A Haiku poem originates from Japan. It consists of three lines.

What if it never ever rained again?

In class we are learning about The Water Cycle. We had an interesting discussion about what would happen if rain didn’t exist. Talk about this with your parents and add a comment about what you think would happen. You could give some advantages and disadvantages of life without rain…. I am looking forward to reading them!

Year 4 investigated how sound travels and enjoyed making string telephones. Using the iPads, they carried out research about Alexander Graham Bell. They also wrote fantastic poems based on ‘The Sound Collector’ by Roger McGough. What a busy week with lots of wonderful learning!

Playing the Viola

On Tuesday afternoon the children played the Viola in a performance for the parents. They have only been playing since September and it was amazing to see how well they performed and how much they have progressed in such a short space of time. Well done Year 4.

Parents, what did you think of the performance?

Water Pollution Poems

We have been reading The Iron Woman and we have just discovered that she is living in polluted water alongside many animals. She now wants to save them from harm and has asked Lucy for her help.

We decided it would be a good idea to persuade the world to reduce water pollution and we have written our own poems. What do you think of our poems?
