In science this week we have been learning about magnets. The pupils found that only iron and steel seemed to be attracted to magnets. Other metals like aluminium are not magnetic. We investigated how the ends of magnets behave – the pupils found out that magnets have two ends, north and south. North repels north and south repels south. But north and south are attracted to each other. We listened to this crazy science song:

The pupils built some amazing structure that hung one magnet upon another magnet. They made sure that the magnets were repelling. This made the magnet on the string swing around in an amazing way.

Celebrating the Queen’s 90th Birthday!

This week we have been celebrating Queen Elizabeth II 90th birthday. We created pop-up books inspired by her majesty and had a fantastic garden party!


First, we explored different pop up books and shared our likes and dislikes.

Next, we looked closely at how each pop-up worked and explored making our own prototypes. This helped us practice and learn from mistakes.


We thought carefully about our designs and how to create our pages.

In the afternoon, we enjoyed a garden party, sang happy birthday to the Queen and enjoyed cucumber sandwiches and birthday cake.

Rock and Rapid residential!

Published by under adventure and tagged: , ,

This week year 3/4 have enjoyed an exciting residential at Rock and Rapid.

We were welcomed by our instructors then were introduced to our bunk house and started our first activity – team building games!


After this our next activity was the balcony jump and bouldering!



The bouldering caves had big soft mats so we could climb without a harness!



We got butterflies in our tummies when we jumped off the balcony but it was super fun and we wanted to do it over and over again!





We enjoyed a BBQ for dinner then we needed to work in our teams to create a team name, colour, logo and chant or song. We presented these in our groups which was great fun!


After that we enjoyed a hot chocolate before bed.



On the next day, we got up early and enjoyed a breakfast before our next activities – abseiling and the climbing wall!





We learnt about the importance of being safe and how to use the equipment correctly.





After lunch we were presented with super certificates! We also took photos in our groups with our instructors.



The children will be blogging about our great residential which will be fantastic to read! Keep checking the blog for this.

We have been learning about measure in maths this week.

Using different equipment such as tape measures, metre sticks and rulers, we measured different parts of the playground.


Then we recorded the measurements and converted them into metres, centimetres or millimetres.


We needed to use our knowledge of place value to help us do this.
