Good Vibrations in Year 4

Today in Year 4, the children have been learning about how sound travels to our ears. To show how this works, we made string telephones which work by the vibrations from our voices travelling down the string to a receiver at the other end. The vibrations then make their way from the cup, into the air and then into our ear, hitting the ear drum.

We found that these worked best when the string is tight and the children weren’t touching the string.

A fun and engaging way to learn about sound. Well done Year 4!

Peach Perfection

This morning, Mr Alcock’s class have done a fantastic job of creating their peach cobblers. The children showed an excellent understanding of food hygiene, knowing key why we wash hands, tie hair back, wear aprons and clean our work surfaces.

The children then showed super skill when cutting the peaches, measuring ingredients and mixing the ingredients together to make the crumble topping. Delicious!

Party time in Year 4

Today, the children in Year 4 were immersed in the Christmas spirit as they enjoyed dancing, Christmas karaoke and party games. Afterwards, the children even had time for a refreshment break of juice, cake and biscuits.

We’re sure that they will sleep well tonight!

Here are a few pictures of the day.
