Every week your child will be sent home with spellings to learn, they will have a school reading scheme book as well as a 'free-choice' book from our Yr 4 book shelf and they are expected to be practicing their timestables as much as possible.

Year 4 had a fantastic time yesterday (17/5) at Askham Bryan Conservation Park. They were amazed by the different animals they encountered and learnt lots about carnivores, omnivores, herbivores and detritivores in the educational workshop! 

There are some amazing pictures! See below...

Year 4 went to Climing Depot and absolutely loved the climbing walls! It was a great experience and we loved pretending we were climbing a mountain.

Year 4 have been learning about the Digestive System this half term. This afternoon, we made a demonstration of how the Digestive system works. We mashed biscuits and banana with water (saliva) and orange juice (stomach acid) and squeezed it through a pair of tights. We drained excess liquid and cut the end of the tights to make an anal passage. The children they made make-shift faeces.

The children really enjoyed the demonstration, we even had a few gags!

 

Yesterday, Year 4 competed in the Leeds KS2 Skipping Competition. After an amazing afternoon, a lot of hard-work and determination and some very big gasps for breath, the All Saints Year 4 class were crowned the CHAMPIONS! We came 1st place overall, with every child winning at least a bronze, silver or gold award in their own area of skipping expertise. Myself and all the staff at All Saints are over the moon and so proud of their achievement! 

Yesterday, Year 4 went to Askham Bryan Wildlife and Conservation centre. They managed to see lots of interesting animals and learnt all sorts of amazing facts. Below are some pictures of what we got up to!

Thackray Museum of Medicine

Year 4 really enjoyed their trip to Thackray yesterday. We had a workshop with a real Victorian teacher, learnt about some real people who lived back in the Victorian times and all about their lives. We had time to look around the museum at all the other medical artifacts and especially enjoyed walking through 'Disease Street'. 

In Science, we have been looking at the different types and functions of our teeth. We carried out an experiment to test what different liquids did to the shell of an egg. The shell of an egg is made of a material very similar to our teeth. We placed 6 eggs into 6 different liquids (Coca Cola, Coke Zero, Milk, Orange Juice, Vinegar and Water) and left them for a week. After a week, we took the eggs out of the liquid to see the effects.

Pictures of our experiment are below:

Year 4 had a great day on Tuesday at the Leeds City Museum. They learnt loads about Ancient Egypt and had the chance to see a REAL MUMMY! Pictures below.

Year 4 had fun today in Science. We re-created the Human Digestive System which resulted in the creation of poo! Ew! See pictures below:
