Fun in Year Four!

Here are some photos of Year 4 working hard and having fun at the same time!

They did a couple of experiments in Science to find out if the bubbles in fizzy drinks are weightless or not, and to work out how long it takes for chocolate to melt at different temperatures. They then made their own lollies since it would have been a shame to waste all that lovely chocolate!

They designed a chocolate bar label and wrapper in Art/DT lessons.

In English they worked in groups to write and perform a TV advert to sell a fizzy drink , a chocolate bar or a packet of crisps.

No need to say we have been feeling very hungry all week!!

Well done, Year 4!

Harvest Festival

This morning we celebrated Harvest Festival in church and what a wonderful service it was!!

A big THANK YOU goes to all the children and staff involved but also to all the parents, carers, relatives and friends who attended the service and to all the people who contributed to amazing donations brought in for Bradford Food Bank.

Each class sang wonderfully well, the readers had lovely clear voices and the members of the choir sang their little hearts out!

Here are a few pictures of this memorable service.

Thank you, everyone!
