Year 4 have had an absolutely awesome start to the year!
Our children have been enthusiastic and raring to go which has been a pleasure to witness!
We started by examining our school rules:
- Be Safe.
- Be Ready
- Be Respectful.
We thought about the value of each of the rule in turn and what we were all responsible for. Following on from this, we all established our class charter – an important set of rules that we all agreed to work by.
Our birds of Sikhi study meant that we had great discussions on what their individual significance in the Sikh faith – the crane and the kite respectively. We watched videos and read various texts so that we could produce our fact files, descriptions and poems using alliteration, similes and used amazing adjectives.
Using various types of shading, we have been sketching the crane. We learnt that we do not press very hard with our pencil but must hold it loosely to allow us to have gentle marks on our paper and then gradually add detail. The ancient Japanese art of paper folding – origami was great fun and we loved making our own birds.
Science this term will examine the impact that humans have had on our planet. It is a topical unit and relevant today’s world. The children are enjoying it too.
Finally, our MAD Experience Day was an awesome packed day that all the children thoroughly enjoyed.
