This week we had a visitor who taught us all about moving mechanisms! We learnt about pivots and levers before creating Route 66 themed mechanisms! See some of our wonderful creations!
Class 10 have been loving practising their class poem, There Are No Grannies in this Poem by Roger McGough. We hope to wow everyone in the Poetry X Factor this week with our spooky words! We have been working on our tone, intonation and volume alongside actions to put together a fantastic performance. Class 10 should be extremely proud of themselves!
Wow! We did it! Class 10 performed Roger McGough's No Grannies in this Poem for the whole school. We really enjoyed seeing everyone else's performances and definitely learnt a thing or two about poetry performance! Well done to everyone for making a grey Thursday morning really special.
In computing this week, we have been adding to our musical knowledge by using Garage Band! Garage Band taught us what different musical instruments sound like, and we have been discussing what moods and situations could go with these pieces.
In D&T we have been learning about pivots and levers. After discussing the way that they work, we made our own crocodiles. The class then evaluated their efforts by deciding what went well, what could have gone better, and what they would do differently next time.
Class 10 have been playing violins with the Rochdale Music Service. We started by playing Pizzicato before having a try with our bows! Class 10 have been loving getting to grips with playing songs, and should be coming home with knowledge of tempo and dynamics to share.
To start Year 4 we will be doing The Great American Road Trip in geography.
What are cities like in North and South America? What is a state?
In Science, we will be learning about sound.
How is sound generated? How does sound travel to our ears? How can we hear?
