Class 4, Week 8

Class 4 Bloggers

In English this week we did explanation texts. We drew dogs! First, Miss Walker told us what to draw but didn’t explain it clearly. Then, she explained it properly, using time adverbs and we drew it again. The second drawing looked a lot more like what she wanted us to draw!

In History/Geography this week we looked at Death masks. First we had to write a paragraph about what we had learnt. We wrote about who wore them and how they were made. Most importantly we learnt that the purpose of the Death mask was to ensure the dead had a face for the afterlife. It was very interesting! Then we designed our own. We focused on the patterns and coloured used and coloured it in. Miss Walker was very impressed with the detail in everyone’s!

In maths we have been looking at measures. Yesterday we did weight. Miss Walker bought in some food from home and we had to see how much it weighed. It was important for us to feel how heavy things were. We then hand to convert grams to kilograms and kilograms to grams.

I hope you liked this week’s blog,

Just a quick note to say the children have come back after half term very refreshed and enthusiastic about their learning and we have had a great week!

On Wednesday, we had the school council elections and it was lovely to see so many children stand and speak in front of three year groups! All the children had great ideas and projected their voices fantastically well!

Today, I was out of school on a course and so homework that was due in today has not yet been marked. Please don’t worry, both Wednesdays and Fridays homework will be marked next week! I am looking forward to seeing what everyone chooses to explore for their English!

Finally, myself and Miss Leake popped up to the football match afterschool yesterday and were very impressed by the children in both the A and B team, we thought you did really well and loved cheering you on! Go St Ipps!

Have a lovely weekend and I will see you all on Monday.

Class 4 Week 5

English:

At the beginning of the week we finished editing our Legends and are now in the process of finishing our final copy.  Today, we started learning about adverbs because we are starting a new topic next week – recounts.

Maths:

In maths we have been learning about money. We have been adding different amounts and finding change. We used a number line to help us work out the change.

Science days:

On Wednesday everyone got to take part in the virtual reality. With a choice of:  roller-coaster, painting or under the sea.

On Thursday we stayed in our classroom, and learnt about animal’s gestation periods. Then in the afternoon we were given special paper (chromatography paper) and put a dot of ink in the middle. Then we added a drop of water with a pipette and watched the ink disperse and change colour. It was really amazing to watch!

Circle Time:

At the end of every Thursday we sit in a circle and we have 2 puppets a monkey and a dragon to say our highs and lows of the week (some people make the puppets talk). This week we got to sat two things, one of our choice and one about the science days.

Class 4 Week 4

In English we have been writing legends about King Arthur and Robin Hood. Focusing on writing in the past tense and using descriptive language to make it interesting.

In maths we have been learning about time. We have been learning about the 12 and 24 hour clock. It has been a bit tricky but we have persevered as it is a life skill we will need.

In science we have been learning about the growth of babies in their first year. We drew bar charts to show the data and then answered questions to develop our understanding of the human life cycle.

Topic was especially fun this week because we did some drama. We thought about how each character felt and their job. We became Ancient Egyptian farmers, craftsmen, tradesmen and scribes. We then wrote a diary entry.

This is our 3rd week of doing circle time where we get to share, with two puppets our highs and lows of the week. It is fun to listen to our friends.

From the Class 4 bloggers (Veritie, Chloe, Elin and Mercedes)  

Just a quick note to say how lovely it was to meet so many of you at open session. I do hope you enjoyed looking at your children’s work so far. I look forward to working with you throughout the year.

Reminders:

  • Over the weekend try and find some time to keep working on your times tables.
  • On Monday when you get your new spellings please try and learn them! A really good way of practising is doing a rainbow write! This means writing the word in different coloured pencils over the top of each other to create a rainbow!
  • Don’t forget to use your learning powers at home as well as school.

Have a lovely weekend, see you all Monday morning!

Class 4 Summer Blog Week 9

On Tuesday, in DT, we made fruit tarts. The choice was out of kiwi, blueberries, strawberries, passion fruit, raspberries, and mango. First of all, we tried all of these. Some loved them and some didn't.  We got to choice what fruit tart we wanted then decorate with the fruit we liked. We had to cut them ourselves and design on top. At the end, we got to eat them! We then evalualted our fruit tarts and the taste.   

On Wednesday, we went to Milton Keynes to see Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat. It was so much fun to watch. It was fun because the actor made the audience join in.

This week, we have had rehearsals. We are getting ready for the 2 big days in only 2 weeks. Everyone is really excited and it will be so much fun. Everyone has been learning their words for the big day.

We are continuing to learn about percentages, fractions and decimals. We learnt how to convert them. In english, we learnt about emotive language and how to use this is our writing.

 

In PSHE, we were learning about growing up and being mature. We talked about what we are looking forward to in the future such as driving a car.

Class 4 Summer Week ending 20th May

On Monday, we went up to the field to practise sports day. This was really fun. In the afternoon, we were learning about Muhammad and comparing him to Jesus. On Tuesday, we had maths in the morning. We were leaning about adding and subtracting fractions. In english, we read the Highwayman as a class. We had to draw Tim the Ostler based on the description from the poem. In history, we made Pictish stones and wrote our names in 'Ogham'. This was really fun but quite tricky.  On thursday, we had sports day. We would like to thank all the adults who helped out with the activities also thank you to all parents for coming and watching. It was great effort from all the teams.
