A few pictures from Christmas Jumper Day. Thanks everyone for the donations. We even saw an elf!
On Tuesday of this week, the children had the Year 4 Christmas Day. Decorations, a calendar and a Christmas card were made - here are some of the finished articles. Well done to all!
Welcome back Year 4! It was great to see everyone back in school safely and we have been very impressed with the work children have completed at home. A selection can be seen here including a home made string telephone.
This year’s remembrance activities on 11.11 were confined to the classroom. However, Year 4 were still able to decorate a remembrance themed poem with poppies and they took part in a virtual two minute silence.
Since returning after half-term, Year 4 have started a new topic all about sound. We did several demonstrations such as placing a tuning fork into water and banging a drum with small objects on the drum skin. The children observed that all sounds are created using vibrations.
Each week Cockle Class get the chance to use our ICT suite. Recently, the children have been learning how to use MS Teams and they have also had the chance to use TT Rockstars.
On Wednesday afternoons, Year 4 take part in a music lesson with Mrs Brown. Currently they are learning to play tunes on the glockenspiel. We also took advantage of some brighter weather to get a class photo outside to celebrate 100% attendance.
This week, Year 4 have been learning how to use apostrophes. They now know there are two uses for an apostrophe and have been busy practicing applying their knowledge. This week’s spellings are now available on MS Teams and focus on this objective; you should be able to access them using your child’s log in details.
On Wednesday Cockle Class came dressed in non-uniform to raise funds for the local ‘Gold Geese’ charity. Thanks to everyone for the fantastic efforts at dressing in gold, yellow and orange and for the generous donations!
This week, Cockle Class got the chance to do practical work in Science. They used equipment to build different circuits and check whether the circuit design worked or not. They could then describe a circuit as being ‘complete’ or ‘incomplete.’
Year 4 have started reading the classic story of The Iron Man which they are very much enjoying. Our art lesson this week was linked to this and involved creating our own versions of The Iron Man using chalks. The results will be proudly on display very soon!
Welcome back everyone! The children in Cockle Class have made a brilliant start back and have had a very busy couple of days. Here they are making paper penguins to demonstrate what it means to have a Growth Mindset.
What a fantastic start to the term from our new Year 4s! Here they using using the special ‘Now Press Play’ equipment which links to our Science topic on electricity. A great session from everyone.
Cockle Class have had a marvellous week full of many firsts. Here they are taking part in their first indoor P.E. session. Well done to everyone for organising the kits in good time.
