Year 4 had great fun tie dying fabric ready for sewing next week. We had to leave the fabric to dry overnight before we could unwrap it to see our results.
Year 4 spent NSPCC Number Day exploring patterns in multiplication tables. We measured all sorts of objects, converted between m, cm and mm and then worked out how long 3, 5, or 8 of that object would be. We also enjoyed playing timestables games on the computers and investigating patterns made by the digital roots of tables. All of this amazing maths, whilst wearing numbers and raising money for the NSPCC.
Year 4 led our Liturgy for Christian Unity and were pleased to welcome family, friends and governors as well as parishioners from several different churches to celebrate with us.

Laudato Si - Recycled Paper
Year 4 have been listening to Pope Francis' message in his letter Laudato Si (Our Common Home). We have been thinking about how we can use the world's resources more wisely and have been coming up with ways of saving paper in school. We even made our own recycled paper, using paper that would otherwise have been thrown away.
Year 4 enjoyed a fantastic day at Paigton Zoo. We started the day with a great workshop all about rainforests and then explored the rest of the zoo. We were lucky to see lots of incredible animals close up.
