Den Building: The children had a great time working together to construct and build a den that would be secure and waterproof. They also had to filter dirty water and toast marshmallows. Yummy!
The children used natural materials including twigs, leaves, stones and feathers to create pictures of the Stone Age environment.
The children enjoyed making Beaker style Bronze Age pots from clay.
The children enjoyed using the watercolour paints to complete the Iron Age picture.
The children used the iPads to create a flow diagram using the  PureFlow app. They had to create an algorithm- a set of instructions- to describe their day from getting up to arriving at school.
The children designed and made a 'Moving Monster' using two syringes, tubing, a burger box and craft materials.
Food Technology: The children had a great time with Mrs Rotherham and her team of helpers. The children took part in a 'Cookathon'. The children all worked together to prepare a Chicken Biryani. They were able to taste their dish. Yummy!! I can honestly say it was delicious and had 2 helpings!!!!!

RELIGIOUS EDUCATION: COME AND SEE: LISTENING AND SHARING TOPIC

The children had a great time changing the classroom into a gathering for a church. The children listened carefully to readings and psalms from the Bible. They also sang The Gloria

using the hymn books to help them.

PHYSICAL EDUCATION

The children had a great time working together in their groups to design an equipment layout using mats, benches, cones, hoops and small jumps. Every group designed a different layout. They all had a great time moving on the equipment in different ways.

Photography: The children had a brilliant time learning how to use camera and then  go around the school to take photos of the children working in class. 
Making Mountains: The children had a great time making mountains using pizza bases,newspapers and masking tape. They worked in pairs to create their mountains which were then covered in Mod Roc, ready to be painted next week.
LOGGERHEADS: What a grand day out for all of year 3 and 4! The day started with rain and ended with sunshine! The children enjoying exploring the forest and walking to the Devil's Gorge. This was followed by lunch and then another walk to the cliff top which overlooks Moel Famau. The children had a delicious ice cream and came home with a souvenir. Enjoy looking at the photos!
