World Mental Health Day

For World Mental Health Day we took part in #HelloYellow for Young Minds. We all wore something yellow with our uniforms and completed activities thinking about what makes us happy. Year 4 also completed some mindful colouring, superhero ‘happy’ badges and created our own Superheroes that could help somebody feeling sad.

Earning a living

We have begun our ‘Earning a Living’ topic in Geography. We have been thinking about why people have jobs, what kinds of jobs people have and the kinds of jobs we would like to do when we grow up. For our lesson this week, we matched job titles to job descriptions to find out more about them. We then thought about the jobs that we would most and least like to do!

Geography

In Geography, we found out about industries in certain areas of the UK. We then used the laptops to create pages of information about these places and displayed them in class.

Macbeth Day

We loved watching Young Shakespeare’s performance of Macbeth on Friday and have continued to complete some drama work about the play.

Space Day

We loved Space Day on 7th October! We researched planets, made up our own mnemonics, learned about Tim Peake’s visit to the ISS, created art work to show what Earth would look like from the ISS and even tested our own balloon-powered rocket!

Science – Electricity

For the first lesson of our Science ‘Electricity’ topic, we were given a bulb, a bulb holder, a battery, a battery holder and two wires. We were challenged to get the bulb to light! Once we had completed a circuit using two wires, Mrs Cooke challenged us to get the bulb to light with only one wire! Some of us managed to complete this challenge too!
