Oak class go virtual…

On Wednesday, Oak class we’re lucky enough to have the chance to experience virtual reality headsets. As a class we travelled to Ancient Greece, Ancient Rome, the Great Wall of China and Paris. It was very exciting, particularly finding ourselves in the middle of a gladiator fight!

Groovy Greeks

Today, Year 4 have experienced life as an Ancient Greek. They designed and made mosaics, carved vases, tasted Greek foods, made a laurel leaf headpiece and competed in the Tanners Wood Olympics. The children also cemented their understanding of the Trojan War and carved their own vases. Some fantastic Greek learning and a lot of fun too….

Year 4 Science in the Sun

Year 4 Oak class took advantage of the glorious weather and investigated the process of digestion in the sunshine this week. We used sandwich bags, tights and plastic cups to mimic parts of the body and help us understand the process of digestion inside our bodies. It was fairly messy and involved producing waste from a plastic cup. As you can imagine, the children loved it!
