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!
Well done to Alfie who is writer of the week in Year 4 Blue! He wrote a fantastic newspaper report all about Mount Vesuvius erupting in Pompeii. He included key features such as an interesting headline, a by-line and included lots of quotes too.
You’re going on the WAGOLL board!
This week, Year 4G have written news reports about this incredible dragon sighting above St Peter’s Primary School and Long Causeway. After examining a green-coloured dragon egg found nearby, we believe the creature’s usual habitat is forested areas.
Imagine a longship with no leaks, no splinters and no wood rot: imagine Jessica’s longships.
Well done to Jessica who is our writer of the week in Y4G! She has worked really hard this week to write a detailed and persuasive Viking advert. Her writing contained a range of sentence styles and adjectives for impact. Keep up the great work!
What a fantastic day!
