War time memorabilia
A big thank you to one of our classmates for bringing in items from the war time that once belonged to one of his relatives. The children really enjoyed seeing the real life artefacts from the war time and they were full of thoughtful questions about the medals and photographs!
Techniquest Colour and Light Dome
We were really lucky to have the opportunity to have a session in the dome! The children had practical opportunities to learn all about different types of light, how light travels and the spectrum of colours in light and they were thoroughly engaged by the experience.
Welsh Cultural Week
Our Welsh Cultural Week began when the fantastic 'Tales from Wales' company visited our school for the second year on the run. The pupils absolutely loved the way that the actors brought the traditional Welsh myths and legends alive through song and drama!
The school also had a visit from a local harpist who performed a variety of beautiful pieces of music to the pupils, including traditional Welsh tunes. It was so great to find out how the harp works and some children were lucky enough to try it out!
In this months Outdoor Learning sessions we have been:
'Healthy Schools' Week
During Healthy Schools week the class took part in many different activities that highlighted the importance of being healthy and staying safe. The school also had special visits from 'Dog's Trust', 'NSPCC' and the 'Fire and Rescue' service and we learned so much valuable information!
Roald Dahl Day
For Roald Dahl Day the class read parts of 'Fantastic Mr Fox' and created brilliant 'Wanted' posters and art work linked to the story.
We have been really enjoying our Outdoor Learning sessions this month. Here are some of the things that we've been doing:
We found a time capsule!
In the first couple of weeks a letter was delivered to the school from a mystery person. Once we read the letter it became clear that it was from a person that wanted us to try and find a box they had buried somewhere near our school building, but long before the school was actually built!
So we began our search...
We had great fun trying to find clues that might lead us to discover the box...and eventually...
WE FOUND IT!
It was a muddy, rusty tin and we were so excited to find out what was inside it!
We looked at everything in the tin all together in the hall and then each class had the opportunity to explore the items in more detail.
By looking at the items we discovered that the tin must have belonged to a person that had been evacuated from Liverpool and come to live in Northop Hall during the Second World War.
Here are just a few of the things that were in the tin...
Year 4's School Council Representatives
I must say that the standard of speeches that the children gave in their elections this year were outstanding! I was impressed by every child who stood in front of the class and you should all be proud of yourselves :-)
Here are our Year 4's School Council representatives that were elected by the class.
Congratulations to the pair of you!
