Our class wish...
Be the best version of yourself.
We have talked about how important a fresh start can be and that we must always look to the future.
We created some artwork by looking at ourselves in a mirror and imagining all the amazing things we can achieve by striving to be the best version of ourselves. Stay tunes to see which children have proven to be showing the best version of themselves and their true capabilities.
Autumn 1 - Freddie
Since the start of this year, Freddie's teachers have all commented on how well he is applying himself in all lessons, he is engaged in his learning, avoiding distractions and doing really well because of this. Freddie has also grown in confidence and is keen to share his outside interests and talk politely with his peers and adults. It is wonderful to see Freddie being the best version of himself and such a good example of this to others. Well done Freddie!
Y4 Advent Reflection
Year 4 are busy practising their advent reflection for the whole school on Monday 10th December.
Your child will be sent home with some lines to practise - please ensure they are confident saying this aloud.
You are most welcome to join us in the hall at 9am to share in this special reflection with us.
Year 4 have been having lessons at Linden road Baths every day for the past two weeks.
They have been learning key stokes and survival skills. They have improved beyond all recognition and are much more confident swimmers.
They were able to demonstrate their skills and swim for badges with Many children receiving 25m, 10m and 5m badges including some children who began the block with armbands. They will be celebrated in celebration assembly this friday and be able to bring their certificate home.
Should you wish to have the badge that they are able to sew onto their swimming costumes, they will need to be purchased directly from Linden Road.
New class book:
The Iron Man by Ted Hughes
We were off to a very exciting start this half term with an introduction to our new Novel - The Iron Man. The children were set a QR code hunt around the playground. They found them all extremely quickly and then came back to class and scanned them into a QR code reader. Each one revealed a photo which was a clue. The children offered their own inference and prediction until number 11 revealed a video re-telling of chapter 1. The children are all really curious already to read this book and discover the plot!
Science - Classifying British Plants
We took to the outdoors to explore the local environment and determine which British plants are growing around us. We sketched them and classified them using knowledge we had learned in the lesson. We were pleased to see such beautiful plants in our own school grounds and talked about the importance of looking after God's world around us.
Oral storytelling -
The Mammoth Hunt
We have very much enjoyed learning our Oral Story - the Mammoth hunt.
We are learning it by heart and doing lots of activities to help us with this.
Our teamwork, oral language skills and confidence will all improve because of this!
Maths No Problem
In Year 4 we work very hard on our problem solving skills during our Maths No Problem lessons.
Using our virtues of being Curious, active and attentive we have worked together in groups to solve our problems practically!
Den Building Hook for Stig of the Dump
Today we were introduced to our new class novel - Stig of the Dump by Clive King. As an introduction, we set about designing and then building our own Dens using limited materials. It helped our understanding of the story, by reusing items that we could find but also our team work skills. Miss Purcell tested they were sturdy and waterproof with a watering can and only a few drops made their way in!
Well done Year 4.
