In maths we enjoyed working together to find fractions of amounts. We focused on finding halves and quarters.
Class 4 went on a flower hunt to find out how many types of flowering plants are in our school garden. We found daisies, dandelions and blossom.
We identified the different parts of a flower and found out about what each part does.
Class 4 have been reading o’clock and half past times in their maths lessons this week. We also had fun solving some time word problems.
Everyone in Class 4 had a fantastic time visiting Openzone @ The Word this week. We had fun using 2Create on the laptops to design an outfit for Barnaby Bear and even made our own story with moving characters! Then we visited the green screen room to record a video all about Barnaby Bear’s travels. We went to London, France, China and Australia. 🙂
Class 4 also did brilliantly in their assembly all about ‘being healthy’. Lots of wonderful acting and singing. Well done, Class 4!
In Class 4 we have had lots of fun using the brand new running track. It is great for keeping our brains active and keeping us fit!
In literacy we have been learning about the prefix ‘un’. We know that it changes the meaning of a root word.
We had fun matching cards with root words to their corresponding prefix words and adding the words to sentences.
A big well done to Class 4 for their fantastic Spring Show this week.
Happy Easter, everyone!
Class 4 have been learning all about France this week as part of our ‘Barnaby Bear’ topic. We learned that the capital city of France is Paris. We also found out about the flag of France, French food, and famous landmarks such as the Eiffel Tower.
This week was British Science Week. Class 4 carried out out a science investigation to find out which material would be the best to use to make a pair of curtains for the three bears, after Goldilocks ripped their old curtains when she tried to escape out of the window!
We tested five different materials – paper, foil, plastic, wood and fabric.
We held the materials up to the light to find out whether they were transparent or opaque.
We tried bending the materials to find out if they were flexible or rigid.
We pulled and stretched the materials to find out if they were strong.
Our findings showed that the fabric was the best material to use as it was soft, opaque, flexible and strong.
What a fantastic Mother’s Day assembly highlighting the importance of saying thank you to our mums and all of the ladies who love and care for us. Class 4 worked so hard to make it the best assembly yet.
All of the children would like to say a big “Happy Mother’s Day” for Sunday. 😊
