This week Year 4 Blue have been learning features of a balanced argument text. They then discussed the notion ‘Children should be banned from eating chocolate’ and then wrote a balanced argument based on this.
Well done to Telaya who included key argument openers, clear well-thought arguments for each side and also added a conclusion to her work!
Keep up the fantastic writing!
Well done to Poppie who is the writer of the week in Y4B!
She has written a fantastic narrative piece based on our class novel ‘How to train your dragon’. She included a range of sentence styles, high level vocabulary and edited her work to improve it.
Keep up the fantastic work – You’re going on the WAGOLL board!
Well done to our writer of the week, Mia T, who has written a fantastic news report about our imagined volcanic eruption.
Last week, year 4 wrote reports about the recent eruption of Mount St. Peter’s. This nearby volcano threatened to cover much of Farnworth in lava.
Mia used fronted adverbials to make her writing more interesting and conjunctions to add more details.
Keep up the great work!
This week Y4G had a visit from soprano, Soraya Mafi. We had a music lesson, discussed the importance of mindset and Miss Mafi answered questions about being a singer. Fortunately, the last question from Y4G was, ‘Would you sing us a song?’. Miss Mafi’s rendition of O Mio Babbino Caro by Puccini allowed us all to watch some opera singing up close.
Here are clips from of our version of A Million Dreams and O Mio Babbino Caro.
Well done to Rome who is the writer of the week in Year 4 Blue! He worked really hard to use high level vocabulary and re-read his work to edit and re-draft a writing piece based on Jesus calming the storm. Keep up the fantastic writing!
What a strange, peculiar egg!
Using the green screen, we each gave our expert opinion on what type of egg we thought it could be.
We also practised news reporting in groups and in front of the class.
Well done to Sofia, who incorporated every part of her WILF this week to produce a fantastic news report.
She included her commas after fronted adverbials such as:
At seven o’clock in the afternoon , the dragon flew over the petrol station.
Our writer of the week also extended her sentences using the word because, which allowed her to give extra reasons and added detail.
Well done Sofia!
Well done to Lily and Ellie who are both the writers of the week! Their newspaper reports about a dragon at St. Peter’s were fantastic and included lots of key details and relative clauses which we learned about this week. Keep up the super writing!
