This morning, year 4 went to Orimiston Ilkeston Academy to attend a science morning. During this morning the children were able to have a go at lots of different science activities that we don't normally get the opportunity to do in primary schools. The teachers at Ormiston put on a range of different activities, where the children look at the amount of energy different crisps contains. This meant that we were able to have a go at using bunsen burners, as well as wearing special goggles. The children were also able to see what happens when methane bubbles are lit. Take a look at our pictures and videos below, I am sure the children will be able to tell you all about which crisps have the most energy.
Due to us having a snow day last week, today has been our world book day instead! Great effort from everybody who came dressed up as their favourite book character! You all looked fantastic!
We also brought in our favourite books to share them with the Year 5 children. This was a lovely experience to make some new friends through our love of reading.
PIRATE OF THE CURRY BEAN!
As part of our topic, Playlist, this half term we have been preparing and practise our musical performance of 'Pirates of The Curry Bean'. All the children have been working hard learning their lines, dance moves and even brushing up on their acting skills, though we still have lots to do before it is performed to parents.
Ticket request forms have been sent out, due to limited space these are allocated on a first come, first served basis. So please ensure you return your request slip as soon as possible. There will be two performances, an afternoon performance on Tuesday 20th March at 2pm and an evening performance on Wednesday 21st March at 5.30pm. At this moment in time we ask that you only request a maximum for 3 tickets, you'll be notified of any spare tickets nearer the time.
Shrek The Musical!
Today, Monday 12th March 2018, we all gathered in the hall to watch Shrek the musical! We also ate popcorn and ice-cream during the film. Yummy! This was a great way to experience what it would be like to visit a theatre! Tomorrow we will be writing a recount of the musical.
I just wanted to say how proud I am of all the year 4 children for their performances of 'Pirates of the Curry Bean'. The children worked their socks off other the last 2 weeks to make sure we were performance ready, they have been busy learning their lines, acting and learning those all important dance moves. Both performances were fantastic and the children should be really proud of themselves.
