Our Learning

 

12th October 2018

This week we have been learning...

 

Well done everyone for working so hard this week!

Thank you to all those who attended Parent’s evening on Wednesday. It was lovely to meet all the new Year 3 parents and to see some familiar faces for our Year 4 children.

In English this week, we have completed our newspaper reports linked to Fairy tales. The children did a great job of trying to include all the necessary features and the work they produced was excellent! We have also started our new unit on performance poetry. The children have analysed and review poems linked to the Great Plague. The children were very successful at finding examples of rhyming couplets, similes, alliteration and even metaphors!

In Maths, we have come to the end of our place value topic and have completed work on rounding to the nearest 10 / 100 / 1000 and negative numbers.

In Creative, we have been learning about the importance of recycling to reduce our carbon footprint on the planet. We looked at which materials can be reused or recycled and the children have used recyclable materials to design and create a class caterpillar.

In PE, we have continued working on our dance skills of turning, gestures and travelling and the children used these skills well in their 'fight' scene between a hero and a villain. The children's ball handling skill are developing well in outdoor PE and we have focused on bouncing this week as well as continuing to practice chest passes. 

Have a lovely weekend!

This week we have been learning...

 

In English this week we have started our newspaper topic. We have looked at lots of different reports and identified the different features that are included. Try to look at home for examples of more reports in preparation for writing our own reports next week. 

Our place value topic has continued in Maths with the children looking at 10 / 100 / 1000 more and less with increasingly larger numbers. 

The children have written some fantastic diary entries for our Plague topic and came up with some very interesting reasons for and against the quarantine of a village in order to prevent the spread of the plague. We continued to look at the actions of the rats in our indoor PE session, looking at creating sequences showing how they would travel in different settings. The weather this Friday was dry so we finally managed this week to get outside for PE and practise our catching and throwing skills, focusing on the chest pass. 

It was a lovely end to our Homes topic in RE in which the children planned and carried out a beautiful collective worship, reflecting on what makes a house a home. 

Have a lovely weekend everyone smiley

This week we have been learning...

 

This week we have been busy writing our Pied Piper stories in English lessons. We are extremely proud of our writing and can't wait to put it up on display in the corridor for you all to see. We have continued our theme of fairy tales in our PE lessons and have been exploring dance sequences and travelling movements for the Pied Piper and the many rats! 

In Maths we are continuing to work hard on our knowledge and understanding of place value. Number lines have proved to be a little tricky this week so well done to the children who kept persevering with this. 

In our Creative lessons we have continued to learn some more about the Plague. The children have been fascinated by this topic and loved the silent role play that we completed. I have to say there were some very convincing plague victims!! 

In our RE lessons we have looked at what makes a house a home and have thought about the ways Christians can live as people chosen by God.
