Harvest Festival - Year 4
Year 4 sung, read poems and performed a great Harvest Festival at St. Luke’s church.
Their reading was beautifully clear and they sung with great gusto, whilst their messages about how lucky we are in this country compared to many parts of the world were very powerful.
They told us that 22,000 children in the world die every day from poverty and over 57 million children in the world do not get the chance of an education. We are lucky indeed!
Henley River & Rowing Museum
On Tuesday 8th and Wednesday 9th November, Year 4 visited Henley River & Rowing Museum. We had a fantastic day, learning about the different features of a river. The children participated in a range of workshops, gaining hands - on experiences of how they are formed. They also had a guided tour of the river, where they spotted many different types of wildlife and boats, and even spotted a weir and a lock, both of which help to manage the change in water level of the River Thames. In the galleries of the museum, they visited a ‘Wind in the Willows’ exhibition and met many of the main characters from the story. They also saw a wide range of boats and other artefacts associated with rivers. The children thoroughly enjoyed the day, were fully engaged in all of the tasks and asked some interesting questions in order to extend their own learning from the day. As always, the children were a credit to Sandcross School. Thank you to the parent helpers from both visits.
