Captain tom Moore was a British army officer. He was born in a town called Keighly and it was not that big of a town. Before his birthday he had set himself a challenge which I will mention later. He was born on April 30th 1920 and has a daughter.
The challenge that he set himself was to do 100 laps to raise maybe over £1,000 and successful it was! Before his birthday he made it over £23m which is very much a huge amount of money. He did all those 100 laps just in his garden.
When he was still young he had multiple jobs so he used his time wisely. The 1st job was being a managing director of a concrete company and then joining a motorcycle race. Who knows there could be more! To Bradford it was known as a civil parish.

tAlexander Graham Bell
He was born in 1847 in Edinburgh.
When he was 1o years old and his mother was deaf.
His mother put her hearing tube on the piano to listen.
He was always interested in sound all around you, like the snapping sticks but unfortunately his mother couldn’t hear the lovely sound of nature.

Alexander Graham Bell
Alexander was born in 1847 Edinburgh. Alexander Graham Bell was very interested in sounds.
I don’t know why Alexander was so interested in sounds. Maybe to help deaf people to speak and help his mum hear.
His dad set him a challenge to make a talking machine and it almost worked with Watson. They rented two rooms next to each other.
The mouth piece used acid to turn to electricity. Sound travels through the wire then sound turned back into talking.
How a river is formed?
A river begins as a source at the top of a mountain. This source could be: a spring, glacier, rain or even collected snow. This source travels down the hill/mountain(because of gravity ), after that the source enters a waterfall. The waterfall then pushes the source to the main channel. There can be parts of the main channel where a tributary ( smaller river) can join the main channel. This place is called a confluence. Where a river enters the mouth (ocean) is called an estuary. There can sometimes be delta which block part of the water from flowing in. On both sides of the river is a floodplain. When the river floods the floodplain floods. The river can cut through it forms a meander and leaves an oxbow lake.
Oceans and seas
Amazingly oceans cover 70% of the worlds surface! There are 5 oceans: the Pacific Ocean, Indian Ocean, Atlantic Ocean, and Arctic Ocean. Out of these oceans the Pacific is the biggest, it covers 30% of the worlds surface. Did you know that the sea is were land meets the ocean? It can also be a smaller part of the ocean like the Mediterranean Sea.
River Nile is the longest river, it travels through 7 countries ! Did you know that the Dead Sea is actually a lake? It got its name from the high saltwater, also the Dead Sea got its name from that no fish in the WORLD can live in it because it’s water can kill them.

My favourite topic of Year 4 for now is the Vikings because of 2 reasons 1.We created a viking village 2.They had old and amazing weapons. Facts are that they had no horns! And they ruled before the Romans. I mostly liked the big write about Odin the king of the Gods. I settled PERFECTLY in year 4.
My AM target was to try and put more effort into my work but I probably didn’t achieve it because I rush my work.
Evaluating me I would say I am the best of myself with Mrs Edwards,Mrs Powel and Mrs Arnott. My good peers are Nadia,Kevin not to forget Oscar.
I would say my new target could be ‘be a better friend’.
