Year 4: Hazel


Extreme Survival Sleepover - Years 3 and 4 took part in an Extreme Sleepover. This included an army assault course, preparing camouflage, singing round the campfire and a ‘midnight’ adventure walk. Children helped to prepare their food and even tried eating crickets! 

As part of our physical geography we looked: climate zones, biomes and vegetation belts, rivers, mountains and volcanoes and earthquakes. As a homework project some students made model volcanos, some of which had live eruptions.

Virtual Reality Workshop -  Years 3 and 4 enjoyed a virtual reality workshop this week. They became intrepid explorers, climbing Mount Everest. Starting at the bottom of the mountain, the children ‘climbed’ to the first base and second base camp where they saw how the camps were set up with tents and equipment. They made it to the peak, where they witnessed the sad sight of all the rubbish left there by visitors. After completing a quiz, some of the children were treated to a virtual encounter in the ocean or with a lion on the savannah!

Mr Schaeffer visited Years 3 and 4 to share his love of music. He brought all 12 of his brass instruments to school along with Mr Harder, who shared his flute, viola and electric bass guitar. Both classes listened to all the instruments being played and had an opportunity to see them up close. Everyone even had a chance to play the electric guitar – definitely a few budding rockstars in our midst!

Science Week

This term each class took part in Science Week, focussing on a range of skills to help them 'be a scientist'. These included:

  • Observing 
  • Identifying and discussing patterns 
  • Grouping, identifying and classifying 
  • Research and presenting.

We have also made a video of some of the scientific activities that took place outdoors at Forest School. Please check out the Forest School tab to see more.
