Year 4 Home Learning 19.10.18

In science, we have been learning all about sound! Over the half term, think about everything you have learnt about volume, pitch and how sound travels and design your own pair of super protective (and of course stylish) ear defenders. You will need to do some research on which materials work best for muffling sound. When you return from half term, we will continue our research and be making prototypes of your designs.

Science and Sound 18.10 The Rock Stars of the world need your help!

Home Learning – Water Use Survey

Your challenge for half term is to investigate how much water is being used in your house. Look at the table we have given you and fill it the boxes. You will need to put your maths hats on and ask your families to join in so that you don’t miss anything.

We would also like you to continue practising your times and divisions tables and spend at least half an hour reading every day.

The School Council visit to the Houses of Parliament

council 2 3

On Wednesday 17th October 2018, the new Holbeach School Council went to the Houses of Parliament for a tour of the building and to see how democracy works.

First, we got on the train at Catford Bridge stations and got off at Waterloo East. Then we walked all the way to the Houses of Parliament, via St Thomas’s hospital and past the London Eye.

We met our tour guide and went though the security; it was really cool. In the security check, we had to walk through a special door way that beeped and booped as you went through.

Once we were inside, we watched a film about the history of the Houses of Parliament which was very interesting. Then we went to the ‘Robing Room’ which is where the Queen gets into their robes when there is a special ceremony like the opening of parliament. We walked through to the ‘Monarch Gallery’ which is where portraits of all the Kings and Queens of England (and their husbands and wives) are displayed.

Next, we went into the House of Lords. There were lots of red seats everywhere. The seats were covered in velvety leather. We walked to the ‘Central Lobby’ and watched a parade of people that work in the House of Commons, which included the speaker, the person in charge of security and the representatives of Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. Then we went to the ‘Chapel’ and looked around.

After all that, we went to the Westminster Hall and our tour guide left us and we met with our local Member of Parliament (MP) which is Janet Daby. We discussed what we wanted to change for Lewisham and told her that we wanted big speed signs around the school to tray and limit the traffic to 20 miles per hour.

Finally, we caught the train back to school. Phew! What a great day.

Pumpkin Soup!

Last week, we read the book ‘Pumpkin Soup’ by Helen Cooper:

/th?id=OPE.NhEbM3Go3GMIdQ300C300&pid=21.1We were worried about the Duck, who ran away from home after the Squirrel and the Cat upset him. We wrote notes to encourage him to come home and drew maps to help him find his way home:

IMG_7161 IMG_7162 IMG_7163 IMG_7164 IMG_7165

We strengthened our motor skills and had fun investigating pumpkins; hammering golf tees into them and scooping out the seeds!

IMG_3365 IMG_3367 IMG_3371 IMG_3372 IMG_3373 IMG_3375 IMG_3379

We then made our own Pumpkin Soup. The pumpkin was very tough to chop!

After it was cooked, we all had our own cup of soup. Some of us loved it, and some of us didn’t like the taste of it!

It was a big thumbs up from Mrs Canaj and Mrs Fitzpatrick!
