Science Week 2019
What a week Year 4 have had! As many of you will know, the children have been very excited about their investiagtions and the Science Fair proved to be a roaring success The children were also fortunate to recieve a visit from Chemistry students from Warwick University who amazed us all with their dry ice demonstration. Thank you to all the parents and other adults who have supported the children to help make this week so successful.
Advance notice for Theme Day on Wednesday 30th January
On this day the children will be investigating ice and how to melt it quickly. They will be learning more about the choices polar explorers need to make and the children will also be painting (so aprons will be needed please). If children wish to then they can dress up as a polar explorer or as a penguin!
We hope you all had a restful and enjoyable break. The children have been back a week and are becoming thoroughly immersed in the Science (States of Matter) and in English they have been learning about the technical and organistional features they will need to include in their writing. Maths has been all about multiplication but we are about to move onto methods of division.
A massive thank you...
Thank you to all the parents for providing the children with costumes, practising lines and bringing them back to school for an evening performance yesterday. Without this invaluable support, we would not be able to do these shows to anything like the same standard.
So, once again - thank you from the Year 4 team (Mrs Bloomfield, Mr Upcott and Mr Roberts).
Year 4 had a brilliant day building dens in order that they could use them as a base from which to observe any passing monsters. They worked collaboratively and showed enormous resilience and good-humour as the dens were being constructed in the morning. The afternoon was spent sketching the passing monsters. Naturally, Year 4 were superb observers of monsters (of which there were a surprising number) and were far better than the adults (Mr.Roberts, Mrs.Hixon, Mr.Upcott and Mrs.Bloomfield could never quite see them!).
Finally, thank you to all the parent support we received in sourcing the materials and then transporting them to and from school.
