4DM Class Liturgy - Friday 8th April 2022

Today we had a class liturgy to celebrate the friendships we have in class and to celebrate the many happy memories the children share of Elsa.

In preparation for the liturgy the children learnt a liturgical dance to the song ‘Testify to love.’  The children were fabulous: they were respectful, active participants and danced and sang beautifully.

 

Below is a video of the children performing their liturgical dance.

Roman Day - March 2022

The children received a visit from a Roman Centurion who gave them a detailed insight into the life of a Roman soldier, he also put them through their paces in Day 1 of their training.

The children also had the opportunity to learn how to play a Roman game and to make their own clay oil lamp.  They also had time to examine replica artefacts: looking at the materials used, design and purpose of each item.

 

The xylospongium (sponge on a stick) caused quite a stir when the children realised what it was used for!

Science Week

What a fantastic start to the week! We thoroughly enjoyed our Chemistry based workshop, with Professor Harry from Sublime Science.  He taught us all about polymers and how to bond them together with a starch solution, resulting in slime!

We had great fun to see whose slime could stretch the most.

World Book Day - March 2022 

Roman Projects - February 2022


Mount Vesuvius erupts,

The children across Year 4 had a fabulous time showcasing their individual Roman projects to the class. We had a wide range of projects, which included:  art work, sewing skills, baking, herb growing, mosaics, models and erupting volcanoes! 

We were amazed at the knowledge they shared with one another and the questions they asked. Their enthusiasm shone through. 

Ice Skating December 2021

We were lucky to secure tickets at Millenium Square to receive an ice-skating lesson.  During the session we learnt how to successfully get up off the ice, how to move and how to stop.

The children showed a lot of grid and determination to keep going regardless of the number of tumbles they took. It was a successful lesson and great fun!

Skipping Workshop January 2022

4CC’s Training session

4DM’s Training Session

The children had a fun-filled morning with Chris from Skipping School Limited.  Chris introduced the children to a range of individual skipping skills and group skips using a long rope.  The skills tested the children’s co-ordination, balance, memory and stamina.

Following on from the workshop we have come together as a year group to practise and the children have been practising hard to develop their skipping skills during break and lunch time.

Later in the year, a team from Year 4 will represent school at the Leeds Catholic Partnership Competition. Watch this space...
