Year 4

Jack and The Beanstalk

On Thursday   25th of January, we went Birmingham Hippodrome to watch Jack and the Beanstalk. It took about 30 minutes to get there and about half an hour to get back. To get there, we went on a coach.  

When the Pantomime started, everyone was screaming with excitement. The jokes were really funny and everyone was shocked because at the start there were three huge giants and near the end there was an enormous giant coming towards the audience. It started speaking, which was really cool. We even got to take our own snacks and when it got hot we had some ice lollies.  

My favourite person in the pantomime was Jake because I loved his silly jokes but they were a bit inappropriate for us kids. It was a really enjoyable and fun pantomime and I would like to go again.

On Wednesday 15th November, we had a visit from Severn Trent Water. After a brilliant assembly, Year 4 were treated to a workshop all about sewerage. We learnt that you can only flush the three Ps down the toilet - TOILET PAPER, PEE and POO! We then watched while Andy made sewerage. He threw in poo (don’t worry it wasn’t real!), pee and toilet paper but then lots of things we shouldn’t be trying to flush away such as cotton wool, cooking fat, toys and even goldfish! Our task was then to work in teams to filter and clean the sewerage  as much as we could. We did a great job and Andy was very pleased. Take a look at the pictures below...

Did you know that the shell of an egg is made of a similar substance to the enamel of our teeth? In Science, we have been testing the effect of different drinks on our teeth by leaving eggs in different liquids and observing what happens. We found that the acidic and sugary fruit juices had the worst effects. Take a look at what happened and don’t forget to brush your teeth!

In Year 4, we have been working in the style of David Hockney. After looking at the different techniques he used, we produced our final pieces. To do these, we explored the school grounds and took photos of areas we liked. We then used oil pastels to create these in the style of David Hockney. Do any of these places look familiar?!
