Spring Term 1

Week 6

Class 4 have enjoyed Science week! The children have discovered that they can separate sand, stones and salt using filtration and evaporation. On Thursday they tested the properties of the samples from the different places on Alchemy Island. They tested their hardness, transparency, magnetism, electrical and heat conductivity.

Week 5

This week Class 4 have been composing their own music using the "Garageband" app on the ipads. They are creating a composition to represent their journey through a portal to the magical "Alchemy Island". I've been really impressed thus far and can't wait for the finished results.

Newspaper Reports by Year 4

One of our pupils brought in a very interesting collection of old photographs of the different collieries in Elsecar. Included were some photos of King George V visiting Elsecar Colliery in 1912. Whilst Year 5 had their Enterprise Day, the Year 4s researched this event and wrote their own newspaper reports using word. They created text boxes, inserted pictures and wrote their own text.
