Has anyone solved the murder mystery yet?
Science - Types of Circuit
We looked at different types of circuit and assessed the positive and negative of each type with suggestions for how they could be used.
The children had a fantastic time on Friday morning in the Judo session.
Maths - Investigating Area
The children enjoyed working in teams to find the most efficient way to cover the area of their tables.
Science: Making Pressure Switches.
The children worked well in teams to design their own 'burglar alarm' using Tin foil as a pressure switch.
As part of our topic about Italy, we sampled a variety of Italian food. We discussed the similarities and difference between the food of Italy and the UK and why they might be different. Also, we talked about the importance of food hygiene.
Urgent information required;
If you know anything about the 'strange intergalactic craft' that landed nearby, please inform your child. This will allow us to solve the puzzle of the alien object found beside the football pitch. Our CCTV camera caught this footage.
Science: Making Electrical Circuits to Test Conductors & Insulators.
The children worked collaboratively to make circuits to test which materials were the best for conducting or insulating electricity.
Year Four's Visit to Durham's Oriental Museum
The children thoroughly enjoyed visiting the museum to discover more interesting facts about Ancient Egypt. They impressed the museum's staff with their knowledge.
The death ceremony was very popular with the children, especially Ammut - 'The Devourer'.
4GR Egyptian Artwork
We have been blending oil pastels for texture and depth of colour.
The children have really enjoyed using Times-Tables Rockstars. We will have regular Battles between different groups across the Key Stage.
Please encourage your child to use this on a regular basis to support their learning.
All of the children in Year 3 and Year 4 enjoyed their performance of a traditional Bulgarian tale, 'The Winter Witch'.
English - Narrative Writing
