Plastic bottle request

We have an exciting day planned on the first day back and need some plastic bottles (larger 1.5/2L) to make terrariums. Any plastic bottles with their lids will be gratefully received on the 19th April!

Easter Homework

Happy Easter everyone.

We just wanted to confirm that we have asked the children to read on Bug Club and use TTRockstars to practise their timestables over the Easter period.

We hope you have an enjoyable break.

Bug Club

We would like to introduce you to Bug Club.  This is an online reading scheme that gives children an opportunity to read books personalised to their reading ability.   The Bug Club pupil world is where your children log in to read books allocated to them, whether at home or in class. It is also where they can access the rewards they earn when they complete all the activities in a book.  Please see the email from Integris to access the log in information.

Science – the digestive system

We had such fun with our learning today. Some enjoyed it more than others as we were learning about the digestive system in a very practical way. We created an alternative digestive system to show what is happening inside and yes, effectively we made poo!

The crushed food was then passed through the oesophagus (toilet tube) in to the bag that represents the stomach.
We added vinegar and food colouring to represent the enzymes and stomach acids then squeezed the bag like the muscles would do in the stomach.
The contents of the stomach were passed through the small intestine in to the large intestine (sock). All the goodness is taken out of the food in the small intestine.
We squeezed all the water out in the large intestines just like in our insides.
We squeezed the remaining substance out – making poo.

Year 4 PE

Just a reminder that we do PE on Tuesdays and Wednesdays so the children can come to school wearing PE kits on those days.

World Book Day

Sorry for the short notice:

World Book Day!

4th March 2021

Sadly, we cannot all be together to celebrate our favourite authors, stories and characters in our usual way this year. So, at a time when we cannot be together in school, we wanted to come together in a virtual way to share our collective love of reading.

In the spirit of this year’s theme ‘you can ready anytime, anywhere’ we are setting you a reading challenge. We would like you to take pictures of yourself reading in different and unusual places so that we can collate and share these pictures with everyone on World Book Day. You could try to get everyone at home involved in the challenge too!

Some ideas of unusual places you could use:

  • Reading outside
  • Reading at breakfast
  • Reading under a table
  • Reading while dressed as your favourite character
  • Reading upside down
  • Reading with a cuddly toy
  • Reading on zoom!

We are certain you will be able to think of many other creative and unusual places you can read and of course you could send more than one photo to be shared. Who knows, maybe some of your teachers will have found some unusual places to read too! We really can’t wait to see all the different and imaginative places that you find to enjoy your favourite books and we hope you enjoy this challenge too. Keep an eye out for any other exciting things being shared with you on your Google Classroom.

While you are celebrating at home you might still wish to dress up as one of your favourite characters or, you could make something to represent your favourite book. You could create a book in a jar, make a poster, decorate a story stone, write a book review or retell the story in a creative way. Your imagination is your only limitation!

Please could you make sure your photos are shared with your class teacher using your class email address by Monday 1st Monday.
