As part of their work on the human body, year 4 carried out an experiment which re-enacted what happens once we swallow our food. It might look a little bit disgusting but there was lots of great learning!
This morning, Y4 have been creating their own trailers for our class text ‘The Dark’. We found images (that creators are happy for us to use), edited them and then added them to the trailer. We used the scripts that we had written earlier in the week to tempt people to pick up a copy and discover just why the dark pays Laszlo a visit……..
Year 4 began to apply their knowledge of fractions to some real life problems. The big question was which table to choose to try and get the most chocolate? The problem was made even trickier because some tables had one bar chocolate whilst others had 2 or 3. We kept taking a pause to work out how much chocolate each person was getting to try and help others make a wise choice. Once everyone had chosen, we worked out the final share.
Since everyone had worked so hard, we decided to actually enjoy some of the chocolate. But not before we worked out how many pieces we would get each!
Everyone loved coming together to see all the fantastic costumes to celebrate World Book Day. Even the staff got involved and dressed up as the characters from the book Peter Pan.
What an amazing day Y4 had at the Discovery Museum in Newcastle.
When we arrived, we had an extra special treat – a ride on the Red Arrows Flight Simulator. It was definitely one of the highlights of the day! We got to experience what it would be like to sit in the cockpit of the Red Arrow jet and saw just how close the planes get to one another. There were lots of screams of enjoyment!
Once everyone had landed back on the ground, we explored the different floors of the museum. There is so much to see but we really enjoyed the interactive science maze where we were able to explore gravity and forces, electricity, sound and optics through lots of experiments and games.
After lunch, our workshop leader took us to the educational room where we worked in teams to create different circuits. Our teachers were very impressed with our knowledge, especially as the challenges became harder and harder. Finally, we all got to make our very own torch to take home using the circuit we had created. The photos show just how much fun we had!
Many happy returns to Mrs Lawson who was introduced to our special birthday assembly!
As part of our music topic, Y4 have been learning to Beatbox. What do you think of our performance?
Year 4 had a wonderful time at the winter warmer session. They loved practising their fire lighting skills!
A great time was had by all!
Wow! What a performance our Y4, 5 and 6 children put on today! They had so many lines and songs to learn but they were just amazing. Marsden has so much talent!
