What have we been up to...
Today we had a very special visitor to our class. Jayne from United Utilities came to help us in our new topic of water. We learn lots more about the Water Cycle and even made our own human version of the cycle! We also discussed how we can save water help reduce waste. We have made an individual promise of how we will save water over the coming weeks. I Hope you keep these promises!
Welcome back to the summer term! (Our final term as Year Four)
I hope you all had a lovely break away and are ready to get back to our exciting new learning. Our topic for this term is Water! We will be looking at the Water Cycle, where we get water from, what it is needed for and much much more...
This topic will include lots of exciting activities and visitors to our school along with our adventure to Crosby Lakeside.
What a term we are going to have.
What an eggcellent day we have had!
We began our day with a visit to church to make our own Easter Gardens. We had a lovely time learning about the significance of the cross and the tomb at Easter. You can come along to church and see our Easter Gardens at a special service on Good Friday. (25th March)
We then continued our eggciting Easter day with a special craft. We made our very own Faberge Eggs and settled them down in a lovely decorated nest.
We hope you all have an eggtra special Easter Weekend!
Visit to the Mosque.
Our school 'other faith week' focused on Islam and all the aspects of the religion, such as prayer, culture and worship. To deepen our understanding on this we visited Southport Mosque. We had an excellent talk by the imam who showed the children many items of the Islamic faith. We enjoyed listening to the imam and asking questions we were keen to have answered.
What a lovely trip we had
Disability Awareness Day.
On Wednesday 2nd March we participated in Disability Awareness Day, where we aimed to educate ourselves on what it is like to live life with a disability. We met a man called John McCorkell who has had cerebral palsy since birth and now travels around schools teaching about his company called 'It's all normal' which promotes inclusion.
The children listened to John talk about his life and experiences in an assembly and then took part in a workshop where they got a chance to ask questions and gain an understanding of what it is like to be disabled.
In year four we were amazed by John's story and how he lives life to the maximum. John endures many challenges in life but he doesn't let that put him down!
World Book Week
Our second week of the half term was another busy week for us in year four. It was Pirate week! We enjoyed looking at the Book "Jolly Roger" by Colin McNaughton. We finished our week taking up our swords and putting on our best Ooh Aaarggh's for Pirate day. We certainly enjoyed ourselves!
Guinea Pig Week!
We began our half term with some very special visitors...Our school Pets! We enjoyed visiting the guinea pigs and putting forward our suggestions to name them! Our writing for the week was also focused on our furry friends. We created a set of instructions for washing your hands after handling the pets. A lesson that will be valuable to us all.
Watch this space for future visits to the Guinea Pigs!
