What a fantastic day!

Year 4 had a great trip to Speke Hall to learn all about its history, especially during the Tudor era. We found out all about how the house was built and the family that built it. We had a look at the rooms inside the house and even participated in some Tudor dancing in the Great Hall! 

Jack and Anna-Mae took on the role as a Tudor boy and girl and got to dress up just like them. We had a great day and cannot wait to continue with our Tudor topic. 

We had great fun learning all about Henry VIII and his 6 wives. We demonstrated our independence and creativity by designing and information pack all about them. 

Today, we became news reporters! We took on the role very well and were great presenters. We were able to discuss all about renewable and non-renewable ways of generating electricity. 

This half term, we are enjoying our new class reader 'The Iron Man'. We worked extremely hard as a team to create our own Iron Men. We used different materials and came up with some fantastic ideas. We are so impressed with the finished products. 

We had a fantastic day with the Pearl of Africa. We thoroughly enjoyed singing, dancing, drumming and making beaded bracelets.

We had a fantastic afternoon finding out all about animals from the rainforest. We observed Giant Snails, Snakes, Spiders, Millipedes and extra special Sugar Gliders.  We even got to hold them! We discussed their natural habitat, diet and lots of other interesting facts. 

We used haribo to create our own classification keys. We thought about their characteristics before coming up with an appropriate question.

We went on an invertebrate hunt around the school grounds. We searched under rocks, in the mud and around the trees. We used our classification key to help us identify what kind of invertebrates we had found.

We have been focusing on The Tin Forest. We came up with some questions for the old man and used hot seating for him to answer. We took on the role extremely well!

We have been learning all about Living Things and their Habitats in Science. We explored the different ways plants and animals can be classified. We used hoops, leaves and liquorice allsorts to help us. 

We practiced writing Roman Numerals by creating our own clocks with hoops and straws.
