Designing our own civilisation!
In English, we have been reading and writing about Weslandia, a picture book by Paul Fleischmann. In it, Wesley is tired of the ‘daily grind’ and everything being the same as everything else. As a summer project, Wesley decides to create his own civilisation.   Year 4 are now planning to create their own civilisation […]

This term just gets better…and wetter!
What a half term Y4 Maple have had! From introducing our science topic trying to save ice from melting to understanding the full processes of the water cycle, Y4 have learnt so much! The children have loved dissecting and proving facts such as ‘The same amount of water exists now as it always has’ and […]

Science Week!
As our topic this half term is ‘Is Water Always Wet?’, we have used our research questions from our WOW introduction to think about how water can be a solid, liquid or a gas.   The pupils have produced some excellent posters to explain the process as well as develop further research questions to investigate […]

STOP IT CHANGING STATE!!
A great start to the half term’s topic of ‘Is water always wet?’ was had by all as we attempted to stop some mysterious blocks from changing state! In fact, the pupils had to stop coloured ice from melting and they did their absolute best to do so. In doing this, they generated some fantastic […]

The pupils are on the way with measuring, cutting and stitching so we hope to share these with the world shortly!! Meanwhile, our Greek pottery turned out […]
