Regional Science Centre Visit

This morning we all went to the Regional Science Centre in Oldham as part of our Science topic on digestion.  We did an experiment about the digestive system.  We used a banana and two digestive biscuits and we mushed them together with saliva (really it was water).  Next we put it into a bag and then we added some acid (really it was orange juice).  Then we churned it in our hands and then we cut a corner of the bag and squeezed it into some tights (small intestine).  After that we cut the knot on the tights and then we squeezed it into a cup.  Then we put a small hole in the cup and we placed another cup inside it.  When we pressed the other cup the remaining contents came out.  (We’ll leave it to your imagination as to what that could have represented!)

We all had a fantastic time and we can’t wait for next week when we will be learning about teeth and making tooth paste.

Year 4


We have been writing Manchester based poems to show how great Manchester is. We wanted to show a tribute to the people of Manchester in respect of the terrible loss we are feeling.

More homelearning

Over the weeks we made some Viking long boats and some Viking shields. We made them out of card board and we put as much detail as possible on them. On the Viking shield Ella used some recycling materials like a yogurt pot for the top and on the Viking long ship Alicia used cardboard for the oars and so did George.

On Wednesday at the swimming gala, we went up against four schools. The winning school would win a trophy. I took park in the front crawl race and I came 2nd. I won this fantastic medal which I will be wearing with pride.

Thorp World book day

Today we are all dressed up for world book day. All the classes have got a class author and are dressing up as a character from one of their books. My class’s author is Michael Morpurgo and I have dressed up as Ocky from Mr Nobody’s eyes. My favourite Michael Morpurgo book is The Eagle in the Snow or Waiting for Anya.
