Spanish club enjoyed their last afterschool Spanish lesson by listening to tradition Spanish music and sampling delicious foods. Here is what they thought:
'I enjoyed the Olives the best, usually I don't like them but these green ones were great'
'I tried the Spanish omelette but I didn't like it'
'The bread dipped in oil and Balsamic was surprising, I told my parents about it'
'The Spanish breadsticks were so good'
' I didn't like the look of the Manchego but it was yummy'
'The gallettas were really crumbly and delicious dipped in chocolate'
'The smell of the churros cooking was sooo good!'
We hope you have a super weekend,
Team Year 4
So much to share: Local Dartmoor Walk, Science meets Art and Art from around the world ... scroll on down!
Triple Stone Row: Year 4 had a wonderful walk from our very own doorstep to the Triple Row just beneath Cawsand (also known as Cosdon). We were told super tales of times gone by Charles Scott including information about granite splitting using feather and wedges, burial chambers and blocking gates to keep spirits out at the base of the row. We were blessed with the weather and got through many re-fills of water on the way.
In Science, we have been looking at Living Things and their habitats, this week we had a closer look at the animals and used our sketching skills and sketch books to pay close attention to the intricate detail of the animals in our local area by learning an enlargement technique.
Mrs White is teaching Art skills through a variety of artists local and further afield, this weeks artist is called Faye Akassa who is a gifted sand artist from Senegal, West Africa. We used powder paint and sand and then glue to create the effect. Fantastic vibrant result!
In Science this week, after discussing what living things are and what habitats are, we took to the grounds to search for living things in their habitats. We carefully looked under leaves, logs, bricks etc... and we found a multitude of wildlife; all of which were looked at in petri dishes, before being carefully placed back where they had been found. We found spiders, millipedes, snails, slugs and even ants moving what looked to be eggs away from our eagle eyes.
We then went over to inspect the willow dome and EXCITINGLY, more of the willow is now shooting, hurray! We cannot wait to start weaving the dome to make it a truely living shelter.
We also took part in an Ocra sporting event which involved long jump, javelin, sprint and two laps around the field. Incredible fitness and sportsmanship shown. Well done.
We wish you all a super weekend.
