Year 4 – A year of music

This year the children in year 4 have been given the opportunity to learn to play a variety of different instruments including clarinets, cornets, baritones and glockenspiels. The children have learnt a number of new skills which they were then able to show off alongside the Hallé Orchestra at the Bridgewater Hall. We have then finished the year with a bang by learning how drums can produce different tones by being played in different manners.

Year 2 DT – Ferris Wheels

Year 2 have been discovering the world of Ferris Wheels. We have looked at the world real life examples of Ferris Wheels and why we use them. We have planned how they can be built using a variety of different materials and today was the day of our big build. The children used all of their knowledge and built their Ferris Wheels.

Year 4 – Design Technology – Alarms

After the shocking discovery that our classroom had been broken into and our items thrown all around the room. We then decided that the classroom needed an alarm system. We then spent some time researching the purpose of alarms, where, when and why they are used.

Today the children then took their plans for their own alarm system for the class and made a miniature version of the classroom. They used their knowledge of electricity from our science work to build circuits to trigger alarms when their classroom as an intruder.

They have worked so incredibly hard and as a class they have won a Good to be Green for the whole class. What fantastic work Year 4.

Balance Bike Day

Today in Foundation Stage we had an exciting opportunity to take part in a workshop using balance bikes. The workshop was led by Proride. The children learnt how to ride a balance bike, learn new skills and then go onto improving their skills through a variety of different games and rides.

Lego Building

Today the children were given a great opportunity to see the power of Lego. Year 3 and Year 4 worked together to continue to build the Olympic village and stadiums that had been started previously from the rest of the classes.
