It was a real treat in school on Wednesday to play host to the Year 4 Horizon Times Table Challenge. The eight Mathematicians from Jazz Class. tested their skills against other local schools. Special mention must go to Chloe L who achieved maximum marks in several of the rounds! Mr Hird was very proud of the way in which all the children demonstrated their skills and showed great respect towards the other teams who participated.

In Jazz Class, we have been using our visit to Chester Zoo as the inspiration for our art work. We have been looking back at the pictures we captured during our day with the animals and using these to fire our creativity. We have been making marks and lines with a wide range of drawing implements e.g brushes, pencil, crayon, chalk pastels, pens, watercolour pencils etc. We have also been mixImg colours to know which primary colours make secondary colours and starting to use specific colour language. When adding colour to our animal drawings we have been exploring tints and shades.

In their Science lessons, Jazz Class have been learning to describe the simple functions of the parts of the digestive system in humans and have been getting their hands dirty as the made their own models to describe the journey of food through the body explaining what happens in each part. The children really enjoyed every stage of the process, especially the the last one!!

Jazz Class assembly today saw a packed hall watch as the children give a fantastic performance of their home written play that told the whole of Tudor history in just 6 minutes! Bringing history to life has taught the children so much and it was a great way to share this learning with the whole school!

Monday 20th May - Outdoor Adventures

Jazz Class have this week spent a very exciting day enjoying a range of outdoor and adventurous activities with our friends at Crosby Hall (CHET). The children went for the day which started with an hour charging around Church Wood finding and solving the clues on the orienteering course, reading the maps, following directions and working as a team were all the order of the day. With just a few minutes for a drink and a biscuit the children moved on to enjoy all the challenges that the Centre’s amazing Adventure Course has to offer and a quick burst around the Maze. After a well deserved Lunch the children went in to Ben’s Gorse to design and make their own shelters, from all that the woodland floor had to offer. Tired, dirty and hungry the children returned to school after an amazing day long adventure.

Wednesday 26th March - The Easter Experience

Our friends from St Oswald’s Church in Netherton joined us this week to share with us the Easter Story. The children were able to participate in a series of workshops and activities that helped them to understand the significant moments of the Easter and learn how these key events have shaped Christianity. The activities complimented the work the children have completed in class in recent week where they have been reading the Easter Story from the perspective of the four Gospel Writers, Matthew, Mark, Luke and John and comparing and contrasting key parts of the story in the different versions. The team from St Oswald;s were very impressed at the biblical knowledge the children demonstrated during the sessions.

Wednesday 6th March 

The children in Jazz Class have been out today. Our day started at the Walker Art Gallery in Liverpool where we visited a number of the exhibitions including the visiting the Leonardo Da Vinci collection, it was great to see some the extraordinary work of this artist who the children have been studying in class. Great fun was had dressing up as some of the famous faces from history that appear in the gallery’s collection of Holbein paintings and works from the same period. As you can see from the pictures there were some famous faces from school there as well. Following our exciting morning we enjoyed the afternoon participating in the School’s concert with the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra at the Philharmonic Hall.

Dewa Roman Experience

As part of our Ancient Romans topic this term, Jazz Class have been to explore the history of our nearest Roman City, Chester. Known as Dewa in Roman times the children enjoyed a fully guided tour of the reconstructions, excavations and museum and enjoyed a wide range of hands-on experiences. They were able to explore many of the themes that they will be learning about in school including, Health, hygiene and medicine, Food and drink, Pottery, Archaeology and discovering Roman artefacts. One of the highlights of the day was to go on a Soldier Patrol with a Roman Legionary. Armed with battle shields and under the ‘strict’ instruction of the experienced legionaries, the children discovered what it took to become part of the greatest fighting forces the world has ever known. Our new recruits had the chance to form a testudo, visit the amphitheatre, defend the walls and prepare for battle.
