 4, we have been finding out about the digestive system in Science.
Not only have we learnt about it, we also investigated it! Things got a little bit messy. Specifically we investigated the end of the system when the food we eat was in the large intestine. We used a zip lock bag (stomach), food and tights (large intestine). We showed in a practical way how food lost moisture in the large intestine and what the end result of this was.
Not only did we have fun but we also learnt lots, despite the mess and smell!
Thank you to everyone who sent a flag to capture all your feelings about school. They are absolutely brilliant!!
The flags have now been put together (as you can see below) and we have also made them the banner for our Facebook page.
When we get back to school, we will print them out and display them around school. Thank you again, we LOVED seeing them!
