Happy Birthday Sam and Caitlin.
Inspired by our topic ‘What impact did the Romans have on us?’ Year 4 recently visited Chester. Armed with battle shields and under the ‘strict’ instruction of an experienced legionary, Year 4 discovered what it took to become part of the greatest fighting forces the world has ever known. It was a fantastic day.
Welcome to the ‘Year 4 Rockets’ blog page. On this page you can find out what we have been doing throughout the week. We will put photos and information about the work we have been doing in class. You can also keep up to date on class celebrations and our house point achievements.
Congratulations to our newly voted in councillors Aarav and Lola. We know you are going to do a great job for us.
We hope you enjoy Year 4 Rockets.
Year 6 have spent three action packed afternoons at the Helly Hansen Watersports Centre, Salford Quays.
Conditions were perfect for all the activities, which included: canoeing, kayaking, windsurfing and sailing. Each session focused on having fun, gaining water experience and learning new skills in a more challenging environment.
The children were amazing and had a fantastic time, making many more memories together.
Today, Year 6 took part in a workshop delivered by Odd Arts. The workshop explored the children’s thoughts and feelings about transitioning to High School.
The children had the opportunity to identify and discuss their worries as well as share the things that they are most looking forward to at their new schools.
During arts week Year 6 were very lucky to be visited by an artist: Isobel Pickup. She helped the children to transfer their William Morris designs onto printing tiles.
The children used great concentration and skill to cut out their design. Then it was printing time; lots of ink, precisely placed rollers and patience were called for. Year 6 rose to the challenge and even the man himself would have been proud of their craftsmanship and printmaking efforts. Finally, Year 6 produced true masterpieces that pay homage to William Morris.
Year 6 have been inspired by William Morris and his Arts and Crafts movement. The man who believed that “wherever nature works, there will be beauty”, that art should be accessible to all and not “only a few” and that hard work would result in success, has been an excellent role model for all the Year 6 artists and designers.
The children used elements of Morris’ patterns to create their own unique designs.
