Visitors Galore:

We've been busy in year 4 with a number of visitors who have spoken to us about different aspects of our learning.


Our first visitor - Mrs Mayne - came to talk to us about her job as an optometrist. Mrs Mayne talked all about what she does, the sorts of things an optometrist might look at/for during an eye examination and what they might use. She also showed us some fascinating optical illusions.

Our second visitor - Mr Wilder - performed his magic show. Mr Wilder showed us a variety of jaw-dropping tricks to great applause and wonder - there were definitely lots of "oohs" and "wows"! Without revealing the secrets of any tricks, we finished the afternoon with a question and answer session.

Our third visitor - Dr Claire Clode - talked to us all about the ear - the different parts of the ear, how we hear, how to look after our ears and what might cause our ears to hurt. Dr Clode helped us to understand the ear by using various ordinary objects to represent the different parts of the ear!
