4SP teamed up with 5PB to try and estimate how many litres of water there are in the pond. It was a tricky question and we used reasoning skills to try and make an accurate estimate.
Following lots of discussion, estimates ranged from 36 000 litres to 500 litres. How much water do you think there is in the pond?
4Sp were treated to a climate change extravaganza from the UEA Healthy Planet Group . Children learned about greenhouse gases, carbon footprints, the impact of climate change on different countries and different people (poor and rich families) and how to reduce their own carbon footprint. Over ten students from the UEA worked with 4SP to support children with their understanding of important environmental issues and develop our children into positive world citizens.
Here are some photos of the learning:
Here is a video of Brandon explaining the impact of climate change on a poor family in Beijing.

4Sp have had such a great day of learning…
First, outdoor maths and more shapes…
After break, we worked in groups to order Jeannie Baker’s book ‘Window’. Children sorted the pages into an order and analysed the story to identify the message.
After lunch, we wrote persuasive letters inviting our parents and carers to a museum. Finally, we had our Literary Gathering next to the pond. 4Sp enjoyed Oliver Twist and now they have read two Charles Dickens novels.
At the end of the day we discovered something special in the pond. Can you guess what it is?
4SP have been learning to identify and describe the properties of 3D shapes. Here are some photos. Can you name all the shapes and their properties?
Children in 4SP have been learning to identify countries and continents.
We used this app to support our learning:
Countries of Europe
Can you identify all the countries in Europe?

4SP and the Outdoor Learning club planted 100 tree seedlings to add to our 250 we planted last year.
The tree species: pedunculate oak, small leaved lime, beech, silver birch and hornbeam. We were lucky to get a break in the weather and we managed to plant all of the trees in 30 minutes on Friday afternoon.
