Ultimate Dodgeball! 

This morning was the dodgeball game! Year 4 children competed against the Year 3 children. Wow! All teams were fantastic at dodging, throwing and catching! Well done everyone! 

Art Festival! 

We have been very busy the last couple of weeks preparing for the Art Festival! We have made dream catchers, totem poles, headdresses, created drawings and patterns. This was all in relation to Native Americans. The overall look was absolutely fantastic! Thank you to parents, family and friends who came along to admire our amazing art work! 

Visit To Ormiston! 

Today we visited Ormiston Ilkeston Enterprise Academy to work with the Year 10 children. They provided us with many fun activities learning French and German! 

Geography Week! 

For geography week, we have been busy looking at different types of food and drink. We have been learning about where in the world these foods and drinks come from. We have looked at which foods and drinks are exported and which are imported. It has been very interesting and exciting to discuss all of this! It has been great to learn new facts that we didn’t know before! 

We have also learnt that Coca-Cola is the most popular soft drink in every country, except for Scotland! Can you find out which soft drink is the most popular in Scotland?

Super Scientists! 

On Tuesday 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 looked at the amount of energy different crisps contain. This meant that we were able to have a go at using bunsen burners, as well as wearing special goggles. This was very exciting!

Democracy Day

As part of Democracy Day we discussed what democracy is and we also watched a short video to give us some more information about it. We then worked in groups to create our own political party. During the afternoon we were visited by a local councillor who talked about democracy. Then, we all had the opportunity to visit the polling station to vote for a change in the school day! After this, in our groups, we presented our Manifesto that we created earlier on this morning. Today has been a very fun and exciting day!

Problem Solving! 

Today we have used our maths skills to complete a number challenge! We had to place numbers 0-9 into a pattern but we had to make sure that no two consecutive numbers were next to each other in any direction! We had to see how many different orders we could make. This was tricky but it certainly got our brains working! 

Parents - Take a look at the worksheet in the slideshow below to see if you can take on the challenge!
