Wonderful Writing

As many of you may know, the European championships began on the 10th of June. This has been an exciting time for many of you to experience sport being played by different European countries.
On Friday the 17th we excitingly had FUDGE day where Fathers, Uncles, Dads & Grandad’s were warmly welcomed into the classrooms to celebrate Fathers Day. During this time, in Literacy we were writing setting descriptions for a football stadium! The children were given two images as a stimulus.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The work produced by the children was fantastic. Check out just two wonderful pieces of writing below.

LO: I can… describe a setting

S2S:

  • Range of sentence openers
  • Different senses (see, hear, feel, taste, smell)
  • Descriptive vocab (adjectives and adverbs)
  • CHALLENGE: Extended simile

In front of my eyes, I can see a massive pitch perfect for playing football. In the distance, I can hear fans chanting my name. Some were waving flags; others wore hats and other equipment. On the ground, I can feel the soft green grass on my epic trainers. All of a sudden, in my mouth I can taste victory and fear of the other team. I can smell a hot dog stand close by. Suddenly, I can feel grass as green as a leaf on a hot summers day.

Here is another…

In front of my eyes I can see lots and lots of people cheering and waving flags, waiting for us to start the game.

In the distance I can hear bands playing and people chanting.

On the ground, I can touch the freshly cut grass.

Within my mouth, I can taste the chewing gum and the sweat dripping from my forehead.

Perfectly creative projects!

WOW!

Over May half term, the Year Four’s were given a challenge to create a project in any way they liked about our most recent history project- The Celts & Romans.

Check out the amazing exhibitions that we have got going on in class! Well done to you all for putting in a huge amount of effort.

Food and Farming

Yesterday, Year 4 went on a trip to Writtle College for their ‘Food & Farming’ event.

This was an exciting opportunity for the children to experience and learn new facts about:

  • Where our food comes from
  • Life as a farmer
  • How our food is made
  • How animals are looked after
  • How we can help the environment
  • How crops are maintained

Livestock:

There was a collection of different animals here including: pigs, cows, baby lambs, chickens, llama’s and turkeys.

Machinery Zone:

This was a live show where a range of different machinery was explained to the children. The children got to see tractors and combine harvesters. Can you believe these machines can cost up to £250,000?

Countryside and environment:

Here was a range of different elements in ways that the environment is managed and  how to look after the environment.

This was our final stop after lunch where a range of different food companies were present! Tesco were explaining about the different types of onions and if you were brave enough to try a piece- you got a goody bag!

It was such a fun day had by all!

What was your favourite part of the trip and why?
