This week, the children of P4S presented their class assembly on the theme of Creation to their parents and their school friends in P1-4. This was a vert special occasion as it was the first time a special assembly has been held in Hart Memorial since the Covid outbreak. The children’s performance was excellent. They sang beautifully and are to be commended on how well they learnt all their words. They made their teacher and CA very proud. Well done to everyone.

This week it is our turn to litter pick around the school grounds so we headed out this afternoon. It was fun to use the litter picking sticks so the children were actually disappointed to find such a small amount of rubbish in our school grounds, just the odd tissue and bit of plastic. Well done Hart Memorial pupils for keeping our school grounds so clean and tidy.

As part of our WAU topic (Trees) we have been growing seeds. This week we planted cress seeds. The children predicted  that it would take 2 months for them to sprout so they were shocked and delighted to see little seedlings within 48 hours. We also did a science investigation to find out the conditions needed to make seeds grow. We found out that they need water, light and warmth. The children were amazed to see that seeds which sprouted in the dark produced very pale and weak seedlings.

Today we enjoyed a visit from the Baptist Church. We had an amazing journey through the bible and met two well known characters, Rahab and Thomas. The children were also given the opportunity to dress up in biblical costumes and taste food from bible times. They were also presented with a section of God’s special book, the Bible.

This morning we went on a nature walk to look for signs of autumn as part of our work on our WAU topic which is TREES this term. The children had a real fun time and found acorns, beech nuts, conkers and some interesting fungi. We went back to school to plant our seeds in cut down plastic containers. The seeds are now sleeping in their winter beds ready to start sprouting in the spring.

P4S recently took part in an online lesson to improve their coding skills. The theme was ‘Space’ and we learnt how to make our astronaut and rocket move about on the space backgrounds. We then used our skills to animate a story with speech bubbles. We had great fun and learnt lots.

Today we took our learning outside. The children thoroughly enjoyed measuring natural objects in the outdoors. We measured twigs, stones, flowers and much more. Last week we also had fun using our number bonds to play a dice game. We used calculators too. We have come to the conclusion that ......... MATHS IS FUN!
