3G have been making clay houses!
First, we drew a Victorian house near the school. After that, we carefully recreated it using clay!
Today, we read the story ‘Leaf Man’ by Lois Ehlert before going on our Autumn Walk to Ladywell Park. We looked carefully for different signs of the season. We saw squirrels, a robin and we collected leaves, sticks and conkers!
Can you remember the different signs of Autumn?
Winnie the Witch wrote to us for a second time, because Wilbur had spilled over all her potions and she needed our help to make some more!
We mixed a teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda with half a jar of water. We then added a little powder paint to give our potion some colour. After that, we added a little squirt of washing up liquid and then poured in vinegar. We were so surprised and excited by our exploding potions!!!
We finished by labelling our potions. Alex made ‘Jungle potion’ and he said that anyone who drunk it would turn into a tiger! Inaya made ‘Mermaid potion’ because she wanted to be a mermaid.
Our finished potions, ready for Winnie to collect!
The Year 4s have had a brilliant half term with the hockey coach, and we’ve had some really exciting games.
If any children are interested in joining the Honor Oak Panthers hockey club, here’s a link to their website https://honoroakpanthershc.com/. More flyers will be coming in after half term for anyone else who is interested.
Have a lovely half term Year 4!!
