We have been making roads using the blocks and talking about road safety during our play. We made our own traffic lights to use when playing with the cars and people. We know that red means STOP and green means GO.
Class 4 had a brilliant time at the Mini Tennis Festival at Temple Park. They learned new racket skills and played lots of different games including balloon rally, bean bag relay, ball volley and floor tennis.
We had a super spooky time at our Halloween party this week.
This week, the children in class 4 made structures based on the playground equipment at Chester-Le-Street Park. They used recycled materials to create swings, slides, roundabouts and climbing frames.
This week we have been looking at different shaped foods. We made our own pizzas and used our literacy skills to read the recipe and our maths skills to count out the ingredients. We watched the pizza go from a circle into a triangle when we cut a slice to eat.
Class 4 enjoyed taking part in lots of different reading activities during our guided reading session this week. In groups, they read books, played phonics games, made words using phase 3 sounds, read tricky words and used them in sentences, and had fun using reading apps on the iPads.
The children in class 4 did brilliantly in their ‘Farmer Duck’ assembly today, which was all about working together and being a team. We know how important it is to help and care for one another.
The children all worked very hard to learn their lines. Well done, everyone!
This week we have been learning about birthdays. We played a guessing game where we had to guess what was inside each present by looking at the shape and feeling it.
We voted for our new school council members this week. Each child put their votes into a ballot box and the votes were counted up. Two children from each class were then chosen to be our new school council members. They are all feeling very excited!
