This year, Year 4, have had an amazing year full of trips, investigations and exciting new learning. We began the year with science experiments where we looked at how electricity is conducted. We looked at a variety of animals and how we should look after them when the Creepy Crawly Road Show came in. We even had the chance to hold a snake and other exciting animals. We were honoured to be selected to take part in a parade to celebrate 250 years of the Circus we have in Blackpool. We walked along the promenade where we then watched the skills of the circus performers. This year we have demonstrated that we are hard working, resilient and can work as part of a team. We showed this when we built dens in our outside area as part of our topic in Geography. We’ve had a fantastic time in Year 4 and Miss Cowgill and Mrs Fielding would like to thank the children for an outstanding year. We know that the children will have an equally amazing time in Year 5 and we can’t wait to hear about their future achievements.
Take a look at some of our learning experiences from 2016/17.
Our year started with a visit to Blackpool Zoo. We had a fantastic time and learned lots of facts about animals and their habitats. Nitro Neil from Mad Science visited us in November to introduce our topic, Shock Horror. We had a great day learning about electricity and circuits and even got to use a van der graaf generator! We were also lucky enough to be invited to Blackpool Aspire Academy to make our own light up Christmas cards in their science labs.
Throughout the year we have worked with Fit 2 Go from Blackpool Football Club. They taught us how to have a healthy lifestyle and the benefits of regular exercise. Learning about maps took us to Stanley Park to carry out field work where we had to use maps and compasses to navigate around the park without getting lost!
Most recently we visited Lancashire Science Festival at the University of Central Lancashire. We had a great time learning about food resources, sound and how Disney films are animated.
We have had a great time in Year 4 and can't wait to see what learning experiences await us in Year 5.
