Week 3

Stars of the week: Vivienne and Joseph

I have been very impressed with Vivienne and Joseph this week because of their fantastic attitudes to learning. They are consistently showing an eagerness to learn through their listening skills, effort and focus. You are brilliant class role models.

In English this week, Class 4 have been writing their own mysterious Viking sagas. They have been including different writing techniques to build suspense and atmosphere. Class 4 worked really well in pairs to review and improve their writing too. They are very gripping pieces – well done Class 4.

In Maths, Class 4 are gaining in confidence with place value. We have been counting on in multiples of 10, 25, 50, 100 and 1000. Amazing perseverance Class 4!

Class 4 carried out the experiments they designed in science. They did food tasting to try and figure out the different functions of their teeth.

Autumn 2 Week 2

Stars of the week: Maia and Constance

I was blown away by the imaginative ideas and descriptive writing of Maia and Constance in Extended writing this week. You both managed to use your writing to build a clear and evocative picture of life in a Viking village. Well done!

A huge well done to Class 4 for their first swimming session this week. Class 4 were beautifully behaved and confidently gave it a go, even those who had never swam before! The children have now been assessed so they will start their swimming lessons properly next week.

In English this week we have been writing Viking-style riddles and poems, called Kennings. Class 4 followed the kenning style carefully and came up with original descriptive ideas. Here are a few examples:

 

  

In Maths this week we continued to look at place value and had a go at problem-solving. Class 4 showed so much perseverance with their trial and error methods and are focusing on explaining their maths thinking clearly.

Autumn 1 Week 1 – Welcome back

Stars of the week: Kyann and Aya-Grace

Thank you Kyann and Aya-Grace for being such kind and supportive friends to the new children in our class. You have been excellent role models and you have made them feel very welcome.

Well done to Class 4 for a fantastic first week back at school. I have been so impressed with your eagerness and positive attitude to learning and it means we have already managed to achieve so much.

In English we wrote persuasive letters to convince me of the monitor jobs they thought they should have. Class 4 are so helpful that I am sure we will now have a very organised classroom.

We are looking at place value in maths and Class 4 showed me how well they could work in pairs to solve the questions.

We are hoping for lots of learning challenges this year so have made perseverance posters to help us to stay motivated and encourage our resilience.

Summer 2 – Week 6

Stars of the week: Sebastian and Dawud

Well done Sebastian for winning the sibling of the year award – that is fantastic news! Well done Dawud for your fantastic singing during our rehearsals for the play.

Last week, we had sports week and we all really enjoyed the brilliant activities Miss Fishwick had planned for us! We also loved supporting the women’s Fifa World Cup! In English, we wrote scene settings imagining we were at the Stade de Lyon for the final match. We had a fantastic afternoon for Sports Day and loved competing against each other in all of the races. Well done Class 4 for your brilliant team spirit!

Well done to Grace and Lola for being excellent monitors for our new Dojo Points rewards!! You have been doing a fantastic job!

Summer 2 – Week 2 – Myths and Legends

Stars of the week: Franklin and Aldara

Well done Franklin you have worked extremely hard on your writing over the last few weeks. Well done Aldara you have worked really hard at your decimals this week.

This week class 4 have been exploring myths and legends. We have discussed what a myth and a legend is, what the message in the story might be and what might be fact or fiction. We have written a character description of the Minotaur and re-written our own version of Pandora’s box.

Summer 2 – Week 1 – Fractions and Decimals!

Stars of the week: All of Class 4

Well done Class 4 for working extremely well with your learning partners to practise your fractions and decimals.

This week class 4 have worked extremely well in groups and with learning partners to practise their fraction and decimal knowledge. They were very helpful to each other and worked together to solve the calculations. We have been working really hard throughout this year on our maths explanation. I was very proud to see that you are all becoming brilliant at explaining maths problems to a partner! Well done everyone!
