Summer Week 1 Lauren and Estelle Class 4Th

This week, In maths we have been learning about Roman numerals. We learnt numbers up to 1000. As the week progressed, the numbers we were looking at got harder and harder. We learnt that 1 = I, 5 = V, X = 10, L=50, C=100, D=500, M=1000. Also that to get 4 and 9 you have to subtract 1 from 5 and 10.

 

In english, we have been learning about significant authors. What makes them significant and their styles. We have started to learn about biographies and autobiographies. A biography is when you are writing about someone else life where as an autobiography is when you write about yourself. They also have specific features.

 

In pe, we are practising for sports day and athletics. We practised running when we weren't ready to go. We have to sit on the floor and lay on our fronts. It was fun but hard! In pe today with Miss Patston, we did athletics practisng relays and curving while running.

 

In DT, we were investigating bridges and spanning gaps. We had to see what was the strongest shape for a pillar to support the deck. This was very practical and we were building lots.

This week in maths, we have been reading and interpretting line graphs. We made a human line graph to see which month had the most birthdays in. It was really fun and i liked the smarties challenge too!

 

In english, we are looking at similes, metaphors and alliterations.

e.g.

- similies are when you compare two things using like and as  - Her eyes shone like diamonds

- metaphors are when you compare two things but saying they are using is and was - Her eyes were diamonds

- alliterations are when you use the same letter a number of times in a sentence or phrase for impact - Mickey Mouse moved mechanically

My favourite part of the science day was making the bridges with Mrs Hoar. It was so fun! My one even stood the wind!

Class 4 Blog 13th March

Hello and welcome to class 4 blog!

 

In maths, we have been learning about money and addition. This included lots of word problems which was very fun.

 

Yesterday we had special visitors owls! This was very exciting! We even got to have our picture with them. It was really exciting when they got to fly over us and we learnt lots about them.

 

In science, we did an experiement which involved gases. We weighed a deflated balloon then blow it up and weighed an inflated balloon. This was to help us explain what gas is.

 

In english, we had our debate on against and for animals in the circus. The next day we did another debate about if owls should be kept as pets at home in the zoo or kept in the world.

 

Also today we were funny for money as it was comic relief everyone looked fantastic!

Jam Packed Week by Mark, Katelyn and Ed

This week, have have completed all our assessments.  We're sure we all got brilliant scores but we're glad its over.

 

In English it was very fun we were learning about persuasive language.  It was quite hard to think of a persuasive sentence. Here is an example:

 

Dear Mr Baboom,

Please tell the crazy monkeys to stop taking all the bananas.  Just please, please make them stop.

From

Mr Penny.

 

On Thursday it was World Book Day there were crazy and cool costumes. Very well done to Neve, Theo and Harry for winning from Class 4.

After school on Thursday, St Ippolyts played football against William Ransom.  The A team lost 3-1,  the B team lost 5-1 but they all played great.

 

Today, we say goodbye to Mrs Dunnigan who is leaving for a new job. We will all miss her as she misses us! Good luck!
