This project has a science focus and teaches children about the human body including significant organs such as the heart, brain and lungs. At the heart of this project children write explanations to describe biological processes of the human body and develop additional skills using a range of technical and scientific language.
In this project the children will learn:
• About the heart, circulation, the pulse and blood;
• About major organs of the human body and their functions in keeping us alive and well;
• How exercise and a healthy diet keeps the body well and fit;
• How to write explanation texts using scientific language;
• How scientific and medical research has changed over time;
• How to work collaboratively.
Mapping out the Human Body....
We created skeleton pictures using different shaped pasta.
Over the next few weeks we are going to become personal trainers! We are going to learn about nutrition, diet, muscles, bones, joints and movement and then use this knowledge to help some 'real' clients.
We thoroughly enjoyed our trip to Cardiff City Football Stadium. Our visit included a guided tour of the stadium, a workshop on 'Team-building' and an afternoon of activities in the 'House of Sport'.
In Art, we experimented with silhouettes and created portraits of ourselves and sunset scenes from our class book 'The Iron Man'.
Christmas in Year 3/4
We've been very busy preparing for Christmas by making Christmas cards, cardboard tube reindeer and Santa/Elf washing lines. Our sewing task this year was to design and make a felt Gingerbread Man.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!
This project has a food design and technology focus and teaches children about different food types from around the World, fair trade and the importance of eating a healthy diet for well being. At the heart of this project children will learn how to write formal and informal letters and develop additional skills in writing to advertise and inform.
During our topic on Fairtrade, we followed the journey of a banana from tree to shop and also researched the Aztec culture linked to chocolate. We then put these ingredients together and baked delicious Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins.
We designed and made 3D models of healthy meals.
Many thanks to Mrs Neuddegg for her talk on Canada, the homemade pancakes and maple syrup we delicious! Also a big thank you to Mrs Nelson for her talk on French cuisine, the pastries were superb!!
We made Roman shields using card and gold paper then put them to the test and went outside to re-enact Roman battle formations.
To end our topic, Mrs Samantha Hayes from DOVE LOVE ceramics came into school and delivered a one-day workshop. This exciting workshop included:
- Exploring pottery techniques used in Roman Times
- Modelling, etching and glazing a coil pot/dish
