Healthy School Week Timetable

This week in English we have been writing our own explanation texts. We were focussing on why aliens are abducting children and coming up with some very interesting ideas. Some children were brave enough to let Mrs. Cobbe film them performing or reading them to the class. We hope you like them.

This week we have been investigating Ancient Greek theatre. We learnt that they usually had exaggerated expressions so people at the back of the theatre could see. We have made our own, do you like them?

This week in history we have been learning how to dress like an Ancient Greek. We worked in groups to dress each other and found it wasn't as easy as we thought it was going to be.

How much food!?!?

During Science this term we did an investigation on how different liquids can affect our teeth. As we couldn't use actual teeth we used eggshells as they are the nearest to enamel we could get. 

We put eggshells into Coke, orange juice, water, milk and vinegar and left them overnight to see what would happen. Look at our results.

Ask you child about the results, some were quite dramatic.

4N made some fantastic Christmas stockings this year, their designs were lovey and the sewing was beautiful. 

Thanks to all the adult helpers who gave up their time to assist us - we really couldn't have done it without you.

During our History topic of the Ancient Greeks we made small pots from air-drying clay. Once they had dried we used cocktail sticks to add our designs. Sadly some of the pots didn't make it home as they became very fragile once dry. 

Welcome to Class 4N

Science

 

As part of their Science topic, 4N made their own pneumatic objects to discover that air is a physical matter that can help us in our everyday lives.

Maths

 

 

Mrs Novelli's maths set made their own graphs and challenges out of sweets and chocolate. Can you solve their problems?

 

Geography

 

 

As part of 4N's Geography topic, 'Chembakolli', we made messy maps to explore the different physical and human geography features in Chembakolli compared to Liverpool. We found that there were much more human features in Liverpool (orange) and more physical features in Chembakolli (yellow).

Science - The Water Cycle

 

4N made their own clouds out of food colouring and shaving foams to discover how the water cycle works!

 

 

LFC Diversity Activity.

February birthday's in our class: Happy birthday to George. Samuel's birthday was in January sorry for not updating the class page sooner.

We hope you have a great day :)

The children enjoyed a very informative assembly taken by Mr Bell this week. During lessons, we spent time looking at the important issues regarding the children's on-line safety. Below are some useful links and documents for you to look at at home. The children created 'Pledges' or 'Good Deeds' in relation to making the Internet a safer place for the people in our community! Please ask your child about their pledge.

 

Safer Internet Day - look at our internet pledges.

SCIENCE...Making Cup telephones.

I would like to say a big thank you for all the lovely gifts and cards that I received over the past few days. I am very lucky to have such thoughtful, kind children in my class.

 

I wish my fantastic class and all their parents a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS and hope you have an enjoyable holiday. See you all, fit and well, in 2015 .

Best wishes   

        Mrs Novelli xx smileyxx

A huge THANK YOU to all the parents and Grandparents who came in to help 4N and I with sewing over the past few weeks.  I am extremely grateful to you for giving up your time to help us. We couldn't have produced such amazing stockings without you.

DT Project this term was to design and make a stocking. Didn't 4N do well!!

We have been studying the Romans this term. We have learnt so many great things about them, especially about how they fought and conquered many different places to create an empire. To do this they needed to be great fighters. Their weapons and shields helped them stay safe. Here you can see some of the Roman shields that we made.
