Our completed mosaic in Y4

Comments about our Liturgy. 30.11.18

 

I liked it that we were all together and that we each had a part. AK

 

My favourite part was listening to the Bible. AM

 

I liked the topic because it shows that we belong to God. JO

 

I thought it was amazing. ZC

 

The liturgy was good because it was well presented and it was shown in God's way. JB

Boccia Tournament 21.11.18

To say that it was our first experience at Boccia the Y4 pupils performed excellently in today's tournament consisting of 22 teams and over 100 pupils.

Our best team today was made up of Ola, Joel, Scarlett and Dylan who won their group and made it to the semi finals. Unfortunately they were beaten 2-0.

Of the other teams, 3 finished runners up in their groups losing out  on a head to head basis. The remaining teams finished 3rd, 4th and 5th respectively.

Players that stood out were Scarlett, Patrick, Kaelan and Ava.

I would like to thank parents and staff for their support at the event .

Author visit- Stephen Pass

Today, Stephen Pass, author of Madge the Mermaid visited our school to inspire our young writers. He told us about his job previous to becoming an author as a journalist and then described how his change to children's story writing began. Stephen explained how he wrote the book and the time it took to develop his ideas through drafting and editing at various stages. We listened to him read parts of the book and took turns to read some ourselves. The pupils thoroughly enjoyed the visit. Thank you Stephen.

Y4 Liturgy-Friends

Year 4 delivered a small liturgy on Friday afternoon to the class to round off their work about friends. It consisted of work covered about our family and God's family. Pupils gave information about Solomon, Ruth and told the story of Joseph and his coat. Pupils read out prayers and listened to the song of Abraham.

Basketball Competition

Having practiced skills and game play over the past 5 weeks we ended with an inter house competition. Throughout the event there was some excellent dribbling by William, fantastic shooting by Leo and Josh, brilliant catching by Zuzanna and good all round play by Elena and Nicoll. After winning all three of their games the yellow team, Kirkstall came out on top. Well done to you.

 

Diversity Week

As part of our diversity week Y4 experienced Chinese Calligraphy. After looking at the history, tools and techniques used in Chinese Calligraphy the pupils set about writing the numbers 1-10 and 2,345.

Museum visit to explore the Romans.

Y4 had a fantastic day at Doncaster Museum today and discovered lots of new things about history and the Romans. The morning was spent exploring archaeology and its importance in learning about the past. Pupils looked at artefacts and discussed what they were and what uses they might have had. The afternoon was spent looking at the Roman invasion of Britain and the settlement that the Romans built in Doncaster. Pupils dressed as different Roman people from soldiers to rich and poor people and children. There was even a male and female Celt costume to see.  Activities included designing a mosaic, identifying the uses of artefacts, planning for a meal and playing a Roman board game. I must say that the behaviour and participation by all pupils was excellent. Thank you

Identifying features of diaries, representing numbers in different ways and being scientists by making observations.
