• Uncategorised Comments Off on British Science Week

    This week we explored who Sir Isaac Newton was and also watched the special videos created on Newsround in memory of Stephen Hawking.

    The children made slime to learn all about non-Newtonian liquids as part of their work on states of matter. The children explored how typically, liquids take on the shape of the container they are poured into. We call these ‘normal liquids’ Newtonian fluids. The slime the children created with cornflour didn’t follow this rule as it is a non-Newtonian liquid.

    The children seemed to greatly enjoy learning about these famous British scientists who can inspire them to be scientists of the future!

    Here’s just a few photographs…

    The children had a special workshop delivered by Mrs Jones all about the dangers of tobacco. It is part of a healthy living programme and initiative to educate children about the risks associated with tobacco. This year’s workshop was delivered to fit with National No Smoking day.

    The children took part in an interactive quiz, discussed key points and even saw a year’s worth of tar in a jar! The children designed their own posters which are now being displayed in the Smokefree hub in St Helens.

     

    A massive thank you to Mrs Jones for delivering such an interesting and informative workshop!

    Year Four had a fabulous morning at the Liverpool Philharmonic today.

    We were part of the Come to Your Senses school concert.

    Our host Alasdair Malloy told us how the hall had been turned into a listening laboratory and we used some of our science thinking to explore our senses.

    Firstly, we listened to a range of music performances  by composers such as Jean Sibelius, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Modest Petrovich Mussorgsky, Maurice Ravel and Matthew Hindson.  It was lovely to listen to and watch a live orchestra play.

    We then sang a song that had been written by Timothy Jackson who is a horn player in the Liverpool Philharmonic. The words of the song were set to Jack Prelutsky’s poem, The Witch.

    We helped the conductor with actions to help the orchestra perform and listened to music from the film, The Incredibles.

    Finally, we got up and had a dance to finish our concert experience!

     

    We were unable to take photographs with the orchestra playing but here’s a small collage of some of our class members:

    Here’s the brilliant biomes that the children created with the help of their parents.

    A massive thank you to everyone for their contributions.

    Our classroom really came to life with so many different habitats and animals!

  • Uncategorised Comments Off on Sports Kit for Cross Country

    Year 3 and Year 4 have been invited to attend the annual cross country event at St. Augustine of Canterbury Catholic High School on the morning of  Thursday 15th March.

    For this event, the children will need a suitable sports kit: a tracksuit, trainers and a water bottle.

    Children will come to school as normal in their school uniform and then get changed into their sports kit.

    Check out our class blog next Friday for photos of us completing our cross country run. Wish us luck!

    The children loved coming to school in their onesies and pyjamas to celebrate World Book day. It was great to see the children embracing the snuggle up with a book theme.

    We love reading in Year Four and spent some extra time reading for pleasure as one of our reading activities of the day.

    Look at our class collage of reading super stars here…

    This spring term the children are completing topic work which explores states of matter.

    The children had a Mad Science morning where they thought like scientists to complete some investigative work.

    Here’s some photos from their exciting learning time…
