Welcome to 4J. Our teacher is Miss Jones and our teaching assistant is Mrs Calleja. We have had a very busy first week but we have settled well into Year 4. As well as working hard we also like to have fun!
Thank you Mrs Lowson!
From April, we have been working with Mrs Lowson on food hygiene. We have looked at the temperature in kitchens, how to wash our hands and utensils before cooking and how food is prepared and made around the world. On Friday Mrs Kerwin presented us with our food hygiene certificates as we have all listened carefully and participated well in the lessons. Thank you for teaching us how to be safe in the kitchen Mrs Lowson!
Prayer week visitors
Thank you to our 2 visitors, Becky Da Mota and Jean Macdonald for coming in during Prayer week. We asked lots of questions about their churches and Catholicism.
Welcome back to our final term in year four.
Swimming (Summer 2 for 4J), Visits to Unsworth Chapel and Mere Sands Wood and designing habitats are just some of the fun things that we have planned. As ever any questions or problems please don't hesitate to ask
Design Technology - Making bread
We have had a fantastic day making bread. We have used many new skills such as kneading to ensure the bread has time to prove and is able to bake. We are looking forward to taking our bread home and tasting it! Look at the pictures below showing the different processes of bread making from flour to finished product!
World Book Day 2017
Wow! What a weird looking bunch 4J are! Thank you to everyone for the wonderful costumes the children dressed up in. They had a lovely day talking about their favourite characters from books, discussing their favourite book and authors and creating a front cover for their favourite book.
Thank you very much to Hope Hassoun for bringing in some delicious cakes for us to eat as a treat!
In the photos below you can see the children's amazing costumes, and some of the staff. Look out for Wally! He appears a few times, can you spot him?
We are raring to go this half term with lots of lovely work to look forward to. We are starting our topic on the Normans, we have World book day to look forward to and spending our enterprise money on some equipment for DT and Art. We are will also be looking at the story of Jesus in the run up to Easter and focusing on our Christian value of Trust.
Thank you Mrs Barlow for coming in and showing us some bones. We were amazed at how big some of our bones are and how small some of our bones are! During our talk on bones we were raided by small pirates from Reception. They made Mrs Sim walk the plank!
Fitness and Fireworks!
We are very lucky to have Mr Ridway supporting us in our PE this half term. He is teaching us lots of ways to keep healthy and look after our health. During today's lesson, Dave our site manager kept us safe while we watched fireworks to start out 'Let there be Light!' Topic. We had lots of fun listening and watching the fireworks, especially the last one which made a massive BANG! We then carried on with our PE lesson! We were exhausted at the end of the day!
We played sit down Volleyball and blind football in our PE lesson today. It was difficult at times but it also made us appreciate how hard the Paralympians train and work hard to be the best they can be. At the end of our lesson we created an obstacle course. One person in each team was blindfolded, we had to work together to help each other through the obstacle course without knocking anything or falling over. It was tough but also good for our listening skills and team work skills.
Science - High and low pitches
We had so much fun today in science playing musical instruments. We used a glockenspiel, guitar and recorder to see how they make high and low pitches. Some children in the class used their own instruments. It was a very noisy lesson!
St John Ambulance
St John Ambulance came in today and taught us some very valuable lessons. We were taught how to put someone in a recovery position, how to stop a nose bleed and how to bandage some one up if they were bleeding. Thank you to the volunteers for helping us learn these skills.
We were part of a lovely church service for Harvest today. We read a poem as a Year group called Harvest time. It was lovely to see so many families there and also the lovely gifts everyone gave to church to help others. Mrs Calleja put up our Thankfulness display in church (see picture below). We all made a heart showing all of the things we are thankful for.
Anglo - Saxon Settlements
Thank you to all of the families who came and helped us make our settlements. We are very proud of them and enjoyed working as a team to make them.
We have had a fantastic day today at Tatton park. We learned how Anglo - Saxons used natural resources for every day living like grinding flour, twig collecting and bread making. We were also taught how to use shields to protect ourselves against Vikings! We found out more information about settlements ready to make our own at the end of next week. Thank you to all of our parents for making our fantastic costumes! There are lots of photos of us taking part in our Anglo - Saxons activities, take a look!
