20,000 Leagues Under the Sea:
Ash class have loved studying our current topic, Blue Abyss. We read a book called 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea and have thoroughly enjoyed hearing about Professor Arronox's adventures in the ocean.
Comic Relief Talent Show:
All of the talent at RHJ talent show was amazing - the two entries from Ash class tried their hardest and were brilliant!
A Midsummer Night's Dream:
Year 4 are looking at Shakespeare's play A Midsummer Night's Dream. We took one of our literacy lessons and did some interpretations of our own. The children really enjoyed learning about the different creatures and storylines in the book.
World Book Day costumes:
World Book Day Fun:
Our theme for this world book day was Alice in Wonderland as we've been studying this book in class. Throughout the day we had lots of fun including: book dating with other children, a book trail around school, a wonderful assembly on books and re-writing our own Alice themed poems. The children - and teachers - made lots of effort with their costumes and it was lovely to see the children enthusiastic about their reading.
Our topic this term is Potions, we started our topic off with investigating the viscosity of different liquids. We had to measure out different liquids such as vinegar and washing up liquid then we had to pour them through a funnel and time how long it took. We predicted what would happen and recorded our results.
In PE this half term, Ash class will be working with one of our Fit for Sport instructors and be focusing on Netball skills.,so far we've looked at the different types of passes we could use: chest pass, shoulder pass and bounce pass.
Fronted adverbial tennis:
In Year 4 we have been trying hard to use fronted adverbials in our writing, we spent the first 10 minutes of our literacy lesson on Tuesday playing 'Fronted Adverbial Tennis' this is where one person starts with a fronted adverbial e.g. suddenly and the other person has to say one back, trying to up-level their partners word. The children did brilliantly, we created a list of phrases we could use in our writing and all the children tried their best to use them .
In Year 4 this term we've been focusing on the skills we'd be using in a football game. Over many weeks we've practised and used these skills such as passing, throwing, kicking and running after the ball.
Consecutive numbers investigation:
Ash class spent yesterday's maths lesson working in pairs investigating consecutive numbers and what patterns they could find when adding consecutive numbers.
Children in Ash class have been bringing in their favourite picture books to share with the class. It has been a success in getting the children to share books and discuss their thoughts and opinions too! The children have been encouraging each other to read aloud to the class and it has made an improvement to how we're using our voices when speaking in front of an audience. Keep it up!
Maple and Ash got together to pair read on the morning of 5th December 2016. The children really enjoyed their time together and we will be continuing this reading once a week to promote reading.
Here are some photos taken during a Drama lesson where the children were asked to re-enact the Romans journey to a Celtic town.
