Class 4

Friday 10th November 2017

 

Another Friday... already! Time really does fly when you're having fun!

 

Well done to Noah and Scarlett who were in Gold Book today - you should be very proud!

 

This week we have been learning about one of the words in TEAM GB - 'equality' and the children had lots of ideas about what it meant to be equal. Here is a photo of us voting about what equality means. 

 

 

In choosing today we did lots of activities about Remembrance Day and the children had a go at making poppies! They also had a go at drawing some beautiful pictures of poppies in a field!

 

 

 

 

Have a great weekend, see you Monday!

Friday 3rd November

 

What a fantastic first week back after the holidays! We've been very busy with parent's evening and I have loved being able to tell all the mummy's and daddy's how wonderful the children are. 

 

Today we've been chatting with class 3 all about bonfire night and how to keep safe. We've been doing some really fun choosing activities all about bonfire night and the children have made some lovely pictures with black paper and coloured chalk!

 

The children have been doing some fantastic writing this week. Traction Man visited our classroom over the holidays and left lots of clues for us to find! Today we wrote a letter to him asking lots of questions about the clues he had left.

 

Next week we have an exciting week with the school disco on Tuesday!

 

Have a great weekend, see you on Monday! 

Friday 13th October 

 

We've had a lovely week this week in Class 4. The children have been reading the story Captain Brainpower and have been writing sentences all about the Mighty Mean Machine crushing all the toys on the dump pile! The children have been applying their learning from previous spelling lists to write sentences including the suffixes -ed, -er and -ing. 

 

In maths this week the children have been using + to start writing number sentences using numicon pieces to help them. They have been doing some fantastic counting! 

 

In science the children have been doing a very special super mission! Super kid had an emergency- he got all wet on his recent mission in the rain! He needed the help of Year One to find a material he could make a new waterproof cape from! On Thursday the children investigated outside in the sunshine which materials were waterproof and which weren't! 

 

As as you may know, Mrs Henshaw has now taken her maternity leave and Class 4 will miss her so much on a Thursday! But we're very excited because as of Monday we will have a new teacher to teach Class 4 on a Thursday. Ms Rumsby will be around Monday morning to meet Year One and spend some time with us, and her first full day in Class 4 will be on Thursday - we look forward to learning with her! 

 

Have a great weekend, see you Monday 

 

 

 

Friday 29th September

It's been a fantastic week in class 4 this week and we've all been really super whizzy learners! 

 

In English we've been reading 'super pigs' and the children have absolutely loved the story! We've been doing lots of work sequencing the story, acting out the story with our super hero capes, creating freeze frames from the story and doing some fantastic writing! 

 

In Maths the children have been completely amazing me with their fantastic abilities to use the symbols for greater than (>) less than (<) and equals too! They have been comparing groups and then moved onto comparing numbers!

 

Today we ended the day with a fantastic treat whilst raising money for a great charity! The Macmillan event that Miss Busby and Miss Marvin put on for us all was a great success and the children enjoyed the chance to have a cake and a drink and play a game. 

 

We also had some raffle prize winners in our class! - People who weren't there I chose you a prize and you can collect it Monday! 

 

Have a great weekend!  

Friday 15th September

 

It's been another busy and fun week in class 4! Our first full week back at school has definitely tired us all out especially as we're doing such grown up year one jobs!

 

This week in Literacy we've been talking, writing and drawing about what makes us super after reading the story super kid! we've had some lovely sentences like 'I am super because I am caring.' 

 

In Maths we've been doing lots of super whizzy counting going all the way up to 20 and back! some of us have even tried to count to 100!

 

In the afternoons we've been doing some science, design and technology, PE and some time for choosing!! 

 

I hope you all have a fantastic weekend and see you on Monday! 

Friday 8th September

Well what a busy but exciting week for all of us in class 4!! I have been so impressed with how the children have dealt with moving up from Reception! We have done a fantastic job of setting a good example to the new children in Reception now we are Year One's! 

We have spent quite a bit of time getting to know each other and our bran new environment - the reading garden has been a particular hit with all!

This week we have been focusing on a whole school story called 'the colour of home'. We've read parts of the story throughout the week and created some beautiful artwork which will be hanging on display in the corridor outside of our classroom. 

We have also been doing a little bit of phonics and maths and have been having lots of fun playing too. 

I'm very excited to get started next week and begin our superheroes topic!

 

See you on Monday!
