Year 4 Teacher
We examined different forces such as friction and air resistance. We conducted an experiment building towers from cubes of jelly, this was much hard when the jelly was covered in oil.
We investigated the amount of friction different types of string have by sending balloon rockets along the string and measuring the distance it travelled.
When looking at air resistance we dropped two parachutes, one large and one small from the same height. Every time the smaller parachute hit the ground first as it had less air resistance than the larger one.
Roald Dahl Day
On the 20th of September we took part in Roald Dahl day. We had great fun reading The Enormous Crocodile and dressing up as some of the characters

We planted daffodil bulbs in compost and put them outside. We need to keep watering them so they flower in the spring.
Visits to Falinge Park High School
Along with Year 3 we visited Falinge Park High School, here we got the opportunity to use charcoal to create our own spooky pictures. After this we planned a spooky story, describing the characters and the setting.
Our second visit to Falinge Park High School was a puppet workshop. We started by reading the script of an old story often told through the use of shadow puppets. Later we made some of the Indonesian shadow puppets
Rochdale Pioneers Project Homework Assembly
Just before half term we had our homework assembly for the Rochdale Pioneers Project. We got to show all our great work and say thank you to the people that helped us
Trip to Rochdale Town Hall
As part of our Rochdale Pioneers topic we got the chance to visit Rochdale Town Hall. We went on a tour of the Hall discovering why it was built, when and by who. We got to see the great Hall, stand out on the balcony and sit in the Mayor's Seat, finding out about each Mayor's Coat of Arms
During Easter we enjoyed lots of different activities, such as making Easter baskets and cards, baking corn flake and fairy cakes, which we got to decorate and creating a story book retelling the story of Easter.
We also had an Easter egg hunt which we did around the school following the clue with the help of the Easter Bunny!
The Easter egg parade meant we all decorated an egg or turned them into our favourite characters. Our creations included, One Direction, a bright pink pig, Angry Birds and many more
Our Topic for this term looked at the tiny Caribbean island of St Lucia. We looked at the geography of the island including the physical and man made features. We also studied the type of life style which people have who live there
