4A display a ‘hunger’ to learn about the digestive system!

This afternoon, 4A were busy learning about the digestive system and it’s components. Firstly, they looked at images of the digestive system and labelled each part. Then they set off to create their own 3D model of a human digestive system to really consolidate what they have learnt. They worked in groups to make different parts which came neatly together as one whole (just like the different parts of the digestive system! Pun intended!) they had a lovely time engaging in this interactive learning task and the outcome was very successful! Well done to 4A Riley!

4a create a spectacular display on their ‘Bonjour Paris’ topic

4a Riley channelled their creative talents when working on their ‘Bonjour Paris’ topic this afternoon. They researched Parisian landmarks and created a 3D map of the River Siene with famous landmarks dotted around it. They created a 3D steam train, an automaton (which is a human robot) and 3d cogs and mechanisms from their focus text ‘ Hugo Cabret’.
The children thoroughly enjoyed themselves and worked together as one effective team to get the display finished and up! Well done 4a Riley, we are proud of your efforts and achievements!

Year 4 step back in time at the Ragged School museum

Yesterday, the year 4 classes Riley and Van Gogh visited the Ragged School Museum in Stepney, as part of their Topic this term on the Victorians. They experienced what it was like to be a pupil in a Victorian classroom and also experienced what it was like to live in a crowded Victorian house. The children enjoyed their visit and learned lots of new facts about Victorian life. Some of the children were shocked at the conditions of the Victorian schools and were relieved that teaching today is much more exciting and less strict than it used to be back in the Victorian period!
