In DT today Elephants found out all about Charles Macintosh and the development of waterproof fabric. We applied this knowledge by thinking about how we could make paper waterproof. We used wax crayons, oil pastels, plastic sheets and cling film to cover our paper, the tricky part was folding the paper into a boat! We were really impressed by how well the oil pastels worked! #dcpselephant #dcpsdt #dcpsstem #dcpscore ... See MoreSee Less

Elephants enjoyed their workshop with Worry Wizards this afternoon. We learnt about what we can do to help make our worries smaller and the importance of wellbeing. #dcpselephant #dcpslifeskills #dcpscore #dcpslotc ... See MoreSee Less

Year 4 continued with their British Inventors DT unit today, learning all about reinforced concrete. We were amazed to learned that it’s inventor was W.B Wilkinson who was a plasterer from Newcastle! We had great fun trying out various structures to see how reinforcing them made them stronger. We then put our knowledge to the test by trying build structures from newspaper and tape that would hold a dictionary, some were more successful than others. #dcpselephant #dcpsdt #dcpscore ...

Elephants started their DT week and we are learning all about British Inventors. The start we found out all about the invention of the telephone. We have fun looking at different types of telephone and we’re stunned that you actually use a dial to enter someone’s number, rather than just a touch screen. We also acted out the first type of communication device by being speakers and copper wire. We also investigated string telephones. Next we found out about the World Wide Web and were amazed at what websites used to look like, no lovely pictures and easy to use menus! #dcpselephant #dcpsdt #dcpscore ... See MoreSee Less

Elephants loved their STEM week and are now experts in classification keys and using them to sort and identify species. We finished the week by thinking about environmental dangers living things might face, including endangered species. We talked about what we could to help the environment and came up with some fantastic ideas. #dcpselephant #dcpsstem #dcpscore ... See MoreSee Less

This half term Year 4 have been learning a spy style dance for their dance unit. They have been amazing at working together to develop a routine, thinking about formation, freeze frames and follow the leader. #dcpselephant #dcpspe #dcpscore ... See MoreSee Less

Elephants have absolutely loved their ukulele sessions this half term. They have worked hard to learn chords and use them to play different songs. We are currently learning a much loved classic, keep an eye out for our performance! #dcpselephant #dcpsmusic #dcpscore ... See MoreSee Less

Elephants have been working on their tenses this week. We worked hard to sort verbs into the past and present tense, we then applied our knowledge to play a game and see if we could beat our friend to the finish! #dcpselephant #dcpsenglish #dcpscore ... See MoreSee Less

Elephants have had a fantastic start to their STEM week. We are looking at living things and their habitats. So far we have identified and sorted animals into groups and had a go at making our own classification keys. #dcpselephant #dcpsstem #dcpscore ... See MoreSee Less
