Year 4 news...

Merseyside Police Band

We thoroughly enjoyed listening to ‘The Merseyside Police Band’ earlier this week. We loved all the songs, but especially the Disney ones! We learnt all about the different instruments that make up the band. We didn’t want your performance to end. Well done everyone!


British Science Week 2018

Year 4 had so much fun during British Science Week. We got the chance to make our very own poo! We also had the opportunity to investigate our friend’s homemade poo and try and work out what that person had been eating. Sounds disgusting right? We hadn’t realised Science could be so fun! It was great becoming real-life archaeologists for the day! Take a look at some of the photographs below (if you dare) :

‘Mad Science’ Assembly

What a fascinating Friday Morning! We really enjoyed carrying out lots of fun and exciting experiments with Turbo Tom! Science is really like magic! We really couldn’t believe our eyes… from water turning into juice, to flying water, to green snotty foam and even a genie in a bottle! Take a look at some of the photographs below:


Antoni Gaudi Art Day

We had such an exciting day making our very own Antoni Gaudi lizards. We used wire, newspaper and masking tape to create our lizards. We then used tissue paper to create a mosaic look just like the artist himself. Here are some photographs of our day:


Not Exactly Mary Poppins

We had so much fun rehearsing and performing our school production ‘Not Exactly Mary Poppins’. We especially enjoyed all the lovely music. Well done to the narrators, dancers, actors and everyone involved! Our parents were so proud and we even saw a few tears at the end! Below are some pictures of our performance:

Take a look at the video which was shown at the end of our production. It was lovely to share our hopes and dreams for the future with our family and friends!

 

 


Safer Internet Day

We had a great time working with One Day Creative in a spy themed e-Safety workshop. The session reminded us how important it is to have our own passwords, to keep our information private and to be respectful on the Internet.


Chester Zoo Trip

Here are a few pictures of the children enjoying the Chester Zoo Trip. We had a fantastic time looking at all the wonderful animals. We learnt so much about the different types of animals. What an amazing day and a lovely Christmas treat!


Anti-Bullying Production

Years 1 – 6 thoroughly enjoyed an anti-bullying production earlier this week. It was lots of fun but had a number of important messages. Can you remember what they were?

 


URENCO- Science Day

We had an informative day with URENCO. We learned all about acids and alkalis and also about how different things can be separated.

Firstly- We found out sieves can be used to separate different size things.

Next- We scooped different white powders into wells. We added an indicator to each and observed the liquid substance changing colour. They changed colour to blue, pink or purple. Purple showed it was neutral, the pink showed an acid and the blue showed an alkali.

After that- We then tested two different types of pens. We first put a dot of ink on filter paper. We then added drops of hydrogen hydroxide. This showed the pens were made up of different colours.

Lastly- We separated water and lettuce using a centrifuge. We pressed the button at the top, this made it spin around really quickly and the water fell to the bottom. The centrifuge separated the two things using weight and gravity. We found out that this is exactly how URENCO separate uranium!
