Paua Shell Class Weekly News
What a fantastic day Year 4 had on Monday! It was Roman Day and the children had so much fun. Thank you to all parent helpers, who made the day extra special.
Paua 4 have been designing and planning their Roman Mosaic design, using up to three different colours.
Monday 11th November 2019 – Friday 15th November 2019
Year 4 use Rising Stars to teach spelling patterns and rules. In part of today`s lesson for ‘cian’ suffixes we played a looping game – matching definitions with a ‘cian’ word, which eventually went round in a continuous circle. Three competitive groups, but good fun and lots of learning involed!
In Paua 4 we have learnt how to create an electrical circuit to include a bulb, buzzer, switch, motor and other metal components. We used all our knowledge and creativity to create a toy or game using a circuit.
More electrical circuit games.
Paua Shell 4 have created silhouette scenes from the Iron Man, which come from the beginning of the book.
This week Paua Shell 4 have been lucky enough to handle lunar and meteorite samples which NASA have lent the school – a fantastic learning experience! We looked at a clip of Apollo 11 landing on the moon and the race to be the first on it.
This week Paua Shell had an outdoor lesson, using an Iron Man poem to create their own poems and sculpture an Iron Man in the sand. During design and technology everyone continued making their 3D Iron Man models.
Paua 4 visited Hadleigh Country Park to see the Iron Age Roundhouse.
Here are just some of the exciting things we got up to.
Paua shell 4 have used charcoal and chalks to crest their own fantastic images of the Iron Man.
