All the Year 4 children took part in the D&T day today. The children were carefully and accurately using rulers, saws and glue to make their Leisure Centre prototypes.
Before they made the prototype itself, they improved their sawing and re-enforcing skills by taking one piece of wood, cutting it, then rejoining it at a right angle.
The children made human digestive system models today. They used various items to represent parts of the system:
They had a great time exploring this part of human body in such an interactive way.
Year Four were visited by Cemex today. They came to teach the children about road and cycle safety - especially around HGVs.
Amongst other things, the children learnt about "Stop & Think". This reminds them to find a safe place to cross a road so that they can see - and be seen by - vehicles on the road.
Each child was kindly given: a high-vis jacket, a trouser guard, a ruler, a rubber, a pencil and activity book.
The Year four children, who are not on the Youlbury residential, made pizza this week. They enjoyed using interesting ingredients and developing their cooking skills. They made the dough from scratch and chopped the ingredients of their choice. We then enjoyed a picnic on the field in the afternoon where we discussed where the different ingredients had come from and how they are produced.
The Year Four children enjoyed walking to St Catherine's Church to explore a Christian place of worship. They learnt many things about what Christians believe and they also got a chance to sketch the different things that they could see inside the church.
When they got back to school, the children discussed the similarities and differences of different religions and compared the visit to the church to their own experiences.
