Snow Leopard and Spider Monkey
Year 4 loved taking part in Science Week in January. We attended a workshop run by Chatham Dockyard learning about states of matter; went inside a planetarium and learnt about how scientists are exploring space further away than we ever thought possible and spent time in our classroom finding out more about electricity and using equipment to test out our ideas and creating a light-up picture.
The children got to meet the children's author Sheena Dempsey and ask her questions about her work. They found out about how and why she became an author and spent time discussing the illustration work in her books.
After her session speaking to the children, Sheena Dempsey signed books for children and they had the opportunity to put their drawing skills into action creating their Splash and Pablo stories.
The children enjoyed learning some Chinese dances and carrying out Chinese craft as part of their learning about Chinese New Year.

So far this term we have had both Monster Mash Dress up and TTRockstars dress up days! We have learnt about area by counting squares and are now learning our times tables in maths - we're up to our 7s! In English, we have battled beasts and in science learnt about how sound is made from vibrations and travels in waves. DT this term is all about biscuits, so we channeled our inner Paul Hollywood and Pru Leith to evaluate different biscuits.
