Friday 1 December: Class 4's Worship

Congratulations on a fantastic class worship last week! Written by the pupils and delivered with clear voices and enthusiasm, we shared  all our learning from this half term: E for En Francais, N for Navigation, O for Observing Over Time, R for Rockets, W for 'War of the Worlds', D for Dance and I for Incarnation - I WONDER! 

Below are a couple of videos we shared - of our coding work using Scratch and our dance inspired by the music of Jeff Wayne and HG Wells' science fiction story.

KS2 Visit to Magna Science Adventure Park

Along with Class 3 and Class 5, we visited Magna Science Adventure Park in Rotherham.  We had a great day exploring the four zones - Earth, Air, Fire and Water - and taking part in a workshop on 'Stars and Planets. (The playground was also really fun!)

Autumn 2 2017: I Wonder...?

On Tuesday 7 November, we had a visit from Louise and Namrah from the School of Chemistry at the University of Leeds to undertake a 'Mighty Mix Up'! We had a great morning creating mixtures, solutions and emulsions - including trying to make our own vanilla ice cream!

We have started reading H.G.Wells' The War of the Worlds and we have listened to some extracts from the musical version and Orson Welles' radio broadcast. Here are some of our artworks inspired by the musical track.

We have begun studying the 'Big Story of the Bible',  learning how to use Bible references, as well as looking at the illustrations in some Bibles.  We have drawn our own pictures to accompany some well-known Bible stories
