Ultimate Frisbee tournament
Springwood hosted their second Ultimate Frisbee tournament. They were able to demonstrate some of the skills that they learnt during PE sessions and work as a team. Two of the teams won medals this year, coming 2nd and 3rd.
Due the fundraising by the Friends of Springwood, Year 4 were able to go into the explorer dome to learn all about forces. Inside the explorer dome; we looked at the forces that act on objects, the role of magnets and what it would be like to be in space. The dome allowed us to see things close up and bring the learning to life.
Year 4 had the exciting enrichment opportunity to take part in a zoolab workshop to develop their knowledge as scientists.
Focusing on the classification of animals, the children explored how we group animals so that if another specifies was discovered we could identify what it was like. The children learnt about the qualities of different species and were able to feel live creatures including a giant millipede, a guinea pig and a giant cockroach.
The learning that the children gained from this session will help them in further science sessions when we look at classifying animals for ourselves.
Year 4 Transition day
Welcome back to another year at Springwood. Mr Curry and Miss Welch will be teaching your children this year.
As part of our transition into our new classes (Ants and Newts) Year 4 have been researching our creatures. We went around our grounds searching for creatures so that we could learn about their body parts.
Back in the classroom, we drew our creatures using sketching pencils and used wire to create models that are displayed in our classroom.
