Year 4 Recorders

Year 4 are really enjoying their instrumental lessons as part of their music curriculum. This week they were able to learn the note ‘B’ and even play along to a simple song.

Miss Peek was very proud to pop in and hear Mrs Stevenson’s class progress.

Year 4 – Mad Science

Year 4 kicked off their brand new science topic with a bang this morning as Mad Science led a fantastic workshop.

They learnt all about static electricity through the use of a Van de Graaff generator, which raised a few hairs!

Children were introduced to the terms ‘conductor’ and ‘insulator’ and used themselves as a pathway to allow electricity to flow and light up a bulb!

A big thanks to Mad Science for such an informative and engaging workshop this morning. We can’t wait to find out more about electricity over this half term!

School Council Christmas Bauble Project

Back in November, the School Council decided to buy every child a clear bauble to design and decorate ready for Christmas. Each year group chose their own designs and have been busy over the last few weeks creating them.

In Year 1, children filled their baubles with Christmas sequins and they decorated the outside.

In Year 2, children turned their baubles into reindeer and used them to decorate the Christmas trees in their classrooms!

In Year 3, the children turned their baubles into snow globes, complete with snowmen inside.

In Year 4, the children used lots of glitter and glue to decorate the outside of their baubles.

In Year 5, they used tissue paper and glue to create a textured bauble which they filled with yummy treats!

And finally, in Year 6, the children filled the inside of the baubles with glitter, then used white pen to create patters on the outside.

We think they all look amazing! A great big thank you to the School Council for organising this for everyone.

Year 4 Christmas Art

This week, Year 4 have enjoyed getting into the Christmas spirit by creating their own Northern Lights artwork.

They used chalks to create the colourful light display in the sky and the snow beneath.

Then, they used black paint to add the silhouette of trees, thinking carefully about size and proportion.

Finally, they added splashes of white paint to create the effect of snow.

We think they all look stunning!

Year 4 Roman Catapults

This week, Year 4 have been learning about the history of the catapult and have made their own version of Roman style catapults.

They used their measuring skills to measure the wood accurately, then used junior hacksaws to cut the wood to the correct lengths. Next, they used hot glue guns to join all of their pieces together, complete with elastic bands to create the tension.

Each class then had an opportunity to try out their catapults against mini figurines. A great time was had by all!

We are so proud of all the teamwork and grit and determination that was shown throughout the week.

Y4 Science – The Digestive System

Over the last couple of weeks, Year 4 have been learning all about the human digestive system. They have learnt the names of the different organs that support digestion and what happens to food at each stage.

Yesterday, Year 4 demonstrated the digestive system using bananas, Weetabix, scissors, tights and more..! Have a look at some of the photos below!

Making Musicians!

Some KS2 pupils went with Miss Peek and Miss Forrest to Norwich Cathedral for a music recital this afternoon.

They were able to enjoy a short concert featuring piano, french horn and violin. The children heard a range of music and were even able to ask questions.

Thank you to Norwich School for hosting.
