Friction in Science
We have been looking at FRICTION in Science and Daniel Cosgrove Brought in his bike! It was really exiting. We looked at the friction of a bike and how it was good to be smooth or rough. It was great fun and everybody loved it! Last week we measured a shoe that was really fun as well (although it doesn’t sound like much fun!!).
Science Fun by Junior Reporter Danish Rajkumar, Y4F.
We drew around our friends for science and we cut them out and then we drew all the bones, joints and internal organs including the brain. One week later, we watched a video about Hydro, Exo and Endo skeletons. We watched a picture and it was a worm and everybody said “That’s disgusting!!” The worm had a hydro skeleton!

A big congratulations to the winners of last nights quiz and Easter bingo!
A good nights sleep had by all and a delicious breakfast served before the task of packing up and bringing their bags down stairs. Most have denied owning the collection of wet socks found in various rooms but they have all managed to close their cases which is promising. Off to take part in their last activities then back here for packed lunch, to say thank you and goodbye for another year. It’s been a great trip and all the staff are very proud of all the boys. Their behaviour has been excellent and their achievements vast. Thank you to all the parents for your efforts in organising them, see you back at school at 3pm for collection.

Mrs Bonfante’s group are up and ready for the day ahead! After an early start, a cooked breakfast was delicious and welcomed by all. It was then time for a tidy of the rooms and quick room inspection. Look how tidy they can keep their rooms mums! The weather looks promising and it’s now time to gather belongings for this mornings activities; Mrs Wynne and her group are off on the lake for a spot of canoeing.
Mrs Wynne’s group all back safe and sound on dry land. What a lovely way to spend the morning messing about on the river. Smiles all around as you can see. Time for lunch now.
Team building for Mrs Wynne’s group after a lovely lunch and free time. The boys are having fun trying to get all team mates through an elastic band as quickly as possible. Some were more flexible than others!

We’ve arrived!!! The sun is shining in the Lake District.
Mrs Bonfante’s group took part in some team building activities which were led by our instructor, James. The boys then experienced gorge walking! It was challenging but great fun! Straight into the first activity; rock climbing for group two with Mrs Wynne. First activity completed, all had fun and are now very hungry and tired. Many hope it’s chips for tea, we will have to wait and see! Exciting night ahead!
Tea was delicious all having a tidy of their rooms and then team quiz. Joshua’s birthday was celebrated in style with the most delicious chocolate brownie yum yum

Recently Year 4 have had the opportunity to take part in the Mummification process. Using the instructions they wrote in small groups they used mod rock to carry out this delicate process. Luckily it didn’t take them 70 days but they did develop their knowledge of the stages and the use of canopic jars. Through role play they are now aware that special priests worked as embalmers, treating and wrapping the body and recognise the reasons why mummification was such an important process in Ancient Egyptian times.

Junior Reporter, Adam Blagborough, has written a weblog for Year 4.
This week we’ve been learning about muscles in science. We learnt about how muscles contract.
Also in our house assembly we have decided who are going to be the important captains. These always go to year sixes mainly because they will soon go to the senior school.
As you go up the school you will find that there are more responsibilities and jobs for you to do.

Great excitement in Year 4 History as the boys are investigating the world of archaelogy. They are planning to create an excavation – and then dig it up in 8 weeks time – as they are looking at how we know so much about things from such a long time ago. Egyptians has never been such fun!
In Science, they have been contuing to look at the human skeleton, this time making one out of Bonios. I can’t wait to see the results!
Science in Year Four
This week Year Four have been investigating the human skeleton and its functions. They were given the opportunity to create a skeleton of their own out of some very unusual materials. As you can see in the photographs a great time was had by all and most groups were able to identify and illustrate the main bones found in a human skeleton.
