End of Spring Term Class 4

As always in Class 4 we have been very busy. We have done lots of activities this week. In DT, we finished designing and making our own musical instruments out of recycled items such as tubing, tissue boxes, bottles. We made recorders, guitars and many more. We had to investigate different musical instruments to decide what we wanted to make.


In PSHE, we were acting out scenarios which involved risk and persuasive techniques. We had a long discussion in circle time and got to share all our ideas. In maths, we learnt how to draw line graphs, it was a bit tricky to plot these but we give it a good try! Mrs Springall was really impressed.

Class 4 Blog Week ending 4th March

On Wednesday in Re we were focusing on the main events in Jesus’ life. We had to decide what we thought they were and why. We chose various events such as the miracle Jesus performed, his birth, death and many more. Mrs Springall was really impressed with the many ideas we had and how much we knew. We used the bibles to help us. (Finty and Kai)

In English over the last week we have been learning about formal and informal language. We learnt the different situations in when you would use them and examples of them. Today for homework we are focusing on apostrophes and the uses. We have been looking at this in early morning work too. (Max)

Class 4 Spring 2 Week ending 26th Feb


This week in English we have been learning about non chronological reports. We looked at open and closed questions to interview Sir Edmund Hillary, a famous explorer. We also looked at how to use apostrophes correctly. We learnt about 1st and 3rd person to use in our reports. We had to change the text to figure out the correct tense. (Remi and Cruz)

In maths, we’ve been learning about measurements. This was very hard as we had to convert between different units of measurements. We had to multiply and divide by 10, 100 and 1000. (Remi and Cruz)

In geography, we made powerpoints about mountains across the countries even making a quiz at the end. It had to include a map of where it is located, features of a mountain, how it’s formed, the type of mountain it is and the mountain range. (Cruz)

In science, we started a new topic on states of matter. We looked at solids and liquids. In our experiment, we had to decide which was solid and liquid using water, sand, cotton wool, cornflower, soil and oil, glue in two different forms. We defined a liquid as being able to spill/pour/change shape and a solid as not being able to change shape even though sand can pour it is still a solid as it is made from small particles. (Cruz)


English Homework - They’re/Their/There

They’re talking to their teacher, over there. They’re is simply a contraction of ‘They are’. The apostrophe replaces the missing ‘a’. Example - They’re going to the beach in May.

Their is the possessive of ‘they’. It means that something is owned or possessed by someone. Example - I admired their shiny new car.

There is the most commonly used word. It is usually to do with place. Example - I lost my purse over there.

Can you write two sentences using each; ‘they’re’, there and their

This week we have had an extremely busy week! We have not only had our normal lessons but Arts days too! Our favourite were soap carving because we liked carving the shapes. It was a challenge! We had to take off small slithers at a time. Another favourite activity of ours, was the collage pictures which we had to draw the picture in pencil of people. We then had to use oil pastels to colour it. We coloured the people with paint and we used fabric for their outfits. This was really fun.


We have also begun to write our stories. We started at the beginning of the week by planning it and then today we started writing.  We started a new topic on equivalent fractions this week and we will continue this next week.This was a little bit tricky. We had to use our knowledge of times tables to solve equivalent fractions. In science, we did an experiment which we had to get different materials and see which were soundproof. We found out that felt was the best for soundproofing as we couldn't hear as well through it.

We learnt that multiples are the times tables and with factors you divide. In English, we created our own monster and hero for our Greek myth that is going to be written next week. We had to use figurative language to explain them.

In computing we learnt about simulations.

We found out that the further away you get from the noise then the quiet it gets. In geography, we were investigating different mountains. We had to use the ipads to research information. In music, we learnt to sing in Norwegian. The song will learnt to sing was called ‘In the hall of the Mountain King’.
