Year 4 Events Gallery 2017

Take a look at some of the great things we have been doing in school.

Forest School Sessions - July 2017

Year 4 had two forest school sessions and (despite the rain) had an amazing time. They built dens, tied knots, started fires safely and split wood using a bill hook. The sessions were designed to show the class bushcraft skills that they can build into their own use of the local outdoor environment.

 

Castleshaw Centre - June 2017

Year 4 had two great days at The Castleshaw Centre, Delph. The class had sessions which looked at habitats (our current science topic) and took the opportunty of the great weather to explore rivers and find the source of a stream that ultimately leads to the irish Sea! In the stream dipping session the children found small fish, leeches, water fleas and one group even found a crayfish which impressed the instructor. When studying rivers the children climbed to the top the strangely named Broadhead Noddle (376m above sea level) and were able to look over into Denshaw. The class looked at the formation of rivers and the ways reservoirs have been used over the centuries. It was wonderful to enjoy the outdoors with the class.

 

Healthy Minds Charity Visit - March 2017

On Wednesday 8th March we had a lovely visit from the mental health charity Healthy Minds. We learnt about how we need to look after our minds and emotions as well as our bodies and talked about different ways to do this e.g. having hobbies, exercising, talking to other people and having quiet time.

 

Blue Planet Aquarium Trip January 2017

The Year 4 trip to the Blue Planet Aquarium was a huge success and the children were great representatives of the school. We have been studying 'Under the Sea' in our topic and in particular have looked at pearl diving in the Middle East.

 

Blue Planet Aquarium Trip Continued... January 2017

The trip has really helped the children envisage the wonders of the sea and imagine what it would be like diving into the Persian Gulf to search for oysters and the pearls they may hold. We plan to write a diary entry for our character, Saeed as he experiences his first dive and create our own sea creature in DT. Thank you to all the parents who supported this trip.
