W/C 8th January 2024

The children have settled back into school brilliantly this week and we have started our new topics for Spring Term. They have researched their new artist, Margret Preston and have also delved into the Viking's homelands and settlements. 

 

W/C 15th January

So far this week, the children have started their new DT topic, textiles. They investigated existing slippers and evaluated them relating to comfort, style and practicality. 

In Geography, we learnt about the layers of the Earth. The children created their own models and then explained a little about each layer.

W/C 22nd January 

On Monday, the children started exploring their new skill in Art, printing. They made their own pattern and then investigated the difference between printing on paper, tissue, fabric and hessian. 

The Royal Institute of Science also came in on Wednesday for a demonstration! Be sure to check out the events page for pictures and videos.

W/C 29th January

So far this week, we have discussed 'initiative' in Assembly and have set ourselves a challenge of using our initiative at least once this week!

We have also created expanded noun phrases about a Viking warrior in Literacy and will be celebrating National Number Day on Friday where the children are able to 'dress up for digits'.

W/C 5th January

This week, we celebrated Children's Mental Health week and Safer Internet Day. The children worked collaboratively and discussed the positive and negative impact the internet can have. They also created a poster about how they can improve their own mental health if they are feeling down. They had some brilliant ideas including: reading a book, participating in sport and spending time with a loved one.  

In History, we held a class debate. Some of the children held the view of a Viking warrior, explaining why it was important to invade and raid Monasteries whilst the others were the innocent Monks. It certainly sparked an interesting conversation!

February Half Term 

Reminder - After half term, the children in Year 3/4 start swimming lessons every Tuesday and Thursday starting on Tuesday 27th February and finishing on Thursday 21st March.

W/C 19th February 

The children have started the week by investigating the different ways to join materials in DT. They looked at joining using glue, sellotape, paper clips and thread (sewing). This is in preparation for making our slippers in the coming weeks.
