Digital Media

The Year 4 children have been using cameras as part of their Digital Media work in ICT. They have learnt to take photos in landscape and portrait, how to zoom in and how to delete. Next week, they will be uploading photos and editing their pictures.

 

Reading Challenge – Councillor Mellen – January 2018

Today Councillor Mellen came to read to 272 of us as part of his Reading Challenge. As the photograph shows he has already achieved his target and our children added to that number!

The charity he is supporting  sends books to children once a month until they are five. Councillor Mellen is trying to extend the number of Nottingham children benefitting from this scheme. If you would like to make a donation, please see the attached information.

Looking after our teeth!

Year 4 children have been looking at boiled egg shells in different liquids. We wanted to link this to how liquids act on teeth. We put boiled eggs into water, milk, orange juice, apple juice and coke. After only 4 days we could see a difference in the egg shells.

The egg shells in water and milk had not changed at all. The egg shell in orange juice had lost the outer layer and looked white. The egg shell in apple juice had also lost part of the outer layer, looking white in parts and where the layer was left, it had turned a dark brown. The egg shell in coke had turned dark brown and felt gritty.

We will leave the egg shells a few more days to find out what happens next…
