PE Spring 1 28/1/19
This half term in PE, Pine have started looking at the important skills required to play Netball. Their first lesson focused on the three different types of passes that can be made. They then looked at the Do’s and Don’ts of playing Netball. In the upcoming weeks they will learn more skills and practice these to be able to use them in games. They’ve made an excellent start so well done Pine class.

Over the last few weeks, we've been mastering our written methods for addition and subtraction. We've been working extremely hard on these and are now feeling very confident. We've started applying these to problem solving. Here are some examples of the challenges we've been doing this week:
On Friday 9th November, Year 4 were visited by Freshwater Theatre who put on a show for us all about Boudicca and her tribe. It was fun and interactive for all the children. We're looking forward to them coming back in January for our Viking workshop!
This week (16th October) we have been starting to create models of USA landmarks. We will then be putting in working circuits to create lamps. We have a wide range of different landmarks such as The White House, The Empire State Building, The Golden Gate Bridge. Once we've created them we will post more photos to show our progress!

On Wednesday 12th September, the Year 4 children started swimming again. We have stayed in our groups from Year 3 and will be working hard on being able to swim 25m, front and back. If we can already swim 25m, we are going to be focusing on different strokes and deep water safety. This week the children had a recap of previous learning including how to float, how to keep our legs up, how to safely get out of the pool and what to do in an emergency. Everyone was exhausted afterwards but looking forward to next week!
On Monday 10th September we had the chance to do a first aid workshop. It was called 'Flat Stanley First Aid', the workshop was all about how to look after people and help them in different situations e.g. if someone is bleeding, choking, unconscious. We also got a chance to put bandages on each other. Below are some pictures for you to see how we got on!
