Year Four - Chimps

Poetry Fun!

The children have been getting creative this week, writing poetry, based on  a book they are reading in their class.


Here is a video of the Chimp class chanting a Kenning poem inspired by the opening of our new book - Ice Palace by Robert Swindells. The children are describing the character - Starjik and giving warnings about how to stay safe from him.

Take One Picture

As part of the Take One Picture whole school project, we made a secret potions cupboard!

The children really enjoyed making their potions bubble and fizz.     BEWARE!



Kensuke's Island

The children worked hard in groups to make these fantastic models of Kensuke's island using Modrock and a lot of creative thinking and resources.



Claymills Trip

Here are some pictures taken on our topic launch trip to Claymills Pumping Station. The children had a lovely day finding out about how steam was used to power machinery in Victorian times. They also enjoyed watching a Blacksmith at work and learning about bathing in a Victorian bathhouse!





The children were really well behaved and listened well to the interesting and informative talks given by the friendly volunteers.
