Investigating Sound!

By 0

Last week, as part of Science Week, year 4 started to investigate sound. We looked into what sound is, how we hear and how differently it travels depending on varying factors. In order to investigate this, we used a decibel reader to read different sounds around us. We estimated before recording the actual decibels.

Class 10, what was the highest decibel reading that you recorded? How can you describe the change in the sound waves dependent on the sound made? Your homework, across this week, is to explore the sounds around you at home. Can you estimate the decibel reading or record it?

Stage 1 complete!

Today we completed stage one of our Roman shields. The classroom had a lovely atmosphere… there was great teamwork, great fun and everyone enjoyed an afternoon of ‘messy’ learning! Every child had a look of happiness or concentration on their faces! What is the next stage Class 10?

The opponents… Legio X

By 2

Well done Class 10! Another wonderful week linked to our current topic ‘Revolting Romans!’ You have all produced a fantastic design for a Roman shield based on the symbolic images they held.

Today was decision day, where we all voted for our favourite designs. Our books stayed out in the corridor throughout the afternoon to allow other members of staff and children to get involved… even Mr Fallon cast his vote!




We will now look at the top four designs shown below, identifying similarities and common themes and then refine our class legion design. We can’t wait to see the end result!




Over the weekend, your homework is to begin thinking of a legion name for our class, please post ideas on this blog if you wish!

In preparation for making our life size shield, we have each made our own prototype which is scaled 1:10 to our end creation. Can you describe the process we have carried out? How did we make the ‘boss’ section in the centre?

Behind this formation stands the amazing children of Class 10 who ‘are a credit to us and our school!’
Every child participated, had fun and have learned about life back in Roman times. We are so proud of each and every one of you! See more of our journey from the day on the Seesaw Family app!

What did you enjoy about the trip today Class 10? Can you share a new fact?

Thank you again! You have been wonderful!

How the other half lived…

By 0

Today our emperors and gladiator slaves swapped roles to experience how the others lived. The emperors were served fresh, crusty bread and olives whilst they worked aswell as enjoying a few minutes extra play. The gladiator slaves served the food and had a go at making traditional Roman games with sticks and stones. Which role did you prefer and why? Can you find and share any further research on these groups of people from Roman times?

Happy 1st of December Class 10! Your Christmas calendar awaits you ready for Monday morning! 😊🎄
Each day, one of you will receive a surprise treat for all your hard work this term and for being the wonderful children you are! Along with this, you will recieve a slip with an act of Christmas kindness attached!
Christmas is a time for celebrating, having fun with our families and making memories but it is also a time to think about giving love and kindness to those around us. I wonder who the first three will be? What do you think your act of kindness will be? 😊 Can you think of acts of kindness that we could do for others at this time of year?

Pumpkin Day!

By 4

We have had such a great day in Class 10 today! This morning, parents and carers joined our class to support us in carving a pumpkin, then we completed our own pumpkin inspired artwork, made pumpkin soup and finished the day with our parents coming back in to class to see our work and taste the wonderful soup. A huge thank you to everyone who made it, it was a lovely atmosphere and great seeing the children having so much fun!

Which is your favourite pumpkin design and why?
(A big shout out to the two photographers in class today who set up a min studio too, you did a fab job!)

Have a fantastic half term everyone!

Mrs Bramall and Miss Lloyd 😊😊
