On the last afternoon of the Autumn Term the children watched a pantomime called Treasure Island.  The panto was performed by a professional touring group who performed the panto in the school hall.

The children throughly enjoyed the panto which included plenty of audience participation, as you can see below – he’s behind you!!

Year 4 children are currently taking part in a very exciting project with Salford Music and Performing Arts Service (MAPAS). This service is dedicated to ‘raising standards’ and ‘maximising the potential’ of young people within the city of Salford. Year four children have each been given a Brass or Woodwind instrument to learn this year, to form a class orchestra. Our instruments include the Flute, Clarinet, Cornet and the Trombone.

As part of our Science topic this term, Year 4 have been looking at local habitats. Children designed and made bird feeders to attract more wildlife to our local habitiat. All term, Year 4 children have been observing a range of birds visiting our School. Half the fun of feeding the birds was figuring out what their names were!

After lunch we even sorted out our rubbish and recycled as much as we could. 

We carried out weather experiments to find out the wind speed, direction and temperature. Later on we used this information to write and film our own weather reports.
