Welcome to Class 4!
Autumn 1st Half
During October, Class 4 spent a day learning 'A Play in a Day'. An actor, representing E-on, spent the day in school inspiring us through drama, song and role-play to think about saving energy. Although he delivered a very clear message about the fact that electricity is finite and we need to save it where possible, he did so in a stimulating and fun way.
At the end of the day the children performed a play to the rest of the school. The children had a great time and showed confidence, talent and enthusiasm in their performance.
We have been lucky enough to have a go at fencing this half term. Take a look below!
On Wednesday 29th June, we braved the rain and spent the day at Vicar Water. It started to drizzle just as we left school and did not stop all day! Despite the weather, the children had a fantastic day working in teams to put up shelters, find mini beasts and identify species of tree. It was certainly a trip that we will remember for a long time!
Summer Term 1st half
This half term we are learning how to read maps. We have been drawing bird's eye views of the classroom, the school and our own houses! We have also been outside doing orienteering activities. Today, because it was so warm, we have been sketching a view from the school grounds which we will recreate using water colours.
British Science Week: 14th - 18th March 2016
This year, as in previous years, we took part in British Science Week. We chose the theme of ‘Eco Awareness’ to help our children understand how we can all become more eco-aware. Each class focused on a renewable energy source and spent the week learning about it.
In Class 4, the renewable energy source we have been learning about is solar energy. We were lucky enough to have a visit from David Gray, a science technician from Garibaldi College, who explained to us how solar panels harness the power of the sun to generate electricity. We designed our own solar-powered item and we are eagerly awaiting the sun to appear, so that we can create our own microwave ovens!
Spring Term 2016
In our English lessons we have been investigating balanced arguments. On Tuesday 8th March we held a class debate, where we debated this statement -
The school field should remain open all year round.
We spilt into groups and thought of reasons for and against this statement. After the debate, we voted for the side with the best arguments. The group for the school field remaining open all year round achieved the most votes.
