Year 4 Making Bath Bombs!

In our last science lesson, we made our own colourful, fragrant and fantastic bath bombs! We used a range of ingredients and we had to do some careful measuring and mixing, before scooping the mixtures into the moulds.


After the bath bombs had set, we dropped them into a nice bath! Take a look at what happened next!

Year 4- Science Lesson: Exploring flowering and non-flowering plants!

This term we have been looking at the unit Environment, Ecology and Evolution. The children are learning about living things and exploring how plants reproduce. Today, we enjoyed a practical lesson in Year 4 where we made playdough bees and ‘pollinated’ apple blossom flowers. The children were extremely enthused throughout the lesson, and we are going to video the process in next week’s lesson. Watch this space! Miss O’ Sullivan.

Crosby Hall Day 1

We have had the best day! When the children arrived they had to make their own beds and unpack. For lunch we had soup and sandwiches, and a fruit platter for afters. After this, we spent some time on the adventure course – this was amazing – so much fun and a great challenge. We were exhausted so we had a little break, squash and a biscuit before continuing the fun. Half of us went to a pottery class, the rest of had a swap to cross! We’ve just had our tea, spaghetti bolognese and garlic bread, followed by syrup sponge and custard!

The standard was so high again; the talent in this school is truly incredible! We had singing, dancing, piano playing, comedy and even magic!

Maths Olympics in Year 4

This morning, Year 4 held the first ever Maths Olympics! We split into different teams to represent countries from around the world, just like at the Olympics, and then competed to see who could solve the most maths problems on our obstacle course! Our teams had to work together, use lots of mathematical language and know lots about analogue and digital time, including 24 time, to complete the challenges as fast as possible!

Science Afternoon at St Michael’s

I must say, these children make me so proud, without fail, every time I take them out. Their behaviour and manners are impeccable. It was great to see you learning and exploring classification and adaptations too! Thank you Year 3 and Year 4. Mrs Davies
