Division trail

We went outside this week to practise the bus stop method for division around a trail on the playground. We were very enthusiastic to solve all of the calculations and complete the trail.


Active maths

Year 4 enjoyed an active maths session outside this week. They had to solve multiplication questions hidden on the outside equipment and find the answer. All of the answers followed on from one another. Much fun was had by all.

Teaching new skills

As part of PSHE we have been teaching a partner a new skill. These have been varied including learning to play some notes on an instrument, play a game or speak some words of a new language. Much fun was had by all.

Atomic Tom

Year 4 enjoyed a very entertaining workshop run by Atomic Tom as part of our ‘states of matter’ science topic. We practised being a solid, liquid and gas outside and Atomic Tom brought dry ice into our classroom, this was very fun. We also made our very own slime.  

Christmas lanterns

Class 7 had a wonderful morning making Christmas paper lanterns. We had an artist from OYAP to show us how to make the lanterns from willow, tissue paper, masking tape and lots of glue. We worked brilliantly in pairs to create our Christmas lanterns. 

Canopic jars

We enjoyed learning about the organs which the ancient Egyptians preserved before mummifying a body. We made a class set of canopic jars with jelly, sponge, spaghetti and balloons to represent the organs then we made our own cardboard jars and learnt about the god’s head on top of the jar.

Looking closely at animal teeth

We have been using our knowledge of the different types of teeth to work out which skull belonged to which animal. We have also used our knowledge about teeth to identify if animals are carnivores, herbivores or omnivores. We also watched some interesting film clips of animals catching prey and eating.
