Week 4, Summer!

 

Class 4 have had a fantastic week, impressing so many people with their learning!

We’ve started a new topic in English, discussion texts, which was started by discussing what to do with our village’s beloved hedgerow that was going to be destroyed by Farmer Crawley to create a diary factory. Destroying the Hedgerow affected so many animals and plants but building a dairy farm created new jobs and lots of money, what should we do? The children discussed their views with great reasoning and then wrote letters to Farmer Crawley explaining they views and wishing to persuade him. Now we’ve moved on to discussing Zoos and whether or not we agree with them, it has provoked some interesting reasons so far.

In Maths, we’ve continued to work on time with reading digital and analogue clocks. Some children have begun to solve calculations with time. We’ve definitely had to use our resilience learning powers with this one as it can be a little bit tricky.

In Topic we are continuing to debate whether Ancient Greece or Ancient Rome did more for us, I think our views change every day! So far we have compared way of life, sanitation and cleanliness.

We’ve continued to work on classification of living things and habitats in Science. We have learnt the different type of animals under vertebrates and use our knowledge to classify animals and create new animals of our own. We’re very much looking forward to our trip next week to tie in all our learning in real life mini beast hunts.

Fab week Class 4!

Please do remember it is our trip on Tuesday 15th, if you haven’t already paid please do via school gateway as this counts as consent for your child to attend the trip. Please arrive at school through the normal door promptly as we need to leave as soon as we’re ready. Your child needs to wear trainers, a hat, and sun cream and have their packed lunch in a bag on their back.

Easter Experience - Class 4

We've had a brilliant, busy week in Class 4. We wrote this blog post together!

Class 4 Blog

On Wednesday we had an R.E day and it was fabulous. We were learning about the story of Easter and everything Jesus experienced in the order he experienced it. First we celebrated palm Sunday and to reflect we wrote our hopes and dreams on stones and laid them on the road. Then, we experienced the moment where Jesus washed his disciples feet as the Servant King. Next, we went to the last supper where Jesus had his last meal with the disciples and he said Goodbye, we talked about how it felt to say goodbye to someone we might not see for a long time. After that, we went to The Garden of Gethsemane and reflected on Jesus’ feelings as he was lone that night. When we were at The Garden of Gethsemane we made clay models to represent a moment when we’ve felt alone. Next, we went to the church were we talked about the Crucifixion of Jesus on the cross. We said our own prayers for someone who was suffering. Finally, we looked at the tomb where Jesus was laid to rest after he died. We talked about the Angel and whether we though angels existed. We discussed why it was an angel that brought the message to Mary.

Henry - I felt happy and reflective

Amelia - I felt like I understood the Easter story better.

Ella - I felt that life can sometimes be sad but it always leads to a happy ending.

Sami - I felt sad but also happy.

Ruby - I felt happy to know why Jesus had sacrificed himself.

Ben - I felt happy but also sad because I had time to pray and share my sad thoughts.

This week we have also made beautiful sunset pictures using chalk pastels and blending them and we have sketched Rainforest pictures and added colour with oil pastels.

On Thursday we planned a narrative poem about explorers in a rainforest. We have also written mnemonics for words we find tricky to spell - why don’t you test us to see if we remember!

In maths we have continued to work on fractions.

On Thursday we also got to watch Class 5 practise their fabulous dance for their dance festival next week - Good luck Class 5!

 Reminders:

Please label snack boxes! We're having a lot of boxes not collected and therefore not being washed! 

Please join us at the Easter Service at 9:15 on Tuesday.

End of term is Thursday at 2pm!

Spring 2, Week 4

What an exciting week we have had in Class One! We have completed a whole week of crazy science activities, starting qwith an experiment into materials. We investigated the school to find as many materials as we could and had great fun looking at where materials came from. The children were very knowledgable about where paper comes from and this led into a great discussion all about recycling and looking after the environment. Our recycling bo has never looked so full! Later in the week, we investigated how materials change when they are heated or frozen. We put kernals into the microwave to watch how they change and even got to try the end product which was very tasty! As well as looking at materials, we also conducted experiments into floating and sinking and had a competition to see who could build the best pirate ship. We had lots of fun making our ships using differen materials and even more fun testing them out to see which would keep our pirates the driest and safest. Other science actvitiies we have done this week include, minibeast hunting in our school nature area, looking at optical illusions, making raisins dance in glasses of lemonade, meeting Jules Howard, a real zoologist and learning all about fossils, meeting our visitor from ‘mad science’ who showed us how to make real rockets blast off and investigating the stretchiest underpants with Mrs Archer! All in all a great week with lots of brilliant learning going on. If you haven’t already, make sure you check the school gallery page above to have a look at our science week activities! Reminders. We are very low of badges once again for our showing assemblies each Friday. If you have any at home, please can these be returned to the school office ASAP please, to ensure they can be passed on to the next child each week. Please ensure that children bring their library books in each Monday, so that they can return it and choose another one to borrow for the week. Thank you and have a good weekend everyone!
