Welcome to Fountains 2019 - 2020
Fountains have begun their Mission topic with investigative science skills looking at how solids, liquids and gases work. We are also enjoying our class focus book, 'The Firework Maker's Daughter' and have produced some dramatic descriptions for our White Gold writing as well as some superb sketches of the setting for our book. Parents be prepared to be wowed when you come into class for Parents' Evening!
Our story of Ruth freeze frames in our R.E Topic 'People'.
In the Pit Sense project, Fountains learnt about Askern Colliery and worked together to create an information board. They researched on the internet and completed their own half and half sketches.
Fountains loved completing the orienteering course and finding out more about the different collieries!
Summer Term 2019
Fountains took part in a special careers event at Doncaster Sheffield Airport. The children had talks from the mayor of Sheffield, fire fighters, air traffic controllers and many more. Two lucky pupils also had the important role of unveiling the new sign on the Airport’s terminal. We even finished the morning off with an ice cream!
Spring Term 2019
This Term our school topic is Passion. In Fountains, we are focusing on the passionate people involved in World War Two. We have created our own WW2 timelines, propaganda posters, skyline silhouettes and drawn famous leaders. Our class book is 'Perry Angel's Suitcase' and we have used the book to inspire our own letter writing and Winston Churchill biographies.
In science, we have been learning about electricity and we now know what it is, how to use it safely, what conductors and insulators are and we have even made our own switches! We have set up practical enquiries, made predictions and recorded and reported on findings.
In Music, we have started to learn about poetry, including rap. Have a listen to our rap so far...
Autumn Term 2018
This term our school topic is Moments. In Fountains, we are looking at different moments in The Shang Dynasty. We have made our own Shang Dynasty timelines and created Oracle bones.
Our class book is 'The Firework Maker's Daughter' and we have used the book to inspire our setting descriptions, non-chronological reports and Haiku poems. Using the book we have also created volcanoes, firework art and our own firework dances!
Our Year 4 class represented the school at the Cenotaph in Denaby to commemorate the Remembrance Day Centenary.
