HONOURS We have passed exams in playing instruments. Singing Echoes from London was really special.
MINERVA SCIENTIFICA PROJECT Echoes from London, June 2019
We went on a trip to the Science Museum to see a show called “It takes Guts”. We learnt about the digestive system, made poo and a digestive system and looked inside the stomach and the large intestine at the show.
Sometimes we do scientific art work.

Almost everyone in Year 4 plays an instrument. We have whole class sessions every week on cello, clarinet or trumpet and we sing with our teachers. Some of us play other instruments too – like the electric guitar, piano, violin and banjo.
Hertha Ayrton was an electrical engineer and physicist and inventor. She’s inspiring because she was a suffragette and made a flapper fan to stop gas in the trenches. She also made improvements to the electric arc. She always tried hard and never gave up.
