The Rainforest Project
For homework, year 4 were tasked to create a 3D diorama of a rainforest.
World Museum Trip
Year 4 visited the World Museum. We were archaeologists in the Anglo Saxon workshop and looked at a range of everyday artefacts and clothing. We found out interesting facts about the Rainforest which we will use in the information books that we are writing in English lessons.
We had so much fun on our adventure holiday! Enjoy the photos children.
Chilling out in the sun!
We went to the School's Epiphany Service 'Arise and Shine' at the Anglican cathedral.
The Dean of Liverpool, the very Reverend Dr Pete Wilcox talked to us about the word 'Epiphany' which means 'realisation' as the kings 'realised' that Jesus was God's son. He asked us to think about this and to 'realise' how important Jesus is in our lives.
We enjoyed singing carols, listening to a choir with amazing soloists and watching Caspar, Melchior and Balthazar take Gold, Frankincense and Myrrh to Jesus.
Year 4 studied the 'Snow Queen' text in the Autumn term as part of our Literacy work on 'Stories from fantasy settings' so it was lovely to watch the brilliant performance by Tempest Theatre. Here is the story and photos of the magical performance.
2000 years ago a troll and a wizard made an evil mirror with spirits inside and
when people looked in it, it made them look really ugly. One day, this mirror was
smashed and the pieces fell down to Earth.
2000 years later, a girl (Gerda) and her mother find two boys( Kay and his friend)
alone in the freezing cold. Kay and Gerda become friends and often play
together. One day Kay and Gerda are talking about the Snow Queen. During that
night the Snow Queen comes and when Kay comes to the window, she throws a
piece of the broken mirror into Kays’ eye. The next day Kay becomes horrible
and nasty. One day, when playing, Kay is tempted away by the Snow Queen and
taken to her ice palace. Gerda’s journey to find the ice palace and Kay begins.
With the help of a raven she escapes a witch in an enchanted garden and
continues her journey.
Safely away from the witch, Gerda and the raven travel to a palace where she
thinks her beloved Kay is. She bursts into a room thinking Kay is inside but it is
another boy, a prince, who is getting married. She stays with the royal family until
the day when she gets into the carriage and is driven off in search of Kay again.
The gold from the carriage attracts the robbers. The coach is stopped and
Gerda’s is ambushed. A kind robber maiden rescues her and she is taken to their
den. Gerda is allowed to take the maiden’s reindeer and Gerda once again
continues her search.
Gerda wakes up in the Finland lady’s hut and she leads her to the Laplander’s
igloo who is said to know the way to the Snow Queen’s palace. The Laplander
gives Gerda a magic potion and she is transported to the ice palace. Inside the
Snow Queen is waiting for her, whilst Kay lays motionless beside her a battle
commences. Through Gerda’s love for Kay, she defeats the Snow Queen and
Kay and Gerda return home safely to mother.
Year 4 have been creating peaceful landscape pictures using watercolours.
