Midlands Air Ambulance
Today Year 4 had the fantastic opportunity to meet and listen to people from the Midlands Air Ambulance. The children were also allowed to climb into a POD of an air ambulance to see what it would be like to try to rescue people in need.
Mammals, Birds, Reptiles, Amphibians and Fish
In our Science lessons we have been looking at how we classify different living things. As a starting point the children had to work out how they would group different living things based on the headings Mammals, Birds, Reptiles, Amphibians and Fish.
This term our topic is ‘Marvellous Mysteries’ please feel free to take a look at our topic overview by clicking on the link below.
Due to the fantastic pieces of homework created by children at Colwich, the whole school got a chance to see what each class produced in their Autumn term homework. Children in Year 4 demonstrated brilliant artistic skills, research talents and lovely handwriting abilities. Some children in Year 4 also produced these magnificent musical instruments.
In our Science lessons we have been exploring electricity. We have been looking at different ways of creating electricity and which everyday objects rely on either mains or battery electricity to work.
Design and Technology
In our DT lessons, Year 4 have been using our cutting and sewing skills to make these fantastic reindeer hand puppets!
As part of our Science lessons we created our own water systems using a plastic cup, soil, water and cress seeds.
In our Geography lessons we have been learning about the different countries in Europe. By using an atlas to find out the names and locations of various countries, we stuck Europe back together as best as we could. How did we do?
