Wow- what an amazing year!

As they say all great things must come to an end! We have had a wonderful year- we have come on a long learning journey together… We have been to some wonderful places, seen and done some amazing things.
You have truly grown to become Marvellous Mozart. Have a wonderful holiday- you deserve it.
Thank you so much for your kind words, cards and gifts…

It has been our pleasure to share some fantastic moments together.
Now off to have a long soak with bubbles, drinking some fizzing, munching chocies and choosing which lovely scarf to wear tomorrow!

Delightful Digestion!

Well we were working up to the wire. Our last science session was all about digestion.
It all started with a pack of biscuits- digestives of course! We ate one and had to think abut what was happening to the biscuit inside our bodies. Mrs Dar created a working wall from our initial thoughts. Did the biscuit really disappear? What are enzymes?
We then found some body parts in a box with some words which we matched together, next we watched a video for some more ideas. A brain then told us that it had forgotten how to digest its food and we had to explain it to him using scientific vocabulary. Each group was given a part of the digestive system to research using books, devices and videos. Eventually once we found enough information, we wrote up our findings on a body part.
To share what we had found out we came back together to form a living diagram outside on the playground, each group then read out their sentences as the biscuit travelled along the digestive system. Alfie was a large chocolate biscuit and he travelled along with Melissa and Tendekai, who had the biscuit which was crunched and smooshed, sloshed and squished as saliva and bile was added. Despite looking revolting by the time it completed its final evacuation, some children actually said it smelt quite nice!

I learnt that the small intestine is in fact longer than the large intestine at 5m in length, that the liver in an adult is the size of a football (demonstrated by a group throwing a football during their demonstration) and that the stomach can hold 1.5 litres of fluid!
The children learnt lots of information whilst having fun, and now know that our food does not just go down a tube!

Showcase

Today Mozart showcased their performance poetry of The Fiery Underworld in front of other NPAT schools and VIP guests from Microsoft and the BBC. Your performance was flawless and we were all so very proud of each and everyone of you. Your hard work definitely paid off! Hopefully you have all remembered to take home your home crafted invitations as we will do one last performance on Monday morning at 9am in the hall for which all parents are invited to. The children have also been working extremely hard on their presentation writing of their own poems which we hope to have on display for you to see. Well done again Mozart. You were awesome!

Transfer Day

Well… lots of change today. Marvelous Mozart moved up to pastures new- into the Year 5/6 block. I still managed to catch up with lots of them today, as I have moved back into Year 6. Their watercolours today were great- so lovely to see them putting all their skills into practice.
It was great to see Mrs Greener back in school too, nonetheless a little strange as she was making herself at home in the Mozart Classroom!
Well done Year 4 for taking transition in your stride- it could bring a little tear to my eye.
