Week 6: Our final week of this term is also Holy Week. Class 4 was tasked to produce an assembly retelling the Last Supper and the Arrest of Jesus. They all did a wonderful job!
Week 5:This week brings our instruction writing to an end. Using their notes from last week, Class 4 have finished their final draft of instructions on how to plant, and harvest, onions. Alongside this, we have planted all the onions in our garden which we hope we will use in school dinners during the summer terms.
You have also started to create collages of the different gender parts of a flower. These collages will be labelled accordingly once finished. Here is a quick look at our work in progress so far. Our aim is to use these to explain the reproductive cycle of a flowering plant.
Week 4: This week, Class 4 have started a new unit of maths work on percentages! At the start of new units of work, children are given a mini assessment to show what they may already know! This way they can be challenged appropriately! We have also planted our first onions! This experience will be used to write our instructions over the next week!
Week 3: Class 4 have been excited to practise their artistic talents with some observational drawings of flowers! We used a magnifying to single out certain areas we could draw in greater detail. We plan on labeling these with the different parts of a flower, which will lead us to learning about the a flower's life cycle.
In RE we have written Lenten prayers, or fasting ideas, calling on Jesus to help us with our temptations and to give them up. We have created a short Lenten Calendar where we aim to act these out leading up to Holy Week.
Week 2: This week we are celebrating Class 4's talents, both inside and outside of the class! Firstly, Gracie passed her audition to go and sing at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival with her choir. She is one of the youngest people chosen for this and after listening to her the judges said it was one of the best auditions they had heard and that she not only sang the music but clearly felt the music as well. A huge well done to our future pop star in the making.
Secondly, Nathan recently passed his electric guitar exam. We are really impressed with his work and hope to hear a solo soon.
Week 1: Well what a busy first week back we've had back! On Monday, Class 4 delivered a road safety assembly to start Road Safety Week. On Thursday afternoon, we visited an allotment to ask questions from a seasoned allotment owner, gaining ideas on how to prepare the ground, what vegetables can be sown this season and how it should be done. Finally, Friday afternoon was our parents session. Parent helped us to prepare our garden area and green house ready for planting.
