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.

Family Art Workshop

Thank you to all the parents who attended the Art Workshop this week. The group got to experiment with different mark making  and printing techniques and got a bit messy too!

It was lovely to see the children really focused on their tasks and enjoying working with their adult to create a string of summer bunting. The end results were really striking so fingers crossed for some nice weather so they can be hung outside.

Easter Painting Workshop

Last week, Exwick Heights hosted a well attended Easter craft workshop. The weather was extremely kind so we were able to use our outdoor classroom in the nature area.

Children and their grown ups painted suncatchers and hung them from the tree near our friendship bench. They look wonderful and catch the sunlight beautifully!

Thank you everyone for coming, it was a great success.
