Here Come The Dragons... 

Our dragon topic continues this term with a focus on Cressida Cowell’s ‘How to train your dragon’ and non- chronological reports about dragons (including the fascinating, and real, Komodo dragon!) In guided reading and topic lessons we will be moving from life in Anglo Saxon times to focus on the Viking invaders!

4.4.19 Year 4 enjoyed working systematically to identify and match up a variety of scents! They buzzed happily around the hall and made careful predictions. They created some AMAZING ink drawings and watercolours of bees after identifying the body parts like thorax and abdomen...

3.4.19 INVESTIGATING POLLEN Today we had a brilliant time finding out about pollen with Dr Helen. We looked at pollen under electronic microscopes, we conducted pollen counts and made our own pollen grain out of clay. Fantastic learning everyone!

2.4.19 What's the buzz? We had a brilliant time investigating how we can change the buzzing noise made by a balloon. We made predictions, planned our experiment and made it fair, collected data using the iPads and drew conclusions. Fantastic work everyone!

Ask us how we made the balloons buzz!

Year 4 have bee...n decorating biscuits to raise money for a bee charity. Well done Year 4.

It's STEM week!! We can't wait to show you everything we have been up to!! Keep checking back to see all our Bee related activities. It's going to be BEE-rilliant!! 🐝

It started with our launch assembly....

We were visited by an apiarist (bee keeper) who told us how to look after bees and why they are so important. Did you know 50,000 bees live in a hive? He showed us how to use smoker and that it is used to help calm the bees because if a bee smells smoke, they panic and feed on honey to prepare themselves for a journey.

We found out about the protective clothing bee keepers wear. They are white so you can spot any bees. They also have ties to make sure bees can get in the suit. When bees are angry they aim for the face so it is really important to wear a net to protect your face.

Peace Talk

Today, we were very lucky to be joined by Owen and Bob from the CND. They talked to us about peace and we discussed what it means to us. We listened carefully to each other's views and the story of Sadako. We then wrote down our wish for peace and created our own oragami crane. We thought about whether children can change the world.

⭐️Fantastic work everyone!! ⭐️

World Book Day 2019
