Year 4 get 'funky' in Science
This term year 4 have been learning about animals, including humans. They have explored the human skeleton, finding out that the femur is the longest bone in the body (it makes up a third of our height!), animals can have a skeleton on the outside of their body (exo-skeleton) and that muscles work in pairs!
On Thursday, 4R discovered what actually happens to our body when we exercise. After listening to Sarah Outen, a British athlete and adventurer, describing the effects of exercise on the body, they took their resting pulse and breathing rate. Then, to increase both of the previous and to witness the effects of exercise, the class underwent a stringent workout to Bruno Mars ft. Mark Ronson’s Uptown Funk (watch the video on Vimeo ).
This is what the class had to say about exercises effect on their body:
You know when you have been working hard because you go red and sweaty, also your heart beats faster.
Sometimes after we exercise and then rest, our muscles can ache.
We breathe fast after exercise because your body is trying to get more oxygen.
When we exercise my heart beats faster because my body and muscles need more oxygen.

It’s been a busy week full of book related fun. To kick off Book Week The Library hosted a Book Hunt for the Prep School on Monday which saw the children hunting high and low for a selection of titles. On Tuesday it was Pre Prep’s turn as they took to the Astro to hunt for favourite book characters—I’m glad to say the glum weather did not dampen their high spirits! Prep School have been designing bookmarks during their library sessions with some fantastic designs created by our artistic pupils.
