Year 4 - Osprey - World culture week
Ospreys were introduced to African Drumming during World Culture week!
Year 4 - Osprey - Battery power
Ospreys set out to investigate if a lemon could be used as a battery in a circuit. We found that using a galvanised nail and a copper penny would act like the two ends of a battery to produce an electrical current. Unfortunately, this time we didn't manage to light up the bulb!
Year 4 - Osprey - Police Visit
Ospreys had a visitor from a local Police Community Support Officer (PCSO) as part of British values week, to discuss their role in the area and to answer any questions. We discussed a lot around laws and the children found out how they can keep safe. "The police officer told us all the different ways they can keep us safe and the different numbers we could tell our parents if there was any trouble" Ceejay.
Year 4 - Owls - Forest School Faces
Owl class had a fantastic time on Thursday afternoon when we went to the forest to create our own Boggarts. The children collected different things from the forest area to use on their clay faces. Not only did they make some amazing creations, they also worked with the children from nursery. It was amazing watching them help, support and encourage the younger children.
Year 4 - Owls - Reading with Cygnets
On Friday, Owl class went to read with Cygnets in EYFS. The children loved having the opportunity to read with the younger children and they did an amazing job supporting Cygnets when words became more challenging.
Year 4 - Osprey - Digestive System
Osprey class acted out each section of the digestive system. Firstly, they crushed up bread, banana and water in the stomach then passed it through some tights that acted as the intestines. Eventually, the mushed up food was passed out through a small hole in a cup.
Owl class had a fantastic cricket session led by Rachael from YCC. We began by practising our throwing and catching skills, which we then used in an exciting game. During the game, each side took turns at batting and fielding, but we had to work as a team showing sportsmanship and resilience.
Year 4 - Owl - Yorkshire Wildlife Park
Despite the cold and snow, Owl class had a fantastic day at Yorkshire Wildlife Park. Throughout the day, we had the opportunity to see some amazing animals, learnt lots of fascinating facts and had the opportunity to hold some interesting creatures. Some of our favourite animals were the giraffes, lions, wallabys, tigers and polar bears.
Owl class have taken part in two Boxing sessions led by Mr Harrison from Premier Sports. We learnt some of the different techniques including the hook, cross, uppercut and duck. The children had a fantastic time and joined in with real enthusiasm.
Year 4 - Owl - Pedestrian Training
Owl class have taken part in pedestrian training, during the sessions the children thought about the dangers of the road and how to keep safe. The children had the opportunity to cross different roads after identifying hazards and steps to ensure a safe crossing.
