On Wednesday we had a visit from Jenny from Congleton library, she told us all about the summer reading challenge and year 4 and 2 were invited to the library to choose some books.
Class 4 had the best time during sports day.
At lunch time yesterday we enjoyed an ice pop and sat together on the grass. Who doesn’t love summer?
Isabella attended a festival last weekend with her family and made some seed bombs. She brought these into school for the children to sprinkle around the school grounds,
We can’t wait to see how they turn out. Thank you Isabella for bringing them in to share with your friends.
On Monday Class 4 took advantage of the lovely weather and completed their science investigation outside. The children worked in groups to investigate which material would be best to use to soundproof a room. We found out that the best material that blocked out the most sound was egg boxes made from cardboard followed by bubble wrap.
The children had the best time on Tuesday, exploring and climbing at BeWILDerwood in Cheshire. Thank you Mrs Isherwood for arranging such a fantastic trip.
We are extremely proud of all of our pupils who took part in town sports on Wednesday at Congleton High School. Here is a photo of Theo Cooper with his silver medal that he won for skipping. Well done Theo!
Year 4 and 5 had a great morning going back in time at Congleton Town Hall on Thursday morning.
On Thursday, Year 4 had the most amazing opportunity to play at the Bridgewater Hall to play with the Halle. The children were fantastic, they loved the singing, dancing and playing their instruments.
On Monday afternoon as part of our science we made rockets and looked at the science behind how rockets get to space. The children mixed ENO powder with water, which is a fizzy powder. When we added the powder to water, it produces a harmless gas caked carbon dioxide. This is what makes fizzy drinks fizz. The gas builds up inside the rocket, building up pressure, until eventually the rocket is blasted off.
We had lots of fun! Some rockets went really high.
This morning we have had our first session at astbury mere, it has been so much fun. We learnt how to build a raft, tie knots correctly and had fun trying them out in the water, lots of us ended up falling in the water.
We have completed our DT project, the children painted their boxes to make them look more realistic and we tested them for a final time.
This week Year 4 have been extremely busy working on a project. The children have learnt all about electricity during their science lessons and have put this to good use this week when being faced with a scenario.
The scenario was that – Elena is fed up with her baby brother coming into her bedroom and messing it all up, she wants to put an alarm on the door so she knows when he tries to go in. Can you design a battery-powered circuit for Elena to help her solve the problem?
The children worked hard to research how they could do this, spent time planning how they were going to do their design and finally made their alarm systems. Every group managed to make an alarm that sounded when a door was opened.
The children evaluated their designs and said what was good about them and how they could improve them next time, well done Class 4.
Year 4 are making great progress in their music lessons.
On Wednesday morning, as a school we visited Trinity Church and Reverend Tim for our Easter service. Year 4 led the service with the rest of the school singing.
