Owls - Year 4
What a day!!!! We were so lucky that it didn't rain. I hope everyone slept well when they got in (there were several owls who could have fallen asleep when we got back to the classroom!!)
After our walk down to Woodmill we started by learning how to use a compass and then completing their orienteering course around the site.
After a quick break we then went on our river walk to see all the river features that we had been learning about.
There is so much wildlife at Woodmill. Have a look at what we managed to spot. Still haven't spotted their kingfishers though.
This week in RE we have been learning about angels in Christianity. We learnt about Angel Gabriel, Cherubim and Seraphim. We are very proud of our angel models!
As part of our Rivers topic we have been learning about the different parts for the river.
Have a look at some of the facts we know!
Kickstarting our new States of Matter topic in Science, Owls class investigated a range of materials to determine if they are solid, liquid or gas!
We had a lot of fun! And made a lot of mess! Investigating tricky objects such as jelly, shaving cream, glitter and balloons!
What an amazing first week back together!!!
It has been brilliant having everyone back in the classroom. We have had so much fun this week: team building, science, art, topic.
One of our art projects was to make our own dream catchers.
We did lots of team building this week. I think our favourite was building towers with spaghetti and marshmallows. It did make quite a bit of mess!!
We learned about the digestive system by creating our own!!!!
We mashed bananas, crackers and orange juice and simulated the intestives with tights!
Some of the faces are brilliant!
Well done to everyone, whether you were in school or at home. You have been amazing.
We are so so so proud of you all.
Thank you to all the adults who helped at home.
You are amazing too.
World Book Day
Just because we were not all in school, doesn't mean we couldn't have an amazing World Book Day.
We created book covers, wrote stories, made potato characters and loads more.

What a day! The children looked amazing and had great fun breaking into the tomb and learning more about Ancient Egypt.
Have a look at our photo galleries to join in with our fun.
Look at the amazing costumes!
Kings, Queens, mummies and explorers.
Inside the tomb we found an Ancient Egyptian sarcophagus. And naturally, all the children wanted to get inside!!!!!!!
We started our Egyptian topic this week by learning about the brilliant (yet disgusting!) mummification process.
We talked about why mummification was needed in ANCIENT EGYPTIAN TIMES. wE THEN mummified oranges! look at all the mess!!!!!
What a great start to the school year. It's been amazing having the children back. Please welcome the new Owls class!
