SCIENCE AND OUTDOOR LEARNING WEEK 2017
On Monday 10th July the whole school are celebrating Science and Outdoor Learning week. Our teachers have planned lots of exciting activities that are linked to Science, Geography and Outdoor Learning.
During our outdoor learning week we worked in small teams to create our own dens. We were able to use a lot of our Blackrod values such as cooperation, optimism, knowledge, determination and success.
As part of our Science week we did an investigation on floating and sinking. We had to create a shape from clay that would take the longest time to sink. We then repeated this by creating a shape that would be the fastest to sink. We used to stop watches to record the times.
On Tuesday 20th June we had an Art themed day. During the day, we used red and orange to create a colour wash for our Blitz pictures. We also studied the artist Camilla Frances, evaluated some of her work and then created our own work.
CLASS ASSEMBLY -
On Thursday 27th April Year 4 performed a fantastic assembly about Liverpool. We were amazing and Mrs McGrail had a proud teacher moment.
On Friday 24th March the whole school dressed up in funny clothes. We also had to think of a funny joke to tell our class. We raised a lot of money for charity too!
WORLD BOOK DAY
Our theme for World book day was bedtime stories. We all came dressed in our pyjamas (even the teachers!) The morning started with Mr Dryburgh telling us a story from his dream jar. Then we went on a dream hunt to collect pictures to put in our own dream jars. We then started to create our own bedtime stories. On Friday we decorated our dream jars.
LOWER KEY STAGE TWO CHRISTMAS PARTY
On Friday 16th December Year 3 and 4 had their Christmas party. We had lots of dancing, tasty treats and we played games. We had a brilliant afternoon!
Children in Need
On Friday 18th November the whole school learned about the Charity Children in Need. We got to dress in our own clothes and took part in a special fitness assembly.
On Thursday 3rd November Year 4 had fun at the Halloween Disco. Look at our fantastic costumes.
