As part of Children’s Mental Health Week, Year 4 took part in a Wellness Workshop delivered by Luna Blu Creative Arts Therapy. The workshop focused on children thinking about how they feel in certain situations and ways to manage worries. Here we are blowing our worries away!
We love learning about different cultures and this week we found out about Chinese New Year and how it is celebrated. It was fascinating to compare it with our own celebrations. As this year is the Year of the Dragon we made our own!
Year 4 really enjoyed working alongside author Steven Camden to create a story. This linked nicely to our literacy work where we have been dreaming up our own fantasy world to create a portal story based on The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe by C.S.Lewis.
Today we were excited to welcome our visitors from Newcastle University Street Scientists Outreach Program. Year 3 and 4 took part in the Young Scientist workshop and Year 5 and 6 participated in Thinking Like a Scientist workshop. We took part in a range of experiments and if you were interested in that topic we found out what you can study at university.
Here are some of the things we learnt:
- If we enjoyed electricity we could study Electrical Engineering
- If we liked animals we could study Zoology
- If we enjoyed learning about sound we could study Physics
- If we like coding we could study Computer Science
- If we wanted to learn more about how the brain works we could study Neurology
We had great fun having a go at making slime, a non Newtonian fluid. We enjoyed observing how it reacted when we did different things to it such as stretching, twisting and poking it.
We had a great time at our party. There was lots of dancing and singing. We also played games such as pass the parcel and corners.
Year 4 have been hard at work using their knowledge of electricity and circuits to make a working torch. We designed and made all of the components needed. We had lots of success.
Year 4 really enjoyed yoga today.
Another wonderful week of learning for Team Marine!
Well done to all of our children for their achievements this week.
Who will be the next TTRockstar’s most valuable player or Star Writer?
We have been learning all about electricity. We conducted an experiment to test different materials to see if they were conductors or insulators. Some results surprised us.
