Open afternoon in 4LJ


We had lots of fun when we invited the parents in for an the afternoon! We taught them how to do loads of different things, like how to create one cut books; how to do a mental maths test and how to earn a pen licence.


Ethan taught his Mum how to make a stained glass window using only triangles.


Daisy used a character description to help her Mum illustrate a story.


Both Adams and Ben showed Adam’s Mum how to sort different rocks into igneous, metamorphic and sedimentary.


Emma and Rachel taught Emma’s Mum how to reflect shapes in a mirror line.

It was really exhausting doing all that teaching… I think we’ll go back to learning instead! 🙂

4LJ Investigate Rock Salt.

This week 4LJ have been investigating rock salt. In groups we conducted experiments to see who could extract the most salt.

There were quite a few stages to our experiment – Firstly we have to sieve the rock salt then we added water to dissolve the salt. Next we filtered the mixture through filter paper and finally we left the salty water, in a Petri dish, over the weekend. We are all looking forward to seeing what will happen next!

We need to get rid off all the big bits.
