Countryside Live – Year 4 Trip

What an exciting day we have had at the countryside live day at the Great Yorkshire Showground! We have been learning about animals, farming, sustainability and much more at this exciting event.

The day kicked off with the sheep show, which was both very eye opening as well as entertaining, as we got to see a sheep get sheared as well as them busting a few moves for us at the end. We then walked over the countryside arena where we saw a sheep dog in action. This was really quite something.

For the rest of the day we split off into our smaller groups to try an array of different activities including potato growing, making rag rugs, rivers and landscapes, wood science, recycling, pet education and more!

Take a look at our awesome pictures:

Platinum Jubilee

On Tuesday, it was ACE’s turn to celebrate the the Queen’s platinum jubilee. For this historic event, we had a whole school picnic on the field with a range of activities to take part in. Not only did all the children have a lovely picnic on the grass, but they had the opportunity to take part in tug-of-war, skipping, nature collages, outdoor reading, cricket and more!

It was a very memorable occasion and 4K would like to say a big thank you to all of the staff involved in the big event, especially the lunchtime staff for preparing all the lunches, the site team for organising the chairs, tables and decorations and the parent helpers who came along to help with serving drinks.

Make Your Own Kind of Music – Paloma Faith

Lyrics – Please learn these by Tuesday 26th May 2022

Nobody can tell ya
There’s only one song worth singing
They may try and sell ya
‘Cause it hangs them up
To see someone like you

But you gotta make your own kind of music
Sing your own special song
Make your own kind of music
Even if nobody else sings along

You’re gonna be nowhere
The loneliest kind of lonely
It may be rough going
Just to do your thing’s the hardest thing to do

But you gotta make your own kind of music
Sing your own special song
Make your own kind of music
Even if nobody else sings along

So if you cannot take my hand
And if you must be going, I will understand

You gotta make your own kind of music
Sing your own special song
Make your own kind of music
Even if nobody else sings along

You gotta make your own kind of music
Sing your own kind of song
Make your own kind of music
Even if nobody else sings along

Performance video coming next week!!

R.E: What does Pentecost mean to Christians?

This term we have been exploring the celebration of Pentecost. What is it and what is means to Christians. To begin this topic we thought about the Feast of Pentecost and how this spread the messages of God around the world.

For those who are not familiar with Penetcost, this is when it is celebrated:

The Christian holiday of Pentecost is celebrated on the 50th day from Easter Sunday. It commemorates the descent of the Holy Spirit upon the Apostles and other followers of Jesus Christ while they were in Jerusalem celebrating the Feast of Weeks, as described in the Acts of the Apostles.

As part of this unit, the children have been looking at Pentecost artwork and are now in the process of designing some of their own based on some the symbols we have found within this unit.

Here are some pictures of the children in action:

Non-chronological reports about fantasy sea creatures

4K have been producing fabulous pieces of work all year round and we were really excited when we found out we would be publishing their most recent piece of work. To finish off our ‘Blue Planet’ writing unit, 4K produced a fabulous information text about a made up sea creature. 4K showed off their imaginations when creating their own sea creature on Pic Collage and coming up with some fabulous facts about the creatures’ appearance, habitats, diet and behaviour. After writing their final piece, we spent some time editing and perfecting our work. Finally, we wrote up our piece in neat and created a double page spread filled with colour and wonderful diagrams. Check out the final product below. Here you can see the work of Shangen, Achilles, Fahad, Jasdeep and Ivy:

Great work 4K!
