DT in Year 4
In DT this year we have had several exciting projects. We designed and made nightlights, using our knowledge of electrical circuits from our Science lessons. We also designed and made our own Easter biscuits, carefully following a recipe, measuring and mixing ingredients in a group and then adding our own flavourings and finally decorating the finished products before the best part … tasting! Our final project was to investigate, design and make our own pencil cases. We learned to sew seams and fastenings such as zips and buttons and added details using different types of stitches.
Geography in Year 4
Following our River Trip which followed the source from Silver Stream to the mouth at Lymington, we made our own river in a tray. We used stones, soil and sand to create a mountain and dropped water on top as melting snow and rain. We were able to watch as the water ran down and through erosion formed features of a river such as waterfalls and meanders.
Year 4 were lucky enough to experience a visit from local author and story teller Chris Connaughton during the Summer Term. He performed the classic tale, Treasure Island for the children and then set them off on a number of writing challenges. During the day, Chris visited each of the classes and gave a writing workshop about generating ideas and the processes which authors go through to create stories. Year 4 finished the day by enjoying more of story being performed by Chris and a short question and answer session.
