What is a blog? …“Blog” is an abbreviated version of “weblog,” which is a term used to describe web sites that maintain an ongoing chronicle of information. A blog features diary-type commentary and links to articles on other Web sites and can focus on one narrow subject or a whole range of subjects…
Each of our year groups will have access to their own class blog where the pupils will share their learning and will be able to develop their writing skills as they will be writing for a wider audience.
Do feel free to comment on the children’s writing and ideas, one thing to be aware of is that all comments will be moderated before going live on the site .
Thank you for your support and happy blogging!
We have been investigating and learning about mountain formation. Year 4 worked on practical demonstrations to show how each kind of mountain comes about.
Well done Louie, Amelia M, Lewis, Freya and Charlie.
This week we have been science mad! We have done lots of experiments to explore solids, liquids and gases. Here are some pictures of some of our best results.
The Fizzing Volcano:
On Tuesday, the children who completed the Sacramental Programme last year went on a special trip to the Schoesnatt Shrine.
Our day was titled ‘The Amigo Experience’ and all our activities focussed on how we can start our new lives after First Holy Communion as good friends, just as Jesus taught us.
We made body maps and filled them with qualities that a good friend needs to have.
We had a quick change race and thought about how easy it is to change our clothes, but how hard it can be to change ourselves inside. We wrote about the qualities we love in each other.
We role played the story of ‘The Lost Coin’.
We finished our day with a blessing in the shrine. We had a wonderful and enlightening day and the recounts the children wrote about their experiences were excellent.
Year 4 have been reading and working on ‘George’s Marvellous Medicine’. We made our own medicine in class and the children described each ingredient really well.
Year 4 wrote some fantastic pieces about the medicines they would make for Grandma.
