Year 4 planted more of the native British trees donated by the Woodland Trust. We are committed to supporting the wild life we are fortunate to share our gardens with.
Children from Years 4, 5 and 6 travelled to Cadogan Hall in Sloane Square to take part in the Classical Roadshow -‘Battle of Britain -the turning point’ on 9th of March.
The children had worked hard with Mrs Simon to learn the songs which they sang, accompanied by the Royal Philharmonic orchestra. They joined 6 other schools to perform in the Cadogan Hall.
This is a wonderful opportunity for children to take part in a theatrical experience and they dressed up to enter into the spirit of 1940s London.
It was a great day out and we will certainly sign up again.
As part of our topic ‘Wild Weather’, Year 4 observed the effect of 250ml on three surfaces.
The children decided whether the grass, concrete, wood, mud and tarmac were impervious or not. We looked at flooding and talked about the effect of building on land, so that excess water is unable to drain away.
Year 4 made icelollies to see changes solid to liquid.
Year 4 have finished deciding which changes were reversible or irreversible when water was to flour, salt, sugar and cocoa. It was particularly interesting to see the table salt had turned into salt crystals and migrated up the side of the plate. (Well observed Scarlett!)
Year 4 used heat to change chocolate from a liquid to a solid. The Rice Krispie cakes went home in the paper bag designed and made in the DT lesson.
Year 4 travelled to the Barbican to perform with the Classical Roadshow in 'Fire'. What a great opportunity to be accompanied by the London Mozart Players and students form the Guildhall School of Music. We will perform it at school on Tuesday 29th November at 9.15 and all parents are welcome.
