Well done Class 4, you have impressively used your excellent powerpoint computing skills in English. Your non-chronological reports are looking super, you are considering all the suitable features of the report, such as; clear sentences, sub-headings and use of language.
Class four have been working hard on learning all the features of non-fiction texts this week. We have focused on the use of non-fiction literary features, such as: clear presentation, headings, use of bullet points and informative short facts. We are working towards writing our very own version of A Walk in London.
Class 4 loved their trip to The Old Vic to watch Dr. Seuss The Lorax. It was a magical, lively and creative insight into the importance of caring for our environment and the beauty in nature around us. This was a theme in our class book, The Iron Man.
Following a workshop with The Old Vic, where we created our own flowers, made out of recycled card, these flowers were displayed alongside flowers from other schools on the theatre’s banister.
Class 4 have showed excellent design and technology skills during D&T week. We looked at different types of sailing boats and how they are made. We decided that strength, being waterproof and floatable were the most important qualities of the different materials needed to make our model sailing boats.
We tested different materials for different purposes and chose polystyrene, plastic, waterproof cotton , thickened card and maskas the most suitable materials.
We are very proud of our designs! Well done Class 4.
Well done on an excellent Collective Worship Class 4. You were wonderful explaining to the school and parents about your focus on ‘Life in all its fullness’ during World Faiths Week and in other subjects too. You showed excellent engagement when dramatising your adverbs and scientific vocabulary. Super articulate speaking, fantastic eye contact with the audience and beautiful singing.
You shared the message of the power of celebration perfectly. The video of your assembly will be here soon!
Class 4 had a wonderful experience at the CLC centre in Clapham. The class enthusiastically explored Minecraft! The children had to think about what buildings are needed in a city and how important consideration of the infrastructure of a city is.
The children then had to develop their own buildings and place them in their very own Class 4 city. We were able to link to this different subjects, such as geography and maths – using co-ordinates to locate and position the buildings.
Well done Class 4, you have begun your unit of work on The Iron Man brilliantly. I have loved reading your excellent setting descriptions, focusing on: sound, smell, sight, and touch as the Iron Man is at the top of the cliff.
Comment on this blog with some impressive sentences to describe how the Iron Man moves as he approaches ‘the very brink’ of the cliff.
Class 4 had a wonderful World Faiths week focusing on the religions Hinduism and Sihkism. We looked at how these religions follow our school moto to live ‘life in all its fullness’. We focused on the Diwali celebration, both Hindus and Sikhs celebrate this festival with fireworks. For Hindus, it is the festival of lights and for Sikhs, it commemorates the release from prison of the sixth guru, Guru Hargobind.
See below for our wonderful firework pieces of art – we used oil pastels to create our fireworks, covered them with a layer of black paint, and then scratched out our impressive firework displays.
We also looked at how music helps Hindus live ‘life in all its fullness’. We listened to the Om (Aum), a scared sound of divine. It is a mysterious expression of the infinity, timelessness and wisdom. Class 4 shared their views on how this ancient chant made them feel.
I felt like I was in a beautiful Hindu temple, focusing on prayer. Cheri’ane
I was so relaxed and calm but I felt like the music was spinning around me, it was so special. Kristian
I was thinking about Brahman and all different Gods in different religions – I see a similarity between Christianity and Hinduism. Daniel
