Our very first brass lesson!

Today 4.2 have had their very first brass lesson. We got to practice our use of pitch, beat and buzz and have a go at using our mouthpieces. 
After a good practice we got our own instruments and tried our hand at playing a C.
Macie said she liked the brass lesson because "it was very exciting and we can now practice our instruments so that we can play them beautifully!"
Adam added that he enjoyed learning how to create a sound with the instrument. He said he found it "very easy!"
Dwayne admitted that he found it a bit tough to make the buzz on the instrument but he had fun all the same!
We are all looking forward to our next brass lesson next week!

Lots to Celebrate!

There's a brand new 4.2 in town and they've had a very busy first two weeks back at school! 
Today we had our first Celebration Assembly for years 3 and 4 and we got the chance to celebrate lots of wonderful achievements from the year so far!
A massive congratulations go to Kashish and Me'Shack for winning our first certificates that were presented to them by Mrs Williams, Me'Shack for Settling In Well and Kashish for wonderful reading. 

Mrs Roberts also had a special surprise for us during this assembly. She bought some wonderful medals to commemorate the Queen Elizabeth I's achievement of becoming the Longest Reigning British Monarch. 
Last week, everyone in KS2 created beautiful fact files jam packed with information about the Queen and two lucky winners from each class got to receive one of Mrs Roberts' wonderful medals. 
For us, the congratulations go to Kashish (again!) and Aman. 

The good news doesn't end there for 4.2! Esha and Sara did lots of work about the Queen at home and when Mrs Roberts saw it she was so impressed that they received a medal each too!

Hope you all have a lovely weekend!

Our RE Trip

Today all of year 4 have been lucky enough to visit St. Philips Cathedral, St Martin's Church and the BMAG Museum. We visited the churches to reinforce our learning about Christianity and, while we were there, we also popped into the museum to conduct a Roman treasure hunt!  

4.2's first stop of the day was the impressive St Philip's Cathedral. 

Our knowledgeable tour guide told us all about how the church was chosen to become Birmingham Cathedral in 1905 when, during a period of massive industrial growth, Birmingham became a city. 
She also showed us the cathedral's famous stained glass windows which tourists come from far and wide to see for themselves! 

After this informative talk, we split into two groups to learn more about the church itself. 

Here we are taking a closer look at the baptismal font. 

Maizy played the part of a proud mother bringing her daughter to be baptised while Harry took the role of the father and Makale and Reagan were named godparents! 
Here are some of the children learning about the ship's bell which was displayed in the cathedral. 
Harry investigated the inscriptions inside the bell which gave the names of all the people who were baptised on the HMS Birmingam. 
Dalton even got to have a go at ringing the bell!

After a quick snack in the pigeon park... 

We headed over to the museum.

Here we became Roman Treasure Hunters as we searched for some interesting artefacts.

Our final stop of the day was at St Martin's Church in the bullring. 
Here the reverend gave us a very informative guided tour of the historic church. 

We have learnt a lot about Christianity today and showed respect for the religious locations that we visited, great job today 4.2!
