Today, Year 4 flew kites in the playground. Unfortunately, Miss Skill ended-up in the flower-bed, but that's a whole other story.
For instructions on kite flying and making them, watch the link below.
As usual, this term is amazingly busy but interesting to boot! We are learning all about the weather and electricity so, if parents and children have a look at the 'Homework' button at the bottom of the class page, it will show you the types of weather we are investigating together. In addition to the weather, electricity will be investigated after half-term. This will include: circuits, switches and energy saving.
Look out for our energy saving animation film, draught excluders and weather stations coming soon.
You'll need to bring a coat and possibly some wellies, so that we can go exploring and measuring the weather, using our weather stations. In addition, we will be flying our hand-made kites, which you will make as part of our math's/science lessons, so you'll need warm clothes for that day because it will have to be a windy day!
If you want to get a head of the learning, here is what you could look into:
- Extreme weather
- The effect of weather on the environment and humans
- What weather does for us that is good and what is bad
- Where electricity comes from
- How electricity is used
- How to save electricity
- What is a draught excluder
- What is a circuit, cell and switch
- How to measure temperature
- What an angle is (not angel)
- The water cycle (It's not a bike)
- How to measure shapes
Have fun and let's learn together.
