On Thursday Year 4 went to Chester Zoo and we went to see the animals. We went into a classroom and a man called Mark told us about all the animals that we were going to see. A few seconds later, we went to the sloths area and a sloth fell out of the cage. It was slipping on the glass. It fell right by Heather and my feet. Then, we went to see the penguins, they looked like they were having a race. Then we went to the bat cave and a bat hit Keean in the face with it’s wings.

On the 16th of May, Year 4 went to the museum. The first room we went into was on level 2. There were stuffed animals like owls, birds, a rhinoseerous bird, hedgehogs, mice, rats, foxes, snakes, a scaly tourtous, and a scaly fish. We had a talk from a man who told us about classifying animals. It was interesting and we saw a pickled snake! Then, we to level 3 to look at the bug area. There where coakroches, terachulars and millions of red ants climbing up a rope with peaces of an apple. It was really wierd because we learned that butterflies don’t have a backbone – animals that don’t have a backbone are called invertibrates. Then, we went into the aquerium, there were lots of colourful fish and crabs and lobsters. It was a fun time at the museum, after reading our blog would you like to go?

In Year 4 we have been making lego animals. We have be using lego education which is a programme on the computer. Some children have been going out in groups with Miss Jones. CJ found making the lego lion frustrating because he tried to do it twice, but it kept breaking. Eventually, CJ had to start all over again to build his lion. We all found it frustrating but in the end we all helped each other and built them. We liked building our lions and next we are going to programme them to move and make noises.

Today me, Thomas and Ben went in the willow spider with Miss Jones. We collected different flowers, twigs and interesting stones and made patterns on the floor in the spider. While we were collecting twigs, we saw some insects and different creatures. I saw a baby scorpion!
Next week, we are going to look through the microscope at different mini-beasts – hopefully, we’ll see the baby scorpian again!!!

On Arabic day Mrs. Bashammakh came and helped us write our names in Arabic. It was hard writing our names because some people didn’t know how to write it. Only one person knew how to write their name in Arabic. The rest went to Mrs Bashammakh to help them. In the afternoon we got to taste Arabic food and we used our Arabic names to make our art work.

Last Wednesday Movema came in and showed us how to do African dance. We had so much fun. It made eveyone tired in the hall. It was the funniest thing we have ever done. It was so hot in the hall. We were all having a laugh. At the end we all danced our way out of the hall. We were not so tierd after we sat down. We said a big thank you to Movema. We really enjoyed ourselves.
