Pitch Perfect!

Today, Year 4 enjoyed a visit to Marlborough Road Methodist Church to meet with Liz and Mark from St Peter’s Church to learn about how Christians remember the events of Holy Week in church today. We learnt about what happens at Holy Communion and why. Year 4 were very thoughtful and asked some really challenging questions.

In maths this week we have been calculating with decimals, using our formal addition and subtraction methods. We have then applied this to money.

This week in English, we have been using the work we did last week on our emotive poetry as inspiration to write instructions on how to care for an animal. It has been interesting to see what a day in the life of a zoo keeper may look like and what commands they would need to follow.

In science, we investigated how to alter the pitch of sound by making our own pan pipes. We cut straws to different lengths and noticed which would give us a low note and which would give us a high note.

We have been busy designing our omelettes, ready for cooking them next week. Some of the ingredients chosen include, cheese, ham, pepperoni, pepper and tomatoes. Watch this space!

We hope you have a lovely weekend
