Performing Playscripts

This week, Year 4 have started their learning about playscripts in English. This has meant reading a script of Jack and the Beanstalk in groups, deciding on particular acting and vocal expressions and then performing them outside to a wonderful Year 1 audience!

4 Gideon make some noise!

4Gideon worked hard today in our Science Sound topic learning the difference between pitch and amplification and working out how to change the pitch of different instruments - rather noisy but a lot of fun!

Investigating Sound Outside

4G had an enjoyable morning in the nature area and field, discussing their Science topic of Sound. Firstly, they were all blindfolded and worked together to follow a sound. After this, they were all given an animal sound. They made the noise and had to find the other members of their animal group using just sound as they were all blindfolded. Great fun was had by all!

"It was a tricky activity as you had to make the sound but listen at the same time. It took me a while to hear my sound above all the other noise."

Later in the morning, they moved into the nature area, making windchimes. These are now decorating their classroom.

4 Gideon enjoying outdoor learning

Year 4 had a busy morning participating in outdoor learning. They mixed cornflour and water to make dragon's snot - officially a non-newtonian fluid. It acts like a solid when we roll it into a ball but then like a liquid when they left it alone. After this, they moved to the nature area - playing together and also making smores.

4 Fountains Measuring

4 Fountains were measuring in the classroom this week to extend their understanding of metres and centimetres. They had to estimate first, then measure accurately and finally convert the measurement from cm to metres using decimals. Some great use of maths vocabulary too!

4 Fountains in the Nature Area

4F had a very busy morning in the nature area. They learnt many new games - cut the rope, bones, fingers and thumbs, slaps and otter, salmon, eagle. They all took part, co-operating well and having fun. We moved into the nature area where we completed a blindfold trail. Some of the children described their feelings of being fearful, worried and nervous when blindfolded. When they were leading, they felt responsible for the safety of others. We also completed the task of pond dipping with much excitement.

Conductive Music

4 Gideons and 4 Fountains had an amazing morning with a visit from 'Conductive Music' . We learnt about the technology of circuit boards, how to interface them with a computer using crocodile clips and used ourselves to complete circuits to enable us to play music. We also built our own musical keyboard using just pencils and paper!

Roman Montage Work

Class Montage and Mosaic work - as part of our Romans Topic we have been reading a book about the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in AD79 - we made this montage of the event based on a picture from the book. We have also been making some Roman Mosaic designs of fish too. We think they're great!

Fountains Nature Area Day

Fountains enjoyed a day in the Nature Area where they made cakes in Oranges.

Kassi Bance exclaimed “ I loved making food for the birds and putting it in different places."

Breakfast in France

In French, Fountains have been learning how to ask and answer what they would like for breakfast. They enjoyed eating and drinking French cuisine after answering Mrs Fisher's question: Qu'est -ce que tu prends pour le petit dejuner?

4 Gideon in the Nature Area

Year 4 Gideons had a wonderful day in the Nature Area despite the poor weather. Firstly, they explored and found the fairy doors designed and built by Year 6. Using their observational skills, they tried to colour match natural items found in the Nature area with colour mixing charts. After a quick snack, they set about building their own dens in groups with some interesting results.

In the afternoon, Year 4 enjoyed cooking cake on an open fire using an orange as their tin. They all enjoyed the texture of the cake, saying the orange flavour really came through.

Gideons worked hard today and hopefully all enjoyed their experience.

A quick peak at 4 Gideon's firework poems that are now on display in school - some lovely use of descriptive writing here!

Outdoor abstract firework paintings

Class 4 Gideon had a fantastic time on Outdoor learning day coming up with some amazing abstract splatter painting for our mini art topic designing an amazing firework party night. When we moved indoors, we added some sparkle to our pictures and completed the project by adding some street and city scenes to great effect!

Sounds good

4 Gideon had a great time conducting experiments about vibration and sound using string, cups and paperclips to make homemade telephones. We even tried to create a huge network enabling us to talk to each other as a class - well done it was a success too!

Good vibrations

We had a great time in our science lesson on sound studying vibration. We used straws to make flutes and then made beautiful music!

Gym session

Today we had lots of fun working in pairs to design and perform a gymnastic routine with set dances and transition work. Well done everyone - they were great!

We are reading the Iron Man in class and decided to try out our art techniques to produce some amazing silhouette art work and some really original split pin Iron Man puppets!

Making some flying 'O's

As part of our activities day on our first day back at school we tried to make some unconventional flying 'O's - they really worked too!

Finding the Iron Man

Class 4 Gideon had a fantastic time in the Nature Area trying to track down the parts of the broken Iron Man who had been seen in the area of the school and had apparently , blown up! We collected all the parts we could find and tried to rebuild him, just as he had done in the book, but alas we could not revive him. We had fun trying though.

Snakes Alive Visit

What an amazing morning for 4G & 4F coming face to face with snakes, lizards Tarantula's and other reptilian creatures. Great to see the children enjoying themselves and finding out lots of new facts for our topic.
