Year 4 have been learning about the human body in Science and this lesson focussed on the skeleton. We have learnt that the skeleton plays a vital role in holding us upright, enabling us to move and most importantly it helps protect our vital organs. We were tasked with designing and building a skeletal-like structure that would protect our vital organs (in this case, a Tunnocks teacake). It was a great way of helping us learn just how important the skeleton is and we had lots of fun building and testing the structures.

Great Linford were hosts to Aspire football this week entertaining three teams from schools around Milton Keynes. We were very excited to represent our school and this was the first time the team had played together. Although the scores didn’t reflect our hard work we certainly increased the pressure and by the last game, we fought hard until the end resulting in a 1-0 loss. Overall a great afternoon’s football and a long list of children eagerly awaiting the next fixture.
Tony's Reptile show visited Great Linford this week and amazed us with some rainforest animals. We were able to get up close and personal to some of these rainforest dwellers and also learn some interesting facts about the animals. We saw boa constrictors, royal pythons, a red-footed tortoise and a tarantula to name but a few. Some of us were very scared to begin with but overcame challenges when asked if we wanted to touch the animals.
