Well done to Class 4 for all the effort you put into the ‘Artistic Influence’ homework projects. Your projects were colourful, informative, creative and very engaging!

I enjoyed them all thoroughly.


Class 4 are inspired by Flotsam

4 comments Written on May 18th, 2017

A bright, science-minded boy goes to the beach equipped to collect and examine flotsam—anything floating that has been washed ashore. Bottles, lost toys, small objects of every description are among his usual finds. But there’s no way he could have prepared for one particular discovery: a barnacle-encrusted underwater camera, with its own secrets to share . . . and to keep.

Class 4 have been exploring Flotsam by David Weisner. After creating our own pictures taken on the camera, we threw the camera back into the water and described the journey of the camera. We included ambitious adjectives, adverbs and exciting punctuation to support our journey descriptions.

We hope you enjoy our Flotsam displays.


Class 4 shine at the Easter Cathedral Service

Class 4, your Easter service at Southwark Cathedral was absolutely incredible. Throughout all the rehearsals you listened to the guidance carefully and were so enthusiastic. This was very clear during the Easter service where you told the Easter story beautifully. Every word could be heard and every face could be seen! Thank you and a huge well done from Miss Hatherley and Margaret.

We knew you’d shine like superstars. We couldn’t be any prouder of you.


Class 4 love being scientists!

During Science week, we experienced many areas of science. We explored properties of materials, guessing what was in different boxes by listening to sounds and feeling the weight of the materials. We predicted what was in each box – paperclips were particularly hard to predict, because they are smooth and light metal.

We also carried out an experiment to diffuse skittles. We added cold and hot water to skittles. The results were staggering, look at the colour patterns created! The hot water almost dissolved the skittles! We learnt about two processes happening – the colour and the sugar dissolved into the water and then defused through the water.

We had a morning with Professor Wizz Kid, who taught us all about forces – we even made our own paper aeroplanes to experience the different forces.

Throughout the week, we linked our learning to different areas of the curriculum – we wrote persuasive letters to Skittles, explaining how much sugar is in Skittles and how bad this is for our teeth. We also wrote instructions on how to find out how much sugar is in skittles.

A fun-packed week of Science!


Class 4 visit a world beneath the sea

Class 4 had a workshop with professionals from The Old Vic theatre today. The children’s work focused on a play that they will be watching in the near future called ‘The Lost Light’ at The Old Vic. The children explored a world of different sounds and where travelling through the sea involved a whole new imaginative world.

This also linked to our Book Week text, Flotsam by David Wiesner – where a camera travels and explores a wondrous and magical world under the sea.

Excellent work today Class 4!


Happy Book Day

Well done for a fantastic effort Class 4! You all look wonderful in your outfits. The fantasy setting descriptions you have written, following your work on the book Flotsam (David Wiesner), has been super.

You used excellent imaginative adverbs and adjectives with sentences of exciting varying length.

We will create a wonderful display with your work, to brighten up the class room.

Wow, Class 4, you really did have a BAD HAIR DAY today. It was wonderful to see though and well done for raising so much money for Great Ormond Street Hospital.

Well done for continuing to work so hard this term and for giving Miss Hatherley and Margaret a bright day, every day.

Have a relaxing and healthy half term


Class 4 visit The Old Vic Theatre

We were so lucky to visit The Old Vic Theatre and have a tour of the auditorium.

We learnt about the importance of speaking clearly on stage, so that you can be heard no matter where you are sitting. We also learnt about the history of the theatre.

We were so lucky to be a part of a workshop to design a stage setting for a production of Hansel and Gretel, we really hope the director gets inspiration from our designs!

Feedback any interesting facts that you learnt at the theatre Class 4.


Class 4 flourish during Arts Week !

The school focused on Landscapes during Arts Week. We decided to create desert landscape scenes. We used tissue paper and coloured cellophane to create our scenes, focusing on techniques to create different effects. We considered the skyline, backdrop and features that are linked to a desert.

We hope you like the striking colours that we chose for our scenes, we felt that they showed the heat and brightness of the desert.   We also tried to layer our work, so that the features of the desert are in the foreground and the skyline is in the distance.


Class 4 visit Lambeth CLC and create their own moving robots!

Class 4 had an excellent trip to Lambeth CLC today. Class 4 focused on team work and perseverance when building their own lego robots. The children had to carefully follow instructions to build their designs and then create a programme on Scratch to make the robot move and rotate over different times and powers.

Blubelle said: ‘I really enjoyed building robot models.’

Imran said: ‘I loved making my model move.’

Class 4, please comment on anything that you learnt on the trip. Well done for an excellent session at CLC.
