Today, Year 4 worked well in pairs to prepare a sequence of moves using balancing and travelling skills they have been practising. Well done, Year 4!
Having tasted different ingredients, we now selected the ones we liked best to each make a pasta sauce. Then came the fun bit...eating it! A great way to end the week.
Following up on our work on food chains, Year 4 made Top Trump cards for producer, predators and prey. It was great fun to create the cards and even more fun to play afterwards!
It was wonderful to celebrate harvest as a school yesterday. Year 4 led us in reflecting on a passage from Matthew's Gospel:
This reading comes from the Gospel of Matthew
One day, Jesus was talking to his friends and he said:
One of these days I will say:

Today, Year 4 tasted a range of different foods that might be included in a pasta sauce...which we will be making in a few weeks time! Anchovies and olives where the most controversial, however several children found out they enjoyed a range of foods they hadn't had before.
Today, Year 4 dodged the rain and visited Lancaster City Museum and the Roman Ruins below the Castle to back up our history work this term.

A puzzle to solve in science!
Could we recognise which animal was which by looking just at their skulls and the sort of teeth they have? Quite tricky!!
As part of their learning in RE and PSHE, Year 4 have been thinking about their talents. What a talented group of children they are! Talents include dancing, singing, reading, running, talking, maths, caring for others. We read a letter from Pope Francis which urges young people to think about how…
In Science, we were investigating how our bodies absorb certain parts of our food and get rid of waste! We did this by creating a 'stomach' and passing it through 'intestines'. (Good thing it was only Cola and bread!!) Messy but good fun!
What a treat we had today! A world champion wheelchair basketball player, Nat Pattinson, came into school to show us how to play wheelchair basketball. The children (and some teachers!) had great fun using the wheelchairs to move around the playground, dodging each other to try to get the ball…
