This half term year 4 are reading the wind in the willows and learning about habitats. This meant that we went on a bug hunt on Friday to discover more about the micro habitats found in the outdoor classroom. We also made our own dandelion and lime tea, something we're quite sure Mr Toad and Ratty would enjoy!

After a great uptake of the screen free week a couple of weeks ago, the children from Newton really enjoyed their reward of an afternoon outdoors! We made hot chocolate, s'mores and dens. The children worked amazingly well as a team to build their den and problem solve. We also did bug hunting and enjoyed digging to find worms. Thank you to all children and adults who took part in the screen free week.

As part of our topic, "would you like to live in a house made of chocolate?", Newton class made chocolate houses, ready for our viewing of Charlie and the chocolate factory! A great job by all teams!

A happy pancake day was had by all in Newton! We learned all about Shrove Tuesday and why we have pancakes, before decorating and eating our own!

Our year 4 showcase! The children worked so hard on their showcase and made their teachers, LSAs and parents very proud! Newton performed Bob Marley's 'Judge not' and 'Three little birds'. A great way to end a fabulous half term!

Happy Chinese new year to all! We learnt all about China and it's traditions yesterday. We also made Chinese hats, dragons and masks in order to join in with the celebrations! 中国农历新年快乐

Pineapple fool making. This week Newton have been learning about Jamaican food and what Bob Marley liked to eat. We decided to leave the seaweed out of them but left many of the ingredients the same as one of Bob's favourite desserts. The overall verdict was positive, if you like pineapple!

Newton have started this new term looking at sound in science. We made our our instruments out of straws and looked at how sound was made. The children found that they could feel the vibrations on their throats when speaking.

A great afternoon was had by all when Newton's parents came in to help with decorating the children's shields. Great teamwork and fabulous shields!

Newton class enjoyed a roman workshop last week. We made roman sandals, roads and honey biscuits. The class also designed their own roman money and learned some Latin! There were some fabulous designs and great factual discoveries made.

Our new topic has seen us exploring Roman artifacts. The children got to choose different artifacts from our mystery case and explore what they thought each item could've been used for. Newton were fabulous archaeologists!

On Friday Newton were learning about the difference between how the rich and the poor lived in Tudor times. We found that life was quite different!

This week we have made the digestive system in science. We have learnt about how food travels through the body.

We have been looking at Tudor foods this week in Newton class and so designed our own March pane centerpieces, a favourite of Elizabeth I's, in class. Lots of fabulous designs!

Newton class spent the afternoon studying as Tudor children. Some children were sewing, kneading dough for bread and cleaning, learning from their female mistress, whilst others learnt Latin from their school master. Our sewing and Latin may need a little more work but the children's presentations were fantastic!
