In Skills Builder, we have been developing our creativity, team work and leadership and we are well on the way to designing our final products.

In R.E., we had to design a poster advertising for a new Reverend.  Watch out Rev. Jes!

In Mathematics, we have been working really hard on subtracting two, 4 digit numbers with some tricky exchanging.

In our Big Write, we wrote some fabulous biographies on Nelson Mandela.

In Science, our junk model digestive systems were amazing.  We’ll show you them on Koinonia Friday.

In French, we have been singing Petit Papa Noel again and revising lots of Christmas vocabulary.

We enjoyed wearing green today and as part of the day, we planted some trees in the school grounds.

Well done to Caleb and Greta for doing so well in the Christmas quiz.  They represented us at Houghton Primary School.

Bon weekend!

In R.E. this week, we looked at the story of ‘The Good Samaritan’ and what this means to us today.

As you know, we finished reading The Firebird story last week.  Firstly, we drew the story in the form of a story map and in our Big Write we retold the story really successfully!  There were many amazing Fronted Adverbials included.

In French, we were taught a classic Christmas song, Petit Papa Noël .  Mrs. Gill was really impressed at how quickly we picked it up.

In DIALLS, we watched a video clip called ‘Papa’s Boy’.  We had an amazing discussion all about this and how ‘we should stay true to ourselves not to what others expect of us.’

In Skills Builder, we explored teamwork, creativity and leadership.  We are going to carry out a design project to further develop these skills.

We just really enjoyed GenR8!

Wish us luck for our times table challenge!

Don’t forget we are junk modelling on Monday!

 

Bon weekend!

Firstly, we really enjoyed singing our Christmas song yesterday in preparation for the carol concert.  Christmas has come early in Year 4!

In English this week, poor Prince Ivan has been arrested (Firebird, Power of Reading book) and we have been preparing for a court hearing.  Will he be guilty?

Mrs. Gill was really impressed at our knowledge and understanding of The Digestive System in Science.  We are going to make junk models of the system really soon.

Outdoor P.E was rather chilly but our hockey skills are really improving – a full game is on the cards for next week!

Our class reader is Charlotte’s Web by E. B. White, we have one and a half chapters left!  We’d love to watch the film!

Tomorrow is non- uniform day, don’t forget to bring in a PTA Hamper contribution.

Bon weekend!

We reached the end of our unit in Mathematics and completed a quiz, really successfully.  Many of us actually enjoyed doing it!

Our Big Write this week involved us writing a letter of advice to the Wolf from Firebird, we gave some sound advice.

Lots of us enjoyed P.E. where we played ‘King of the Ring.’  Maybe tell an adult what this is?  Also, we loved jumping and leaping in indoor P.E.

In Global Learning/Music, we created some fabulous protest songs.  Our inspiration for this was Nelson Mandela and the protest songs that were around during apartheid.

In R.E. we investigated Leprosy, this was fascinating!

Thank you Muhammad Ali class and Mrs. Holl for being so amazing while I was off sick.  What super stars!

 

Bon weekend!

Firstly, Mrs. Gill was so proud of us all for our class assembly all about St Paul on Thursday morning.

In English, we really enjoyed imagining that we were The Firebird, being chased by Prince Ivan.  We produced some fantastic dances.  Also, we wrote some fabulous letters from Prince Ivan to King Vaslav.  We are getting experts at using Fronted Adverbials!

In Mathematics, our work on Negative Numbers was both enjoyable and impressive!

In French, once again we were joined by some of the residents of Hardwick Dene, we loved singing C’est ma famille, a French song all about members of the family.

In PE, we really enjoyed doing Jumping  Jax’s  Gym.  It exhausted us!

Later on, we have our Times Table Challenge.  I wonder who will improve this week?

Finally, today we hope Miss. Lizell has a great 12 hour walk around Grafham.  Thank you for raising money for us!

Bon weekend!

In Mathematics, our counting up in 25s has dramatically improved.

In French, Mrs Gill was amazed at our use of opinions and conjunctions with zoo animals.

Finally, in Science we carried out some research and now all know some top tips for keeping our teeth clean.

What a fabulous half term!

In English, we finally finished reading Mama Miti.  Did you know she actually was a real person, who received the Nobel Peace Prize in 2004?

In Mathematics, we really enjoyed exploring Abacus.  We now know that all of our passwords work.

Wow! Art was fantastic! We produced some amazing, layered pictures (including animals) in the style of Henri Rousseau.

Inter-house was incredible despite the weather.  Lots of us took part in the Tag Rugby.  (Good luck to Wales on the weekend!)

In French, we once again worked with some of the residents of Hardwick Dene.  This week we explored zoo animals and opinions.  (Bonne chance La France cet weekend!)

Finally, in Music we developed our Amazon sounds.  We hope you enjoy them this afternoon during Koinonia.

Have a lovely break!

In English, we really enjoyed learning outside when we collected sticks, branches and logs to create different things.  We made games, houses and lots of other things.

In Mathematics, we were challenged when comparing 2 four digit numbers.  We got there in the end.

In Science, we drew accurate circuit diagrams, using a pencil and ruler.  We investigated whether the position of a switch in a complete circuit matters or not.

In P.E, we had a great time playing mini tag rugby matches.  We’re ready for our inter-house competition next Thursday!

In On-line safety we designed Avatars.  They were cute, scary and creative.

In French, we had visitors from Hardwick Deans who joined us in our learning of the body parts in French.  We can all sing a really annoying song!

In Music we created amazing Amazon rainforest tracks.  Really relaxing, if a bit noisy at times.  Mrs. Marsh in the office couldn’t hear the person on the telephone…ops!

Finally, again we have been working hard on our times tables in Arithmetic all week.  We have our challenge this afternoon!

Bon weekend!

Wow what a quick week! We haven’t let the weather stop us!

In English we have been doing some Drama activities using our book Mama Miti as an inspiration.  Today we are doing our Big Write.

In Mathematics we really enjoyed cracking codes using Roman numerals.  We also took an end of unit quiz and Mrs. Gill was so proud of us as we all did really well.

In preparation for our Harvest festival we spent yesterday afternoon sketching tractors ploughing fields.  We have some fantastic artists!

In Science we explored whether classroom objects are conductors and insulators. 

In P.E we got our heart rates up with some gymnastics and our ability to not forward pass the ball is improving in Rugby. (Good luck Wales on Sunday morning!)

Finally, we have been working on our times tables in Arithmetic all week.  We have our challenge this afternoon!

Bon weekend!
