Football Tournament June

Posted 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.

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.

Perseverance June

Posted by Year 4 - Maple and Sycamore Fri, June 08, 2018 09:17:26

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 SurveyJune

Posted 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!
