Year 4 Still Life

Over the next couple of weeks, Year 4 will be looking at Still Life as part of their art topic.

To help them to create their final piece, please could you send in any inexpensive vases, bowls, bottles, ornamental pieces, fruit (preferably fake) and any table clothes you may have by Monday 20th November.

We will return all items once we have finished with them.

Thank you.

Please can I ask that children arrive promptly in school for 8.30am as we will be doing two minibus trips and therefore want to get organised quickly.

Please see letter for more details and ensure that any outstanding consent forms are returned as soon as possible.

Many thanks,

Mrs Hartwell

World Science Day

As part of World Science Day, Year 4 learnt about Marie Curie the scientist. This year’s theme is ‘Peace and Development’ and so we focused on how Marie Curie’s work led to the development of x-rays. Ask them what they found out!

Year 4 are now tasked with the competition to plan and advertise a fundraising event to raise money for the Marie Curie charity and teach the rest of All Souls’ about the amazing work this charity does and why.

The winning group will lead their fundraising day across the school in the near future so stay tuned…

Minibeast Mania!

Today is World Science Day.

As a special little treat, Mr Rolison brought in his extended family of minibeasts for us to look at, learn about, ask questions and even hold if were brave enough!

All of Year 4 had great fun and loved learning all about the minibeasts so thank you Mr Rolison! 🙂

Fencing Friday

Year 4 had so much fun (possibly too much!) learning some new skills in their fencing session. They were taught how to whole a fencing sword, how to defend themselves, the rules of the sport and of course how to try and win! They all listened well, tried their very best to practise what they had learned and were also very brave!

Stay tuned to find out more about an exciting opportunity to take part in a fencing after school club!

Remembrance Day

Today, we learnt more about Remembrance Day and tried to understand deeper who the Royal British Legion are, why we wear poppies and how we can help.

We joined the rest of the school in 2 minutes of silence, wrote special prayers and created some blackout poetry.

Science-tastic!

This afternoon Year 4 and Year 1 were lucky enough to receive a visit from 5 scientists from Warwick ChemSoc Outreach.

Year 4 were learning about sound and discovered the difference between volume and pitch. They also made their own telephones choosing different sized cups and strings to explore which ones worked the best. It was really interesting to see how quiet we could whisper secret messages to our partners.

We had so much fun – it was a great way to start our new unit!

Year 1 were then wowed into their next unit of Materials and their Properties. They loved watched the dry ice!

 

How egg-citing!

Year 4 were so ‘egg-cited’ today to reveal what has happened to our eggs after being immersed in a variety of different drinks for the past week (other than releasing some rather pungent smells!).

Ask them what they discovered about the effect of drinks on our teeth!

The feasts of All Saints and All Souls’

This week Year 4 have celebrated two feast days: All Saints and All Souls. On  both days, we went to Church, and all children were reverent, respectful and prayerful. We have offered our prayers to the Saints and remembered those who are now with God.
