No Pens Day
Year 4 had lots of fun celebrating No Pens Day. We did dance in the morning relating to the Romans and in our Maths lessons we were practising our group work skills to match fractions. Both activities helped us with our communication skills and helped us to work better with each other.
Year 4 put on a brilliant performance for their class assembly. We told the story of a 1930s family and the effect war had on their lives. In addition, we remembered the sacrifices of all those who gave their lives in past wars and are serving in present wars. It was a memorable assembly and everyone thoroughly enjoyed it. Well done year 4!
Year 4 had a great session with St John’s ambulance. The children learnt how to assess someone if they find them unconscious and then how to put the casualty into the recovery position. They also learnt what numbers to dial in an emergency and the kind of information that is important to give to the emergency services. We discussed the importance of knowing our own address and telephone number for emergency purposes.
The children had a great time on their orienteering trip at Campbell Park. We learnt how to use a compass and used them to tell us which direction we were travelling in. We then went on a sculpture hunt and explored all the beautiful sculptures that are in Campbell Park.
We practised how to classify using Liquorice Allsorts! We had to create our own branching database and classify the sweets according to their features! We had a lot of fun and it was very tricky not to eat the sweets too!
The children had a great time doing an invertebrate hunt. They went to the log area and used different equipment and classification keys to find different mini beasts. Lots of different invertebrates were found like earwigs, woodlice, spiders and slugs!
