Class 4 – Roald Dahl Day

For Roald Dahl Day in Class 4, we created our own poems based on Mr Twit’s beard. We then shared our ideas and used them to create a class poem, which we shared in Achievement Assembly. The children performed really well, they all spoke with loud and proud voices. Well done, Class 4.

Class 4 – Space model

On Friday, Class 4 used their research to make a model of Space using fruit.

Each planet was represented by the following:

  • Mercury = peppercorn
  • Venus = raspberry
  • Earth = cherry tomato
  • Mars = blueberry
  • Jupiter = watermelon
  • Saturn = grapefruit
  • Uranus = apple
  • Neptune = lime

We then discussed how we could improve our model. Some of the fantastic suggestions were to include the moons of the planets, draw their orbits and make sure our model is to scale.

Frame Structures in Class 4

Today, Class 4 explored making some frame structures. We started by creating a 2D shape from spaghetti and marshmallows. We then used that shape as a face for our 3D shapes. After that, we made the tallest structure we could. As our structures got taller, we had to reinforce them with extra spaghetti.

After break, we used bamboo kebab sticks, paper straws and elastic bands to make a frame structure which could hold a weight. Will’s structure managed to hold a weight of  1700g! As we added more weight, we had to reinforce our structures and try to balance the weight in the middle of the structure.

Today’s activities allowed us to work as a team, as well as develop our resilience and perseverance. Tomorrow, we will design a frame structure for forest school for Class 1 and 2 to use.

Well done Class 4

Class 4’s display

This term in Class 4, we have been looking at Rivers and water. We made a big display showing rivers and the water cycle. It was so beautiful, we didn’t want to take it down but luckily we have taken a photo to share with you!

Class 5’s St Agatha’s Church Visit

Last Friday, Class 5 went to St Agatha’s church in Llanymynech to look at the various features of a Christian church.

All of the children enjoyed their morning and learnt a great deal.  They were a pleasure to take out of the classroom and listened

impeccably to Reverend Trimby and her volunteer helpers from the local churches in the area.

Arthog Outreach – Canoeing and bushcraft experience

Today, the Year 4s and some children who had previously missed out on the opportunity went to Pool Quay. We spent half the day canoeing and the other half completing bushcraft activities. Everybody had a lovely day in the warm, sunny weather and the behaviour was excellent.

Young Scientists Club – Week 3

This week, we placed skittles around the edge of our plate. When we added water, the water became colourful. This is an example of chromatography. We also tried to grow some jelly babies. We put 1 in water (which grew), 1 in salt water (which shrunk) and 1 in cola (which went like a jelly blob). We found out that the jelly baby in the sugary water grew the most. This was all down to osmosis.

Climbing and Caving in Year 3

On Monday 18th June, Year 3 had an amazing time climbing and caving around Llanymynech rock.

The children all challenged themselves despite the dreary weather and their behaviour was, as always, exceptional.

Well done Year 3.
