    WOW! What a busy few weeks we have had! What with the exciting (and very comfortable) World Animal Day on Wednesday to a fantastic (if a little creepy) Woodlice experiment for our Habitats Topic in Science.

    We have spent out week learning all about Roman Numerals. Some of us have an excellent understanding of reading and writing Roman Numerals all the way up to and beyond 1000!!!

    This week, we started our History Topic of Anglo-Saxons. We have started looking at the fall of the Roman Empire, and how Britain was invaded by Nomads from all over Europe – I am sure there is a Brexit joke in there somewhere.

    We have held debates about whether it was fair to call the Barbarians barbaric, created our own images of what they looked like and discussed in detail whether we would prefer to be a Roman or a Nomad.

    We are linking our History topic to our English Non-Chronological Report writing over the next few weeks, so we will be aiming to share some of these with you later in the term.

    We are all excited about our Harvest Festival next Wednesday (11th at 9:30-10:00). We look forward to seeing you there, and hope you remember to bring in Harvest boxes for us to delivery on Thursday and Friday to the local community.

    We have been working really hard in ICT to edit our own pictures. We have used a green screen and a photo editing software to manipulate pictures of ourselves and transpose them onto pictures inside our bodies.

    Here are a few examples from our class.

    If you would like to see any more, please let us know and we can add them to our blog :)

    Skip2BFit

    Year 4 had a fabulous afternoon with John from Skip2Bfit. The children skipped for two minutes and tried really hard to get the best score they could.

     

    Lots of children got scores above 150 and Lulu and Poppy achieved record scores of 187 and 193 respectively.

     

    We all had a fabulous afternoon and the children loved their free blueberries.

     

    Skipping ropes will be on sale after school next week please look out for them!

  • Welcome Back :)

    Published 13/01/17, by Emma Bromley

    Welcome back! I hope you’ve had a wonderful Christmas break and are sufficiently full of mince pies, Christmas pud, Quality Street, etc.

    We have come back with a bang, as Samba lessons started today. We arrived promptly in the music room to an array of Samba drums, Ganzas and Agogos, eager to start playing. We were delegated our instrument for the morning and were taught some different rhythms, starting with “I Like Chocolate In The Microwave” (ask your children). We will be doing Samba on a Friday morning for the next ten weeks, culminating in a fantastic assembly, in which parents are invited to attend to see our hard work.

    Our Science topic this week has been Teeth and Digestion, which we have linked to Recount writing in English. Today we watched an episode of The Magic School Bus, in which the children took a journey through the digestion system (not literally). If you could encourage your child to watch the link again at some point over the week, it would really help support our English lessons next week.

    On a similar note, a gentle reminder that your child’s Greek Project is due in on Monday 23rd January.
