Welcome to Year 4 - Silver Birch and the newly named Christmas Tree!
Mr and Mrs Higton are the class teachers for Christmas Tree and Miss Gilbert is class teacher for Silver Birch
Mrs Anstee and Mrs Clark support staff.
In Science, Year 4 have been learning about teeth. As part of the topic, we did an experiment leaving eggs in a variety of liquids to see what damage they did to the shell. Not surprisingly we discovered that water did the least damage and that coke and vinegar caused the most damage. The photos show Christmas Tree class doing the before and after egg experiment.
We were really lucky to have Saify's mum come and talk to us about teeth health. Saify's mum is a dentist and she gave us really great tips. We did an experiment where we chewed a disclosure tablet to show up the plaque on our teeth. All the children had some plaque but they all now know how to brush properly which is great for their teeth health! Big thank you to Saify's mum for coming in.
Sonia Brooks OBE
Mrs Brooks came into our school on Friday 19th October. A couple of days ago she was rewarded a very special medal one for her O.B.E. Exactly what O.B.E means is officer of the British Empire. She was allowed to bring three guests, those guests were me her daughter, her son and her husband.
She came into our class because she wanted to show them her outstanding medal. So what she did is got me to walk around and show it. After I had shown the class she explained what she did to deserve her medal and what her job was.
As a prison officer she deals with a lot of criminals every day. Also the day Mrs Brooks came, she inspired us and told us we can do anything you put your mind to. By Aneela Brooks
