Electrical Circuits

4G have had a great week this week designing electrical circuits (that work!) and looking at different materials to discover whether they are conductors or not conductors. They did really well and had some surprising results.

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.

Angry Birds 2

Year 4 had an amazing trip to the Odeon Cinema on the 12th November to see Angry Birds -2. It was all free under the provision of 'into film' scheme - bonus! The children had a great time (and I think all the adults enjoyed it too!).



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!
