Teaching Assistant

Wow, what a start to the half term! On Monday, we were treated to a session with Max from R.O.C.K. We spent some time in the hall becoming our very own Year 4 rock band. The children loved this opportunity and had a blast playing the instruments.

Topic Launch

 

A big thank you to one of our parents for coming into school to help launch our science topic ‘ We Are Electricians’. The children loved hearing all about Mark’s job. They also loved looking at all the equipment he brought in to show them.

Spanish Day

Yesterday, children in KS2 celebrated all things Spanish. From this year children will no longer be learning French and we will be learning Spanish. The children spent the afternoon tasting Spanish food, learning about the history of Spain, learning how to flamenco dance and .learnt about great Spanish artist.

English

The children have been learning about the story of the Pied Piper. This week, the children have used drama techniques to show that they understand the story. They then thought about how the different characters felt at different parts in the story.

 

The children have written their own stories based on the plot of the Pied Piper. We can’t wait to share our stories ‘The Pied Piper of Worsthorne’ with year 2 this week.

Science

To start our science unit, children worked in small groups to make gloop. The children loved getting messy and seeing how the gloop acted when it was being moved, and when is was still.

Children were given the I wonder question, I wonder what will happen to the raisin when we put it in to lemonade. The children were amazed when they saw the gas bubbles lifting the raisin to the surface.

Art

Year 4- Sculpture

This half term, children in year 4 have been learning about sculptures. Our theme has been centred around birds and the artist Marcus Coates. Children studied his work and talked about how the bird sculptures made them feel and  what they think it might be like to live in a nest. Children then used different mediums to draw/paint birds nest.
