Football Tournament

JunePosted by Year 4 - Maple and Sycamore Thu, June 28, 2018 16:45:22
St John’s took part in a World Cup themed football tournament at Selwood run by IG Sports. Both teams played 3 group games with St John’s A losing 1 and drawing 2 which included a goal by Seba and St John’s B won 2 and lost 1 with goals from Gabe 3, Xavi, Fred 2, Sophie, Stan and Lucas. Both teams made it to the quarter finals. Unfortunately St John’s A losing but St John’s B winning a dramatic sudden death penalty shoot out 8-7. However, they missed out on reaching the final, losing 1-0 to Berkley in the semis.
Congratulations and well done to all who took part. The moment of the day was at the end when Lucas said....You only lose when you quit....we may have lost but the children certainly didn’t quit. They showed true sportsmanship throughout.

Quad Kids Athletics

Today, in glorious sunshine, 16 Year 4s went to Oakfield to take part in the Quad Kids Athletics competition. In teams of 8, they took part in throwing, jumping, a 50m sprint and a 400m run. They were joined by other first schools from Frome. Points are awarded for distance jumped and thrown and for time when running, it’s wasnt all about finishing first.
We all had a great time. Results were still to be declared, but will be reported once known.

This term our value is Perseverance. In our Key Stage 2 Collective Worship, we talked about what it means and that sometimes it is easy to give up and not try. To show this, we tried to make butter using cream and a jam jar. We had to shake it for a minute before passing it on. Whilst this was happening we heard a traditional tale called “The frog that fell into the jug of Cream”.
The shaking of the jar continued in each class throughout the day.
If you would like to try this at home here is a link
however, there are many more.

Sound Survey

JunePosted by Year 4 - Maple and Sycamore Fri, June 08, 2018 08:21:42
This week in Science, we started to learn about sound and how sound is made. We learnt that sound is caused by vibrations. We did a number of experiments throughout the afternoon, such as using a tuning fork and putting it in water, putting rice on a drum and hitting and feeling our throat as we said ahh. We also did a sound survey around the school. We sat in various places and listened to all the different sounds we could hear. Staying quiet proved difficult for some of us!

Bridge Blunders
This week in science club we had to come up with a design for a bridge using only paper and sticky tape. We then tested our designs to see which bridge was the strongest.

Traffic survey

As part of our work on interpreting data, Maple class conducted a survey to find out what was the most popular colour car to pass outside of our school. We then represented our collected data in a bar chart. Our data showed that silver cars past by our school most often.

One day a little girl called Noola was playing in her garden,but then the weather changed dramatically.There was a big storm.It was raining tacos!Noola opened her mouth,but sadly she was allergic to lettuce.A taco with lettuce inside fell into her mouth.She was rushed to the hospital,where she was given egg flavoured medcine.She didn't like the taste of it,so she puked.She was given more medcine,so she ran away.A bunch of horses that had eaten chilli tacos charged her!Noola rode a ginger one home,where she killed and ate the poor animal.

I was about to go out on my mini rocker witch is a type of bmx . But then the weather changed dramatically so I could not go out because it rained fidget spinners , so it hurt my head . I was not happy and I was. I was not because I could not go out because the fidget spinners hurt me . Yes because I could keep loads of fidget spinners so know all the fidget spinners were gone I could play outside. As it stopped raining fidget spinners I went to play on my mini rocker outside to do some stunts . I said " can I go to a pump track ." They said " yes. " My dad had ago he showed me his tricks to learn.
