What a superb day we have had! The children looked absolutely amazing in their Tudor costumes! We began the day with some portrait artwork of Henry VIII and his six wives. We then competed in some Tudor sports, archery! The children were incredible at this and we even had 2 bullseye (well done Noah and Lila!). After lunch we were invited to King Henry's ball where we danced Tudor style and enjoyed the music. To end the day we had a banquet in the classroom where the children sampled different types of Tudor food, including marzipan which went down very well for some! It has been one of the most enjoyable days and I want to thank the children for being SPECTACULAR! Thank you!
Maths- Estimating durations
In Maths, the children have been focusing on time and in particular, duration of events. They chose an activity, like making a paper airplane or push ups, then came up with an estimate- how long would that activity take? They then used stop watches to time them and compared their estimates to the actual time it took.
To end our poetry week, the children chose funny poems to perform to the class. We discussed how when we perform we use clear, loud and fluent voices. The children acted wonderfully and they were very funny indeed!
Willy Wonka Art
In art this week we have been learning about how to draw like Quentin Blake, the illustrator for Roald Dahl books. The children created some amazing Willy Wonka drawings and did extremely well to draw just like Quentin!
Hickory class had a blast (no pun intended!) using their knowledge of volcanoes to create their very own. They structured, used papier mache, painted and then finally erupted their volcanoes. They all worked spectacularly well together and we had an amazing afternoon erupting them, although the classroom did end up a little smelly from the vinegar! The children were told we could only erupt them if they could name all the parts of a volcano and as you can see from the pictures, they knew them all! Well done Hickory class!
Welcome back Year 4!
We were so thrilled to be able to welcome back all our new Year 4 pupils last week. After a long wait, it is lovely to see the positivity and enthusiasm the children have about being back in school. The first week back was full of productivity and getting to grips with new routines. The children have enjoyed sharing their memories of lockdown and the Summer Holidays as well as getting stuck into the Year 4 curriculum.
We are looking forward to supporting your children throughout Year 4 and seeing them reach their full potential ready for Year 5. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me (Miss Light)
