Week 1, Spring

Well, welcome back Class 4!

We’ve had an excellent week in Class 4. The children have been looking after Rory The Lion, who needs help to use his Relationships Learning Powers. The children have been excellent role models and truly have been trying extra hard to use their Relationships Learning Power well! I am very proud of them.

We have started looking at a play based on the story of Alice in Wonderland, the children rehearsed a section about ‘The Tea Party’ and did an excellent job at demonstrating the adverbs, in the stage directions, through their acting. We have also changed the play into a narrative looking at the relationship between the lines in the play and written dialogue in a story. It has been tricky but we have been very resilient!

We have been learning about shapes, parallel and perpendicular lines and symmetry of 2D shapes in Maths. Remembering all the long names of shapes and the properties of shapes has been tricky but we have done it! Perhaps ask your child if they can describe the qualities of a parallelogram?

We’ve been learning a lot about Electricity in Science, challenging our deeper thoughts in R.E and started our Romans topic in History! Truly fabulous learning this week with completely enthusiastic members of Class 4!

We’ve had our Class Cake Day today! Thank you all so much for your donations and bake goods - they were very yummy!

Please note that our Class Assembly is 2nd February at 2:30pm - can’t wait!

Have a good weekend,

Miss Gale.

  • We are checking Class 4 home-school contact books on a Monday, please support your children to complete this everybday, with a comment about what they have read and an adult/guardian signature.

Spring 1, Week 2

This week, the children have started our new mini topic of 'Superheroes'! We began the week with a fact finding session all about different heroes and villains. We learnt their real identities, powers and vehicles and enjoyed discussing which heroes would win in a battle. Then it was time to create our own superhero.... we began by splitting ourselves into groups and drew around each other. Next, we added powers to our outlines and drew on details. Last of all we presented our heroes to the class and explained their strengths and weaknesses; we had Changeboy, Powergirl, SuperNell, Icy Isaac and of course the ferocious Flash-bat girl! Ask us all about them at home so we can tell you everything we remember. 

Later in the week, we acted our own superhero plays. We thought about how stories all have a clear beginning, middle and end and this helped us to structure our performance. The next day, we used our performance to write our own comic strip. Our class teachers were amazed with our writing, we all tried hard to think of our own ideas and many of us are now writing full sentences which can be read by an adult; so impressive! 

In other news this week, we have been... learning about 'more and less', practising our directional vocabulary including learning about turning left, right, clockwise and anti-clockwise, have been using the laptops to create superhero pictures on the 'Tux Paint' and 'ColourMagic' software and have even attended hero training sessions with Mr Jefferies and Mr Smith. Next week we continue our superhero theme with a week of Supertato books and fun! 

Enjoy your weekend everyone!
