Guess who surprised us with a visit! Mr Willy Wonka himself came to see Year 4 this morning. The children asked him questions and he told us many interesting things about his extraordinary life, including some trade secrets!

Tuesday 20th October 2020

For PSHE, we discussed online safety and created a class online safety charter. 

4B’s Online Safety Charter

 

We agree to:

  • Keep our passwords safe.
  • Keep personal information private.
  • Think before we write when messaging others.
  • Use kind words online.
  • Tell an adult if we are not feeling safe online.
  • Ask for help when needed.
  • Think before we click.
  • Check if it’s real.

In science, we had a look at our enquiry that we set up on Thursday. We placed eggs into 6 different liquids to find out which liquid would cause the most tooth decay, Look what has happened to the eggs!

Mrs Lees kindly donated her children's baby teeth for us to test. We put one of the teeth in water and one in cola to compare. Which one do you think is which? 

Here are our results. The vinegar caused the most damage to the eggshell. It weakened the eggshell and cause it to soften. We also found that a layer of the eggshell was peeling away! Why do you think the vinegar did this? 

 

Cola caused the eggshell to crack all over and it also stained and discoloured the eggshell. This shows the impact fizzy drinks could have on the enamel of your teeth. 

Thursday 15th October 2020

We have set up an investigation to find out which drinks cause the most tooth decay. We put eggs into different drinks to see what happens over time. We used eggs because the shell of an egg is similar to the enamel on our teeth. 

 

  • What do you think will happen and why? 
  • Which drink do you think will cause the most tooth decay and why?

Last week’s homework followed on from our special assembly from ‘Interland’. We enjoyed exploring the website and discovering the best ways to keep safe online. 

 

Here are are some eye catching posters which will remind us all to keep safe when we use the internet.

Friday 2nd October

We are super proud of our diary entries. We wrote diary entries from the perspective of Charlie Bucket from 'Charlie and The Chocolate Factory'. 

Thursday 1st October 2020 - National Poetry Day

 

Today we had a magical day conjuring lost words back to importance. We explored and performed the poem 'lark' from 'The Lost Words', a book of spells.  They are called ‘spells’ rather than poems as they are designed to be spoken (or sung!) out loud in order to summon back these words and creatures into our hearts. The book began as a response to the removal of everyday nature words from a widely used children’s dictionary, because those words were not being used enough by children to be included.

 

We had an enjoyable day rehearsing and performing 'lark' and using collage to decorate our larks with words and pictures from newspapers. We also listened to 'The Little Astronaut' (see below) and were captivated by the music and lyrics.

Monday 28th September 2020

 

The pupils have crating their own Aztec masks at home using mosaic. 

Thursday 3rd September 2020

 

We had a lovely discussion today about the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC). We explored the 54 articles and pupils were able to articulate the articles that resonated with them the most. It was difficult to decide on three articles to include in our class charter, as we felt they were all just as important as each other. After a thorough voting system, we finally decided on three articles. Read our class charters below.
