IMPORTANT

Please be aware that we are still having to open windows and doors to create ventilation through the classroom throughout the Winter months. I would advise that pupils are sent to school with enough layers to prevent them from getting cold. This could be in the form off vests, skins or fleeces. I will try to rotate places as much as possible so that the same people are not in the same position for longer than necessary. Thank you in advance for your understanding.

Y4 Orienteering 18.6.21

We completed our sports week with an orienteering extravaganza this morning. Lots of teamwork was evident as the pupils completed various tasks. They included creating a picture from jigsaw pieces, finding numbers on cones and the letter it corresponded to and finding different symbols. Then they had to find symbols at different points returning to base after each one so that the next person could go. We then moved to explore the area further with races against each team. Again finding points that led us to the next until a code word was found. The pupils really enjoyed the session and could not believe how quickly the time had gone by.

Final Results were as follows

1st Team - 53 points

2nd Team 5 - 49 points

3rd Team 1 - 42 points

4th Team 6 - 40 points

5th Team 2 - 37 points

6th Team 3 - 31 points

Well done to Team 4 of Isla, Jenson, Jude, Caiden and Saria who were the winners.

Y4 French Boules (our version)

Using a hoop as a target each pupil threw 2 boules in turn. Those still in the hoop scored points. After playing a round of small group games pupils were allocated points for a win and a draw. The final results were as follows

1st Jack 19 pts

2nd Analise 18 pts

=3rd Oscar, Louis, Caiden and Ivy 16 pts

 

This was something different but enjoyed by all.

Y4 European Football Competition 17.6.21

This morning we played our Euro Competition. Denmark, Ukraine, France and Portugal were the competitors. After playing each other once in a league basis two teams were level on points.

Basketball Shoot Out 17.6.21

We had 5 rounds of shoot out with the winners of each progressing to the winners circle. They were Isaak, Jack, Scarlett H-E (twice), Jude, Analise, Veera, Isaac, Zainah and Molly. Following a tense round of free shooting Isaak came out as the winner. 

Basketball Shoot Out

Y4 Euro Penalty Shoot Out 16.6.21

The shoot out provided us with lots of shocks as some of the favourites left the competition in the early rounds. This left it open for some surprises to the Final. The semis were played between Netherlands (Frankie and Amaarah) and Belgium (Molly and Louis) with Belgium winning 2-1. The second semi final went to sudden death with Spain (Gabriel and Scarlett H-E) against Scotland (Isaak and Ivy). Spain progressed 4-3 after 7 penalties each.

So the final was between Belgium and Spain. Belgium scored both of their penalties putting pressure on Spain who missed their final shot and so BELGIUM (Louis and Molly) were the WINNERS.

 

Well done to all participants.

Y4 Tennis Competition 7.5.21

What a great run of sessions we have had. The weather has not affected any and so improvement has been fantastic. We have built up our hand, eye co-ordination and physical stamina through activities like ball balance, ball bounce, movement shuffle and sprint, target shot and tactics to name a few. The competition was run around a series of courts where pupils rotated to play 7 different pupils. There were some fantastic rallies and choice of shots by many pupils. The use of forehand and backhand shots were shown by many pupils. There were a number of games that were won by 1 or 2 points. 

The final results are as follows:

Joint first: Jack and Frankie

Joint second: Isaak, Amaarah and Caiden

Well done to all pupils.

Welcome back everyone. I hope that you have had a restful break. PE days are the same this term but pupils should come in their PE kit and stay in it all day.

I will post some of the work and activities on here should any pupils need to self isolate or are  away due to illness. Fingers crossed that we all keep safe and well.

The end of our Basketball sessions culminated in a 6 team competition. Throughout the games it was pleasing to see the improved dribbling, catching and shooting skills shown by all pupils. Veera and Isla were great at catching, Jack was a great allrounder, Isaac dribbled well and both Frankie and Isaak produced some fantastic shots. The competition was close with the winner coming after taking goal difference into consideration. The winners were Team 1. Isla, Veera, Gabriel, Scarlett Mc, and Frankie. Well done to you all.

25.11.20 No Pens Wednesday

So today has been no pens Wednesday. An ideal opportunity to create our own and class mosaics. We started by looking at different mosaics and how they were made. Discovering that the pieces were made mainly from cut stones, smoothed down by rubbing rocks against them. They were 8 to 10mm in size and some even smaller! They called the pieces tesserae. A mortar was used to fix them in place. Wealthy people had more intricate designs.

The stages of making our own mosaics.

Reading books will be sent home on Friday from this week and will need to be returned on the Monday after the weekend. They will then be left for the required 72 hours before we can use them in school. Pupils will then be listened to read in school at least once that week and books will be sent home accordingly.

Year 4 Hockey Competition.

Following weeks of PE and learning different hockey skills we finished with a competition of four teams who played each other twice. As the games progressed the skill level increased as did the game play and positioning of players. The competition was eventually won by the RED team who managed to adjust to the intensity of the competition quickest. They scored the most goals and conceded the fewest. Well done to Frankie, Harry, Nello, Alex, Isaak and Gabriel.

Also, a mention must be given to Annalise for her tenacity in the tackle, Arina's close ball skills, Jenson's array of passing, Isaac B's positioning, Louis's fair play attitude and Jack's dribbles.

23.10.20 What have we been doing this week?

In English we have written up our diaries which was fun and now we are working on newspaper reports. We have designed ABBA album front covers and they turned out quite well. We used pastels and felt tips for it. In Maths  we enjoyed doing negative numbers. I loved counting in 25's. When we were rounding to the nearest 1,000 I found it a little hard. In PE our topic is jumping and we've been jumping for height and distance. We have learned how to sound proof a room and in Topic we learned about Boudicca and her rebellion and wrote about how people felt before it. We like our Topic.

Maths: Rounding to the nearest 1,000, counting in 25's, negative numbers, multiplication and division  facts recall.

 

English: Complete diary work and move onto Newspapers

 

What have we done this week?

Over the last week in year 4 we have been learning about rounding to the nearest 10, 100 and 1,000. In PE we have been doing hockey and learning to dribble, pass and shoot. With Dan from Active Fusion we have used our leg strength to push off the ground to make us faster at running. On Monday we drew Celtic people and learned about Boudicca’s rebellion and then we drew people whose lives were changed because of the rebellion. In Science we learned about vibrations and pitch. We learned how sound waves need air to travel, so sound cannot travel in space. In Reciprocal Reading we are looking at Krindlekrax. We found out that Corky and Ruskin are friends. We have been learning about Abba and listening to different songs like Mama Mia, Dancing Queen, Winner Takes It All and Louis’s favourite, Waterloo. In English we watched videos of volcanic eruptions to help with our diary writing to work alongside our book Escape from Pompeii.
