Stone Age Necklaces

As part of our Wow Day to launch the topic, ‘Who first lived in Britain?’, Year 3 designed and made Stone Age replica necklaces. First of all we looked at some photographs of Stone Age necklaces and discussed the materials that these were made from. Using these ideas as a prompt, we designed our own.

We then made our necklaces using clay. We had to make sure there were no cracks in any our pieces.

A few days later, we painted our necklaces and threaded them onto string.

Wow! We can’t believe how beautiful they look!

Team Y3/4 were so proud of the lovely way in which the children applauded winners from other schools. Imagine our delight when we discovered a CPPS sibling had won the top prize in the attendance prize draw! With @VikingFM @Hullccnews @HumberEdTrust

A couple of weeks ago the children in the school choir were lucky enough to be involved in recording a new Christmas song with Viking FMs Cash for Kids. “A Winters Dream The Thousand Voices” is now available for Pre-order and will be released on Friday 6th December. Available on Amazon Music, iTunes and Google Play. Please support the charity and our Choir by downloading the song. Our wish is that is gets to Number 1 in the charts.

Our Trip to the Streetlife Museum

Year 3 and 4 have been on trips to the Streetlife Museum this week! The purpose of our visit was to take part in a workshop called ‘A Child’s War: Evacuation’. During the day, we got evacuated to the countryside, explored a 1940’s street scene and found a bike that had been used by soldiers in WWII. We had a great day!

 

A fabulous WW2 visit to Hull Museums

We explored artefacts in the Streetlife museum, looking for items from during the war in our self guided session. We sketched some of the items that really caught our eye!

We then met Mary, she was our evacuation officer. She met us at the station, dressed us, talked about what we should expect and helped us pack a suitcase. We handled historical artefacts and discussed what the children did with them or needed them for. It was a bit of a shock to us what little they had packed! Once aboard the bus we had a tongue and hand check- luckily we were all in good health. 😝 We sang ten green bottles to entertain ourselves on the long journey to the countryside and some of us even fell asleep!

A fabulous class photo in front of the giant map down Whitefriargate. This is where the People’s Memorial Museum is- all about WW1 and WW2 and well worth a visit. The volunteers there were so knowledgable and helpful, they made us very welcome.

Being Historians

In Y3/4 we are being historians, applying our maths skills to order the many events of WW2 in our humongous timeline. we then focused in on key events which led to major developments within the war.

Fantastic team work, research and questions raised by our super Historians.

 

Violin Lessons in Year Four

This term, the Year Four pupils are lucky to have a visiting specialist Violin teacher, Mr Lynch. As well as teaching us the basics of the violin he is teaching us about genres of music and widening our knowledge of instruments.

This week we were exploring the different  sounds that the violin could make – noisy and great fun 🎼🎻
