Continuing our work around Issues and Dilemmas, we used conscience alleys to explore the possible options available to the characters in our stories.
Reading Breakfast - Year 3 & 4
A big thank you to to all grown ups who were able to attend our reading breakfast last Wednesday. The children loved reading to you almost as much as they loved the bacon butties that were available!
We have been looking at Issues and Dilemmas in English, and had a really interesting discussion and debate around the question ''Is it ever right to steal?''.
The children came up with some really mature and sensible ideas and listened respectfully to each others ideas and points of view.
After this, the children were allowed to change their mind from their original point of view, based on the strength of each others opinions.
We made the most of the warm weather on Friday and went onto the field to collect data. We worked out the most popular colour and busiest minute. Later on we used this data to create our own bar charts.
Year 4 enjoyed designing their picture adverts that wiull also be included in their final filmed advert.
We have been learning about animals this week. Ask your child how they say their favourite animal in Spanish!

This week we have been looking at coordinates in maths. Today the children had a chance to fully immerse themselves in how translating shapes on a grid actually works.

Science - Sound
We have been exploring how sound travels and how how vibrations cause particles to vibrate. We then made our own string phones to talk to each other!
Year 4 Visit to Roman Chester
Year 4 had an amazing day at the Dewa Roman Experience at Chester. We learnt about the Roman way of life, explored Roman artefacts and some even dressed up as gladiators! We also marched through the streets of Chester carrying shields, the chants led by a genuine Roman soldier! The trip ended at the amphitheatre where Mr Stenson and Mr Simpson battled almost to the death!
The children thoroughly enjoyed the day and it has given them a greater knowledge of life during Roman times and what it took to be a gladiator! It was a fantastic day and every child was a credit to the school.
Thank you to all the parents and familiy members who were able to make Year 3 and 4s Maths breakfast a huge success. The children loved showing the adults how to play the various games and puzzles and we reached our goal of achieving the Silver Liverpool Counts Quality Mark Award. Well done everybody!
We have been exploring how sound is caused by vibrations which travel through the air. We have also been experimenting with making different sounds of our own!
