Year 4 went to St. Andrews Church to celebrate harvest. They sang beautifully and shared some poems about this special time of year. Well done to all!
Harry wrote a fantastic postcard about his trip to Cornwall!
Kieran wrote a super postcard about a trip to New York City!
Tiffany has written a super acrostic poems!
Year 4 were lucky enough to have their first Public Speaking workshop, to get them ready for the competition in March. They had fun and now have much better oracy skills!
Today, Year 4 got to share books with children in the Year 1 class. It was lovely to see the Year 4 children helping the younger children with their phonics and asking them questions about their reading books.
To kick start our first topic in Year 4, we had a treasure hunt to find tickets for 14 states of the USA! When we got back into class, we had to then locate these states on a map.
Writer of the week is Alfie L for his use of descriptive language in his setting description:
Bravely, I walked to the battle with my shiny, glistening sword and my trusty shield. My team were all cramped and squished. We lined up our shields to create the shield wall.
Our topic this half term is all about 1066. For our memorable experience we recreated the Battle of Hastings on the school field. Can you remember the key events that led to William of Normandy’s victory?
This week, Year 4 have been writing persuasive letters to someone they know to try and persuade them to look after their teeth properly. Matthew wrote a very persuasive (and funny) letter to Miss Chittick. This is a small part of his letter:
“To begin with, you MUST take care of your teeth so that plaque does not spread around teeth town! Plaque is made up of harmful bacteria that stick to your teeth and it causes tooth decay and cavities. Do you want your NIGHTMARE to become a REALITY?”
Great work Matthew, I’m sure Miss Chittick will listen to you!
