Fun in Year Four!

Here are some photos of Year 4 working hard and having fun at the same time!

They did a couple of experiments in Science to find out if the bubbles in fizzy drinks are weightless or not, and to work out how long it takes for chocolate to melt at different temperatures. They then made their own lollies since it would have been a shame to waste all that lovely chocolate!

They designed a chocolate bar label and wrapper in Art/DT lessons.

In English they worked in groups to write and perform a TV advert to sell a fizzy drink , a chocolate bar or a packet of crisps.

No need to say we have been feeling very hungry all week!!

Well done, Year 4!

Florence Nightingale visits Year 2

Year 2 have been finding out about significant people from the past. As part of their research, they have been looking at Florence Nightingale. Luckily, she was able to visit us in school and share her achievements and what life was really like during her lifetime.

 

Florence brought in some items for us to touch and see. There was also some smells so that we could really imagine what it was like at the hospital in Scutari.

We also did some drama. The children could choose whether to be porters or nurses.

They had to:

  • Travel to Scutari on a boat for 2 weeks
  • Clean the hospital at Scutari
  • Remove all dirty bandages and bedding
  • Use clean clothes and clean sheets
  • Get rid of all the rats
  • Make sure that any injured soldiers had clean bandages
  • Give the soldiers healthy food to eat
  • Empty bed pans!!!

 

Florence Nightingale was significant because she changed how people were looked after when they were ill. Her changes to nursing are still used today. She was known as the “Lady of the Lamp” because at night time she would go and check on the soldiers with a small lamp in her hand.

Year 2 really enjoyed their visit from Florence Nightingale.
