This Term in Class 4

by Head Girl (Iona) and Head Boy (Jacob H)

 

 

In Class 4 we have been researching and learning all about sacred texts. On Tuesday, we had some special visitors who answered our questions about the Quran. This was a really interesting talk because we didn’t know much about the Quran, but now we do. Our visitors also brought in a translated children’s version of the Quran for us to keep in school.

Forest School was super exciting this week, because we built dens with pallets and we learnt how to start a fire safely. Rory.T and Alfie.F showed great determination when they were starting the fire for us all.

This week we started Music with our new Music teacher, Mrs Harcourt. We learnt a song called On the Road to Banbury and Hallelujah. These songs we will be singing at St Mary’s Church with Mrs Harcourt. All of Class 4 had lots of fun and enjoyed singing together!

This week's Math includes formal methods with decimal numbers. We have been multiplying decimal numbers.

In English this week, we have been doing information writing and narrative using speech.

In Music, we have started our choir which includes Hallelujah (shrek version) more details are to follow.

We had a visit from the Dogs Trust this week, we learnt how to approach dogs safely and how to care and look after dogs. We also learnt some interesting facts about dogs too!

 

We really enjoyed the New Year disco with the whole school, playing party games and having snacks as a treat!

 

Class 4 have enjoyed their class production this week. Some children bravely stepped up last minute into new parts to enable the show to go on. We have also been making our annual Christmas presents..shhh it is top secret! We have also enjoyed creating word searches and word problems linked to the festivities and Christmas.

 

This week in Class 4, we have been very busy completing assessments, enjoying Christmas Jumper Day and delivering Christmas cards to the villagers. We have also been rehearsing our plays on the stage, which we put up on Monday.

 

Class 4 this week have been very busy, focusing on Letter Writing and Instruction Writing. In Letter Writing, we each wrote a letter to a Foundation Child, welcoming them to our school.

In Instruction Writing, we have written recipes for Christingles (and made them with Foundation Stage) and for Class 3, how to get your pen licence (which you get in Year 4) and we also wrote a recipe for a happy and healthy school.

In Maths, we have been working on mixed number fractions, improper fractions and we have also been finding the percentage of a number.

Yesterday, on the first day of Advent, we all decorated our classrooms and Class 4 helped to decorate the whole school.

 

 

Since the start of September, Class 4 have been incredibly busy, here are some highlights of what we have been up to.

Our topic for last term was Darwin and his theory of Evolution, we did a lot of research on his trip to the Galapagos Islands, which we found fascinating as we got to learn about the different animals which were discovered. We were able to use our research for the foundation of our class assembly and to help us with our work in English, such as letter writing (as though we were Charles Darwin), narrative and information writing.

 

In Maths, we have been working on using and applying, fractions, place value, factors, prime, square and cube numbers, multiples and related facts, who knew mastering fractions could actually be fun.

 

We have been very active in PE, honing our skills in football, gymnastics, and most recently this term, netball and forest school, we haven’t let the bad weather stop us!

 

The parents were invited into school to watch our assembly which as mentioned above was based on Charles Darwin, we incorporated games of Top Trumps (which we had made ourselves using our research on animals). As well as getting ready for our assembly, we made PowerPoints with the research on both our Galapagos animals and our animal of choice, our parents were invited into class, after the assembly to see our PowerPoints.

 

Parents (and dogs) have also joined us for our ramble for Children in Need, we had a lovely walk around the village and we had a quick pitstop at the Shenington Tree that our logo is based on.  

 

Every term we go to Church, to celebrate the time of year, last term we celebrated harvest festival and this term we have already celebrated remembrance and are waiting for Christmas to come around. 

 

We are so proud of our work, that every term, we have an Open Morning, which gives the parents an opportunity to see our work, chat to our teachers and they even get to enjoy a biscuit and hot drink.

 

We plan to update you regularly across the term.
