Where do our visitors come from?
This term, Year 4 Blue and Green have been given the opportunity to learn a number of original songs and perform them at St John’s church. Today, they travelled to the church and professionally recorded the music. A huge thank you for the opportunity.
In Gabriel’s words: “I loved recording my first album!”
This term, Year 4 have been thinking about how they can change the world to make it a better place in RE.
Based on this, pupils listened to Martin Luther King’s I have a dream speech and created their own version.
Later, they learnt their poems and performed them in front of a green screen.
Our school’s current theme is: “Everyone is a star and deserves to sparkle. Believe in yourself and you will be unstoppable.”
To go with the theme, Year 4 Blue listened to a Will I Am and Sesame Street song called “What I Am.”
They then worked together to turn the song into a poem of their own. Later, they learnt their poems and performed them in front of a green screen.
This week pupils have worked really hard preparing for assessments next week! We have looked at a range of areas but our favourite this week was converting between 12 and 24 hour time. Pupils worked in pairs to convert time and worked brilliantly together to solve problems. Great work Year 4!
After labelling the different muscles of the body, they then took part in activities on the field – we also learned how to do push ups (Miss Farrell included!)
Before the General Election this week, Year Four spent time learning more about democracy, the current election and what a manifesto is.
Then they reflected and discussed what they thought about their society and worked together to write manifestos of their own.
This week Year 4 began their North American Indians topic.
They learnt about the geography of North America and some of the early history of the people. Split into “tribes,” they each took on the identity of a different Native American tribe and prepared welcome presentations to share their learning with each other.
They then played a game which allowed them to make war or peace with each other as the tribes would have done. Amazing fun!
