The children were set the challenge of producing a coastal scene as part of this term’s geography topic and they came up with some wonderful results! Featuring everything from lighthouses to seagulls and beach parasols, they really outdid themselves!
Ahead of producing a persuasive letter, the children shared Oliver Jeffers’ The Day The Crayons Quit and discussed the value of each colour crayon. They then picked one and recorded in their groups the reasons why their colour is the best. After sharing their ideas, they then went up against another colour and debated who was best using a range of persuasive language and openers.
The children enjoyed a morning of sporting challenges when some outside coaches came in to run a series of activities on Monday (September 6).
Coordinated alongside sports leaders from Year 6, the children took part in running shuttles, beanbag throws, long jumps and hurdle challenges as part of the session.
The scores were totalled up and wristbands and medals were given out to the best performing children. They have now been set the challenge of practising at home before the coaches return in three weeks to check on their progress.
The class rounded off a fantastic Year 4 with a day of board games, LEGO, cards, a film and rocket lollies! It was lovely to see them playing so nicely and enjoying each other’s company one last time before the summer break.
Well done, we look forward to seeing each other again in September!
Year 4 rounded off their Romans topic for the Summer term by learning all about the diet of the Romans before making spelt bread. Mixing spelt flour with salt and mixing well, they then added olive oil and water to make their dough. After kneading it into a circular shape they then put it into the oven for 45 minutes to bake before slicing it up and tasting it! Yum!
The children enjoyed a well-earned and long-overdue day out at Wollaton Park in the sunshine on Wednesday. After spending time playing in the park, they visited the new T Rex Is King exhibition in Wollaton Hall before lunch and played games on the grass afterwards.
The children in Year 4 have been busy recording their own sounds at home using household objects. Given the brief to record a variety of sounds of varying volume and pitch, the children recorded the decibel level and then sent in their efforts as part of our current Science topic. Here are a few of them…
YEAR 4 rounded off another busy week with a jam-packed day of activities! Top of the bill was sports day where they took part in sprint, egg and spoon and obstacles races, the day also included time on the climbing frame in the hall, journal writing with Mrs Moss, teamwork games on the playground and meditation.
THE children had a whale of time at the Year 4 Sleepover when the whole class slept in the hall. After setting up their beds for the night, the children enjoyed time with their friends on the field, before coming together for pizza and drinks. They then drank hot chocolate and watched Over The Moon before they bedded in for the night for a well-earned rest!
