We had a brilliant Spanish Day in Class 4 and managed to squeeze so much in! We played number games, researched and made fact files about Spain, used atlas’ to find Spanish-speaking countries, had a visit from Aldara’s dad AND made Gaudi inspired mosaics! Well done Class 4 for your amazing energy and effort 🙂 Here are some photos to give you a flavour of our day…

Stars of the week: Samantha & Leonna.
In Class 4, we have been learning about Pablo Picasso. Not only have we been experimenting with his artistic style, but we have also made posters and written informatively about his life and artistic influences.
In Science we recreated the digestive system. This will be reinforced, next week, in our school trip to the Science Museum. We also have a dentist coming in to talk to us about keeping our teeth and gums healthy.
In our Viking learning this week, we learnt about Danegeld, performed the poem by Rudyard Kipling and wrote our own verse. Feel free to ask Class 4 to explain what Danegeld is.
Stars of the Week: Romeo & Courtney
Well done Romeo and Courtney for showing so much enthusiasm and dedication in your place value maths learning. Keep it up!
Bored of normal life? Well come and join our long-ships! Class 4 have been Viking leaders this week, writing persuasively to try and convince people to join their long-ships. We have been including rhetorical questions, exaggerated language, alliteration and the rule of three. We continued the theme of persuasive writing and the children used drama to try and convince the class that they should be made king!
This week in Class 4 we started our recorder lessons with David. We got off to a great start. We have 14 sessions with David and we cannot wait to see the progress.
In science this week we have been looking at the enzymes found in saliva that break down our food. After 2 minutes of chewing a piece of bread, it went soggy and sweet. Class 4 discovered the enzymes in their mouths were definitely working!
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.
