Mamma Mia!

As part of our Mamma Mia topic, Year Four sampled some Italian delicacies – risotto, prosciutto, focaccia, pepperoni and tortellini.  Every child tasted something and the responses  were overwhelmingly positive! Over the next few week, we will be designing our own Italian dishes and, at the end of the unit, we hope to invite parents in to taste our dishes!

Y4 Meet ‘Winston’

In Year Four, our recent English work has been based around a short Disney film called Feast, which features an adorable French bulldog named Winston.  Imagine our delight when a real life Winston came to visit us today! I think you’ll all agree that he is just amazing! Thanks so much to Mrs Payne for bringing Dave to meet us.

Year Four Rock!

Yesterday, Year Four began their journey to become rockstars! Over the next six weeks, Mr English will be coming into school to teach the children how to use Garage Band on the iPad. Each week, the pupils will create a section of music which will eventually build into their own song! Mrs Watson appreciated the moments of silence when all 31 children had their headphones on! We’ll look forward to hearing the end results!

Year Four Gangsta Granny Workshop

Today, Year Four were treated to an amazing drama workshop linked to the production of Gangsta Granny! We created our own ‘gangsta’ alter egos and performed Granny-style rap, created freezeframes from the play and improvised our own scenes.  Thanks to Stef from the Sunderland Empire for making our afternoon so fun!

Science Club

At science club this week Year 3 and 4 have been learning about acids and alkalines. The children had to test different liquids to see if they changed colour. If the liquid changed to red it was an acid, if it went green it was neutral and if it went purple it was an alkaline.

We had a great time playing investigating liquids and are looking forward to next week!
