World Book Day
To mark the 19th anniversary of World Book Day, we all came dressed up as our favourite character from a book. In year 4 we made our own book marks. We also had a class discussion to share what our favourite books are and why.
As part of our topic, Allotment, we had a class debate about should we buy bananas that are imported from Costa Rica. this included watching video bout the journey the bananas take to get to our shops in the UK. After this we were split into two groups, one arguing for and the other against. This involved considering many factors such as transportation, air pollution and the bananas being grown artificially.
Heroic Harry Potter Day
As part of Harry Potter Day we all came to school dressed up as our favourite Harry Potter character. Throughout the day we took part in a variety of different activities such as Quiditch, wand making, transfigurations and we also made butter beer and biscuits. we had such a great day and ended it with a children vs teachers Harry Potter quiz – which was won by the children.
We have been learning about the life cycles of plants and animals as part of this terms topic. This has helped us to understand how we survive through life.
