The local vicar from Holy Trinity Church came to visit Year 4 to discuss his beliefs and what a day in the life of a church leader looks like. The children were able to ask lots of interesting questions.
In our English lessons, we have been using our new English scheme called 'The Write Stuff' and we have been asking the question
'Should Social Media be banned for under 13s?'

Today, we had a letter from an electrician who asked the children to design and build a burglar alarm that could be used in people’s houses. They used their background knowledge of circuits and conductors/insulators to produce these, and even incorporated their own foil switch. The children really enjoyed creating their burglar alarms. Surprisingly, they tested them on our classroom doors!
Furthermore, some children created a clown toy with a light-up nose and spinning bow-tie. These were made by making a circuit, using bulbs for the light-up nose and motors to enable the bow-tie to spin. The children were especially interested when seeing the spinning bow-tie. They could not wait to design and colour the clown's face.
