What a week - the children have worked incredibly hard to develop their 'COGS' editing skills for their diary entry, writing in the role of a Lindisfarne monk on the 8th June 793AD. We have also continued our Viking Boy story and the children are completely hooked and have enjoyed reading each chapter, they can't wait to see how the story ends and have made several predictions about the story.
The children have also read the story of 'Senor Romero' in Spanish and have had a go at taking on the different animal characters and reading their parts. They were amazing!
Well done Class 4!
Brilliant week, we have started looking at features of a diary, began our unit 2 of Place Value and investigated how helicopters use air resistance and gravity to fly. Check out our videos of the children experimenting with propeller sizes to see how smaller propellers mean less air resistance which means that the helicopter will fall to the ground quicker.
Brilliant work this week for class 4, we wrote some Spanish poems about animals using our knowledge of numbers and colours. We continued our learning journey about forces and looked at gravity. We experimented with Newtons law and how the size and shape and mass of an object can influence how fast it travelled compared to an object that has differing qualities.
Finally, we finished our explosion boxes that held our non-chronological reports about Lindisfarne - they are amazing. Well done Class 4!
What a brilliant week this week! I am so proud of Class 4, we have continued our journey learning about forces by making rocket balloons to test how 'Thrust' works, show air resistance and gravity.
We have also completed 'Hot Seating' to teach others about who the Anglo-Saxons were, where they came from, the different tribes and where they settled in England.
Awesome work Class 4!
Well done Class 4! You have worked so hard this week to complete all your assessments as well as coming to school with a smile, adjusting to new routines and generally being awesome!
This week we have also discussed what we already know about Vikings in preparation for our new topic 'Have houses always had windows and doors?'.
Class 4 have also used toy cars and trucks to examine the different forces.
Well done Class 4, I am very proud of you all.
Welcome back Class 4!!!
Myself and Mrs Lemon would like to say a huge welcome to those returning to Class 4 and those new to Class 4, we are so excited for the year ahead. This year we are going to begin by travelling back in time to the Vikings and read Viking Boy by Tony Bradman. We study the attack at Lindisfarne from both the monks and Vikings perspectives. We will study the topic question of 'Have house always had windows and doors' to identify how settlements have developed over time. It will be very exciting.
This week I have been incredibly proud of how the class have settled back into the swing of learning, we have written time capsule letters, measured our heights, and designed a product for Dragons Den.
Well done Class 4 x
