The Romans
Year 4 recently enjoyed a fabulous Roman experience when two Roman citizens arrived at Newby primary School to let us experience details of their daily lives. The children were able to hold and investigate a number of different artefacts that helped to explain aspects of Roman life, such as writing tools, carvings, games, weapons and armour whilst the leaches used in Roman medicine were particularly interesting! A Roman banquet was played out which allowed us to understand the different roles in Roman society and the food they enjoyed which still left us with time to learn about weapons and armour. The children took part in Roman military exercises in the afternoon before finishing with a play that helped us to understand the Roman invasion. It was a fun filled and interesting learning experience for us all.

Digestive system
We have been learning about the workings of the digestive system during our science this half term, which has been really interesting. Did you know that it takes 7 seconds for food to travel down your oesophagus to your stomach? The most fun was had when we got to recreate the digestive system using cream crackers, orange juice, a zip lock bag and an old pair of tights!

Science
Year 4 have been working hard to apply their new knowledge of electricity and electrical circuits to the design and building of a working torch with a self-built switch. Working together, the children were able to design, build and test their own switches before thinking about fitting the circuit into their torch. The final torches were a remarkable sight and really lit up the room.

Science

Volcanoes
Following on from our recent Roman work, the children were immersed in the topic of Pompeii and it’s nearby volcano, Mount Vesuvius. With a smattering of guided reading, a spoonful of map reading and a cupful of science, Year 4 were able to explore how volcanoes are created and the potentially devastating effects of an eruption on people and their surroundings. With an exciting challenge homework based around additional research and the creation of a volcano, the children had a truly explosive finish to 2018.
