Let the games begin!

Term 2

April 2018

Our theme is It's All Greek to Me! 

So we decided to have a Greek picnic!


We tasted olives, olive oil, pitta bread, feta cheese, houmous, yoghurt, berries and honey!

Our favourite foods were pitta bread, honey and berries. 
Olives were the least popular food! 

Trocaire -update!

Check out the video of our Waves of Tory dancing in the Gallery!

Time to program our robot...BeeBot! 

We programmed the BeeBot to dance, travel around a treasure island and a F1 racetrack! Then we went shopping!

Did you see a few mad scientists in school today?๐Ÿ”Ž

Time to put on our lab coats!

#Q1. What happens when a liquid becomes a solid?

First we carefully measured out water and

then we added it to the glue. 

Next we stirred and we stirred and we stirred!

Finally we added Borax to make SLIME! 

#Q2. Which metal is the best conductor of heat

Copper? Brass? Aluminium?

The metal that melts the chocolate first!

Did you predict the correct answer? It is Copper! 

#Q3. What slows down a moving vehicle?

What makes it travel further?

We tested the cars on carpet and Lino. The cars travelled further on the smooth Lino. The friction of the carpet stopped the car.

We tested 3 different ramp heights. The car travelling on the highest ramp went furthest but also lost control more. 


Our theme is It's All Greek to Me!

We don't know a lot about Ancient Greece

at the start of our theme but we have a lot of questions to ask!

Team 4 start by asking ...

Watch out! Medusa is about! ๐Ÿ


Our theme is Animal Magic!

Look at our chalk and charcoal animal symmetry drawings! 

A Stitch in Time - we are making animal hand puppets! 

Finally ... we are finished! Look at our amazing animal puppets!

We sorted animals for features we can see.

The sets can also overlap! 

Sorting animals is also called classifying. 

Now we will find out about MR FAB. 

M (mammals) R (reptiles)

F (fish) A (amphibians) B (birds)

We found out about the life cycle of frogs! ๐Ÿธ 

Then we made our own Jumping Frogs using a clothes peg! 

Who was the best jumper?

Can you spot the animals in our Animal Tangrams?

Odd Socks Day! 

Just like us... we are all different. And we are all equal! 

Term 1:

(September- December)

Our theme is Time to Move




We tried to arrange the toys in chronological order -

there was a lot of discussion! 

How do our toys move? 

We examined our toys to see what helps them to move. 

We can make many things move by pushing and pulling!

How many can you think of?

This is our Christmas sing-a-long! P4 sang Mrs. Santa Claus

Healthy Bodies move better!

We looked at the amount sugar we should be eating. For 7-11 years old it is 6 teaspoons (24g) per day. We looked at food labels and discovered that some foods have a lot of hidden sugar!

Sugary Drinks?

We decided to investigate the effect of sugary drinks on our teeth. 

We used eggshells as they are a similar material to the enamel on our teeth. 

We put the eggshell into the drink and waited...

It's thumbs down for Coke and Boost!

Thumbs up for water and milk. 

Do you know for how long you should brush your teeth?

2 minutes! Watch as we had a go! 

And the results? A sparkling white smile! 

Time to dress up! Fright Night Friday! 


When animals move to a warmer country it is called migration. 

We went to Castle Espie to find out more! 

Thousands of Brent geese fly from Arctic Canada

to Iceland to Strangford Lough. 

The migration map.

The geese love to eat eel grass!

How many can you name?

Our visit to Castle Espie was the best day ever!  

We have been thinking about how our bodies grow and change over time. 

We have grown since last year. So we wondered...

Who will grow the most this year?

So we measured our heights.

We will do this again in June so that we can discover who has grown the most. 

We also predicted who will grow the most ... What is your prediction?

Here we are from tallest to shortest!

Personal hygiene is a problem for Dirty Bertie! 

But not for us! We made our own handwash!

Look at our chalk Self Portraits! Miss Rooney thinks we are all artists - just like Picasso! 

We are learning about the body!

This was a difficult jigsaw- but we didn't give up! 

We love to make things that move! 

During Activity Time we enjoy a challenging game! 

We have been remembering our Baptism. Look at how much our feet have grown - these christening shoes are tiny! 

We wondered ... Who has the biggest feet in P4c? 

To find out we arranged ourselves in order of shoes size! 

Guess what we found out... the tallest children have the biggest feet! And the shortest children have the smallest feet! 


We examined a range of footwear.

We looked at the material it was made from and how this can help us to move.

Then we decided to sketch the footwear. 

We used charcoal and artist pencils (2B) ! 

Miss Rooney is very proud of us because we were able to take turns and share equipment! 

Teamwork makes the dream work! 

Grow in Love is our Religion programme. 

This month we are finding out about Jesus.

He performed many miracles. He used his hands to heal. 


We pray that we may use our hands to help others too! 

We blessed our hands. 

During October we use our hands to say the rosary. Look at our Sacred Space!
