As part of our RE topic, we learned about Christingle and made our very own.
Children got creative, designing their own Christmas-themed headbands to complete the Santa Dash around the yard. There were even a few red noses, moustaches and beards to complete the look. Well done everyone for joining in some festive, healthy fun.
It was all go in Class 4 on Tuesday. Half of the class started making their Light boxes, while the other half investigated making different switches to turn the light in their boxes on and off.
To help celebrate Maths Week, today children in Class 4 completed a mini-beast hunt. We completed a tally chart to record the numbers of each mini-beast found. Using this data, we completed a bar graph.
Class 4 took part in a liturgy to celebrate the end of their R.E. topic, People. Through the topic, we learned about our own family trees and the family of Jesus. Abraham was the first of Jesus’s descendants in the bible. We also found out about Jacob, Ruth, Solomon and Joseph.
Year 4 have been investigating switches in Science. We had to make sure the circuit was complete for the switch to work.
Class 4 enjoyed a digital meet the author event, sponsored by Seven Stories and First Class Supply. Josh Lacey has just released his new book, Hope Jones Saves the World and he shared extracts from this story. The class also heard about some of Josh’s other books and had the opportunity to ask Josh some questions. We are also reading this great book in class.Watch out for our book reviews once we are finished.
Well done to everyone for their excellent efforts in completing the fun run on Friday. Most agreed that it started well, got tough after a few laps and, as we persevered, it became easier again. Some children even did more than 10 laps!
Class 4 have been busy in Science this week. We went outside to carry out a nature study, where we identified the types of leaves we found, looked at the weather, creatures we found and did some scientific sketching. Later in the week, we investigated complete and incomplete circuits in our Electricity Unit.
