Wild Workshop – Poppy’s work
On Wednesday we had a Wild Workshop. The person who brought in all of the creatures was a man named Stephen.
Firstly, we talked about the different groups of bugs. We also felt a sheep’s teeth and passed around a nest. It was so cool! Then each table got a tub full of millipedes, centipedes, spiders (only one group found one), slugs, snails and lots more. After that, all of the groups observed all of the different creatures in a microscope. Then we observed woodlice to see if they were pregnant or not.
After snack, Steve put a mouse on each table and we named them. Our group named ours Whiskers. She was so cute! Then every group went outside and grabbed as much as they possibly could. Then we went back in and made a habitat for the mice. Our mouse loved it so much. I think we did a great job.
Finally, we did an experiment to see which tunnel our mouse liked the best. We counted how many times she went in. The winner was the one with the most stoppers
I had a fantastic time and can’t wait to do it again in year 5.
Our Year 4 children took part in a science experiment to reconstruct the digestive system.
PSHE – Heart Smart Robots
Year 4 children enjoyed making robots like ‘Boris’ the heart smart robot out of recycled materials.
Charlotte brought a World War One diary into school and we enjoyed sharing it in class.
