Year 4 had a fantastic time kicking off their unit of work inspired by ‘extreme survival’! They put up their own tents, learnt how to purify water, made fires and shelters. They camped overnight and had a thoroughly good time. It was great for them to be independent and push themselves in new ways.
I loved going to the Gurdwara and exploring it. I just wish I could go there again! (Isobel F)
I enjoyed the trip to the Gurdwara Temple. Sikh people were reading the Guru Granth Sahib. I saw the Khanda. (Abigail)
My favourite thing about the Gurdwara was going to the prayer hall. It was very interesting. I learnt there were 10 Gurus. (Ben)
I learnt more about the Guru Granth Sahib and how they treated it like a living person. They put it to bed and also purified the air. (Matthew)
In science, Year 4 have been learning about different habitats around the school. We investigated the conditions in these habitats and learnt which plants and animals live there. We then became animal ‘estate agents’ and produced some excellent ‘For Sale’ details which would persuade the animals to buy a new habitat to live in!
Year 4 have created an amazing piece of artwork that will be given to our Bosnian link school for their 40th birthday. They used letters from Bosnian children to find out what was important to them, and then ‘etched’ onto metallic squares pictorial representations. The result was stunning.
