Class 4

Welcome to Class 4's page!

We are enthusiastic learners who work hard and help each other.  Class 4 is a team and Miss Graham, Pat, Mrs Misselbrook and Miss Davies join us in making Year 5 and 6 the best place to be.

Tom and Jerry

Don"t you just love our Class 4 Guinea Pigs.

At the moment they're now on their holidays at Elaine's house.

I wonder if she'll get used to the squeaking as much as we are missing it. 

Rainbow Trail

As much as we love being in school, the current situation wont allow that to happen. In light of this some pupils were doing their best to make things as cheery as possible. On Monday we painted rainbows as part of the ongoing phenomena that encourages children who are being home schooled to paint rainbows as a cheerful 'keep smiling' message.

We think they did a great job.

Spanish Club

Hola!

Welcome to Spanish club. Here in class 4 we have been learning about Greetings, asking how we all are and saying good morning and good afternoon. We have been using our 'Spanish friend' puppets to help us out and have mini conversations.

Spanish Club happens Tuesday lunchtime and all of KS2 will be welcome to attend. Next time we have chosen to learn animal vocabulary.

Class 4 just love books!

We have had a bit of a reshuffle in the reading corner- added some more comfy cushions and throws and now everyone wants to be in there.

Book talk is going strong and we all love to have a chat about the books we are reading and the ones we recommend.

Each half term our regular readers, who have earned their 'Starbooks' loyalty card, enjoy some time out with hot chocolate and biscuits.

This week's Science lessons have all been about plants. We have studied them, dissected them, found out each part of the plant's function and drawn them. We've been on a class hunt, matched images and functions, labelled diagrams and counted petals. Even out of school, the plant fascination continues- with daily updates on how our seeds are developing at home.

Exciting times ahead -as we move to draw, paint, print and make 3d plants- Watch this space!

Greek Meze

As part of our Ancient Greek Topic we have been learning how to make Greek Meze- little dishes of Greek Food. We tasted lots of different Greek food- some of which we liked- Yogurt and honey, Feta Cheese- and some of which we didn't like- Olives! We also tried Spanakopita (Feta and spinich pastries), Halloumi, Hummus and Tzatziki. We then made our own versions. Next time, we are moving on to design and make our own Greek inspired Flat breads.

Guided Reading :The Titanic

We've now reached the exciting time in the year when we study 'The Titanic'. Alongside our novel, 'The Titanic Detective Agency', we will be looking at lots of non-fiction texts too.

This week we investigated vocabulary and literacy features of some of the text.

Guided Reading: The Arrival

All of our guided reading texts have been based upon 'journeys' with a particular reference to journeys that characters have made for migration. We have looked at stories such as 'The Day War Came', 'The Journey' and 'when Jessie Came Across the Sea'. Our favourite so far has been 'The Arrival' By Shaun Tan.

This wordless picture book tell of a story of a man who leaves his family to go to a strange and very different country. Because the book has no words, it was up to us to try and work out what what happening in the story- using inference and gathering information from the illustrations.

Migration to Britain : A Timeline

Migration to Britain : A Timeline 1
Migration to Britain : A Timeline 2
As part of our Journey's Topic, our history focus has been on the migration of people to ad from Britain. We looked back at the earliest migrants, The Bronze age 'Beaker People', who came to our shores about 1000 BC. We then completed a timeline by looking at other ancient, then more recent, migrants.

Science: Classifying and Sorting

Science: Classifying and Sorting 1
Science: Classifying and Sorting 2
Class 4 have been looking at classification of animals. We brushed up on our prior knowledge of sorting animals into their key groups, before going on to make our own classification keys.

In our move up days, we discussed what we were interested in and what we wanted to learn more about as well as what we'd like to improve as personal targets.

We wrote all over large pieces of paper and Miss Graham collated our ideas using them and the National Curriculum to create our yearly plan.
