It was really fun in The Horniman Museum. The whole class sketched live fish, frogs, jellyfish and sea horses. We sat on the floor to look at the animals really carefully and sketched them out with pencil. There were lots of detail and it was really hard to get them right. We also sketched other marine life, I sketched a walrus.
It was FUN
On Wednesday, year 4 paid a visit to the magnificent Southwark Cathedral, the children all had a brilliant time and learnt lots of interesting new information about monastic life in the Tudor times.
Having a go at manuscript writing.

This week we have been learning all about blogging so that we can take over the class blogs and share all about our learning.
So what is blogging? Watch this video to understand what we are going to do and why.
But how do we do it? Mr Foster has been in and helped us learn how to blog but this video will help us if we forget the basics.

Do you remember what the crocodile asked when we did our treasure hunt? “How does water become solid?” To make it more interesting, we used orange juice to investigate.
1. We poured the orange juice into containers.
2. We put the filled-up containers in the freezer.
We predicted what would happen next.
“It will turn cold.”
“It will be all freezing.”
“It’ll go hard.”
“It might be icy.”
“It might taste like lemons.”
“It will all stick together.”
3. After a few days, we removed the containers. Our orange juice had frozen solid to become delicious ice lollies!
We went outside to celebrate with an ice lolly party!
