Arts Day fun 2015 Class 4 Blog

On Arts day 2015, some people came in to teach us tai chi/kung fu. It was really fun because two of the moves they taught us was to punch and kick but only in sports classes not in agression! They also taught us some chinese warm ups. (Alexander)


The same people taught us dragon and lion dancing and we went under a lion suit with a partner and had to dance around! It was really fun (Lucy)


It was the busiest week since we've been back. Our topic for arts day was china this year. My favourite was making spring rolls! (Estelle)


There was a good range of wonderful things to do and it was lots of fun! (Alice)


In Maths, we've been learning about factors, multiples, prime numbers and square numbes. A factor is a number that goes in to another number that doesnt leave a remainder. A mutliple is a number that is in the times tables. (Ruby)

On the first full week we've had a great week. It's been jammed packed with work.

We have been doing reflective RE work by thinking about the garden of Eden and the 7 days of creation. In English, we've been learning about suspense stories focusing adventures and detective genres. Suspense is intriguting and you ask questions. It is exciting from the beginning. We had to draw a picture and write an opener, look at pictures and write an opener to match and make up our own.

In maths, we have been practising word problems on the four functions where we had to find all possibilites. We did lots of different fun activities we even solved a sweet shop problem. We used ipads to solve a domino problem which was really tricky but we enjoyed it!


In music, we tried to make suspense music to make clusters. We performed with our voices and instruments. In geography we were finding out the origins of towns and villages to find out why they were called this. We are learning about netball skills in pe, yesterday we looked at the different throws, pivots and catching.

Fifth blog by Joshua and Alexander

Last week was friendship week, we learnt about how to be a good friend. One of the activities we did was called the Blob tree where we had to colour the person which we thought we were e.g. if we were happy we picked the person being happy. We had a visitor in and we watched a play. It was about anti-bullying and bystanders. We volunteered each other for friendship tokens if people were especially kind and nice. We did lots of fun activities and learnt a lot from this.

In Maths, we learnt about decimals and converting them into fractions. This week we are learning about fractions.

In English we are continuing with our fantasy stories and we are now writing about fantasy creatures. Fantasy means made up and not real.

This week so far we have learnt about Ancient Egypt inventions and achievements.

So far a really fun week and more to come!!!


Girls football match on Wednesday (Hope you had a great time and good luck)

Class 4 Blog by Edward and Samuel

Last week we had a busy week. We had the Harvest Service which went really well. We had a visit from Rev Ann who talked to us about the Bible and we wrote down questions which we asked her relating to her she feels about the Bible.  This was fun and we learnt a trick on how many books there are in the bible.


What have we been doing?

In Maths, we were doing time where we had to read the time to the nearest minute and then we learnt to read timetables. In English, we made fantasy setting based on descriptions from "The Lion, the witch and the wardobe". Everyones looked slightly different but with similar features e.g. a river. In History, we have been writing scripts for Ancient Egypt looking at the River Nile and why it is important. We then acted these out and recorded using the ipads. This week is friendship week where we will be learning about friendships with a different theme each day.



Choir are going to St Albans Catherdal to sing. Good Luck!

Our favourite lesson this week was art where we had to draw a picture of egyptian god/goddess or a famous person. We had to research and then draw the egyptian god or godess that you chose.
