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!

By 2

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?

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?

Emperors and Gladiators

By 1

Today we started our brand new topic!

We were each asked to pick a ticket out of a box. On it was written either ‘Gladiator’ or ‘Emperor’.

Then we had to stay in role all morning!

Gladiators had to wash the Emperor’s hands then make wrist bands with long threads to hold on to by the other Gladiators.

The Emperors made themselves laurel headbands to wear. They were allowed extra playtime and got treats such as drinks and sweets!

 

We all had a great first morning back. Well done to everyone for getting involved and staying in character. Here’s to a great term.

Happy December Class 10! 🎄

By 6

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?
