The Digestive System

Today, Year 4 had a rather disgusting science lesson-we took part in a demonstration to learn how our digestive system works, and how food is processed by the body. We all had a lot of fun and learned lots in the process.

Art Lesson

As part of our topic work, we went to North Chadderton School for an art lesson and we made a clay tile.  Some of us made a mask tile and some us made a feather tile.  We all included Aztec patterns.  We can’t wait to go back again next week to finish them.

Division

Today we were working on division. We worked with a partner and used place value counters and a grid to work out a range of divisions. We all worked well together and are looking forward to learning more.

Millie Dance

We had a great dance lesson yesterday with Millie.  We worked in small groups to choreograph our own routines and we then performed them for the rest of the class.

 

Maya map work

We had a busy afternoon discovering the Ancient Maya countries and capital cities on a map.  We are looking forward to our next lesson which is going to be about the Maya Calendar.

 

School Council

Today we elected our School Council Representatives. We heard some fantastic speeches and it was a very close contest. We are pleased to announce that Phoebe and Finlay have been elected.

recorder

Today we started to learn how to play the recorder; we learnt the note ‘b’ and played two tunes, we all had a great time.

Glitter germs!

Year 1 have been scientists today and have been observing how quickly germs can spread. Of course we didn’t use real germs today but glitter. It was everywhere!  We had to wash our hands properly with soap and water to make sure that all the glitter was gone.

As part of our topic work this afternoon, we all worked as Code Crackers.  Mrs Pollitt sent us a coded message and we had to work out what the message was and then we made coded messages of our own.  We all had a great time!
