Year 4 have been learning about Abba songs in music. They have looked at similarities and differences between Abba's Mamma Mia and Dancing Queen, what instruments are in both songs and how the songs differ structurally. The children have also been practicing to perform Mamma Mia.
It was Harvest festival at St Peter's and St Paul's today and the whole school walked to church to give thanks. Year 4 performed a Harvest character sketch based on Camille Pissarro's painting "The Harvest".
Year 4 learnt about the Jewish festival of Sukkot today which is currently being celebrated all over the world. Jewish people build Sukkahs (booths or tabernacles) to remember their journey to Israel after escaping slavery in Egypt. The children built our own class Sukkah and enjoyed a light meal of a sweet under its open roof.
Year 4 had the opportunity to visit BeSpace today which has been set up in the library. Children thought about how they pray before visiting the Sorry Sands tent where they could write about things they are sorry for and wipe them away. Then, they made models of things they want to say Thank you for. After that, they considered where God could help in Our World and finally they wrote on post-its what they would like in the Please tent and sent them to god via a bubble tube.
