Year 4A

Dragons Den Afternoon

4A have had a very successful Dragons Den afternoon. The children enjoyed sharing their inventions with each other and using their writing to try and sell them! The top inventions, as voted for by the children, included a hover board that cooked you a pizza on the way to school (who wouldn't want that), a bedside table that helped you get dressed in the morning and a virtual reality game. Simple pleasures!

Year 4 have been lucky enough to have a real cricket coach join us this half term! He has been helping us learn how to catch and bowl so far. We have learned some top tips!

This afternoon year 4 have been doing a little bit of junk modelling. As part of our explanation and planet protector topics, we have been competing in a 'Dragon's Den' style competition. Today we were making prototypes of our brand new inventions! 


Hey! I've just met these... 11's, they're crazy! I'm gunna roll my numbers, so don't be lazy!

The children have been creating their very own rolling number songs again. Taking the tune from 'Call me Maybe' as inspiration. I'm getting pretty impressed with their creative skills! 


Today we've got this feeling inside our bones! (Rolling 12s)

A little bit of Red Nose Day talk for writing action.

Today we have been looking at formal and informal letter writing. We focused in on a letter sent to Harry, trying to convince him to attend Hogwarts. We started off our talk for writing together and then split off into groups to finish the letter!

Thank you for lending me your children for the night! We had fantastic fun climbing, caving, canoeing and shooting some arrows! We learned how to work together as a team and kept up our energy levels right until home time (when lots of us fell asleep!) 


Baking up a rainforest storm!

We had a little surprise bake off yesterday afternoon! The children had to work in teams to create a tropical fruit, yoghurt cake! They took quite a while to cook and we are very much looking forward to the tasting session this afternoon! 


Hockey

The children have been working hard on their hockey skills over the past few weeks. We have been making sure we bend our legs (not our backs!) and have been learning how to pass accurately with some fun games!
