Year 4 - Mrs Dodson and Mrs Portwine
Murton Park Day
We spent a fantastic day at Murton Park yesterday. Despite the wet weather, we acted as Pike men, made candles and air fresheners and wrote in Tudor script. Master David commented on everyone's exceptional behaviour and said he had never taught a group of such able soldiers! It was a real 'hands on' day and helped us all to understand what life was like in Tudor times.
Today was just absolutely amazing. I could not be more proud of our class. You were ALL absolutely incredible at Junior Warrior today. We got so muddy and some of us came back to school minus our trainers, but it was just brilliant!
Practical Science Fun
To kick off our new Science topic - "Where does all that food go?" the children had fun exploring how they thought the human digestion system went together! They worked in their house teams to complete the investigation.
Askham Bryan Wildlife and Conservation Park
As part of our Rainforest topic we visited Askham Bryan Wildlife and Conservation Park. We began the day exploring outside, looking at lots of different types of animals, many of which come from the Amazon Rainforest. The lemurs were fascinating and we loved watching their antics! This was followed by rainforest craft workshops and then saving the best for last, we got to touch and hold creatures found in the rainforest. We had the opportunity to get close to a cockroach, a milk frog, a Royal Python and a stick insect.
Year 4 is currently receiving Athletics coaching from Matt from Leeds Rhinos. We have spent the last two sessions learning standing and triple jumps.
