What have we been up to?
Autumn term has been an extremely busy one. We have worked our socks off an produced some fantastic pieces of work.
Things we really enjoyed include-
PE- Year 4 loved Gymnastics and using the equipment in the hall.
Geography- We really enjoyed looking at four-figure and six-figure grid references and learning from the one and only Steve Backshaw.
Art- The children enjoyed mixing different colours and recreating famous paintings using different shades and tones.
English- We liked the story of Rumaysa, which is a fairy tale based on the story of Rapunzel. The evil witch Cordelia locked Rumaysa in a tower and she had to let down her Hijab to escape. We wrote our own versions with a new villain.
Bug Club log in can be found in your childs yellow reading record for information on how to access and use please see the video below.
As a whole school family, we are proud that our nine Gospel Values are embedded at the heart of all we do. The nine values we have chosen underpin all that we do as a school and promote the teaching of Christian values. It is the Christian tradition that gives our values content and the story of Jesus that gives our values moral substance.
All of our Gospel Values are thought about and reflected on daily throughout school as we link them, and the teachings of Jesus, to our own thoughts and actions.
In addition to this, each class studies one Value in depth - further exploring and developing their understanding of the Value through undertaking a variety of creative activities.
Year 4's Gospel Value is Peace.
This half term we have been busy bees again with lots going on.
English- The children have been writing stories with dilemmas based on the short animation from the literacy shed "The Dragon Slayer". They have also enjoyed creating persuasive advertisements- we have some fantastic future sales people in Year 4.
Geography- Year 4 have loved our topic on rivers and have enjoyed learning about how rivers shape our landscape. They really enjoyed using the atlases to locate rivers around the world and then using this information to create their own top trumps game.
Art- This half term we have been looking at landscape art and have been painting, photographing and sketching landscapes. With the legend who is Bob Ross as our inspiration we have been creating some amazing pieces for the annual schools art competition.
Science- Our area of study this half term has been States of matter. The children have blown me away with their scientific knowledge.
Maths- Timestables, timestables and more timestables. :)
Other news- This half term our class pupil council representatives had the amazing opportunity to attend the annual fairtrade conference in Preston. They had a great time and represented our class and school fantastically.
Year 4 also had the chance to visit St Anne's library to listen to storyteller Sue Allonby as part of national storytelling week. Their behaviour was exemplary and they did our school proud.
Pop back next half term to see what we have been up to.
