Y4 are inspired to write poetry
Year 4 have taken inspiration from their class text, 'The pebble in my pocket' by Meredith Hooper, and have written a poem about a dragonfly. This then further inspired them to discover more about this wonderfully elusive creature. How fantastic is that?
Y4 River Walk
Towards the end of the term, the year 4 children had an opportunity to put all of their hard work around rivers and the water cycle into practice with a walk along the beautiful Porter Brook. Starting at the source of the river, the children took measurements of the width, depth and speed of the water, as well as looking out for river features. What a beautiful (and educational) walk!
The Water Cycle
Building on our river walk earlier in the term, Y4 have been learning further about 'the water cycle'. Using the innovative 'Now Press Play' system, the children were each taken on a personal journey to find out more about this important natural phenomenon.
Y4 river walk
In Year 4 we have been learning all about features of rivers, so we took the opportunity to do a bit of field work and got out to investigate a river in Sheffield. We started at the source of the Porter Brook, near Ringinglow Road and carefully followed it's progress down towards the Forge Dam. As we went, we performed a number of investigations and spotted a variety of native flora and fauna.
