Year 4 Photos – Spring 1

We have been very busy this half term! Here are some photos to prove it!!

In Maths, we have been learning about angles, symmetry, perimeter and properties of 2D shapes.In Science, the rice experiment taught us that vibrations create sound and we investigated how to make a low and high pitched sound with various instruments.

In English, we learnt a Polish legend about a clever cobbler who defeated a terrible dragon and a rhythm and rap poem about an iguana. In RE, we learnt how Hindus worship at home and in a Mandir and created a Hindu shine in our classroom. In French, we learn to name the parts of the body and what to say at the doctor’s. We also took part in a fantastic workshop on the Ancient Egyptian mummies!

Well done, Year 4!

Year 6 Science & Media Museum

On Wednesday 13th February,Year 6 went on a visit to the Science & Media Museum in Bradford. We went on the bus and took part in lots of activities once we were there.

We looked at the TV, gaming and animation exhibitions. In addition, we took part in a ‘Light it up’ session with science experiments about light. Before lunch we watched an Imax film and saw the dissection of a sheep’s eye and learnt the parts. Lastly we explored the Wonderlab and conducted science experiments.

Well done Year 6. You were a credit to the school and learnt lots!

Chinese New Year

Today we had a great day learning about Chinese New Year.

We wrote in Mandarin,watched a dragon dance, made vegetable spring rolls and tried different foods.

How The Moon Moves

In Science, year five have been learning about Space. For their final lesson, they discovered how the moon moves. The children worked in groups to produce a model which demonstrates the way the moon rotates and translates around the earth. They also discovered the four different moons we experience and how long the cycle takes. Do you know what they are and how long it takes?

School Council Meeting

Two pupils from year five attended the School Council meeting this morning with Mr Daynes, then came back to tell their class about the meeting. They explained that the council were trying to think of ideas to raise some funds for our school and asked the children if they had any suggestions. If you have any ideas, feel free to comment below.
