This week in the classroom...

13th June 2024
 
Year 3 and 4 have had a great week of learning.
In writing, children have worked on the features of a kenning poem and this week wrote a kenning poem about water, using their knowledge from our recent texts. In reading, we have finished the story 'Rhythm of the Rain' by Grahame Baker-Smith, predicting, responding and answering questions about the whole text.
In maths, we have comtinued learning about fractions, parts and whole. Children have been able to identify shaded parts as a fraction. Year 4 children were fantastic this week as they completed the Year 4 multiplication check - well done all of you!
In computing, children used a software program called Logo to program a 'turtle' to draw the initials of their name and complete other challenges. In French, children developed their vocabulary of talking about zoo animals, before testing their knowledge using Languagenut. In PE, children focused on cricket fielding and batting skills. During PSHE, children continued their My Happy Mind program. In history, children learned about Ancient Greek democracy and its influence on the world. In science, children investigated shadows.
 
Some children competed in the 'town sports' event on Wednesday after school. Well done to all the children, who all gave their very best and displayed their wonderful, positive and sporting attitude throughout.
It was an excellent week of learning!

Year 3 and 4 have had a lovely week of learning.
In writing, children have worked on the features of a kenning poem and have written their own poems about animals. In reading, we have continued exploring the story 'Rhythm of the Rain' by Grahame Baker-Smith, predicting, responding and answering questions about the text.
In maths, we are learning about fractions in terms of whole, parts of the whole, and whether the parts are equal or unequal. We have also continued working on our recall of times tables. This is especially important for Year 4 this week, as they will be completing the multiplication check on Wednesday. To help children practise, they can use a website called TTRockstars, which we have used at school. 
In computing, children used a software program called Logo to program a 'turtle' to complete drawing challenges. In French, children learned names of zoo animals, before testing their knowledge using Languagenut. In PE, children focused on cricket fielding skills. During PSHE, children considered positive qualities that they and their classmates have. In history, children learned about Ancient Greek architecture and its influence on the world. In science, we considered how shadows are made.
It was an excellent week of learning!
