We have gotten off to a cracking start here in fourth class. We went out to collect conkers from horse chestnut trees. They we had a conker competition to see who had the strongest conker. It was great fun!!




In art we really enjoyed making clay monsters for Halloween. Check out the pictures of us making them and the finished products.

Experiment Time

Ms Macken’s 4th Class have been conducting a science experiment to find out how important it is to wash your hands! We experimented with 5 slices of bread, touching each slice . 1 unwashed hands, 2 laptop, 3 control (wasn’t touched), 4 hands cleaned with hand sanitiser, 5 hands washed with soap and water. We discovered that the laptop keyboard is a bacteria playground! We were confused about why our bread touched by hands washed with soap and water was so mouldy and noticed it had gotten wet from touching wet hands. So we conducted another mini experiment to find out what difference drying your hands fully makes. You’ll have to return to find out the results!
