This afternoon, year 4 performed a play called Easter Praise at St Lawrence’s Church. Following a lot of hard work and practise, the children acted and sang superbly. All the teachers were very proud of the effort and enthusiasm which was put into the performance. Special thanks to Reverend Paul at St Lawrence’s for allowing us to use the church and to Mr Richardson for playing the music.
In the build up to Easter this week, year 4 have had the opportunity to learn more about Holy Week by taking part in a range of activities at St. Lawrence’s Church. As part of their R.E. studies, the children enjoyed an afternoon exploring the different parts of the Easter story. Many thanks to Reverend Paul and the volunteers at St. Lawrence’s Church for hosting the activities.
Last Wednesday, the children from year 4 had the opportunity to learn more about Ancient Egypt when they visited the Hancock museum in Newcastle. The children looked at all sorts of historical artefacts, recorded facts and even investigated mummies by taking part in a workshop. It was an excellent day, where the children represented themselves and the school superbly.
Today, year 4 have visited an African market as part of their Literacy work, looking at stories from different cultures. They looked at a range of photos, videos, audio clips and had the opportunity to sample some of Africa’s finest fruits and spices.
In science Year 4 have been learning about the different states of matter. One of our investigations was to show how heat can turn a solid into a liquid. We used chocolate and our hands to demonstrate this process. The children loved this investigation and the chocolate.
