Year 3 and 4 Author Visit
Years 3 and 4 have been busy ticking of parts of their Bidbury University this term!
Both year groups were lucky enough to have Elle English, a local author, come and visit. She told them all about her book 'California' and even helped them to write their own adventure story. They were amazing!
It was lovely to hear all about her travels and how she became a self-published author. Some of the children even bought one of her books.
Playing Pooh Sticks!
As part of our Bidbury University, Year 4 went to a local stream to play Pooh sticks. Despite the wet weather, both classes had an excellent time throwing and watching their sticks float under the bridge. They then discussed how they might dam the stream if we were to head back there another day!
On y va! (All aboard!)
In French, we have been learning all about different types of transport and weather.
Today we took turns to ask what the weather was like on the map of France and then our partner answered using the French we had learned.
Both Year 4 classes did an amazing job!
Artist in Residence
While watching Newsround today, Henley very kindly offered to do his own summary drawing of the headlines (just like Mr Devine!). Birch class thought it was excellent and we loved his drawing of a whale!
Well done Henley!
This morning, Bidbury Junior School were lucky enough to have visitors in for a careers fair. Year 4 loved taking part in finding out all about different types of careers and the skills needed for each job. They asked questions to each employer and had a go at different activities on each stand. The children loved this experience and some have lots of new and exciting ideas on what they would like to be when they are older.
Conductors, insulators and switches!
This week we have been investigating what conductors and insulators are. We predicted whether different materials would allow electricity to flow around the circuit and then tested to see if we were right!
We also created our own switches and used them on the circuits!
In science we have been learning all about electricity! From where it comes from to how to build a circuit! Both Birch and Horse Chestnut class have had lots of fun and are looking forward to learning about switches, conductors and insulators in our next few lessons.
Welcome to Year 4!
The Year 4 team would like to say a big hello to all the children and parents this year. The children have settled into Year 4 life well and are trying hard to show all the values.
Keep an eye out on our page for some AMAZING work!
We are looking forward to a great year ahead!
