Some of the amazing Year Four home learning challenge projects. The children had to pick an area of history and present their research.

Friday 7th December

After learning about a range of Victorian inventions, Year 4 were inspired to power their own electric light bulb using lemons! We found that the lemons weren’t able to power a bulb by themselves, although when we put them altogether in to a circuit, they created a very dim light.

#LEIGHIDEAS2018 with Year 4 and 5

Wednesday 7th November

To start our ‘Journey Through Time’ learning journey, our first mini topic is the Ancient Egyptians. We have looked at farming methods and irrigation techniques. A Shaduf is a piece of equipment used to transport water to otherwise dry land. We made our Shadufs in pairs, using wood, hammers, nails, glue guns, string, cable ties, saws and sandpaper. When they were completed, we tested them using the sink to see if they could transport water! We were largely successful!

A balanced argument linked with Year 4’s Learning Journey this term. The teacher is obviously ‘tickled pink’ with Summer’s writing!

Week 4 Summer

19th September 

On Wednesday, Year 4 took part in an exciting cookery workshop where they prepared and cooked vegetable stew and bread twists. They learnt about how to stay safe whilst preparing food, why it is so important to eat a balanced diet, and two different ways of cooking food. They even had a chance to taste their creations!

Some amazing writing from Year 4:



Investigating the digestive system….
