On Thursday, we had a commando fitness session and we did brilliantly! We showed excellent teamwork, stamina and agility. A fantastic effort from everyone!
In Year 4, we are learning about electricity. On Wednesday, we made predictions about whether we thought circuits were complete or incomplete. We then tested our predictions and had LOTS of fun. We discussed how adding additional batteries would increase the power and result in our light shining brighter and that if we added more light bulbs that the power would be shared and therefore appear dimmer.
In Year 4, we discussed our value 'peace' in terms of what this means to us and the difference between internal and external peace. We then read the story 'Where The Poppies Now Grow' before using water colour paints to produce our own poppy fields.
As you will have seen from the email sent out, the Youth Sport Trust will deliver a free virtual after school club as part of a national response to the second lockdown. The 30-minute club will take place at 5pm each weekday on YouTube Live and be led by a different member of the YST’s Athlete Mentor network. Starting on Thursday 12th November with world number one female inline skater and 10-time British Champion Jenna Downing. Aimed mainly at primary-aged children, a different theme has been assigned for each day of the club - Adventure Monday, Tuesday Play, Wild Wednesday, Thinking Thursday and Fun Friday. Follow us using #YSTAfterSchool and click below for more information.
In RE, we have been considering the different religions which are represented in Leeds. As part of our learning, we wanted to find out about the places of worship in Boston Spa: St Marys, The Kings Church and Boston Spa Methodist are our 3 local places of worship. Rev Steve Jakeman is the minister at the Methodist church and he agreed to give us a (virtual) tour of his beautiful church and he'd answer some questions we had prepared for him. We learned more about the life of the church and the difference lockdown has made. It was great to speak to him via zoom and to see the church. Each child who asked a question came to the front and posed their question clearly and sensibly. Rev Steve was really impressed with the questions and the children!
Comment vas-tu à l'école? We have been learning to talk about modes of transport in French. Here are three examples of conversations about how we get to school (some of the answers are a bit crazy - listen out for someone saying they go to school by boat!).Milan & FinlayEvan & FrancescaSam & Alesha
