Martial Arts Taster Session

Martial Arts Taster Session

Year 4 were very lucky this week to have an instructor from Premier Martial Arts in Leeds come in for the day and give us all a quick demonstration and teach us some moves. We have all now achieved half of the qualification needed to achieve a white belt and a letter has been sent home which explains how we can take it further. We all loved our session, especially the children in our class who already attend classes at PMA. Have a look at the photos below:

The Daily Mile

Year4 Year4 (Year4) on: Year 4's Class Blog

The Daily Mile

In Year 4, we take part in The Daily Mile everyday, come rain or shine. It aims to improve our physical, social, emotional and mental health and well being. For 15 minutes each day, we run, jog or walk around the sports pitch after lunch and then head down into the classroom much more ready to learn. To try and encourage us to push and challenge ourselves, a Daily Mile Champion is chosen each day. Not only do they get to wear a medal the next day when taking part but they get to have a 'Silly Selfie' taken to be put on our class display. Take a look at some of them below:

 

Mr. Newton was even awarded it once...

The Incredible Journey of Food

Year4 Year4 (Year4) on: Year 4's Class Blog

The Human Digestive System

Our Science topic this half-term is Animals including Humans.

As such, we have been finding out about the different parts of the human digestive system and their functions. Our first task was to try and identify then label the different parts on each other using stickers.

    

In our next lesson, we recreated the journey food goes on through our bodies using a range of everyday items. Freezer bags became mouths and stomachs, orange juice became digestive acids and tights became small intestines. As you can see from the pictures below, it was pretty gross but also very memorable and we had to be able to explain what each part was doing to the food as it passed through.

Finally, we wrote some brilliant scientific explanations of what happens to food in different parts of the digestive system. Check out a couple of them below:

Armley Mills WWII Visit

Year4 Year4 (Year4) on: Year 4's Class Blog

ARMLEY MILLS WWII VISIT

We had a fantastic day travelling back in time to the 1940s and seeing what life was really like for evacuee children during World War II.

Once we arrived, we were sorted into two separate lines; one for boys and one for girls. We were then given our gas masks that were our responsibility and had to be kept with us at all times. We were then taken down to an authentic 1940s cinema and watched some propaganda clips full of information about the build up to World War II.

 

Next, we were led into a 1940s classroom by our new teacher Mrs. Green and had to sit at individual desks. We spent the morning completing our identity tags, making a list of what we needed to pack as well as practising how to put on our gas masks. We even had an air raid drill and had to sing songs under our desks to keep our spirits up.

 

 

After a quick lunch we spent the afternoon in a 1940s living room and experienced what the war was like for people on the home front. We learned all about rationing, digging for victory and how people protected themselves from any air raids. Our host even let us do some of her washing...how kind!

We finished off our visit by going back into the cinema and watching some more short films about life in Britain during World War II. It really was a fantastic experience for us all and has really inspired us to find more about what life was like for people in Britain during World War II.

Year 4 looks into a Wardrobe...

Narnia in the Classroom

During our English lessons this half-term, we will be using C.S. Lewis's book The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe to inspire our writing.

Almost unbelievably, a mysterious portal appeared in our classroom and we were able to enter the magical world of Narnia, snowy trees and all. Take a look at the pictures below to see what it looked like:
