Everybody listening - it's The School of Noise!
4F & 4G had a brilliant morning learning all about sound with 'The School of Noise' investigating how sound is formed and looking at numerous different instruments and machines that produced sounds. The class looked at different ways of producing 'music' and we also had a go at being 'foley technicians' and dubbing sounds onto a film sound track!
A really great learning opportunity for the class, enjoy the photographs.
Pizza Express Experience
Class 4G also had a 'taste - tastic' time during our visit to Pizza Express, who kindly gave us lessons in making pizzas: dough tossing and taste testing. What a great trip out to a local business, thank you Pizza Express.

Listening and learning outside

Outdoor Activity Day
For our outdoor activity day we decided, as a class, to do 2 activities. First we spent time investigating electricity around the school for our topic work.
We then took part in a class sketching session. We took time to use our artistic skills sketching different view points and different 'things' around the school as part of a bigger art project on shade and light. Look out for the finished project work later in the year!
