Welcome to Class 4!
Class Teacher - Miss Jackson
Experimenting with Place Value
In maths, the children have been experimenting with number. We have been finding different ways to make numbers to 50. The children had to represent a number using their choice of different mathematical equipment.
Today, class 4 practised their photography skills. We learned how to unlock an ipad, and use the photo app to take photographs of their friends. We are still developing the art of focusing... we will learn how to do this in our next lesson.
PSHE Day - Good to be me
Today the children learned about anger, love, loss and friendship. We discussed ways of expressing our emotions and debated whether this was a good or bad thing to do. We made hugs with special messages to our loved ones and posters to explain who you can go to to if you have any worries.
Class 4 presented a fantastic assembly about advent to their grown ups and the whole school.
After experimenting with different materials, Class 4 decided that black card was the best material to make a shadow. We also found ways to make them appear scary.
In our study unit, each child decided their favourite season and together we made a graph to show this pattern.
We found out summer was the most popular season.
In science we have started to look at what makes a scary shadow. We have been over to the Fizz Lab to experiment making the biggest, smallest and scariest shadow using a torch in teams
We have started our new topic by a hunt for fallen leaves. We have compared the types of leaves by their shapes and colours and discussed t why they are different.
To start off the term, Class 4 have been talking about what makes a good and bad friend. We have made friendship bracelets, roles on the wall and learned how we greet people from other countries. They also had the chance to create their own new greeting.
