We all enjoyed some Christmas crafts whilst listening to classic Christmas tunes.
We all had a go at pond dipping. We disturbed the riverbed to release invertebrates then captured a sample of the water so that we could make observations of any living organisms. We then used the scale to determine how fresh and unpolluted the water in the River Ehen is.

Year 4 enjoyed handling Anglo-Saxon artefacts, making observations to enrich their learning.

We had lots of fun climbing, sliding and running.
Year 4 are really enjoying developing the skills needed for cricket. They particularly enjoyed using their news skills to gain points in the game.
