Snakes and Ladders!

posted 11 Jan 2018, 07:20 by Hannah Clark   [ updated 11 Jan 2018, 07:21 ]

Today in RE, we played snakes and ladders. We used the game to discuss what Hindus mean by the word 'Karma'. We used the idea that if you did anything wrong, you went down a snake and if you did something good, you went up a ladder. We discussed how we felt when both of these things happened and related it to why we thought that Hindu's seek good karma.

      

Measure up!

posted 8 Jan 2018, 08:08 by Hannah Clark

Today in maths, we started looking at measure. To find out what we already knew, we explored different measuring instruments and has to decide which one we needed to use to measure different things such as a mere stick for the length of the door but a ruler for the length of our book. We had lots of discussions and debates about the measuring we were doing!

     

Rainforests!

This half term Year Four will be looking at Rainforests. Today we kicked off our topic with a letter from a Toucan. He told us the rainforests were in trouble, and asked for our help to raise awareness. We looked carefully at and researched different layers of the rainforests, then teamed up as a class to make a display to teach each other about the different layers.


Get your mittens out!

This term we have been looking at the poles. To help us with the cold, we have created our own mittens. Firstly, we had to design them to make sure that we knew exactly what we needed. Then we had to make a paper template to work out the fit. Then using sewing skills and great concentration we created our mittens out of felt.

This half term in ICT, we have been looking at coding. Using scratch, we have created our very own cat and mouse games. We chose whether we would like to copy videos, use a work sheet, using clues or work it out independently when doing our coding. We have made our games so that when the cat touches the mouse the cat gets point and when the mouse goes on the goal they get points. We have been playing the games with our friends! We are now working on making our game unique so that we have 30 different games to play!

    

Gases!

posted 22 Nov 2017, 23:43 by Hannah Clark

This week in science, we have been investigating what a gas is. We thought about all of the different gases around us and we came to the conclusion that gas was nothing. However, we did some experiments to find out what a gas was. We weighed it after blowing up a balloon, we tried to remove it from a closed container and we found it in containers when we poured water over something. We found out that gas is everywhere, and the particles have a big part to play!

    

Girls do football!

Today in PE, the girls had a football taster session with a coach. We played lots of games to do with offending and attacking. We got put into teams and spent the time learning how to control the ball and then going to attack. We had lots of fun playing new games and learning the game of football!

     

Gymnastics Fun!

In PE, we have been looking at Gymnastics with Mr Watts. This week, we have been exploring different balances, on our own as well as with our friends. We had to think about how we can do our balances without wobbling. This meant keeping focused and trying to keep our head up. We find some interesting shapes that we could balance in!



  

The same but different!

posted 6 Nov 2017, 09:00 by Hannah Clark

This half term, we have been looking at similarities and differences between people. Today we looked at differences that are caused by health problems or disabilities. We discussed how these aspects impacted on their every day lives. We then created drama pieces to explain how we could include people with these differences in our activities and aspects we do in our day to day lives.
 
    

Talk for Writing

posted 2 Nov 2017, 03:49 by Hannah Clark

In Literacy, we have been looking at persuasive writing. To help us remember some of the persuasive language, we have used talk for writing. In groups, we came up with actions to help us remember the paragraph. We then tried to see if we could remember our paragraphs without looking at the handout.
