Year 4 Blog- including Aquarium trip photos.

Since Easter, Year 4 have on a school trip to Plymouth Aquarium. We took part in a workshop about coral from around the world where we learnt about sea temperature, salinity and ph levels. We also learnt about the dangers to coral and the creatures living in the sea.

At the Aquarium, we saw lots of different marine animals including sharks, sting rays, starfish, eels, octopi, jellyfish, turtles, clown fish, puffer fish, crabs and a range of tropical fish. All of year 4 enjoyed the trip, learnt lots about the sea and would love to go again. It will help us learn more about our Australia topic.

In maths we have been learning about money and have just started our new topic on statistics. In English, we have continued preparing to write an animal story and in science we have started our topic of living things and their habitats.

An exciting scene is when a narrator shouted, “Here come the Romans!” Then the Romans came marching up the steps onto the stage. Then the another narrator shouted, “Here come the Celts!” and the Celts come running onto the stage. They have a huge fight and the Romans won the battle because they were better trained and equipped. – Rosie
