This week the children have written some amazing revolting rhymes with a twist, detailing some facts and fiction about the character and life of Jim Jarvis. They have created Christmas cards to develop their fine motor skills as well as painting a landscape of Bethlehem for a new year calendar.
Finally the children have reinforced their multiplication and division skills by the power of 10, 100 and 1000.
Finally, we recapped our topic work by looking at crime during the Victorian era and did a question and answer session to recap there all there learning for this term.
I am so proud of you all Class 4 and wish you all an amazing Christmas and New Year!
Well it's week 5 already and this week the children have been completing their biography lap books about Dr Barnardo - they look awesome and the children have learnt so much about Victorian life and how one man changed history with the work he did with the street children of London.
The children have also looked at factors, square and cubed numbers and using their knowledge of multiplications to solve cubed numbers and missing cubed number problems.
On Monday, we were fortunate enough to watch the pantomime of 'A very merry Covid cancelled Christmas'. The children loved it!
Finally, during PE we have worked on developing our counter balance and counter tension skills and develop routines that include both of these movements.
Well done to all the children for all their hard work especially with the naughty elves coming in to the classroom to cause mischief and mayhem!
Wow, what a week so far! The children have done brilliantly being back in the classroom. They have continued their understanding of moving equipment safely in PE and developed their gymnastics point skills. We have also developed out use of language in literacy to write paragraphs about Dr Barnardo, choosing examples of words that would make their writing more exciting whilst also highlighting historical changes for example 'step back in time to the Victorian age when candles were used instead of electric lights and carriages were used instead of cars, to find out how one man changed the course of thousands lives in the poverty lined streets of London'.
Finally, in maths we have studied factors and used counters to identify factors of a number, common factors and prime numbers. Well done Class 4 - What an immense amount of hard work!
Week 3 (self isolation week 2)
This week the children worked really hard on their home learning. They have completed multiplication and division tasks, looked at Judaism and the ten plagues of Egypt as well as completing SPAG activities. We have also had some amazing inference, explanation and prediction work done for our podcasts on 'Street Child'. Well done to all Class 4 your continued hard work.
Week 2 - (Week 1 in self isolation)
Well done to all the parents and children for supporting Class 4 whilst we self isolate, I have loved seeing all the work coming into Purple mash and have set up a blog for communication with you all. Well done to everyone for their work on British scientist Maggie Aderin-Pocock, it was lovely to see some of the extra research and facts you found out about her.
It has been great seeing your literacy and reading comprehension of the story 'A sheep dip to India' - well done!
Next week is Anti bullying week and I will be asking you to keep a kindness diary of all the kind things you do each day and put it into an ICT story.
Keep safe guys x
What a great start to the half term the children have had! We began the week by honing our ICT skills and researching Dr Barnado. This is to create an informative lap book about his life and achievements. We have also begun reading our new class novel 'Street Child' by Berlie Doherty which links with our literacy research as it is based on his work. It also links with our topic of crime and punishment as we will be moving onto crimes during the Victorian era and how they were punished.
In PE the children began their gymnastic topic, focusing on floor work and using their bodies to create points.
The children also looked at the sacrament of marriage in Come and See and had a go at writing marriage vows using the 7 promises that underpin them.
Well done Class 4!
