Year 4 had a wonderful Wow day immersing themselves in learning about their new topic, Tremors. The children created their own volcanoes using clay. Professor Southgate taught the children how to mix substances to create lava and there were many squeals of delight as the lava rose and poured over the sides of the volcano. The children also created explosive volcano paintings in the style of Nick Rowland. They learned how to use different techniques and colours to create the dramatic effect. What a fantastic Wow day!
Mrs Simmons here! We are having problems letting you post pictures in the comments. If you email them to the school email – firstname.lastname@example.org I will create a blog post with them all in. I hope you are all keeping safe. We miss you, but hope to see you all as soon as we can.
In Year 4, we are busy designing our own Viking long ships at home. We are paying close attention to the stern, the prow, the sail and the oars. When we have finished our work, we are going to post photos of it here so we can see what all our friends have been doing too.
I wonder what feedback we can give each other? Something we have done well? An area for improvement? The Year 4 teachers can’t wait to see what your Viking Long ships all look like!
Today the children have taken part in a range of sporting activities to raise money for Sports Relief 2020. The money will support people living incredibly tough lives in the UK and around the world. Year 6 Sports Ambassadors, Mrs Welch and Mr Stroud organised a carousel of sports activities ranging from the traditional egg and spoon race to hockey. The children thoroughly enjoyed there sessions and showed great sportsmanship.
Year 4 had an incredible Wow day on Friday for their Potions topic. They experimented with a range of different materials to create bath bombs and slime. They also had the opportunity to see what happened when you add dry ice to water. An interesting and enjoyable day was had by all (especially our resident Science Whizz, Mrs Southgate!).
Year 4 created some outstanding pots today in the style of the Ancient Greeks. Decoration to follow!
Year 4 stepped into Ancient Greece today during their ‘Wow’ day. They learned about many different areas of the civilisation and took part in a final play using the content covered.
There were Greeks galore today in Year 4 as the children roared in their new topic ‘Gods and Mortals’, centred around Ancient Greece. As well as making their own olive leaf wreaths, the children rewound time through participating in an Olympic Games and prepared themselves for battle…
