Year 4 Rooks

The children had plenty of fun during our TASC day, making pita bread in keeping with our Ancient Greek topic. We were fortunate to have a visit from a miller which enabled the children learn about the process of making bread, how the wheat is separated from the chaff and ground into flour. We then looked at a recipe, measured out the ingredients which included flour and followed instructions to make our own pita bread. The best part was sampling the bread with some Greek accompaniments of hummus and tzatziki. Yummy!

 

Here is the link in case you want to have a go making pitta bread at home.

We loved to see each other's home learning around the topic "A Day in the Life of an Ancient Greek".  4Rooks clearly demonstrated the Springfield Value "We are motivated to achieve our best!"

We set up and conducted a fair test investigating the affects that drinks have on our teeth.  The egg shell represented the enamel of our teeth and we were shocked to see the results!

We had a special assembly to learn about road safety and the challenges HGV drivers have when driving. Later in the day, we had the opportunity to sit in the driver's seat of an HGV. We now understand how long it takes large vehicles to stop.

Using mirrors, we looked at our teeth and learnt all about the different types of teeth children and adult humans have.  Using this knowledge, we made models to show the different types of teeth a child has!  We also learnt about animals' teeth too.  Did you know that sharks can have 20,000 teeth in their lifetime?!

We have been learning all about Ancient Greece and how it has influenced our lives today, one of the legacies left by the Ancient Greeks is The Olympic Games.  The children enjoyed acting out Ancient Greek Olympic sports for their table to guess.

We had great fun learning about and carrying out some hands on investigations about the digestive system. You can see in the photos how much the children enjoyed replicating the intestines using tights and turning weetabix into poo!
