Caterpillar

On Tuesday, Year 4 went on a visit to Caterpillar where we got the chance to go inside lots of different vehicles! We were also given lots of challenges to complete including a spaghetti and marshmallow challenge (to build the biggest tower) and the lego challenge ( to assemble as many diggers as possible in five minutes! It went so well that we have been invited back again in the future to look at more the equipment!

Welcome Back Maple Class after Easter! The Summer term has begun and Maple have kicked off their new topic: Traders and Raiders, all about the Anglo-Saxons and Vikings! We have written some excellent Non-Chronological Reports after researching all about Anglo-Saxon life. On Wednesday, we went on our Faith Stories trip to Shree Jalaram Prarthana Mandal temple and Church of the Matryrs in Leicester. We found it very interesting to look at the beautiful paintings and statues in the temple and learnt about the Hindu faith. At the Church, we learnt all about its history and the way in which they worship there.

Making Burgers!

 

Last week Mrs Bryan came into school to help Maple make some tasty beef burgers as part of our topic on Road Trip USA. In groups, we all took a turn grating, chopping and shaping the patties. We prepared some tomato and cheese and then tucked in! Yum Yum!

This half term we have been reading George's Marvellous Medicine. Last week, we looked at the poetic verse in the story which tells the story of how George creates his special medicine! We spent time practising the poem, and thinking about how we could improve our performance.

Happy 2016!

Maple have returned back to school after the Christmas holidays ready to explore their new topic of Potions! On Thursday, we spent the day investigating our new science topic: states of matter, making chocolates and finding out what happens when you heat a solid and cool a liquid. We did some sketching of a potion scene using chalk and pastels, and began to explore the density and consistency of liquids!

We are starting to get the photographs onto the site now, but with around 2000 images to go through and upload, it will take a little time to get it all done!

Welcome to Maple class. The children have settled in brilliantly over the past couple of weeks. We have stared our brand new topic Misty Mountain Sierra and we have been doing a lot of map-based work looking at Google Earth and OS maps. We have also already had the chance to go on our first trip of the year to Bradgate Park. Which, although not a mountain, gave us a chance to get a bit higher up in Leicestershire! We had a fantastic time despite the rain. On a tour of the grounds a leaf hunt and doing some sketching. We also managed to spot a lot of majestic deer!
