It's hard to believe that we only have a couple more weeks until half term - Summer already seems so long ago!
I am very proud of the attendance of 4S and this was recognised in today's celebration assembly where we were the first class to win the Attendance Award in KS2. Well done everyone! Having good attendance makes such a difference to a child's progress, so 4S won't have any excuses now!
In Science this week, the children investigated how to alter pitch by experimenting with different amounts of water in glass bottles and then blowing across them to generate sounds. This proved more problematic for some than others, but provided much entertainment! Needless to say, the challenge I had set of playing '3 Blind Mouse' was a step to far! Why don't you ask them what they found out?
AIn Literacy we finished the book 'a Picture book of Jesse Owens', which generated some lovely work, and concluded the week by looking at other influential black people in history. This was particularly relevant as October is Black History Month. The children researched Rosa Parks, Mary Seacole, Martin Luther King and Nelson Mandella. The prejudice and struggles against adversity that these people (and many like them) have experienced, was most enlightening for the children and hopefully inspirational.
