What an exciting day! Elm and Maple class were lucky enough to have an amazing trip to the Battersea Power Station to learn all about Electricity. We learnt how electricity works and we even saw how we can pass it through our own bodies. We also learnt about fossil fuels and renewable energy linked to the power station! Our final bit of the trip we got to become architects and design the new development, thinking about what we would want if we were to create a community! We’re now going to take this back and apply this in our science and geography lessons!
On Friday 23rd November children from St Anne’s school were invited to take part in a tree planting event in King George’s Park as part of National Tree Planting Week.
In order to win a place on the trip children had to complete a tree quiz. Two winners were selected from each class.
The winners were:
Olive: Harry and Milena
Willow: Ethan and Chloe
Maple: Cassie and Declan
Palm: Wirda and Daisuke
Elm: Ronika and JoJo
The winning children went down to King George’s Park on Friday morning with Mrs. Steward. The children helped to plant two trees in the park.
Next time you’re in King George’s Park look out for St Anne’s trees!
Well done to all the children who took part in the tree quiz! There were some amazing entries!
In science, year 4 have been looking at states of matter. At the end of our unit we wanted to measure the rate of evaporation so we looked at three different environments where three towels could dry. The children all worked really well together in their groups as great scientists to discover which environment was the most efficient at drying the towel.
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.
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
After a hot playtime, we spent some time in the library reading a range of different books to help us relax and cool down!
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.
