Half-term Round Up

Congratulations Class 4 on reaching the end of the half-term, you have worked incredibly hard and have learnt about many things. We have had many highs, it has been great learning about mountains (my favourite part was your art work! As well as our map guide books). After the half-term break we are going to be focusing our learning on Volcanoes and Earthquakes.

Therefore I have a challenge for you over the half-term break:

Homework: Your task over half term is to create your own volcano and make it erupt. You can create it however you like: one idea might be a 2L bottle which you can paper mache. The pictures below may help you with your design. To make it erupt there are two ways I know: one involves adding vinegar to food colouring and bicarbonate of soda. The other involves adding Mentos sweets to Coca-Cola. I look forward to seeing your designs. Please add these along with videos of you blowing it up to seesaw.

Quick and Clarke Hornsea: Window Display!

I am very excited to announce that Quick and Clarke Hornsea are supporting our World Bee Day Project. Quick and Clarke have not only presented us with a very generous donation they have also decided to support and promote our project by designing a new window display! Personally, I think it looks amazing! In addition to their very kind donation and promotion of our project they will be giving out free packets of seeds to visitors to the branch (2 Market Place, Hornsea) to help support bee habitats.

I am really hoping that as many of the Brandesburton community as possible are able to visit the branch to see this fabulous piece of artwork! You could even take a selfie and bring it into to school for me to share on the blog!

Take care

Mr Mallison

Homework 7.5.2021

Hello Class 4,

A massive thank you to all of the children who handed in their homework from last week on time. I really enjoyed reading your letters to Little Red Riding Hood. Hopefully, my explanation of the maths homework in school today helped with your understanding, I certainly found it easier to explain in person rather than on Seesaw.

Your homework for this week can be found once again on Seesaw:

Reading: We have spent a lot of time in school recently developing our inference skills and I would like you to continue this work at home with the task on Seesaw, which hopefully you will enjoy. Note to parents and guardians – the art to the children responding is for them to make plausible answers based upon what they can see in the picture and from the information in the text.

Maths: I have set separate yer group maths homework on Seesaw.

If you have any questions do not hesitate to speak to me in school.

Please ensure you submit your homework by 13.5.21

Class 4 – Speak live on BBC Radio Humberside

BBC Radio Humberside - BBC Radio Humberside Rewind

The secret is out!

This morning three of our children spoke to Amanda White as part of the Sally Fairfax breakfast show to promote our World Bee Day project as part of our careers curriculum (photos to follow).

Each class has been issued with £10 to improve the school site. Class 4 decided that they wanted to have a lasting impact that would come back every year even after the children eventually leave Brandesburton Primary School. The children were also aware that World Bee Day is on 20th May and that Bees are struggling yet they are really important for the environment for pollenating. Therefore, we decided that we wanted to plant lots of bulbs and bee friendly plants in the school grounds to attract more bees and to help them.

We know that £10 doesn’t go very far, so we were hoping that the local community could help us and bees through match funding.

How it works:

  • We are asking local businesses to either donate £10 or purchase the equivalent cost of bulbs or plants.
  • If possible we would like to plant half of the donated bulbs or plants on our site and then for you to plant the other half at your site, however we are willing to plant all bulbs and plants at our site it you don’t have anywhere.
  • With the aim of creating a beacon for Bees within the Humberside Radio area to help the environment.
