Our special reading box

Last week the special reading boxes were out into circulation. Our first person to take this home was Lily Mason who enjoyed hot chocolate with her family and reading with nana and mum. Lily loves reading – she really enjoys chatting to me and her peers about books which is fantastic to see!

Who will be next to receive the amazing reading box in 4H?

‘The Book’ by Michael Rosen

in Year 4 we’ve been learning the poem ‘The Book’ by Michael Rosen. We started learning this in our first week of the half term and this week we revisited it in honour of World Poetry Day. Mrs Burrows and I were so impressed by how well the children remembered it! I’m sure you’ll agree.

Moth Day 2021

As part of our evolution and inheritance work in Science we have spent today celebrating “Moth Day”. The stimulus for this was the text ‘Moth’ by Isabel Thomas and with lovely illustrations by Daniel Egneus.

our text of the day.

We used the story to help us track the stages of adaptation of the peppered moth (Biston betularia).

This afternoon we then looked at a research paper from the University of Manchester which measured moth populations in Leeds. We used their academic data to plot the moth populations. We then drew conclusions from this data and compared with the findings from the paper abstract.
