Spring 2019

Happy New year and welcome back to new term.  We have a lot going on in Class 4 this term.  Keep checking our class page to see what we have been up to........

 Homework

Weekly maths - to consolidate learning or pre-learn for following weeks lessons. This could be in the form of a learning log, work sheet or interactive game.

DT - Cams - Moving animals

A massive thank you to our Governor, Corry Provan, for coming in for the day to help the children build their moving animals.  We really could not have done it without you!

 

Science

Class 4 finished off their light topic by looking at shadows. We linked it to their main topic of the titanic. The children had to make opaque objects that would recreate the scene of the titanic hitting the iceberg and the people trying to get into lifeboats. They also had to narrate the scene mentioning as many facts as they could remember of what they had learnt.

 

         

World Book Day - hats

This World Book Day, we came dressed in a story hat.  Some great hats came in.  Well done everyone.

Year 6 had the opportunity to attend the WE Day concert in London.  After a very early start, 5am, we headed to Wembly Arena.  At the event, the children hear speeches from inspirational young people and Prince Harry about how they can change the world.

What was your favourite part? When Prince Harry came and spoke to us about changing the world.

Which part most inspired you? Nikki Christon (who has a facial deformity and runs a u-tube channel) spoke about being yourself and not hiding from who you are.

What I would like to change …How people treat girls worse than boys and we should all be treated equally.

The group really took on what the speakers were saying.

 Tudors

This term C4 have been learning about life in Tudor time, or as Harry put it ‘Chew-doors?’.  In one lesson, we made a banquet for either a rich or a poor family.  We were especially interested to learn about the meats they ate; hedgehog, badger, squirrel, swan, anything they could really get their hands on!!!  The children drew out the foods and made a life size table display showing the different dishes. 

         

   

  

Leonardo da Vinci

The children have started to learn about the artist Leonardo da Vinci.  In one lesson, they used collage to recreate on Leonardo’s most famous pieces, The Mona Lisa!  I am not sure how he would have felt seeing his work recreated with sequins, rice crispies, rice and wool!  However, they look great, we definitely have some talented artistic in class 4.(More pictures on the Gallery)
