Year 4 Science

Year 4 have enjoyed learning about electricity this half term and particularly building their own circuits.

After mastering how to make simple series and parallel circuits, they had to investigate what kind of materials were conductors or insulators.

Well done everybody! We hope you also enjoy our next topic which is called Animals including Humans and concentrates on the digestive system, food groups and teeth.

St Paul’s Easter Service

We had a wonderful Easter service in church today.

We are particularly proud of the children who read the Easter story and the prayers. They did a fabulous job!

Well done to all the classes for making the wonderful things that were given to Thierry throughout the service and for singing their little hearts out. It was amazing!

Thank you to all the parents, carers, family and friends who attended. We hope you enjoyed it too and look forward to seeing you again soon.

Making Matzoh in Year 4

Today Year 4 made some Matzoh bread in RE as they were learning about the Jewish festival called Passover or Pesach. This festival commemorates the Exodus (Moses leading the Jewish people out of Egypt).
The ingredients needed to make this flat, unleavened bread are olive oil, flour, water and salt.
The children enjoyed making and eating this bread with Mrs Rashid.
Well done to everyone involved.

Year 4’s Mummy

Over the past few weeks, we have been learning about the mummification process used in Ancient Egypt so we have mummified a banana!

The children had fun pretending the banana was an actual body. First, they inserted a metal rod into the nose, trying to liquify the brain in order to remove it. Then, they performed an incision on the left hand side of the banana to remove the organs. After that, they rubbed the inside and outside of the banana with salt. Next, they mummified it, wrapping it up with bandages. Finally, they placed the mummified banana into a sarcophagus. Every Friday, we have been checking changes to observe the different stages of decay.

Here are some of the photos of this experiment.

Super Sounds in Year 4

Today, Year 4 were very noisy!! But it was all for a good reason: we were learning about sound. The children had to find out how different instruments make different sounds and how the pitch can change.

They explored the sounds made by various instruments in pairs and then had to present their findings to the class which was not always easy, but they got there in the end. So well done, Year 4. Keep up the good work!
