We had a very fun science lesson today, we were investigating if temperature effects the speed at which chocolate melts. We planned our investigations in groups and then we carried out the investigation.
TODAY WE HAD VISITOR IN OUR CLASS AND THEY WERE TEACHING US ABOUT BEING HEALTHY. FRESH STANDS FOR FOOD, REST, EXERCISE, SMILE AND HEALTHIER. WE LEARNED ABOUT HOW MUCH SUGAR CUBES ARE IN DIFFERENT DRINKS, THERE WERE SOME FIZZY DRINKS AND SOME FLAT DRINKS. WE GOT THE SUGAR CUBES OUT AND FIGURED OUT HOW MUCH SUGAR WAS IN EACH DRINK. WE WERE SHOCKED BY THE AMOUNT OF SUGAR THAT IS IN CERTAIN DRINKS. WE ARE GOING TO TRY SWAPPING THESE FOR HEALTHIER OPTIONS.
THEN WE WENT INTO THE HALL AND PLAYED SOME DIFFERENT GAMES.THE GAMES WERE ALL BASED ON DRINKS AND SUGAR CUBES.ONE OF THE GAMES WAS A STUCK IN THE MUD GAME AND TWO PEOPLE HAD A RED BIB ON AND THEY WERE PEOPLE WHO TUG THE OTHER PEOPLE WITH NO BIB.THEN THERE WAS SOME OTHER PEOPLE THAT HAD A GREEN BIB ON SO THEY SAVED THE PEOPLE THAT HAD BEEN TUG.THEN THERE WERE FOUR DIFFERENT COULERED HOOPS RED, BLUE, GREEN AND YELLOW. BLUE TEAM WON THREE TIMES, RED TEAM WON ONCE. WE ALL HAD LOTS OF FUN.

Yesterday we went on a trip to Castleshaw for a ‘Romans’ Day. When we arrived we were greeted by Matt and he took us into the classroom and we had a lesson about the Romans. He was very impressed with our knowledge. After that we looked at some objects and we had to decide if they were from Roam times, could have been from Roman times or were definitely not Roman. Matt said that we did really well with this and we got them all correct. We then went outside to be Roman soldiers and we had a lot of fun. We marched around, made formations and we even had little battles. After lunch we went up to the Roman Fort to do some orienteering. During the activity we experienced torrential rain so we all made our way back to the centre, we all got very wet. Soon after that it was time to get back to school. We learnt a lot on this trip and everyone enjoyed the activities.
We had a very fun science lesson today, we were trying to find out if gases weigh anything. We tested this by weighing a balloon and then we inflated the balloon and we weighed it again and it was 1g heavier. We then investigated if carbon dioxide weighs anything. Each group had a bottle of lemonade. We weighed the bottle and recorded the weight. After that we took it in turn to shake the bottle and we let it settle, we then opened the lid and allowed some of the gas to escape. We then weighed the bottle again and it was lighter. Both of these investigations prove that gases do weigh something.
We have been having a lot of fun today in science. First we were given some equipment and we had to work out how to make a circuit to light a bulb and we then drew a diagram. After that we were given ten cards with diagrams of different circuits, we had to predict whether the bulb would light or not and then we had to make the circuit to see if our predictions were correct.
On Friday the 23rd of March 2018, Year Four and Year Two went on an exciting trip to Oldham Coliseum to experience Choral speaking. Choral speaking is where groups of people get together to recite poems. Year Two performed one long poem (The Great Fire of London) and one shorter poem (The Owl and the Astronaut). Year four followed the same pattern. Their poems were The Owl and the Pussycat and The Further Adventures of the Owl and the Pussycat. We all had a fantastic time and we performed really well. Mrs Pollitt was very proud of all of us. On the 27th of March both classes performed to the whole school and they are both very proud of themselves. Both classes really enjoyed doing the Choral speaking and would really like to do it again.
