Year 4 have had an exciting return to school after the festive period.
Firstly, the children were incredibly excited (and also saddened) to reach the end of their class text, ‘The Boy at the Back of the Class’. The classroom was full of emotion, and there were even some tears shed! The children loved following the journey of Ahmet, a Syrian refugee, who – with the help of his friends – aims to track down his parents.
The children have started a new topic in Science – The Digestive System. They have really impressed with their knowledge and their scientific vocabulary. They have really enjoyed learning about the human body and have found it exciting (and at times, amusing!)
They were also lucky enough to visit Baxter College last week in order to visit a real science lab, where they were able to use Bunsen Burners in a practical lesson! They all looked great in their protective goggles!
Finally, the children have been sequencing a dance in PE around the theme of deforestation. They have been finalising their routine and adding last minute adjustments – the staff are very excited to see the end results!
