Owls - Year 4

Woodmill Visit
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.

There is so much wildlife at Woodmill. Have a look at what we managed to spot. Still haven't spotted their kingfishers though.

Solids

Liquids

Gases

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!

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!

Remote Learning
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.
