What a fantastic term Autumn was, and we are really looking forward to the Spring Term ahead.
It is going to be an action-packed term with Survival as our theme. Our new class text is 'Kensuke's Kingdom', which always proves to be a firm favourite. The children will be considering the question, 'Should children be allowed out of school to travel the world?' as a balanced argument. They will also be thinking about how to stay safe in the water and putting their swimming survival training into an explanation text. Science begins with 'Animals Including Humans', where we will be learning how nutrients and water are transported through the body and the circulatory system.
This term we are being taught Tag Rugby by Mr Ridway. It is a very challenging sport but we are learning lots of new skills and rules.
See below for all of our Year 4 work. See above for our work in Year 5!
Thank you again Mrs Lowson!
We have had a fantastic afternoon and pulled some very weird faces during our 'I'm a celebrity get me out of here!' challenge. To complete our food and hygiene topic we had to choose a container and eat whatever Mrs Lowson had put in it. She has been very busy and we had a variety of nice treats to eat as well as some disgusting nasty things to eat. We had spiders blood, camels toe nails, crocodile's puss, buffalo sick. It was quite revolting but so much fun! Enjoy the funny faces we pulled and the 100 year old egg that one unlucky 'celebrity' had to eat! Even some of the staff got involved!
Mere Sands Wood
We had a fantastic time at Mere Sands wood as part of our Habitat topic. We took part in different activities throughout the day. Wildflower walk, pond dipping, bug hunting and den making! Take a look at the pictures below.
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.
