Ancient Greek Day!

Father’s Day choir visit to St. Anne’s church

At the recent Father’s day service at St Anne’s church, some members of the choir bravely gave up their Sunday morning lie-in and sang for the delighted congregation.

They performed, ‘One more step’ and ‘I wish I knew how’ finishing with Dante, Amea and Jasmine from Year 6 singing their own Father’s Day song. It was the first time a cartwheel had been seen in the church during a service and it was warmly received despite an initial look of surprise from Father Gordon. Everybody received a very appreciative round of applause and were welcomed back to sing as soon as possible. Father Gordon finished the service by generously giving refreshments to the children to distribute to their thirsty fathers. The choir stayed cool despite the high temperatures and remained the true professionals that they are.

Thank you to Daniel, Siya, Wronika, Ashley, Lincoln, Kimberley, Jasmine, Amea, Dante and Sapphire.

The Jungle Book

Year 4 have finally finished publishing their Jungle Book tales. We will all have our own version of The Jungle Book to take home and read to our families! Here are the openings of Ayat’s and Mikayla’s.

 

Symmetrical necklaces

Year 4 solved a problem today involving symmetry. Using 8 beads, 4 of one colour and 4 of another, we found as many symmetrical necklaces as we could. We thought about how to present our findings and if we could make necklaces using a different number of beads and which numbers would work best for this.

London Zoo

Last Friday, Year 4 visited London Zoo. We took part in a Rainforest Explorer workshop where we had to spot different rainforest animals and had a special thermometer to measure temperature and humidity. We even stroked a Madagascan hissing cockroach!

Afterwards, we had the chance to look around the zoo. We especially enjoyed Tiger Territory, Land of the Lions, Penguin Beach and the scariest part…In with the Spiders!

Support for Grenfell

This afternoon, Year 4 are busy making our banner for our sponsored walk to raise money for all those affected by the Grenfell Tower fire

A sunny Wednesday

After a hot playtime, we spent some time in the library reading a range of different books to help us relax and cool down!

 

Investigating sound

This afternoon we investigated the different mediums sound can travel through. One way we tested this was by hitting instruments and putting them in water and watching what happened to the vibrations.

 

When the firefighters came to visit….

In Nursery we have been talking about People Who Help us. We were ever so lucky to have a special visit from the local firefighters who even let us have a go on their fire engine.

It even inspired us to create our very own fire engine at Nursery!

Making Pizza Muffins

The children had a lovely time making pizza muffins this week. The children chose their own toppings from olives, sweetcorn or ham and did the spreading and sprinkling all by themselves.

Here are some photos of the super concentration that went on and the fun that was had!

Henri Rousseau

Today, Year 4 mixed different colours to create different shades of green which we can use in our Henri Rousseau inspired artwork!
