Pied Piper

Council Webmaster (schoolcouncil) on: Year 4 Blog

In English, we have been learning about the Pied Piper.  We created our own versions of the story.  To do this, we had to create our own character.  We had Danny the Drummer, Violet the Violinist and Katie the Keyboard Player.  We used fronted adverbials, amazing adjectives and powerful verbs in our writing.  Head to Year 4 if you want to read our fantastic stories!

In Science, we have been learning about sound.  We learnt about Alexander Graham Bell.  We know that he invented the telephone.  We had a go at making our own telephones! We really enjoyed testing them out! We have also completed an investigation about vibrations.  It has been a really interesting topic.

All About Aborignal paintings....

Council Webmaster (schoolcouncil) on: Year 4 Blog

In Year 4 we have been painting pictures similar to Aboriginal art. The equipment we have been using included cotton buds and paint. We made our paintings by drawing the animal first and then started painting with a paintbrush. The cotton buds were for making little dots.

We all painted a Salamander.

They look a lot like mosaics!

A Happy Day....

Council Webmaster (schoolcouncil) on: Year 4 Blog

Yesterday we went to Burnley Campus to learn about new things like drumming, morris dancing, Bollywood dancing and we made flowers that we could dye.

In Morris dancing we had to dance with sticks and go into groups of four. We danced in a circle to live music being played by a person with a long beard. Also we had to listen to the person who was dancing and follow his instructions.

Some of us did Bollywood dancing and we watched them at the end. Some people watched Morris dancing too.

We made flowers with blue, cream and white toilet paper and pinned them around the middle of the pole.

It was a fantastic day!

Dream Catchers

Council Webmaster (schoolcouncil) on: Year 4 Blog

 

In year 4, we made dream catchers that get rid of nightmares. We designed them to our liking. We also sewed them with cotton and hard wool. Then, when we have finished we are allowed to take them home. This week in marsden it is art week and everyday in the afternoon we do art, and on the 15th and 16th of June our parents came in to learn with us.
