In year 4 we are learning all about how our bodies work to digest food we eat.
We have had great fun watching clips on how the food we eat travels through our digestive system, whilst also doing some interesting activities to put our knowledge to the test.
A interactive board helps us to identify the key parts of the body whilst letting us scan a code and watch a few short clips of what the Digestive system does.

The Autumn term at St Edward’s has come to an end! Over the last four months, many, many children have created some fantastic pieces of work and represented themselves and their school to the best of their ability. We’re really proud of each and every one of them and we’re anticipating even greater things in the terms to come.
We would like to honour the achievements of some of the pupils who have covered themselves in glory at different points this term.
At the end of the week, each teacher chooses two children who have worked their hardest, performed beyond expectations and generally been a shining star.
We have also seen people working fantastically hard to improve their handwriting, making their work look more beautiful than ever. It’s been really gratifying to see such hard work and determination to improve; in recognition of this, here are the people who have earned their Pen Licences. Keep it up!
WRITER OF THE WEEK
One of the highest honours is the weekly recognition of one pupil from each year group who has gone above and beyond the call of duty to improve their writing. Not only have they met the success criteria for a piece of work – they have done it with flair, panache and a swaggering, flamboyant vocabulary that has delighted their target audience: their teacher.
Finally, entering the pantheon of greatness are those who have reached the highest echelons of achievement by obtaining the Gold Award. This is given for a level of meritorious, valorous, phenomenal behaviour beyond the expected standard. These children have met every challenge whole-heartedly and demonstrated the core values of our school in ways that we are incredibly proud of.
We are pleased to announce the genesis of the St Edwards Creative Writing Club! On Tuesday evenings, Miss Smith and Mr Groome are giving a group of Year 6 pupils the chance to express themselves creatively in different styles and genres of writing.
This documentary is based on every single juicy detail about swimming.
We have been spending every second perfecting every detail possible for our upcoming one and only swimming Gala. We have all decided that this is all because of our wonderful coach Mrs Sales.we,ve learnt so much and we,ll hopefully learn so more in
This has been a lovely opportunity and hopefully you have enjoyed it.

Hi today we are not going to teach…
In fact we are going to revise to see if you understood how to do all the different types of maths!
.Rounding What is 676 rounded to the nearest hundred?
.Roman numerals What is MMCLXXII? This might be hard but remember M is 1000,is 100 X is 10 I is 1 .
.Fractions What is 3 fifths of 25? Again this is hard so you do 5 divided by 25 which is 5 then you times the numerator to five .
.Multistep addition and subtraction There was 234 sweets for sell 10 were bought by Jane she returned 4 of them how many are left in the shop? So you do 234 -10=? Then you do add 4 and you get your answer.
We will teach you a bit of percentages
If your have 9 over 10 you have to add a 0 on both of the numbers you will have 90 over 100 the percentage is 90% we will teach you more after half term .
Children should try and work these out and parents should test and help them .Signing out till next time bye;).
