Minibeast hunt

We looked in the school garden to find as many invertebrates as we could.

Then we used classification diagrams to identify them.

Ask us what these words mean: antennae, abdomen, prolegs, proboscis, mandible, segments, hindwing.



Today we have been learning about invertabrates. We enjoyed going out into our school garden to carry out an invertebrate hunt.



Smoking: Year 4 PSHE

Today year 4 had a special visit from the St Helens Smoke-Free Team who came to talk to us about smoking. We learned about why smoking is not good for our health and how it affects different parts of our bodies. We also learned about what makes some people begin smoking in the first place and how as we get older we can make good choices for our health. Thank you for a very informative visit!




Tobacco Awareness

We had a visit today from two ladies from City Health Care Partnership, talking to us about the dangers and problems with smoking. Some of the resources included a model of a smokers mouth and a years worth of tar! Disgusting!!
