Welcome to Year 4!
When you visit your child's classroom during the next parent morning don't forget to stop and take a look at the new displays. They showcase a wide range of the children's fantastic work which they have completed so far this year.
During an art lesson the children looked at the various skills required when working with clay. They looked at the different tools which can be used to create texture, and techniques to create sculptures such as pulling and pinching clay, adding pieces, smoothing using fingers and creating holes and hollows. The children created some fantastic detailed sculptures of woodland animals.
To link with this half terms topic, Class 9 completed a PE lesson where the children moved to music and imagined they were trees and woodland animals. What fabulous dances they created!
Class 9 and 10 have enjoyed a carousel of activities today all linked to 'Big Maths'. All the children were engaged in activities with a focus to this week's unit on addition. They spent ten minutes on each activity and worked in teams to solve problems and practice skills.
Here are a group of children from class 10, busy working on their maths task, in the barn. They measured the lengths of British birds and then completed some problems based on what they found.
Miss Hipwell and Mrs Pye are very enthusiastic to join their new classes as they begin Year 4. Miss Hipwell is the class teacher in class 10 and Miss Tilley is the teaching assistant. In class 9, Mrs Pye is the class teacher and Mrs Brown is the teaching assistant. The children have settled well into the daily routine of Year 4 and have already produced some excellent work. This half-term our Learning Journey is 'Living in Harmony'.
