Welcome to Class 4
Our topic this term is rivers. We will explore this dynamic feature of the landscape in a variety of ways, following its journey from beginning to end.
Recently we had a visit from the educational outreach team from Severn Trent Water. Phil showed us where the water in the taps comes from and how they treat it so it is clean enough to drink. We investigated how much water a family could use depending on whether they were water savers or water wasters. We had to use our Maths skills to measure the amount of water to find out how much each family had used. We had to convert from litres to millilitres so it would fit in the measuring cylinder. We also made three promises to save water ourselves over the next three weeks.

It's the Summer term!
The theme this term is ADVENTURE! We will join the Famous Five, venture into their exciting world and will learn new skills to help us.
These photos are of our adventure to Sandall Beat Wood. We designed and built shelters which the Ranger tested using a leaf-blower and a bucket of water (generally the shelters were fit for purpose but there were some casualties!). Our next task was to light a fire using a steel on which to cook. We successfully made nachos, popcorn, wraps, grapes covered in 'fluff' and 'smores'. Everything was delicious although, at times, messy! A big thank you to Mrs Wilson and Mr Martin, our governors, who made it possible for us to go on our adventure and have fun.
This term everyone is looking forward to lots of new learning and making progress across the curriculum. These are the topics that we will be covering:
Science – 'Shapeshifting' and 'Brilliant Bubbles'
